So you’re saying that you don’t want to wait until Dec. 14 to see that Star Trek Into Darkness trailer that Paramount has promised to put before prints of The Hobbit in neighborhood theaters? Well, neither does Simon Pegg. And because he’s actually part of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek ensemble, we’re willing to take his latest tweet as news (and not just speculation).
Pegg just Tweeted that the trailer will debut online on Thursday, Dec. 6. “Get ready to boldly go again,” he writes. Pegg didn’t clarify where or when we’ll see the trailer, but you can guess the moment it drops, 99% of the Internet will turn its attentions to the first footage from Abrams’ anticipated sequel, so just be on alert.
What do you think that we’ll see? Based on the first teaser poster, which arrived online a few days back, I’m willing to bet Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain will be the focal point of the clip. After all, we know a ton about Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the cast of the U.S.S. Enterprise. And while it will be entertaining to see them in some form on-screen in the trailer, the real mystery to Into Darkness remains Cumberbatch’s threat, and I hope to learn a bit more about who he is playing in the footage we are show.
So, the wait for the Star Trek trailer is significantly shorter than we thought. There still will be that 9-minute IMAX preview attached to prints of The Hobbit on Dec. 14. But you’ll be able to see Trek scenes on your computer in a few short days. Let the countdown begin.
