Today Paramount has treated fans to a teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness. This minute long teaser is just that, a teaser for a longer theatrical trailer that is coming next week. Still, it does really set the tone for the next Star Trek movie, and it looks dark. Very dark. There is also a Japanese version of the teaser that is about 15 seconds longer with a bit more footage. Both are posted below. You can watch a HD version of the regular teaser here at Apple. Also keep in mind, that 9-minutes of footage will be shown next week at IMAX screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Star Trek Into Darkness arrives theaters on May 17th, 2013.
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. 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.
