‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ International Trailer Gets Personal [Updated With Images & Poster]

Published 2 years ago by , Updated March 21st, 2013 at 4:56 pm,

While recent buzz surrounding Star Trek Into Darkness has shifted slightly towards the future in light of news that director J.J. Abrams will shockingly, yet fittingly direct Star Wars Episode VII, the latest teaser trailer and full international trailer are re-focusing fans on Screen Rant’s most anticipated film of the year.

Let’s forget about Star Trek 3 possibly releasing in 2016, the 50th anniversary of the franchise, and who make takeover to direct while Abrams producers, and instead enjoy the most revealing look Into Darkness yet.

The first full Star Trek Into Darkness trailer, gloomy and awe-inspiring, teased the much desired return of the Enterprise crew and threw them into a series of intense, emotional albeit disconnected action-packed sequences. Much of the scenic destruction and chaos depicted seemed to be caused by a new, intimidating and powerful villain who we later learned was named John Harrison. Later, the Super Bowl trailer showcased a little more of the USS Enterprise, falling apart, while the mysterious Harrison claimed that he’s better at “everything” than Kirk.

With the international trailer, we now see clearly what John Harrison did and why Kirk leads the charge against him. Harrison is a Starfleet officer who betrays them for reasons we do not yet know. Unlike Nero from this film’s predecessor, Harrison is a villain Abrams says audiences can feel for and understand, so expect twists and turns and story much more than a simple tale of revenge.

The second one-minute teaser last week, presented young Captain Kirk getting disciplined by Admiral Pike, inter-spliced with a Star Wars-esque chase sequence. For long-time fans, seeing and hearing Kirk take command of his crew and the Enterprise was refreshing to see after all the marketing thus far has been unsurprisingly dominated by Cumberbatch’s voice and presence. Now we see them face-to-face, and their confrontations put into context.

UPDATE: Did you notice this sexy shot of Alice Eve in the trailer (we’re fairly sure you did):

Well, that little “glamor shot” was actually a clever diversion! In the background of the image there is a URL that unlocked a new Star Trek Into Darkness poster!

Official Star Trek Into Darkness synopsis:

In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

The Star Trek sequel stars Alice Eve, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Bruce Greenwood, Chris Pine, John Cho, Karl Urban, Peter Weller, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana and is directed by J.J. Abrams off a script by Alex Kurtzman, Damon Lindelof and Roberto Orci.

Star Trek Into Darkness opens in theaters (regular and IMAX 3D) on May 17th, 2013. Select IMAX 3D theaters will open May 15th.

  1. Alice Eve in underwear is nice, but i would have prefered Diora Baird who got cut out in the 2009 film, lol.

    • nice?

  2. Lots of action. Will probably be fun. Doesn’t seem much like a Star Trek movie. I guess I’m just old.

    • Dont judge a film upon its trailer

    • Thank you for the dignity of stating you are old. I probably am too.

      So many people throw the, ‘Reboots are f**king with my childhood’ line around like cinematic growth for a new generation to keep a franchise alive is a sin, and Hollywood is in debt to their childhood. Sigh.

      Thank you, perspective and maturity is such a breath of fresh air.

      • I agree with that. But at least these new Trek movies don’t appear to be total and utter crap (yet) like Xmen or Transformers.

  3. This looks absolutely fantastic. What won me over? “I will walk over your cold, dead corpses!” Lol EPICNESS!!! I can’t wait for this movie. Although, I am a bit confused about this villain now. I mean, does her have powers or not? They didn’t really show anything that hints at that in this trailer. But maybe I missed something…

  4. So far this is my favorite trailer for the movie my top three 2013 movies are Iron Man 3 Star Trek into Darkness and Man of Steel this looks great

  5. Wow.

    Cumberbatch is gonna kill it. I really hope he can become the next great movie star after this.

  6. I still don’t see the url. Better keep looking…

  7. Niiice… to many things in that trailer… very nice.

    • Woah, hang on, just found it. Got to enlarge the pic then it can be read on the panel behind the bulkhead. Well done picking that one up SR. Think I might need a new prescription for my glasses before seeing this in the cinema!

  8. Alice Eve she have been Emma Frost in X-Men, not that crappy actress they have doing it now.

    The trailer is pretty damn awesome by the way.

  9. Looking really good, The Enterprise looks like it gets rather trashed though, wonder if we’ll be seeing a new design in the 3rd instalment?

  10. Great job on all of the images!

  11. starting to feel like section 31 w/ this trailer
