‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Super Bowl trailer debuts online

- February 4th, 2013

Between the wings, dip and beer, you might have missed the plethora of movie ads studios dropped during last night’s Super Bowl.

There were new spots for Star Trek Into Darkness, Iron Man 3, Fast & Furious 6, The Lone Ranger, Oz The Great and Powerful and World War Z.

My personal fave was the Into Darkness spot.

After months of teasing, we get a fresh look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain going mano a mano with Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk. Very Hannibal Lecter-y.

“I’m better,” the steely Cumberbatch says.

“At what?” Kirk replies.

“Everything.”

There are also new scenes of the U.S.S. Enterprise plummeting towards Earth and Spock (Zachary Quinto) in a volcano. And the new trailer comes with a new tagline: ‘Our world will fall.’

For extreme Trek fans, Paramount has revealed a new app for the film.

Not to be outdone by Trek, Marvel released an extended trailer for Iron Man 3 that kinda irritates with a Downey gag off the top, but we do get a look at a pulse-pounding sequence in which Tony Stark has to save passengers after Air Force One is attacked. Thirteen people are careening towards the ground and Iron Man can only rescue four. Hashtag: #superheroproblems.

Have you ever stayed up late asking yourself what happened before Dorothy landed herself in the land of Oz in The Wizard of Oz? No? Me neither.

But when I heard Disney was releasing Oz: The Great and Powerful – a prequel to L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel and the 1939 film adaptation – I thought, ‘OK, I’ll bite.’ Especially when I heard names like Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp (he was linked to the film at one point with Tim Burton directing).

Well, instead of Downey Jr. or Depp we’re getting James Franco (as Oscar Diggs aka The Wizard of Oz) and Sam Raimi (who directed the original Spider-Man trilogy).

Diggs starts things off in black and white as a circus magician who finds himself balloon-bound to the wonderful world of Oz. There are a lot Burton-esque visuals and three witches (Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz) who wonder if Diggs is “the great man we’ve been waiting for.”

No word on whether the Scarecrow, Tin Man or Cowardly Lion will make a cameo.

The movie comes out on March 8, 2013.
