    First, watch the international trailer…

    …then watch the Japanese trailer–with possible spoiler?

    Watch and discuss.

    The trailer looks like Inception meets The Avengers.

    One of the things about teasers that always bugs me is that it seldom teases something I want to see. This trailer doesn’t really give me anything to get me excited.

    Granted, once I see the SECOND trailer, then I’ll be happy to see it. Star Trek 1 was good and I expect Star Trek into Darkness to trek into enjoyability.

    Who thinks the title of this movie isn’t any good? Is Star Trek /into/ darkness, or is the star /trekking/ into darkness.

    Alexander! Haven’t seen you on here in a while. Glad to have you back.

    I like your second reading — like the title is an injunction: “You! Yes you, Star. Star, go ahead and Trek Into Darkness.”

    Maybe it has something to do with forming a black hole (maybe that’s what the few seconds of firey lava looking stuff is in the trailer).

    I can’t believe that anything in the trailer is an accident… even the bit in the Japanese trailer that looks similar to the death of Spock in Wrath of Kahn. Maybe it’s misdirection?

    It’s a misdirection. That’s Spock, but that’s not Kirk.

    Erigion Well Actually

    Am I the only one who would trade the existence of Inception just to get rid of the BRRRRRRRAAAAAWWWWRWRRRMRMRMMRMRMMMMM that has infected every action movie teaser/trailer?

    Matt! It’s good to be back. OTI is probably my most-consistently listened to podcast. I’m happy to finally get on the forums.

    So, I saw the 9 minutes of scenes before The Hobbit, and they were pretty exciting.

    The color in the movie was really cool — as was the 3D effect used with the volcanic embers; I could almost feel and smell them (there were also 3D embers in The Hobbit, the 3D embers in Star Trek Into Darkness appear to be executed better).

    Especially considering the name, I found this very encouraging. What I don’t want to see is Star Trek meets Dark City / Terminator Salvation / Colin Farrel Total Recall Remake — where everything is gray and complicated and noisy.

    While the scenes didn’t introduce much “darkness,” they did show a lot of color and light, which leads me to think the film will contain a visual study in contrasts, and I always enjoy those.

    As for the story, it didn’t really say anything. The scenes were pretty disposable, and they predictably gave each character one or two lines of “development” that were delivered with brassy old-school Hollywood framing and nailed really fast before moving on to something else. So there isn’t much to be said for the emotional life of the movie.

    But the tableau of Spock meditating in the about-to-erupt volcano was pretty cool, even if I don’t really think Quinto’s Spock is nearly as cool with dying as he pretends to be.

    Anybody else see the extended trailer?
