New Star Trek Into Darkness International Trailer To Debut Online At Midnight + Check Out 2 New Stills

TrekMovie first broke the news that a new longer Star Trek Into Darkness trailer was coming with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which opens next week. We have now been informed that this new international trailer will be released early – specifically midnight tonight. Paramount has also provided us with a couple of new Into Darkness images. Check it all out below.  


International Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer Coming Midnight Tonight

Paramount’s international arm has decided to release their new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness a week before it will be seen with screenings of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The new trailer will debut online at Apple Trailers tonight at midnight (or 12:01 AM Thursday March 21st – Pacific Daylight Time). Like with the ‘announcement trailer‘ which was released in early December, there will be many localized versions of this new trailer (UK, Germany, Russia, etc).

The new trailer is expected to be around 2 minutes and 20 seconds long and you will be able to see at as soon as it goes live. Shortly after the release TrekMovie will also have our usual shot-by-shot analysis. Until then, Paramount has provided a couple of preview images (below). These images will also be made available via the new Star Trek app.

The new trailer coming at midnight is being described as the "international trailer" and will be attached to international screenings of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which opens worldwide next week. However, being that there doesn’t appear to be a new domestic version of this trailer, screenings of the G.I. Joe movie in the US and Canada will likely include the recently released ‘alternative teaser’ which premiered with Oz The Great and Powerful (see that below). This means that a "theatrical trailer" is still to come for domestic theaters (likely sometime in April). It isn’t known how closely that domestic trailer will resemble the international trailer which will be released tonight.

Intense Star Trek action; it doesn’t get any hotter than this!

March 20, 2013 3:09 am

They say Wednesday night at midnight, well technically, that would’ve been quite a few hours ago, because it’s really gonna be Thursday when it’s released. Not Wednesday. It’ll have ended. Sorry. LOL.

Oddly, when I saw Oz in the theatre (not in 3D) it didn’t have the Trek trailer. Although every movie I’ve seen in the last six months seems to have the trailers for that Tom Cruise movie and the Will Smith/M. Night movie… I’ve yet to see a STID trailer on a movie screen, and I see a lot of movies.

March 20, 2013 3:18 am

I did indeed read the story– I get that there hasn’t been a trailer apart from the Oz thing — but wasn’t the teaser supposed to be out with tgeHobbit? So are these only attached to specific movies? I’d thought that maybe it would have appeared with other films… I don’t know how anything works…

March 20, 2013 3:20 am

Difficult to determine which of the three looks the most intensely disgruntled as they are pretty even in that regard within these new shots. ;)

A new trailer, definitely exciting!

March 20, 2013 3:52 am

Too little,too late. Oh well,still gonna see the movie since I already bought my ticket. Could pop over to London and watch it May 2nd.,lol! Doubt I’ll do that though.

March 20, 2013 3:56 am

Cool. Thanks for the explanation… ;)

March 20, 2013 5:03 am

Y’mean we in the US don’t get the newest trailer?

I saw the new “kid-friendly” one with Spock telling Kirk about his flying, “I don’t think that qualifies” – that trailer rocks! [And “Oz” was kinda fun too]

but I was hoping we’d get to see the newest one? No?

“I don’t think [the US] qualifies”?

awwww ….

March 20, 2013 5:03 am

Oh! Upon re-reading …

“Belay my last”

March 20, 2013 5:05 am

My guess with the still of Kirk & Spock is that this is probably after the attack on the Starfleet meeting. Spock’s undershirt looks a bit dusty on the upper chest. Now to wait to see if the scene the still is from is in the new trailer tomorrow.

March 20, 2013 6:54 am

Like many trailers, it looks like the editors have mined the film for cliches.

March 20, 2013 7:27 am

Do you realize how much of a pain in the ass you are? Who else thinks that’s what Pike really said?

March 20, 2013 7:40 am

#13. I honestly heard ” pain in the ass” also.

I hope it’s better than the last. So far, the trailers for this movie have been less than stellar. The first, 2009 Star Trek had much more engaging trailers.

This new one looks OK, but so far not as good as Trek 09.

Lt. Dakin
March 20, 2013 8:14 am

Gargen Grove, CA. It is immediately west of the Outlets at Orange, just off the 5. The grounds at the Crystal Cathedral are open for self guided walking tours. I just went 2 weeks ago.

March 20, 2013 8:58 am

I see Mr Abrams has been up to his location shooting trickses again! Good catch, Lt. Dakin ; )

Maybe we should have a location challenge … tho since I only know parts of Long Beach and the San Fran Bay area, I might be at a loss.

Next trailer, see how many locations we can spot?

You know, I am absolutely overjoyed that in the 2009 film and the forthcoming one, the same uniforms that were used in TOS are worn by the crew.

But does anybody else thing it would look great if the crew of the Enterprise all wore baseball caps that had ‘Star Trek’ written on the front?

I thing it would really great and really compliment the uniforms

March 20, 2013 9:39 am

In Australia they had the 9 minute opening/preview thing instead of the preview- i was so pissed as I had chosen not to see it.
Thank’s for the spoiler warning, oh wait you guys said it was a normal trailer on OZ!

March 20, 2013 9:50 am

What’s with Kirk always wearing black instead of his command gold?

