There's greatness in this new full trailer for STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS

At this stage saying that I’m just a little bit excited for JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, is like saying that Darryn is just a little short. Now purists’ grumblings about the film’s action-centric slant aside, it’s hard to deny that that sequel’s first teaser trailer released earlier in the month was a bit of a gobsmacker.

Well now the first full trailer has finally been released and it has more Benedict Cumberbatch, more Bruce Greenwood voiceovers, more mysterious red planet and way more gobs to smack.

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes “Star Trek Into Darkness.”

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.

Holy Klingon Bird of Prey, Batman! I do believe that all the Trekkies just simultaneously discovered the Brown Note.

At this point I’ve realized that if I exert any more concerted brainpower on the mystery of the true identity of Cumberbatch’s villain, I’m probably going to end up looking like a Ferengi. But if you’re still at it, then head on over to Bleeding Cool, where they have possibly the most interesting of theories thus far: Cumberbatch is neither Khan nor any other villain we know, he is simply “John Harrison”, a heretofore relatively insignificant character in Star Trek lore turned into a central figure by JJ Abrams. Peter Weller, however – who is cast but has not appeared in single frame of seen footage thus far – may just be a different story…

    No longer available?? How stupid is that, something promoting the movie is removed?

    • It would seem that Paramount wants us to view the trailer through Apple. Sigh. I’ll fix it momentarily (but under duress, I may add).
