The first trailer for next year’s decolonized preboot-sequel Star Trek Into Darkness focused mainly on Benedict Cumberbatch, who is playing John Harrison or Khan or Gary Mitchell or Charlie Evans or Sherlock Holmes or whatever. A new teaser, however, puts the focus on Captain Kirk. In voiceover narration, Captain Pike chastises Kirk: “There’s greatness in you, but there’s not an ounce of humility…you’re gonna get yourself and everyone under your command killed.” Various shots of the Enterprise crew follow, along with one shot that looks like a direct reference to an extremely memorable scene from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Also, various people jump from various high places. Watch the teaser below: READ FULL STORY »

There are a great many beguiling, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them moments packed into the new teaser trailer — or, to use the odd industry parlance, “announcement” trailer — for Star Trek Into Darkness. There’s Kirk (Chris Pine) and McCoy (Karl Urban) running through some kind of dark red alien cornfield; a massive starship (the Enterprise?) rising out of the ocean; a teary Scotty (Simon Pegg) clutching a weepy Uhura (Zoe Saldana); and a determined Spock (Zachary Quinto) racing through what appears to be the streets of 23rd century San Francisco.
But the moment that is sure to spark the imaginations of Trekkies everywhere isn’t seen, it’s spoken — by the seeming villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch (i.e. Benny Batch). “You think your world is safe,” he intones darkly over shots that start out on Earth. “It is an illusion, a comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned. To have. My. Vengeance.”
You catch that? “For I have returned.” Wonder who in the Trek universe would have left Earth, only to return, filled with…what’s the right word? Wrath? Hmmm. I wonder…
UPDATE: Okay, coyness is over: As DigitalSpy first noted, the Japanese version of this teaser includes an obvious direct homage to 1982′s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It comes at the very end, and is something of a possible spoiler, suggesting the fate of one of Trek‘s most beloved characters.

Paramount tweeted the first poster for Star Trek Into Darkness, and the evocative image has a decidedly gritty Earthly vibe. The final-frontier franchise built upon the ambitious credo to “go where no man has gone before” is grounded firmly, without any of the Enterprise‘s crew in sight. Instead, we see the back of a Neo-garbed Benedict Cumberbatch, emerging unscathed from urban destruction (of his own making?) and looking out towards a futuristic metropolis. With Cumberbatch standing atop the rubble, the devastation frames him with an iconic emblem. See it below and click on it to see it even larger: READ FULL STORY »

The colon is so 20th century.
EW has confirmed that the official title for director J.J. Abrams’ sequel to his 2009 film Star Trek will be Star Trek Into Darkness. (TrekMovie.com first reported the news.)
The moniker further differentiates Abrams’ reboot of the venerable sci-fi franchise from the earlier Trek movies, which either went the roman-numeral-and-subtitle route (i.e. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) or eschewed the number for just a colon-ized subtitle (i.e. Star Trek: First Contact). But it also presents an unusual mental picture — are the stars trekking into some unknown darkness? — that only raises more questions about the film’s tightly guarded plot. READ FULL STORY »
