If you haven’t spent your day constantly re-watching the “Into Darkness” teaser trailer on your PC at work, there’s a good chance that you A) Don’t have to use a PC for your work or B) Are Fluffrick and are sadly compelled to rock an office PC so antediluvian that it might as well be considered a Steampunk artefact.
If, like this blogger, you had to wait until home time to catch the new J.J. Abrams‘ “Star Trek“ movie’s teaser trailer, no doubt you’re trying to form words and phrases which can fully encompass the splendiferousness with which your gentle eyeballs have been subject to.
The best that I can come up with is a onamatapeaic noise which sounds like a small child gargling jelly compulsively. All teaser trailers are meant to pimp the biggest, boldest moments of any blockbuster, but this first look is impressive as much for lead bad guy Benedict Cumberbatch’s superbly gravelly, unrelenting grim voice-over which offers a tantalising suggestion that the shiny-happy territory of the rebooted 2009 film is being jettisoned in favour of “Wrath of Khan“-style, “I can’t believe they did that!“ character offing and high stakes scares. In fact, if you’ve watched the slightly longer, Japanese teaser trailer for the film, the “Wrath of Khan” comparison seems more than justified…
Go and press your face against the screen HERE if you haven’t seen the trailer. And then watch it 25 times. You know you want to…
