UPDATED: The third trailer for the new Star Trek movie premieres tonight along with the midnight showings for the new Watchmen movie. Like the movie, this epic trailer should be seen on the big screen for your first time. However, if you can’t wait, or have seen it already and want repeat viewings, then it is now available to view online, see it below in HD.
Prepare For The Beginning
Star Trek Trailer #3
Official site updated with music and more
In addition to the new trailer, there has also been an update of the official site. The most noticeable thing is that there is now some background music for the site, could it be from Michael Giacchino’s score? Also the recently released new logo is now available as a desktop in various sizes (under ‘downloads’), plus there is a new ‘coming soon’ section called ‘Dossiers’…that sounds interesting, we will have to keep an eye out for when that gets updated.
UK version trailer
A slightly different version went live in the UK earlier Thursday and that can be viewed in the following embed.
Best Trailer Yet — This is exciting!
It is fair to say that this is the best trailer for the film so far, and probably the best Star Trek trailer of all time. It gives you a sense of the epic scale of the film while both highlighting the sci-fi action and at the same time showing the film has character moments as well. This is also the first trailer to really get a sense of Nero and the threat he poses, showing that he is one seriously angry bad guy — who knows a thing or two about James T. Kirk. While it would be nice to see more moments from the ensemble, the message of this trailer is clear that this film will show Kirk’s journey from that bar room brawl all the way to command of the Enterprise. And every Trek fan should get emotional at the moment that Kirk takes that chair, for the first time.
