Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer

Malcolm Cook

In this extra length Japanese teaser trailer we have the extra scene we see a shadowy hand against glass and probably Spock’s just like in the Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan.


But is this a red herring and is the all pervasive Benedict Cumberbatch playing Fleet Captain Garth of Izar,  one of Kirk’s personal heroes. Garth’s crew mutinied against him when he had gone insane, the result of injuries in a rescue mission.

Giving a nod to an episode in the third series of the original Star Trek called; “Whom gods destroy” whose title has often been misquoted from Euripides; “Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.”

Whoever he is, he’s a kick ass baddie who wears a hoodie in what looks to be a cracking fight scene.

Has anyone ever seen the Starship Enterprise or one of any other name in or underwater before? That silhouette of the ship  looks quite impressive as it is predatory as shifts through the water like an orca whale going after a seal.

Hey, does the screaming blonde die first like in all the classic horror movies? Is she the mutual love interest that falls and dies oh-so-horribly for her sins?

We can only hope for such deep joy.

The opening 9 minutes, which will be shown at IMAX cinemas before The Hobbit from Friday 14 December.
