Watch: Latin America Star Trek Into Darkness TV Spot Features Scotty, Keenser & more

Another international promotion for Star Trek Into Darkness shows some glimpses of new stuff from the movie. This time it is a new TV commercial from Latin America, which shows us a creature from the movie along with Scotty and Keenzer getting their drink on. Watch it below with TrekMovie’s screencaps and analysis (minor spoilers).


Latin America Commercial

This new commercial (dubbed in Spanish) is running in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America. It seems to emphasize some of the lighter moments in Star Trek Into Darkness.


Latin America Commercial Analysis  (SPOILERS)

The trailer contains a few new elements, here is a breakdown of what’s new.

Kirk (in disguise) in Nibiru shoots creature

McCoy isn’t happy that Kirk stunned their getaway beast

Dialog (translation)

McCoy: That was our ride!

Kirk: Ah, great.

Scotty (wearing some kind of 23rd century leisure suit) and Keenser hang out in a bar/club

Dialog (translation)

Scotty: You were just there, staring at me like an oyster!

Spot the Bud?

If you look closely at the bar scene you will see a bottle of Budeweiser.

Although subtle, this would be the second Star Trek movie to give a shoutout to Budweiser. In the 2009 Star Trek movie – again in a bar scene – Uhura orders a Budweiser.

And that isn’t the only connection. Parts of scenes from Engineering and other parts of the USS Enterprise were shot at a Budweiser plant for the 2009 movie and again for Star Trek Into Darkness.

So in total inclding all the clips and nine muinute footage i’ve probably now seen about 15 minutes of this movie…please no more footage marketing people!

Okay. How soon until someone complains about Keenser and/or the Budweiser bottle? I for one enjoy seeing more of what life is like outside the structured environment of Starfleet.

Hey, not only are our flora red here on Nibiru, but so are our critters!

Chris Pine’s face … :)

The guy who dubbed Scotty sounded like him. Wow! But who left that Bud on the table? Looks like neither Scotty nor Keenser is taking heed of it :)

I really look forward to seeing this movie … 20 days ….

Not complaining about Budweiser (even though it certainly wouldn’t be my choice of beer…) but oh my, those lense flares…
btw. Did someone notice how Pegg’s hair colour in that bar scene is much closer to his original hair colour than in other scenes we’ve seen?

The Budweiser product placements are probably a nod to the groan-worthy location where the “Engineering Deck” set was filmed. It’s mind boggling that Abrams chose to shoot there again.

Anyone else think the soldier-looking dude in the bar scene (on the right hand edge of the screen in the shot of both Scotty & Keenser) with the wrap-around sunglasses is a subtle reference to Geordi La Forge?

The scene with Scotty reminds me of McCoy’s bar scene in Trek 3.

You don’t have to watch all the trailers you know? It’s not the law. They make different trailers with different focuses for different countries. It’s your own fault if you watch them all and ruin the movie for yourself.

I wonder how old Keenser is…

With all those millions of trailers and adds we probably we have already seen a quarter of the film by now.

@ 10 At least 21! ;)

@6 that’s the smiling guy who was then cropped out XD

“The scene with Scotty reminds me of McCoy’s bar scene in Trek 3.”

For once, we agree. :-)

The thing sure looks great, but the spoilers I’ve read have not been encouraging. (Nor have the reviews, which promise more of the same as we got in 2009. They mean that in a positive way, but for me that’s not good news). Still, I’ll go in with my fingers and toes crossed. Mr. Orci may have a hard time buying this, but I sincerely want to like this movie.

It appears we still have “Budineering”…

Well, I’m pretty amazed that they kept the engineering deck as a brewery. Also, having read the spoilers, which appear to be correct, I am really, really disappointed and have lost most of the enthusiasm (such as it was) for this movie. I cannot be specific without spoiling, but the whole thing reads like something I’d expect one of those amateur fan productions to come up with; the awkward mash-up of greatest hits characteristic of bad fanfic in general.

A whole new universe to play with, and we get a rehash. It’s baffling, and very disappointing. But then, I guessed that soemthing wasn’t quite right about this as soon as I saw Spock blurting out the “needs of the many” cliche incongruously in the volcano.

Boldly going where Trek has gone before, clutching a bottle of Bud.


Don’t forget the groan-worthy shout-out to Michelob from TVH. Remember Michelob? Beer?

Looks like AB InBev has a much larger fish to fry with “Trek” these days……

Budweiser? Yuck. Why could it not be a Sam Adams?

The Budweiser engineer must go in the next one! I really hoped with all the devastation to engineer at the end of ST09, they’d find it easy to introduce us to a whole new engineering section. Hopefully, the ship will be even further damaged this time so that a complete refit will feature a real main engineering department instead of the brewery…

That is the ONLY thing that bothers me with the new movies…



So funny. Back in the fall, people were whining that there wasn’t enough Trek movie news. Now we hear whining about too MUCH information.

Just can’t make fans happy, huh Anthony?

I wonder if Scotty’s been dubbed with a really poor accent.

Did someone notice how Pegg’s hair colour in that bar scene is much closer to his original hair colour than in other scenes we’ve seen?

Simon Pegg is naturally dark brown.

If the rumours are true and this is a rehash of a previous movie I’m not going to complain. Almost ALL superhero movies (which I class as sci-fi) reuse old villains and never really introduce anything new so I don’t understand why the fans are in uproar because this is standard fare when rebooting movie franchises.

There’s also a new shot of Bones with what looks like an explosion and the Vengeance in the viewscreen behind him.


It’s a different thing. Superhero movies are bringing another medium (comics) to the big screen; Trek already has an enormous screen canon.

