Up till now, Star Trek Into Darkness has promised us lots of destruction and mayhem, but this new trailer promises us something different: a Kirk who's on a tear, and a villain who's genuinely affronted by Kirk's actions.

Sorry, I can’t get over now watching Spock and thinking that he’s a turd burglar.
I can’t seem to get past the first image . . . nom nom nom nom nom
I, Claudius was on the other weekend, I was able to get it out of my mind that Derek Jacobi was gay.
by the way, Patrick Stewart (Picard) is Serjanus in that series.
Spock is not a homosexual, I do not know about Leonard Nimoy.
The guy playing him in the new one is.
Patrick Stewart (Picard) is Serjanus in that series - with hair too!;)
Then you’re really not going to like the new scene with the Vulcan “butt-meld”.
Bad guy surrounds himself with red shirts? That’s not very smart.
Nah, this was in production before Skyfall came out. I’d say that both Skyfall and Into Darkness are taking a cue from the same material, Chris Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
Nimoy has been married twice.
Sandra Zober (19541987; divorced; 2 children)
Susan Bay (1988present)
Looks good to me.
BTW, It just hit me while I was watching that preview: Star Trek is like James Bond. We will be treated to movies every year or two for possibly many decades.
Same with Star Wars.
Get with the times dude! It's not Leonard Nimoy anymore...it's some guy named Zach Quinto (I think) and he is publicly gay.
Regarding the trailer, I liked it. There are plenty of Star Trek fans that think it ought to be about people sitting in conference rooms talking out their problems, and then having a drink in the lounge while they talk about their problems until finally solving their problems by invoking some magic fake technology at the last second which leads to everyone agreeing that talking is better than fighting. But not me, I grew up watching the old show in reruns in the 70s and I'll take good old fashioned space adventure over new-age pop psychology and technobabble baloney any day.
In before the mandatory...”What is this crap? I never watch the movies and you shouldn’t either!” posts.
Yes! I guess CK is still around 200 years from now.
The trailer looked like good old-fashioned space opera: high adventure, epic battles, etc.
I look forward to seeing this latest installment....it looks pretty good.
Into darkness...we seem to be living that now. Obama doing a pretty good job.
I haven’t seen I Claudius in years. Maybe time to check out amazon and get a copy.
Here's the direct link to the trailer and I'd rather watch a Star Trek remake of Skyfall than The Living Daylights or The Man with the Golden Gun.
Sad thing is since his character had no emotion and really never interacted socially with women, it’s not that much of a leap.
Especially with a Michael Giacchino soundtrack.
Well, there is that seven-year thing Vulcans go through.
Ahhh...you have seen “Galaxy Quest”...:)
Well, those people should be happy, too. I spied a conference room in that preview.
Derek Jacobi is gay ? But he’s so virile, so macho...
I was a bit reluctant to, but I watched the trailer. It looks like Earth is a cross between the remake of “Lost In Space” and Coruscuant in “Star Wars” (with a little bit of “Blade Runner’s” Los Angeles thrown in for good measure, albeit everything as clean and sterile as a Canadian city).
The helicopter shooting out the conference room is a rip-off of the scene in “The Godfather III.” And destroying the Enterprise AGAIN ? Ramming it into Alcatraz and then taking out bunches of San Francisco skyscrapers ? Whut ?
I was just waiting for the Stay Puft marshmallow man to show up, but this time shooting laser beams from his cold, dead eyes.
Call it what you will, but this will never be Star Trek.
Just got through watching Shogun that we got from Amazon
Gonna have get I Claudius too.
It’s been confirmed that it is not the Enterprise crashing into Alcatraz and then into San Francisco Bay. It is a different starship with different wider nacelle pylons.
Have a look at a shot by shot analysis of the new trailer.
Yes, but I think it exploded. That's how you satisfy both audiences!
Anything to do with Spok fudge packing? :/
Spock being a cross of two different species, human, vulcan he would probably be sterile. :o)
Could be, but he also practiced Pon Far, so he did try. ;-)
I don’t know but would never tell if I did..
Leonard Nimoy is not Spock.
Spock is not a homosexual. I do not know about Leonard Nimoy...nowhere in that statement did did I say Nimoy was Spock.
However, as a side note, Nimoy did write a book called “I am Spock”.
“...promises an intense battle of wills.”
shogun...wow..forgot that one. Read the book before the mini-series, just damn factor with that story.
This looks amazing. I think Cumberbatch will steal the show.
Here in Spain, we are eagerly awaiting the version... with Spanish subtitles!
Yep, it is... to die for--
I see a huge opening box office... with a real surge in hot chick attendance.
