A new commercial promoting Star Trek XI is due to air in Super Bowl XLIII, but fans are already getting a peek of it courtesy of YouTube.
As found on YouTube, fans of Star Trek XI won't have to wait until Super Bowl Sunday to see the new Star Trek XI commercial.
The thirty second ad is just one of the commercials slated for Super Bowl XLIII, in which the Pittsburgh Steelers will go for their sixth Super Bowl Championship, playing against the Arizona Cardinals who are seeking their first Super Bowl win. (Go Steelers!)
A thirty-second commercial is setting advertisers back three million dollars. Most ads will be thirty second ads, at least one will run for fifteen seconds and a handful will run for a full minute. The ads took until almost the last day to sell out unlike in previous years, due to the economy.
The first half of the Star Trek XI commercial features James Kirk. His first meeting with Leonard McCoy is shown, and the rest of the commercial is fast-paced action scenes.
