Now, this is what we’re talkin’ about. Following up on that ominous little one-minute teaser from two weeks ago, Paramount Pictures has finally unleashed a full-length theatrical trailer for its long awaited “Star Trek” reboot sequel “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
While the first promo warned of the “illusion” of safety and peace on earth – with Benedict Cumberbatch introduced as the breathy foe – the villainy gets a little more personal in the two-minute trailer.
Looks like good ole’ Captain Kirk (Chris Pine)’s gotta pay the piper for all that flare and hubris he’s been toting around outer space since movie one.
He’s warned, “There’s greatness in you, but there’s not an ounce of humility. You think that you can’t make mistakes, but there’s going to come a moment when you realize you’re wrong about that. And you’re going to get yourself and everyone under your command killed.”
As the explosions, screams, gunshots and watery shipwrecks ensue, the toll is clearly being taken. The fact that his pals Spock (Zachary Quinto), Nyota (Zoe Saldana), Bones (Karl Urban) and Dr. Carol (Alice Eve) are so blimey distraught looking doesn’t help matters for Kirk, either.
“You think you’re safe. You are not,” the Batch warns. Oooooh, this is gonna be good.
“Star Trek Into Darkness” opens May 17, 2013.
