The commercial blitz for the new Star Trek is just non-stop right now. Paramount has recently aired two specialized commercials. One touts the critical response the film has already received, and another is an ‘intro’ commercial targeted for kids. Both include some bits that haven’t been seen before, check them out below.
[update: new clip and caps added]
This commercial uses new rousing music (again not from the movie), and is interspersed with quotes from Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Access Hollywood and Film.com. The spot is clearly trying to build that ‘buzz momentum’ even before the bulk of the reviews start to drop next week. There are a couple of new shots, including Robau in the captain’s chair.
Kid’s intro – Who’s Who On The Crew
The second commercial is running on Nickelodeon and is aimed at getting kids into the new Star Trek by introducing the characters. This version introduces Scotty, Bones and Kirk with clips from all three (including some new stuff). It looks like there will be other ‘intro’ commercials for more cast members.
Chris Hemsworth Clip
Australian Chris Hemsworth was on an Australian morning show where they interspersed his interview with clips of him playing George Kirk.
