It wasn’t too long ago that the first teaser trailer for Star Trek: Into Darkness was released and while it looked pretty awesome, there wasn’t a lot to it. Actually, there were two teaser trailers; one from the US and one from Japan. You can check them out at our earlier post: Star Trek: Into Darkness – Official Teaser Trailer(s) if you’d like.
Our friends over at Save Sci-Fi have brought glad tidings of a new, full-length trailer that was reported on by Faster Than Light News. This trailer gives us a much longer look at the film and it definitely looks darker, but not so dark that it doesn’t have that Trek feel to it.
As you may already know, Benedict Cumberbatch plays the villain in this installment and he also provides most of the voice-over for the trailer. Besides filling up many of the scenes with extreme Cumberbatchiness, he has a line near the end that might indicate his character is a villain we could actually feel some sympathy for.
There are plenty of scenes involving lots of running, jumping off all manner of things you wouldn’t want to jump off of, and tons of splodey things. I love me some splodey things. Oh, and we get a better look at the Enterprise taking a dive into the water, which is pretty impressive.
Sherlock seems pissed. Really pissed. While we don’t find out exactly why he’s so pissed or why he’s out to kick everyone’s ass, he utters a line near the end that might give a clue: “Is there anything you would not do for your family?”
One might guess that something tragic happened to his family and he’s out for vengeance. Or maybe his family is being threatened somehow and he feels the only way to save them is to blow up everything in his path. One thing’s for sure; Benedict Cumberbatch is going to make one hell of a bad guy.
Here’s the Plot Synopsis from IMDB.com:
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
The trailer looks good, the synopsis sounds good, and hey, it’s Star Trek so that’s good. The only thing that’s not so good is we have to wait until May 17, 2013 to see the full movie.
