What we learned from the new 'Star Trek' featurette: almost nothing

star-trek-trailer

Leave it to J.J. Abrams to release a behind-the-scenes featurette of his new movie that contains basically no new footage and yet is still totally compelling.

In a just-released behind-the-scenes look at Star Trek Into Darkness, director and crew chat about the making-of the sequel in between video clips mostly pulled from the previous trailers. It has the effect of: a) showing you very little new information while also b) reminding you how nice it is to hear Abrams & Co. talk appreciatively about the Enterprise & Co. A play-by-play:

'Fanboys' director Kyle Newman on J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars' takeover

Kyle Newman is an American born filmmaker and a frequent guest on the Star Wars-centric podcast RebelForce Radio.

The speculation was over. After months of scrolling through endless online banter I received a text heralding the news. “JJ” is all it read. But those two letters meant a lot more. The most hotly debated gig in entertainment had been filled. Star Wars: Episode VII had found a director. For a second it seemed surreal. Not the choice — that was inspired; but the fact that the powers that be were actually making a new Star Wars film… and this film would be brought to life by J.J. Abrams the director of Star Trek.

Benedict Cumberbatch on playing a villain: Will 'Star Trek' feel his wrath?

They share the face and the brandy-hued baritone, but you could never mistake Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch for the prickly savant of the BBC’s Baker Street — not only is the actor relentlessly polite he’s also never clubbed a cadaver in the name of scientific inquiry. The sleuth may have shined through for a moment last summer though when Cumberbatch showed a Holmesian impatience for unanswered questions and state secrets. “It’s achingly irritating,” Cumberbatch said when asked about the secrecy surrounding his role in this May’s Star Trek Into Darkness. “Believe me, I’d rather talk about the role and the fantastic story and all the things J.J. [Abrams] has come up with. And then everyone would be as excited about the film as I am. But then of course I think I would be on a phone call coming from J.J.’s office…” READ FULL STORY

'Star Trek Into Darkness' trailer: A deep dive

star-trek-trailer

The new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness doesn’t betray much of the mystery movie’s plot — at this point, all we can confirm for sure is that pesky ol’ Benedict “Benny Batch” Cumberbatch is up to something, and Kirk & Co. are trying to stop him. However, there are some intriguing clues hiding inside the jam-packed trailer, including peeks at major battle scenes and a shot that appears to directly reference a famous scene in The Wrath of Khan — which must just be a coincidence, because Benedict Cumberbatch says he’s not playing Khan, and Cumberbatch wouldn’t lie to us, would he??? Anyhow, read on and ponder:

Star-Trek-1

The trailer opens with some eerie shots of the Enterprise, completely empty. Is it just in dry dock while the crew takes a much-deserved shore leave? Or could this be an image from later in the movie, when — for one reason or another — Kirk and his pals have to abandon ship? Could it be that, at some point in this movie, Chris Pine will get to put his own spin on the immortal self-destruct phrase, “Code: Zero, Zero, Zero, Destruct, Zero.”

'Star Trek Into Darkness' teaser: The Wrath of John

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

'Star Trek Into Darkness' teaser: Benedict Cumberbatch is out for vengeance -- VIDEO

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.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' poster: Starfleet in shambles?

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
