Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser Trailer

Paramount’s kept a steady stream of information going for its new Star Trek movie, and within the span of a week or so, the company’s released a synopsis, a poster, and today’s teaser trailer.

The trailer begins with the words, “You think you’re safe,” spoken by the movie’s villain (Benedict Cumberbatch) who’s probably responsible for the onslaught of destruction, explosions, and mass mayhem. Viewers get to see the Enterprise rise out of the water, a fight scene in which Benedict’s character knocks over someone with what looks like a futuristic mini-gun, and if the synopsis is correct, what looks like sabotage on a major scale from within the Federation.

Some have pointed out the teaser trailer seems to have Nolanesque elements with its blaring soundtrack a la Inception and its villain’s monologue a la The Dark Knight. With the poster being praised/criticized for also sporting similarities to the Dark Knight Rises poster, one wonders if Abrams and Co. are simply claiming the throne left void after the Batman trilogy ended, or are  simply going with what works. Maybe they hired the same advertising agency. All of the above, or none of the above, what matters is whether it gets people into the theater.

Judging by the reveals so far, Into Darkness, which comes out May 17, 2013, looks to be a big box office draw.

    Any guesses on who the villain might be?

    If you watch the Japanese teaser, there’s a very short scene at the end which makes me think the villain could be…

    I don’t think it’s Khan. :P I think it’s more likely it’ll be Gary Mitchell: http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Gary_Mitchell

    There are some who are saying it might be an amalgam of Mitchell and Khan. I think there’s a reason they didn’t put that small snippet in the American teaser — we would, and have, picked up on it quick. Red herring, or prelude — either way, I’m definitely excited for this movie to come out.
