In a movie weekend dominated by a year-high performance from Oz: The Great and Powerful, a new teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness made its way to theaters and hit online.
While only clocking in at about 1:10, the teaser is probably the most intensity-driven one we've seen thus far. Yet, the dominant recurring theme that we've been seeing remains in regards to the cockiness of Chris Pine's James Kirk and his caution-deficient attitude, which may have bitten off more than he can chew. Indeed, the scene of Bruce Greenwood's Captain Pike chewing out Kirk over his latest haphazard happening seemingly resembles a cigar-smoking, black-coffee-chugging Precinct Captain frantically screaming at the protagonist's reckless ways in some 80's buddy cop movie. However, for Kirk, a much-needed lesson in humility may soon come in the form of the film's (still mysterious) grand villain in Benedict Cumberbatch's John Harrison; an ex-Starfleet officer who, in the wake of some horrific tragedy has gone off the deep end with an agenda of destruction on Earth, beginning with a 23rd century London.
This new teaser has packed in just about everything: Close shave escapes, space base-jumping, hot inter-species romance, demonstrations in flame-retardant fashion, and the Enterprise possibly doing its best maritime tribute to SeaQuest DSV. Check it out below...even if you've already seen it.
