After all the 'leaked' images and videos from the set of J.J. Abrams Star Trek Into Darkness, a very powerful teaser trailer hit yesterday and now more images from the film can be checked out below. I love the way they slipped in additional footage into the Japanese trailer as a sweet surprise for all the Trekkies. This one definitely looks to be very Captain Kirk centric as Chris Pine's face shows up a lot in the teasers. Now I can't wait to see the full one when it hits with The Hobbit movie.
Fans have been gleefully crowing that they were right that Benedict Cumberbatch was in fact playing Khan, and from the teaser plus the russian poster of Star Trek (which is translated to Vengeance), it's looking to be very much the case. Plus the extra Japanese footage definitely hit the mark pretty well.
The first Star Trek film was very even Captain Kirk and Spock (Zachary Quinto), but the preview definitely gives him more action time, but we'll see if the balance shifts with the first official trailer hitting in a very short time. After seeing Quinto's interesting mommy fixated character in Amerian Horror Story: Asylum, it took me a moment to readjust him back into Spock mode. For those of you that have seen this season's show, you'll understand what I mean.
Here's a big slew of new images to check out until the next trailer hits from Hobbitland.
[callout title=Star Trek Into Darkness Movie Synopsis]“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.
