Star Trek Into Darkness International Trailers Analysis

This new trailer is heavy on the action, which makes sense for something aimed at audiences outside the USA where Star Trek often under-performs (especially non-English speaking countries). But there is still lots of Star Trek goodness to analyze, so lets take a deep dive. NOTE: This shot-by-shot analysis uses the Australian version of the new international trailer as a base case. There are a few differences with some of he other versions and that is noted at the end of the article. As this is the fourth trailer, the analysis will show just new shots that haven’t been seen in any trailer or commercial.
