New Star Trek Trailer Live

Lots more hints about what's in store

Oh boy oh boy! The new Star Trek trailer is online and it's a doozy. It's got a few more plot details, some more hints about how Kirk actually ended up a Captain, and lots and lots of action. Also, smooching. Click here to check it out.

It opens with Bruce Greenwood's Captain Christopher Pike telling us a bit about James T. Kirk Sr. "Your father was captain of a starship for twelve minutes. He saved 800 lives, including yours. I dare you to do better. Enlist in Starfleet." So no pressure then.

The bulk of the trailer though is a montage of some rather spiffing-looking action scored by some seriously Dark Knight-sounding chords. It's official: we're excited. Obviously we were before - but now we've counted the days on the calendar and are currently working out how many minutes that is. Star Trek is released on May 8: if the earliest possible showing is noon, how long is that?
