UPDATED: NO New Trek Trailer With Indy 4 March 28, 2008by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback
TrekMovie has previously reported that Paramount originally planned on putting out the first full trailer for Star Trek this summer (most likely with one of the May releases of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull or Iron Man). The change of the Trek release date to next May put that plan into question, but a new report states there still will be a trailer with Indy 4.
UPDATE: TrekMovie has been told no trailer with Indy.
According to the report at ScreenRant, they have a source who is “100%” certain there will be a Star Trek trailer with Indy 4 which will be a “continuation of the teaser trailer” showing construction of the Enterprise.
TrekMovie.com has not been able to confirm this report, but is is possible. We have got conflicting accounts of what is going on with trailer plans and it appears that it has been the subject of much discussion.
UPDATE: No Teaser With Indy 4
TrekMovie.com has been told by a trusted source that “things are still up in the air” regarding the next Trek trailer. However there will definitely not be one with Indy 4 or with Iron Man. The source specifically said there wouldn’t even be another version of the teaser (which was shown with Cloverfield).
Summer was Plan A, but release date changed that
In his recent interview with Trekmovie, producer Damon Lindelof stated:
As far as for the first trailer trailer, I heard we were still on for the summer to have a full trailer for the movie. But I would not be surprised if they decide to hold that back.
TrekMovie has been told by sources that there are more than one ‘sizzle reels’ that have been made and that any of them could evolve into a trailer, but that a final decision has not been made yet. If there were something with Indy 4 it is likely to just be another teaser like the one in January and not the real ‘trailer’ showing live action scenes from the film. If Paramount knew the film was going to be for May 2009, they would likely have held the teaser that showed with Cloverfield until this May. So it would make sense for them to do another ‘teaser’ with Indy to get the summer movie crowd excited, and wait until later for the first full trailer. [UPDATE: But as noted above it appears there will be no Trek with with Indy]
