Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer Beams Up

With that ominous teaser poster released just a few days ago, we knew that the inevitable teaser trailer had to be on its way sooner rather than later, and sure enough, early this morning Paramount offered up our first real look at some of what to expect from director JJ Abrams' highly-anticipated sequel Star Trek Into Darkness (still not digging that title, but c'est la vie):


I have to admit, I do find it somewhat amusing how many dyed-in-the-wood Trek heads online are losing their minds with cries of "That's not Star Trek!" over less than two minutes of out-of-context footage. Heck, for all I know I may end up agreeing with them, but not yet, because as now we just don't know enough. This is meant to convey tone (dark!) and not plot.

And since we don't know, I won't bother speculating on what represents what or who's playing who. That said, we do get looks at the key crew, Captain Kirk and Co., and a whole lot of havoc wreaked by Benedict Cumberbatch as the villainous...uh, not Khan. For now EW has five key takeaways from these 90 seconds, and click past the jump for a slightly-extended Japanese edit of this teaser.
