Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer hits iTunes

Star Trek: Into Darkness is the sequel to J.J. Abrams reboot and re-imagining of the classic sci-fi series, and the official teaser trailer is now available on iTunes. Thankfully, it looks a lot better than the decidedly not-Star Trek looking announcement trailer that preceded it. This one has, you know, the Enterprise and its crew, rather than just Benedict don't-call-me-Khan Cumberbatch acting all Sith-vengency.

You'll have to wait until next year to catch Star Trek: Into Darkness in theaters, and find out if everyone's favorite Sherlock really is everyone's favorite eugenically altered warlord (or, who knows, Harry Mudd?), but if you want to discuss it now, join me in our movie and TV forum Star Trek: Into Darkness thread.

In the meantime, you can also grab the first movie on iTunes now, as well as a lot of other previous generation Star Trek.

Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer hits iTunes


When the sequel's title was announced, I immediately thought "Uh oh. One of the main characters is going to be killed off in this one." And it sure looks like there's an homage to the major character death scene from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. (The hands separated by a transparent window, possibly a radiation shield.)

The official Paramount plot synopsis also makes it sound like one of the main actors won't be getting the call for the second sequel. No spoilers here. If you want to read the synopsis, I'm sure it will be easy to find.

It also looks like there won't be any Klingons in this film. :-(
