STID Trailer Reveals All!

Finally, the Khan rumors can be put to rest. Star Trek Into Darkness will not be an updated retelling of everyone’s favorite Trek film (though that would probably be awesome,) rather it’s shaping up to be so much more.

The just released international trailer for STID (that abbreviation makes me feel like I need to go to a clinic) gives us a lot more insight into 2013’s Villain of the Year – John Harrison.

Some slight spoilers follow so if you don’t want to know I suggest you run, not walk, to your nearest exit (preferably stopping by the gift shop on your way out.)

Still here?


We learn that John Harrison, portrayed brilliantly by Benedict Cumberbatch, is a Rogue Agent. Think Skyfall but substitute Romulan Ale for shaken martinis. This “Bourne” again agent turned terrorist has a grudge to settle with Starfleet and in the process crosses one Captain James T. Kirk, who decides to take matters into his own hands, doing whatever it takes to derail this madman’s plans even if it means alienating his comrades and doing a trench run even the Falcon would be hard pressed to match.

And somewhere in there Carol Marcus takes off her clothes.

This is the first real story driven trailer to be released and it does wonders to get the green blood flowing. The acting looks strong. The story looks strong. The actors look strong. May 16th cannot come soon enough. But don’t take my word for it, check out the trailer for yourself!
