It’s finally here! The first teaser trailer for Star Trek: Into Darkness. And it starts on a rather dark note, with Benedict Cumberbatch telling us “You think your world is safe. It is an illusion.”
What is with the look and feel here? Did J.J. Abrams watch The Dark Knight Rises one too many times? Not only do the posters feel like Batman, but the visuals in this trailer do as well. I almost expected the camera to show us Benedict Cumberbatch as freakin’ Bane (IGN is speculating that he’s Gary Mitchell, but there has been no confirmation of that.)
Needless to say, watching this trailer does not really feel like Star Trek. What do you think?
