Screencaps & Analysis – Carol Marcus is a Brit?
The big reveal in this commercial is hearing Alice Eve speak for the first time as Dr. Carol Marcus. The actress is using her natural British accent instead of adopting her Americanized accent for the film (to match Bibi Besch who originally played Marcus in Star Trek II). However, we have also heard Peter Weller speaking in a previous trailer and he plays Admiral Marcus (Carol’s father). Admiral Marcus is heard with Weller’s usual American accent. So apparently there is some backstory on why Admiral Marcus’ daughter has the Brit accent – perhaps she went to finishing school in England?
Here are some caps of the new bits from the spot (sorry low resolution is all we can do for now):
Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) on board Stafleet Shuttle says: "You have a reputation Captain Kirk"
Kirk (Chris Pine) boarding a Starfleet shuttle replies: "I have a reputation" (it isn’t clear if the dialog is actually from this shot or being used as voice over)
John Harrison (Bendict Cumberbatch) fights Spock (Zachary Quinto) on floating barge above San Fransico
Spock gets Cumberpunched!
Kirk (apparently to Harrison) asks "are you coming with me or not?"
The TV spot also features a series title cards broken into segments – featuring a new slogan (possibly just for this spot):
