J.J. 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 »

No doubt about it: you need to see J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness in IMAX. It’s only the fifth major studio release (behind The Dark Knight, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and The Dark Knight Rises) to be filmed with real IMAX cameras. It will have about 30 minutes of its run time in full screen, massive 70mm IMAX. Plus, it’s first of these studio IMAX films to ever be done in 3D, making it’s the first-ever feature length 3D IMAX release. A milestone.
So there’s that. And to convey the film’s size, IMAX and Paramount have released a brand new poster specific to this version of the film. The poster shows the Enterprise being chased by a ship that looks similar, but is several times bigger. That can’t be good for Captain Kirk, Spock and the crew. Check it out below. Read More »
Have you noticed that most of the late night IMAX screenings for the past year or so have been giving out limited edition posters? That tradition will continue, and expand, will the release of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness. IMAX is launching a new program called IMAX FanFix, which teams up with talented artists and curators to give fans high-quality, limited edition art. The first poster in the series is an awesome poster by Mark Englert and Gallery 1988, which will be given to fans who attend 8 p.m. IMAX screenings on May 15. You can see a small tease above.
Below, find a link to all the participating theaters, see a brand new clip featuring a showdown between John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and find out how you can bid on a chance to meet J.J. Abrams at the film’s Hollywood premiere. Read More »

Trailers! Who has time to watch them all? There are something like forty wide releases due out this summer alone. If you assume each trailer runs about two minutes, that’s about an hour and half of your life you’ll never get back. That’s time you could’ve spent actually watching one of these movies.
If you only watch one trailer this spring, then, you’ll want to make it this one. This three-minute supercut teases most of the season’s biggest releases, from Iron Man 3 to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. It’s surprisingly coherent, which may suggest that these titles aren’t as different as the filmmakers would like us to think. Or maybe it just proves that with the right music and some skillful editing, you can totally change the meaning of any scene. In any case, watch it after the jump.

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 »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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 »
