Trekkies, we’ve waited a long, long time, but now it’s finally here: the official teaser trailer for the sequel to 2009’s awesome Star Trek reboot, Star Trek: Into Darkness. And it does not disappoint. It’s about one minute of pure action – brooding music, explosions, flashes of our new favorite characters in harrowing circumstances, basically, the goods.
How’s this for dark: “You think your world is safe. It is an illusion. A comforting lie told to protect you,” intones the dark voiceover, presumably from Trek newcomer and Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch. “Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance.”
And of course, the official description, courtesy of the iTunes trailer page:
The movie is due out next May (the 17th, to be precise). Raise your hand if you’ll be in line on day one in a Starfleet uniform (or Klingon regalia).
I’m hoping for more classic Trek goodness – action, humor, and smart underlying themes wrapped up in a tasty, sexy package. The wait through the winter will be long!