Back at the start of talking about this sequel, I said I was concerned that they would do this, turning it into a “greatest hits compilation”, and that appears to be what, disappointingly, has occurred. It looks like what we’re going to end up with is just a standalone trilogy of whatever fanw*nk they wanted to do their own version of.

The problem with this is it goes nowhere; as in superhero franchises. We’ve now watched Spiderman’s origin twice in less than ten years. Batman now has to be rebooted again, so we’ll have to sit through some other take on Bruce’s parents get killed, and, oh, the Joker again. It’s just ever-decreasing circles.

Once this mob have finished their trilogy, what next for Trek? Another tiresome reboot? Another “origin” story? What is the matter with these people? Have they really no ideas of their own?

@25 To be fair we did not get Superman’s origin in 2006 with Superman Returns. That was not an origins tale, but a sequel. The only previous time Superman’s origin has been told on screen prior to this year’s Man of Steel was 35 years ago in Superman The Movie.

Worse than a rehash of a Trek plot is a rehash of 1990s straight-to-VHS Oliver Gruener / Van Damme stories. What I read in the spoilers is sad, but as a long-suffering Trekkie I will soldier on and just hope the character stuff is as good as in the last one.

@15. Ian B

‘…Spock blurting out the “needs of the many” cliché incongruously in the volcano.’

This ‘cliché’ is (in the Star Trek universe) a well-known and ‘oft-quoted’ Vulcan axiom attributed to Surak. Of course, in real life, it’s a quote from Dickens’ ‘A Tale of Two Cities’.

JJ Abrams and company have said that people don’t need to know anything about Star Trek, or even have seen the 2009 movie, to be able to appreciate STID. For that audience, the ‘cliché’ is not cliché…

For the rest of us – well, while the Star Trek Ongoing and Countdown to Darkness comics are not required pre-reading for STID, they do provide a setup of where crew such as Kirk and Spock are character-wise going into STID. From these comics we learn that Spock has been so affected by PTSD that he has in fact been putting the ‘needs of the few’ over the ‘needs of the many’ and acting impulsively in the performance of his duties. It is only just prior to the Nibiru mission that he is brought to realise the error of his ways, so the ‘needs of the many’ will be very much in the forefront of his mind in the volcano.

Undoubtedly, as both this Vulcan axiom and the Prime Directive are introduced to the audience very early on in the movie, they will be prominent themes within STID.

20 – So true. Some super hardcore fans seem to exist to be outraged at the “mistreatment” of their beloved franchise. Meanwhile – this is shaping up like the coolest movie of the summer, one that guarantees the franchise will remain (and most likely branch out into some platforms that will be more to the super hardcore fans’ liking – like a new TV series or two).

…I wonder to what greater extent Budweiser will be watered-down a couple of hundred of years in the future? Will there be any actual BEER left in it?

Yeah, should’ve gone for Sam Adams, or Stella – even Amstel.

Budweiser “would become the alien trash of the galaxy.” :)

@22: Dark brown? – Nah, he’s definitely red-haired. Keep in mind that he usually sports a red goatee; I’m pretty sure he doesn’t bleach and dye it…

The water and plasma recyling processing parts of Engineering were simply the bulk of what we saw in 2009. We’ll see more of the ‘control room Engineering’ parts this time from what I’ve heard.

In the end… who cares. If the story’s good you can make sheet rock and styrofoam boulders work.

Is that the first Star Trek Leisure Suit?

“Shot at a Budweiser plant for the 2009 movie and again for Star Trek Into Darkness.”

Why, oh why?

The water and plasma recyling processing parts of Engineering were simply the bulk of what we saw in 2009.

IIRC, we saw the “warp cores” shooting out of the Bud plant too.

Come to think of it, all they need are a few windows and floor polishers and we’ve got a remake of Space Mutiny!

I hope that Simon Pegg’s Scotty is much better this time.

@31… It is possible for people to have different colored facial hair to their hair color trust me I live with that curse my facial hair is red while my natural hair color is brown

The WORST part about the Bud product placement, is that the bottle appears to be Scotty’s!!


While Scotty has a reputation that he’ll drink anything alcoholic, Bud is among the last of the beverages I would expect him to drink by choice.

#33 “Is that the first Star Trek Leisure Suit?”

Nope, McCoy sported one when he came aboard the Enterprise in ST:TMP.

As much as I love Simon Pegg, I hope that he does not get used as “the comic relief” character in this movie at all…

#38…the reason Scotty is drinking that Bud is probably he lost a bet with Keenser…

Everyone stop the griping already and just go enjoy a good MOVIE! I’m going to go enjoy a great Star Trek flick.


Save some money for other parts of production, and do something other than perform against a green screen?

@42 John from Cincinnati


KHAN you believe it?

Kirk kills an alien AND Budweiser is back……….

Now I’d enter a contest to win a drink with Scotty and Keenser…


Right? You’d think a Scottsman would have better taste in beer. :P

Not to sure why some people get so bent out of shape that engineering on a starship is going to have tanks and pipes and conveyances and plasma generators and life support and power generators and impulse drives and thrusters and machine shops and all sorts of stuff. The idea that life support is a box with an on/off switch is just silly….

@48…and yet don’t seem too irritated that the Enterprise-E could be controlled by a cheap brand PC joy stick or that Nomad could bring Scotty back by simply “repairing” him like you would a machine

You people will complain about anything.

6 months ago: Show us footage! Give us something! You’re not telling us enough! You’re not telling us anything! You’re killing the movie!

Today: You’re showing too much footage! You’re spoiling everything! Rehash! NuTrek is the suck!

Just shut up stop complaining and wait for the premiere already.
