Star Trek Into Darkness: Watch the expanded trailer

- December 18th, 2012

Star-Trek-Into-Darkness

After the first teaser trailer earlier this month, we’re getting an expanded look at next summer’s Star Trek Into Darkness .

The new ad is very much focused on Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk and shows as a longer take of the ‘Red Forest’ chase scene that ends with Kirk leaping off a cliff.

In a voice over, Kirk’s boss Christopher Pike (played by Bruce Greenwood) admonishes the young captain. “You have greatness in you,” Pike says as the camera pans over Kirk. “But there isn’t an ounce of humility. You think 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.”

Heavy stuff.

We then get another dose of Benedict Cumberbatch (as the film’s villain), who repeats his chilling line from the earlier trailer: “You think you’re safe. You are not.”

Things go boom, but we finally get some scenes off Earth (yay!) and two cool sequences: One of Kirk hurtling through space and another of someone from Starfleet jumping off a skyscraper.

Zachary Quinto (Spock), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Simon Pegg (Scotty), John Cho (Sulu), Karl Urban (Bones) and Anton Yelchin (Chekov) make brief appearances, and the trailer once again ends with that nod (or is it?) to Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan.

Check out the trailer and let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Star Trek Into Darkness opens May 17, 2013.

    This movies seems to be a lot of people falling. One jumps from a cliff. Another from a skyscraper. One plummeting towards Earth. Someone else slides down a tilted hallway. No doubt, they all survive these falls too.

    NOT Khan….Gary Mitchell.

    From another poster elsewhere on the Internet, check out Season 1 Episode 3 which in titled “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. The answer? “Into Darkness”. The villain is Gary Mitchell and he’s a member of Star Fleet Academy (hence the Star Fleet uniform you see the villain wearing).

    @Derek That sounds so crazy that JJ Abrams may actually be running with that. That’s not meant as an insult btw, not at you anyway, but at Mr. Let’s-Go-Blow-Up-Vulcan. But hey, who’s going to play the Sally Kellerman character? Damned if I can remember her name in the episode, Dr. Elizabeth Danner or something like that.

    P.S. Yes I absolutely will find or create any excuse to make damn sure I put in something about JJ Abrams blowing up Vulcan in any post here about Star Trek. I hated the 2009 movie (not just for Vulcan but that took the cake) and although I will watch the new one with a spoonful of sugar (Nutella actually :-) ) , I expect to hate it too.

    The trailer looks amazing and I can’t wait to see it already. JJ Abrams did a fabulous job with the first one being respectful of the original series and adding a fresh new look to it as well. I have no doubt this movie will be just as good. I hope we see alot of Spoc in this sequel like we did in the 2009 movie.
