I have a feeling I'm going to spend this entire movie wishing Cumberbatch was playing Spock.
Well, there may be in the bigger trailer or the 9 minutes preview.
And maybe not many of them are finished being cgi'd yet.
To be honest I don't mind if we spend a lot of time on Earth's cities. It will be nice to see what the 23rd century looks like down there.
No way, that is a man's hand.
Boldy going where a population of billions has been before.
Watched it and I'm still really not feeling it...
Yet another revenge movie where the bad guy wants to blow up Earth? Russians got it right by just calling it Star Trek: Vengeance.
Special effects are nice.
Well, this is certainly more impressive than the trailers for any previous Star Trek movies.
There's really nothing in this trailer that suggests Cumberbatch is anyone we've seen before.
Period. Check, please.
Now, he may be an established character - no reason why not. But aside from an obsessive fanboi tendency to draw unjustified inferences from the tiniest bits of trivia, there is nothing to give one a clue in this 1:03 minutes. All one can do is take a stab in the dark and guess.
If only they get it right this time!
My thoughts exactly.
This is easily the most impressive ST TEASER ever, I don't expect a 1 minute trailer to show me everything in a 2 hour movie, but to get a taste of the "look" and feel.
"It doesn't feel like Star Trek"...odd thing to say, but maybe its because for years Star Trek movies were low budget affairs produced almost as an afterthought by Paramount by TV producers as opposed an epic, well made, big budget "tentpole" film made by Hollywood movie pros. If anything this teaser made me feel that STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS will easily surpass the grosses of ST09, I'm very confident of that now.
Well, the only thing we really know are that Klingons, alien planets, and combinations of ships and water are a major part of this movie. Well, that and vengeance is an overused motivation in the Trek movies.
Pulling for Garth of Izar as the Cumberbatch role, but Alice Eve as Denner(?) is making me wonder...
If the teaser doesn't "feel" like Star Trek, it because that's intentional. Paramount isn't trying to get star trek fans into the theaters, they trying to get everybody else.
Very nice trailer.
Is it just because of the angle or have the nacelles a different shape? They look bigger at the rear end in the rising-out-of-the-water sequence.
Then why not call it something else? If you want to base a movie from a popular franchise than have the movie be based on that, not a loosely related story with some iconic names to make you feel that it's Star Trek.
Spock is running through town behind Cumberbatch. The city is San Francisco. Kirk and McCoy run in the Red Forest. Klingons are shooting at Cumberbatch jumping on them, Kirk and Uhura seems to be prisoners of Klingons. Kirk faces Cumberbatch seated in a ship that is not the Enterprise. In the final scene a small ship falls into flames in the city, before another larger ship with nacelles falls too.
Then what would a trailer have to look like to make it feel like Star Trek to you?
Or just some big round room with corridors and stuff.
Someone on youtube was suggesting that as well and I don't see it. That looks like a Caucasian man's hand to me, which sort of rules out it being Uhura.
And if it's not Gary Mitchell, Alice Eve could be playing nurse Chapel.
I also think it would be a great alternate reality twist, if it were Kirk who dies while saving the ship, rather than Spock.
And shouldn't Uhura's hand be a bit ... well ... darker?
It's a man's hand.