Mad Mann
March 20, 2013 10:01 am

22: Baseball caps with Star Trek written on it? Is that a joke?

But, anyway, I too love the old red/yellow/blue uniforms. I think that’s the best part of the reboot. I think the updated versions are the best Star Trek uniforms of all time. TMP pajamas were lame, the TWOK-TUC military ones were too, well, military-looking. The TNG movies uniforms were almost all black like they were ninjas or something.

The red/blue/yellow unis are perfect. I also like how they are in use but the characters wear dress unis, academy unis, etc. for some variety in the movie.

March 20, 2013 10:18 am

Everyone is dressed in black. John Harrison is a Ninja.

March 20, 2013 10:22 am

24 – It must be the variant they are going for.

I for one would like to see instead an updated version of the famous green command tunic.

March 20, 2013 10:30 am

So, “Punch it!” is the new “Engage!”

March 20, 2013 10:47 am

WIN WIN WIN! Thanks for telling us! :D

@20 – Using current domestic locations for “future” Earth…he shot the UK scenes in LA so ILM had to stick some of LA’s skyscrapers into future London!

Freeze frame the bombing shot of the London skyline, there are a few towers from LA’s downtown there.

Spock looks so cranky. Did Khan spit in his lemonade?

March 20, 2013 12:46 pm

They could wear baseball caps, rubber arm bands for when they jump in the sea and legwarmers to keep warm.
Baseball caps… I ask ya

March 20, 2013 12:57 pm

This looks like a picture of kirk and spock.

March 20, 2013 1:46 pm

I have noticed in the trailers thus far that we never see the crew in their multicoloured star fleet uniforms. I wonder if this is a conscious decision by JJ Abrams to remove them from promotional materials to distance it from the low budget 60s show that is apparently such a turnoff for international audiences?

March 20, 2013 1:47 pm

Because aparently everything has to be ‘dark’ and ‘edgy’ these days…

March 20, 2013 1:48 pm


I was thinking the same thing. The only thing I can come up with is that maybe when officers are on Earth and they’re not wearing the grey formal dress-wear (like we saw Spock wear in the Kobayashi Maru hearing scene), they take off the coloured part of the ship uniform to just show the black undershirt.

I have no idea of the logic of this, it’s just a shot in the dark.

March 20, 2013 1:58 pm


You think the multicoloured uniforms are a TURN-OFF for international audiences? First of all, let’s get this straight, there’s only one audience and it’s the WORLD audience. Secondly, as an international audience member (as you would label me), I find that idea beyond ridiculous. The coloured tunics are one of the things that makes Star Trek what it is, as it was one of the things it was most identified with when it was first released in the ’60s. Why would non-American audiences dislike such a legendary part of this legendary franchise?

#24 its cos he’s a bit of a bad boy now. Goda wear black if you are a bad boy. He’ll have some black leather on at some point, for sure.
He’ll have his cigarettes rolled up in the sleeve of his tee-shirt next.

Thank goodness, another trailer. It seems like at least several moments have elapsed since the last one.

“punch it” (and chrome throttle) are fracking stupid =(

“I told you it would fit…” is fracking stupid (and a rip-off) =(

big fish on Scotty’s “engineering display” is fracking stupid =(

and on, and on, and on… FRACKING STUPID! =(

JJ and boborci are Illuminati operatives tasked with making Star Trek look stupid. =(

…and the sheeple LOVE IT! …it sickens me (barf) =(

#22 i’m guessing you meant to say ‘Star Fleet on their baseball caps’?
Bit too Star Trek: Enterprise for me.

March 20, 2013 3:25 pm

I wonder if there is going to be a YouTube version also. I have trouble with the ITunes versions or maybe I can’t use these infernal machines.

#41 indeed, some of the dialogue on show so far is lame. Not least the supposed ‘wit’ from Spock, ‘i’m not sure that qualifies’
Holy crap did the writers leave the script in the hands of their 13 year old nephews or something? Oh hang on, it was their 13 year old nephews who wrote Transformers so they’ll be in their late teens now- so probably will have sharpened their writing skills by now.

Still not feeling the love but I have an order of popcorn all lined up anyway. If only so I have something at hand that I can throw at the screen

#41 & 44- Oh, Jeezus, yes. Luc Besson is less cliched than JJ et al.

Do audiences and farancise fans really fall for this cliched, flared-up mess? Judging by these boards, I guess ‘yes’, but damn people…

March 20, 2013 3:40 pm

“big fish on Scotty’s “engineering display”? No, that was a big fish swimming by the Enterprise to take a peek and so it should ‘n’ all.

BTW, I am one excited “sheeple” I’ll have you know… Baaa

41. I am not Herbert… you are correct. you are not herbert. you are an idiot

March 20, 2013 3:56 pm


Yes that’s exactly what I am saying.

International audiences outside of the English speaking countries and Germany do not like to watch Star Trek and the last thing they would do is pay money to go and watch it. So it makes sense that they are going to try to make it NOT look like Star Trek and instead show it has moved on from the low budget roots into big action adventure. I think people in these foreign countries believe Star Trek is some children’s tv rubbish with people dressed in pyjamas and they aren’t interested. That’s why they are moving away from the old uniforms.
