What We Learned From The Latest Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer
The new skinny on J.J. Abrams’ action-fest

submit to reddit

We’ve had an announcement trailer, a teaser trailer and – if you were lucky enough to catch it – the first nine minutes of the movie on IMAX screens. Now there’s a new international trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness and it has a few new tidbits to reveal. Here’s what we took from the latest clips – containing some spoilers, or at least guesses-at-spoilers. For much, much more on the film, pick up next week’s new issue of Empire for the full story…

Panic on the streets of London

Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer

It’s not too much of a spoiler to say that all these shots come from a sequence early on in London. After all, you can clearly see St Paul's there in the skyline near the exploding building. Said exploding buliding is the Kelvin Memorial Archive, a Starfleet facility. Yes, that’s a nod back to the starship destroyed back at the beginning of Star Trek (2009) and another tribute to Abrams’ grandparents. We suppose it might be a spoiler to admit that Benedict Cumberbatch’s John Harrison is on the scene, but given that he’s already been described widely as a terrorist, it shouldn’t worry you too much to know that he’s linked to explosions.

2 Benedict Cumberbatch might be part of Starfleet Black Ops Unit
I wonder if Mr. Cumberbatch is a member of " officially-nonexistent clandestine organization within Starfleet Intelligence that claimed to protect the security interests of United Earth and later the United Federation of Planets. " called Section 31. http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Section_31 More

This would be a really geeky spot, but is his nose creased enough to be Bajoran? Looking at other photos of Benedict Cumberbatch he doesn't seem to have that double crease to his nose. More

The more I see the more I think it's khan- when they talk about the top star fleet agent causing the attacks that's Noel Clarke who does a deal with Harrison. Star fleets crimes against cumberbatch- letting his wife/ people die in exile on a planet- or using his eugenics enhanced people as super soldiers who are expendable. The other ship that empire are not aloud to discuss... The reliant More

I said this in the trailer article and I'll say it here; he's going to be Khan. They've said his name is John Harrison, but not one single person in the trailer has said his name, even though Starfleet Command know who he is. That, to me, screams that the name is a red-herring. More

After watching the new trailer, i think Harrison is in fact an Section 31 agent gone mad! *The bit in it when *Robocop Peter Weller (which is awesome, got that link to Enterprise series there* Admiarl says he was one of are top agents, its got to be some sort of section 31 stories. Think its a great idea, they decided not to go with something we know from the TOS, but instead carry on with something new. More

Cumberbatch looks like the only good thing about. We all know abrams only made these to get at somthing star warsy More

9 Theory
I think Harrison is one of the eugenics or a human who was then enhanced for special operations, perhaps for a certain organisation called Section 31. Perhaps the crime caused by the commanders of starfleet is how they have stored/destroyed other eugenic subjects or embryos (ENT: Eugenics episode). Either way I think the film will end with Harrison possibly escaping or trying to find and contact Khan leading up to a possible Khan movie sequel. Also I agree that the ship crashing into San Franisco is most likely another Constitution class vessel, perhaps the USS Constellation (a nod to its destruction in Doomsday Machine) More

12 Surprised if Cumberbatch is Khan
I will be surprising if Cumberbatch IS Khan, I think it's more likely that he will be another eugenic-superman. That way they can do the Khan storyline without being compared to the original and without it being regarded as a remake. Much like the new movie franchise as a whole. More

13 Surprised if Cumberbatch isnt Khan
Enjoying seeing Cumberbatch get stuck in to the action scenes. Loving him as a badass. More

14 The villain is a klingon
I reckon John Harrison is a genetically-altered Klingon agent. The crime he mentions would be something to do with whatever the backstory is between Star Fleet and the Klingon Empire. More

15 Different ship
You can more clearly see the ship crashing into the water is not the Enterprise by it's nacelles (stickey-outey-warp-engines). On the Enterprise they are far closer together, nearer the centre of the ship; whereas on the USS Crashey they are much further apart, out by the edges of the saucer section. More

16 Looks amazing
Can't wait to see this, Cumberbatch definitely looks like he's bringing his A-game (along with everyone else to be fair) and completely stoked that this is out 2 months today. Get on JJ with your spacefaring Sci-fi goodness! More
