New Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser Trailer

2 min read

Today, a new HD trailer for Star Trek into Darkness was released, with new scenes and a viral marketing clue.

The trailer is just short of two minutes in length. Spoilers are behind the cut.

Some of the elements have been seen before, but new things include:

  • A voice-over by Captain Pike cautioning Kirk about his cockiness
  • Scotty in a red shirt
  • Uhura on Qo’noS
  • Harrison surveying damage (caused by him?)
  • Many body containers. Are they from deaths sustained in an attack or stasis tubes (à la The Wrath of Khan)?
  • Explosion in a building
  • A man in a space suit dodging debris above a planet
  • Uhura kissing Spock
  • Noel Clarke’s character dropping a Starfleet ring into a glass
  • Scotty dangling over some steep drop
  • Kirk punching Harrison while Spock and Uhura watch
  • Harrison punching someone
  • Kirk shooting out a window
  • Spock jumping off of a building

The viral marketing clue comes in the scene where Harrison is in the brig (around the 1:06 mark), and can be seen in the control panel to the far right. In red lettering against the black, a website is listed: AreYouThe1701.com.

At this website, fans are asked to sign up for future updates and are thanked when doing so with the promise that “We will tell you when the search begins.” There are also links to AreYouThe1701 Facebook and Twitter pages, which as of yet, contain no new information.

  1. Its funny, because you just pulled that out of your ass to excuse your hate-mongering. The use of the word ‘haters’ has never been associated with 13-year-old boys in the slightest.

  2. With the hands touching the glass at the end (Spock’s and Harrison’s) and the family quote – Are we basically being told that this is Spock’s relative/brother? A human half-brother?

  3. If Cumberbatch turns out to be Sybok, I’ll buy you a fine bottle of your choice. And yes, I know that’s not what you said…

  4. Screw this 2 minute trailer shizz, where’s the 9 minutes that the Hobbit geeks got to see? How has that not made its way onto the internets every 10 seconds as Paramount deletes the each attempt to post it?!

  5. “HATERS GONNA HATE”—mature, reasonable connoisseur of science fiction

    also: didn’t hate-monger

    also: you’re 13, so gb2 Twitter and post about “haters be hatin'”

  6. If Cumberbatch turns out to be Sybok, I’ll be warming up the tar and sharpening up the ol’ bat’leth.

  7. It’s going to be an explosive, brutal, and violent Star Trek film. Twice as violent as TWOK was some three decades past.

  8. Oh. Shit.
    I think you may have just hit it.
    Those knuckleheads showed a penchant for worst-case scenarios in the Transformers “films” (as in, “How could we make this… WORST?”). I think a human half-brother to Spock would top every horrible, stupid thing they’ve ever done to date.

  9. Hmmm… Has there been any rumor of W. Ryder in the film reprising Amanda in a flashback or anything? If so, any hint of that, and that could well be it. Why does God need a starship, indeed.
    I just puked a little.

  10. The chances of restoring the timeline are obviously slim and none. Unless of course someone recreated the effects of the singularity that deposited the ill-fated Nero and the crew of the Romulan starship Narada in the mid 23rd Century in the first place.

  11. Screw the Narada. Spock violated the Temporal Prime Directive, and that necessitates correction. Unless, of course, this is really an alternate universe.

  12. Did you know that whales were more important to Spock than his mother and entire home planet? It was news to me, too.

  13. Alternate timeline, alternate universe, however you want to describe it, it is an alternate reality that was caused by the ill-fated Nero. Spock had nothing to do with the violation of the Temporal Prime Directive. Blame that on the Narada and its doomed crew.
