Tag Archive: Star Trek Into Darkness preview

The movie studios are releasing multiple trailers for coming attractions these days and this week we’re featuring four new previews from movies that already released previews that we’ve featured here at borg.com.

First up is for our pick as the most awaited movie this year.  We’ve seen a few trailers already but beginning this week–finally–is the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Bruce Willis as Joe Colton, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Ray Park.  We could watch this newest preview featuring Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes over and over.  Is this some new kind of parkour?

G.I. Joe: Retaliation begins this Thursday, March 28, 2013.

Next up is a flick we’ve seen previewed over and over–Iron Man 3.  It has a fun new movie poster, too (above).  The international preview is pretty long as previews go and reveals more footage of Ben Kingsley’s villain Mandarin than previously released.  Compared to the first Iron Man film and Robert Downey, Jr.’s role as Tony Stark in The Avengers, Iron Man 2 was a pretty weak entry in the Marvel superhero universe.  So our expectations are in check.   But this sequel is expected to unveil nearly every version of the Iron Man armor from the Marvel Comics archive, so this could be a lot of fun.  Here’s one of two new previews:

Iron Men drones?  Where can we get one?  Here’s the shorter TV ad also just released:

Spaceship chase

As with many movies these days it seems like studios release enough trailers that by the time you see the movie you already know it front to back and can even quote key lines.  It looks like the same may be true for the new Star Trek movie coming out soon, Star Trek Into Darkness, all previewed here earlier.  And this weekend Paramount released yet another preview.

Lots of great colors and “wow!” imagery, maybe even more so than with the earlier teasers and previews.  Even more story elements are revealed including many that make you want to sit down and list how many plot points it has in common with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and the other Star Wars prequels.  Depending who you are and how much you liked the Star Wars prequels, a comparison like that may or may not be a good thing.  But with J.J. Abrams locked-in to begin directing Star Wars: Episode VII soon… you just can’t help draw the comparisons.  Here’s a few apparently obligatory prequel scenes to think about as you watch this trailer:

  • Jar Jar and Qui-Gon Jinn chased on foot across the fields of the planet Naboo
  • R2-D2 suddenly having the ability of flight across a planet’s surface
  • giant vertical cityscapes of Coruscant
  • female/alien bounty hunter Zam Wesell’s lavender outfit
  • space car chase scene with cocky Anakin and serious Obi-Wan Kenobi complete with joking banter
  • Jar Jar Binks, Qui-Gon Jinn and Kenobi in a submarine craft startled by a sea creature
  • and even though it’s not from the prequels, remember Han Solo’s line to Chewbacca before the jump to light speed?

Paramount Pictures released word this week that it will provide an extended preview of the twelfth entry into the Star Trek film franchise, titled Star Trek Into Darkness, in theaters in December.

Beginning December 14, 2012, a full 9-minute scene will be debut in IMAX 3D as a world premiere release with the eagerly anticipated release of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, part 1 of 3 of The Hobbit film trilogy.  The preview is expected to be the opening of the new Star Trek movie continuing the rebooted adventures of the Star Trek crew helmed by Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto in 2009’s film by J.J. Abrams.  The preview will be released exclusively in approximately 500 digital IMAX 3D theaters.
