Today, a new HD trailer for Star Trek into Darkness was released, with new scenes and a viral marketing clue.
The trailer is just short of two minutes in length. Spoilers are behind the cut.
Some of the elements have been seen before, but new things include:
- A voice-over by Captain Pike cautioning Kirk about his cockiness
- Scotty in a red shirt
- Uhura on Qo’noS
- Harrison surveying damage (caused by him?)
- Many body containers. Are they from deaths sustained in an attack or stasis tubes (à la The Wrath of Khan)?
- Explosion in a building
- A man in a space suit dodging debris above a planet
- Uhura kissing Spock
- Noel Clarke’s character dropping a Starfleet ring into a glass
- Scotty dangling over some steep drop
- Kirk punching Harrison while Spock and Uhura watch
- Harrison punching someone
- Kirk shooting out a window
- Spock jumping off of a building
The viral marketing clue comes in the scene where Harrison is in the brig (around the 1:06 mark), and can be seen in the control panel to the far right. In red lettering against the black, a website is listed: AreYouThe1701.com.
