WATCH: Star Trek Into Darkness US and Japanese teasers

December 6th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Well, it’s finally here… our first look at actual footage from Star Trek Into Darkness.

It certainly seems epic enough and packs a punch – those scenes of the USS Enterprise coming out of, and crashing into, the water? Wow! – in fact it’s pretty damn thrilling, but is it Star Trek?

We’d love to hear from the Trek fans out there because, to me (admittedly not a big Trek fan at all), this looks more like Transformers especially with the way it’s shot/coloured and that sound booming over the trailer. Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to see it… but what ‘it’ will be, and who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing exactly, remains to be see.

Star Trek Into Darkness open on May 11th, 2013

Here’s the US teaser:

Here’s the slightly longer Japanese teaser:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
