This here is actually a trailer for the trailer of J.J. Abrams’ star fleet sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. I know, trailers of trailers. Babies having babies. Usually we leave that kind of nonsense alone, but this is Star Trek, and I, personally, am ready to lap up any drops of info that might possibly come our way.
There is an infinitessimally longer Japanese version that you can see here if you want 15 more seconds of Cumberbatchian voice over and rousing, insistent bassoons. (If that’s not actually a snatch of The Dark Knight Rises score, it comes awfully close.) The film looks (unsurprisingly) gorgeous, and you have to admit it’s exciting to see all the old familiar faces back in uniform. Start Trek Into Darkness opens May 17th, 2013 and the full trailer will be released next week.
