A new trailer for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness has been released, seemingly from out of nowhere. Perhaps it's in response to the early buzz that began earlier this week after a select group of writers were allowed to see 30 minutes of the film, with a few spoilery bits of information revealed. Nothing too major, and I'm sure Abrams only showed them exactly what he wanted them to see.
Clearly targeting the multiplex crowd, this trailer features plenty of new footage and jam-packed with action from start to finish. It doesn't quite look like a Star Trek movie, though, especially with the ridiculous helmets. The best comparison I can make is to Star Wars, so maybe we ought to start looking at this as an indication of how that film could be presented. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) is heavily featured in this footage, his pain-in-the-butt reputation at Starfleet still very much intact.
Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters on May 17th.
