*yawn* So they've taken the characters from Star Trek and slapped them on generic blockbuster action movie 'splosion fest # 2,372. I know it's only a teaser, but this feels so much like any of a million other blockbuster action films. I suppose we'll see.
Same here. It's not that I am angry or disappointed, but this trailer left me cold. I just didn't care. We've seen these things a thousand times already.
That's it, exactly. It's not that the trailer looks like it will be a bad film. Just that it really looks like they're trying to shoehorn the Trek characters into the generic cookie cutter summer action blockbuster.

Can't agree with all of you more ! I really feel like they have just made it into a action-pact film instead of the normal star trek

You're not getting any more of "the normal star trek" because no one can afford to waste money on something that only a few people will pay to see.

This is how stupid the "Gary Mitchell" stuff is: I can pick out three things from this trailer - the "I have returned for vengeance" line, the "family" remark RE: McGivers, and the shot in the Japanese trailer of Kirk and Spock touching hands and claim that it's a remake of Wrath Of Khan.

Which would be unjustifiable bullshit, but then so is the MitchellHead blather.
As iu saidd beforee it couldd well be a tot
ally re imagined khan, however the revenge they would be talking about would be for Mitchell's death in the comic book... He was buried in space... Mitchell knows kirk's family. Also cumberpatch could be talking about his crew as family.
I can't see them expecting a general audience to give a toss about what happens in the comic books. This movie is made for mass consumption, not ST completists who buy the comic books.

I do agree that the 'family' remark relates to the crew. In fact, doesn't the synopsis even refer to the crew of the Enterprise being the only family Kirk has left?

Re: The Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer is here!

If Section 31 is involved (and I hope it is, I love Section 31). I'd love there to be some kind of a twist like the fact that Cumberbatch's character isn't trying to take down Starfleet or the Federation itself but is trying to destroy and get rid of Section 31 (also, I reckon Peter Weller would make an amazing Sloan-esque character).

Hard to read this thread with all this sticky stuff on my screen.

Can't Wait.

Mitchell doesn't want revenge. It's Khan or someone new and it looks like Spock's hand and the arm of someone with the under tunic. Perhaps Cumberbatch? Spock's half Brother? Cumberbatch did say he was conflicted, maybe he sacrifices himself to save the crew.

Given the cumber-jumping going on I think it's pretty clear he's playing either a genetically enhanced or otherwise uber-being of some sort.
Or simply a lower gravity world.

Or the fact that he only performs it when wearing that weird coat and the large mech arm. So not the best moments to judge that by.

The villain is clearly the pissed off, spurned, Greek god of Apollo.

that's not the issue....they made a point of saying the comic book continuity was part of the movie continuity.... Kirk and Co, kill Mitchell, Mitchell returns with power degraded, looks for ways his newly twisted mind can gain power and wreck star fleet. Mitchell was part of star fleet and knows kirk's family.

That orange glowing backdrop appears to be the same one that Abrams had in his MTV Awards skit that showed a close up of a Klingon on this computer monitor over his shoulder. So I guess before tonight we had seen Four frames.
As anyone red the IDW comics. Man does this shot seems to be the delta vega mining facility where Mitchell killed Kelso

I always try and go into a movie with a positive attitude.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture is something that many fans says was dull because it didn't have any action. This movie will have some action and like the last one it will hopefull be balanced with good character development.

@ RAMA ^Yeah, I know that the comics are part of the continuity. But that's not the same as setting up a major part of the movie's plot and arc in the comic. It's purely for completists. Expecting an audience to be familiar with these events is just not part of their plan, IMHO.
