Super Bowl spot for my own personal most anticipated film of the year.
First off, let me just say this: HOLY SHIT BALLS IS IT MAY YET?
Second off, let me say this: Seriously guys, is it May yet?
And third, Yes I am looking forward to this movie. I’m a dyed in the wool trekkie (Simon’s more interested in Star Wars news) and this looks like it might take everything they learned on 2009’s Star Trek (but couldn’t fix due to the writers strike) and ramp it up considerably. It’s teasing lots of action, and I cannot wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch as the bad guy. Some people think he’s Khan, some people think it’s gonna be Sybok, but I honestly don’t think I want to know. It’s been a bit of a tricky thing keeping myself in the dark in terms of plot details so far but I am going to do my best to keep it up as long as I can.
And a few notes:
- He’s “better at everything” eh? Lends more credence to the genetically engineered bad guy idea.
- “Our World Will Fall” eh? So is he after Kirk, or Spock, or the federation, or ?
- That appears to be the Enterprise crashing through an atmosphere. Holy moly there’s a lot of stuff going on here that’s playing up previous movies.
You may have noticed that this embed was in SD. See the HD version at Apple.com/trailers, it’s much prettier.
Seriously, is it may yet?
Update: I forgot to mention, if you have the Star Trek Into Darkness app on your phone or tablet you can unlock a slightly longer version of this spot by having the app listen to it. It’s not much longer (37 seconds vs. the 32 seconds here) but there are a few more shots. Grab it for iPhone/iPad/iPod here and for android here. And if you’re wondering if there’s any spoilery content, it does not appear as such.
