Abrams has done a pretty great job keeping Star Trek Into Darkness details under wraps, even during this last-ditch deluge of marketing materials, but little bits and pieces have been trickling out here and there. Today we have our first look at an unmasked Abrams-style Klingon from the movie, along with three TV spots, another clip, and a bunch of images. Hit the jump to see it all. Read More »

With the opening of J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek Into Darkness just around the corner, we can hardly turn around these days without stumbling across a new trailer or clip or TV spot. Today we have two new videos. The first is the Japanese trailer, which contains a bit of new footage, and the second is a promo centered on Spock (Zachary Quinto) and voiced by John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch).
In inanimate marketing, meanwhile, we have a new still of the other, non-Enterprise ship that’s been spotted in promos, plus character posters for Spock, John Harrison, Kirk (Chris Pine), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Carol Marcus (Alice Eve), Sulu (John Cho), Bones (Karl Urban), Scotty (Simon Pegg), and Chekov (Anton Yelchin). See it all after the jump.

Most of the marketing for Star Trek Into Darkness has focused on some big elements: the unknown of Benedict Cumberbatch‘s John Harrison character, the threat of terrorism, and the opportunity for Kirk (Chris Pine) to rise above his shortcomings and become an even better leader.
This clip is all old-school Trek. Drawn from the IMAX prologue to the film (meaning it takes place early in the movie) this features a classic conundrum on the bridge of the Enterprise: Spock (Zachary Quinto) is in peril trying to achieve a mission goal, and there seem to be only two possible outcomes. Either he finishes his work, and dies, or is rescued, which would result in a violation of the Prime Directive. (The directive disallows interference in the development of alien civilizations.)
We don’t get to see how this scenario (is it a training mission?) plays out, but this will give you an idea of the way that director J.J. Abrams is playing with some classic Trek elements. Read More »
General Zod isn’t the only one who can take to the airwaves to threaten the hero of a summer blockbuster. John Harrison is joining the club too. The villain of Star Trek Into Darkness, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, stars in a brand new clip where he calls out James Kirk (Chris Pine) for his cocky personality. He says he’s going to help push Kirk to the edge, making sure he goes ahead and kills the entire crew of the Enterprise.
Take that plot hint, wrap it in a good, chilling Benedict Cumberbatch monologue, and you’ve got the clip below. Read More »
In just over a month, J.J. Abrams‘ second Star Trek film, Star Trek Into Darkness, opens its regular run. (The film will actually premiere in April, with galas set for different countries beginning with an Australian event on April 23.)
As we hit the last stretch until the film opens up to a general audience, we’ve got a new international poster promising the end of the Earth, along with high-res versions of photos that have appeared in magazines and online over the past week. The pics show much of the cast — which includes Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller — while the poster continues the image of Cumberbatch’s villain as a dominating force.

In case you were wondering, yes, Kevin Smith is still pretty sure Clerks III will be his best film ever. It’s not clear whether Rosario Dawson totally agrees with that sentiment, but apparently she wants in too. Also after the jump:
- Danny Boyle dishes on the Trainspotting sequel
- Gru is an awkward parent in Despicable Me 2 clip
- Terry Crews goofs around in a Cloudy 2 featurette
- Before Midnight debuts an international poster
- New poster reminds us of Global Smurfs Day
- Get a peek at Keenser in Star Trek Into Darkness
- Listen to a bit of the Star Trek Into Darkness score
- Chris Pine was “scared” to play Captain Kirk

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There are officially less than two months until J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness warps into theaters. Doesn’t it feel like we’ve been talking about this film forever? That’s because we have. The first article /Film wrote about the film went up a mere month after 2009′s Star Trek was in theaters. You can read it here. In it, the question about the potential that Khan would be in the movie was discussed. Going on four years later, we still don’t know that answer for sure, even though the latest trailer certainly suggests it.
A new batch of images won’t add any clarity to that topic, but they will add some fire to your already burning desire to see the film. In the pics, we see several members of the U.S.S. Enterprise engaged in what seem to be heavy gun battles, and we can look at a piece of tech named MC-9321. Read More »
