But it wasn't flipped in the actual movie was it? The strangling scene?
No, not in the movie, but the trailer has a kind of rhythm of "something happening on/moving from right side of screen, then left side, then right side, etc." Apparently they wanted that shot in that place in the sequence, but flipped it so as not to interrupt or unbalance the right-left-right-left rhythm.

Ah. I had noticed that some fanvids had this scene like this and I hadn't realized it came from the trailer. I'm surprised they didn't just photoshop/whatever the insignia for the trailer.

ABOUT BLOODY TIME!!! Wow a preview AND a trailer!!

I REALLY thought this movie needed word of mouth and publicity before the end of 2012, and thankfully it's getting it.

Disney didn't break anything! Lucas is just going to be a rubber stamp, there's no way Disney paid him 4 billion dollars just to let him frak it all up again.

To Disney, Luke Skywalker = Snow White = cash cow to milk for all eternity. They made a Snow White movie in 1937, which didn't stop them from recasting the role 75 years later for a TV series. Luke and the gang are going to be like that. The role will be recast in the forseaable future and keep being recast when we're all dead & gone & people watch Star Wars on holodecks.

But Darth Vader is an even bigger brand name than Luke, so I have no doubt that a reboot of the prequel, which can hardly help but be an improvement, is an inevitability, since that's the simplest way to revive Darth's brand as an excuse to make more $$$ off the guy.

Lucas is working closely with Disney apparently, he is officially a "consultant" on the movie, however, he wrote or co-wrote a story and "has created a lot of characters"...enough to keep Star Wars going for some time to come, according to Lucas in a video interview.

As far as SW affecting ST? why is everyone asking that. SW movies were released in 1980 and 1983, ST movies in 1979 and 1984, they both did quite well. The prequels came out when ST was on a downward note, but insurrection in 1998 still did fairly well when PM was released the same year. The Episdoe 7 will come out a full year after ST:ID, so there will be no direct competition at all.

Pfft. Half the fun is in squinting at the shaky phone cam footage with tinny sound.

This was my first peek at STXI:
You know, you're not wrong there! That was fun to watch again.

Re: Trailer coming December 14th!!

Anthony at TrekMovie seems less sure about the news, but is checking into it:

@TrekMovie
I know another site is saying STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS trailer isn't going with HOBBIT. I am looking into it.
https://twitter.com/TrekMovie/status/270697735429173248

@TrekMovie
I know plans change around but I am certain there is a STID trailer currently in the works as described. Will provide update when have more

This is nice. And they posted a beautiful picture of Spock at the top. I think that was best.

Cool news. I wonder what movies are released around then. I first want to see it on the big screen.

For the Australians - it looks like we won't be getting the imax special 9 minute trailer to run with The Hobbit.

Disney didn't break anything! Lucas is just going to be a rubber stamp, there's no way Disney paid him 4 billion dollars just to let him frak it all up again....
When I said "they" broke it, I didn't mean Disney, but rather TPTB who are in charge of SW at the time (Lucas, namely).
"They" are now Disney, who is now TPTB in charge of SW, and hopefully "they" can fix it -- and they can start by making Lucas just a figurehead in this new endeavor.
