Not sure why this is an “announcement” and not a teaser, but whatever. The first 1 minute, edited for showcase before feature films, featuring a blatant rip off of the “Inception” music (to go with the blatant ripoff of the “Dark Knight” poster) for “Star Trek Into Darkness” has been thrust upon us. What does JJ and the gang have in store for us?
- I love (LOVE) the shot of the blond chick screaming (and the sound extending for a few seconds). I’ve watched the trailer a few times and it gets me every time.
- I guess we are getting an Enterprise water landing? Maybe someone will edit in a clip of Data saying he can be used as a floatation device from “Insurrection.” (Yeah, I just made an “Insurrection” reference. Take that nerdlings!)
- Benedict Cumberbatch does great voice over. Maybe he can be the next Morgan Freeman. I love the “So, shall we begin” at the end of the trailer. Gives it a good tone to finish on.
- The big question is who is Benedict Cumberbatch playing? The geek money is on Kahn. Hard to believe that JJ could keep that big of a secret though. I hope it isn’t Kahn. I’d rather see this movie live on its own. The Next Gen crew tried their Kahn/”Star Trek II” remake with “Nemesis” and that didn’t work out too well.
