Commercial skipping DVRs, we hardly knew ye and other tales of really good technology that vanished.
Picture this: Gollum will be directing Smaug.
Let’s cut to the chase. Unlike the misfired Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness (STID) is an extremely good Trek film. While not perfect, STID gives us a well-paced and action-filled 132 minutes with all the characters we know and love (Captain James T. Kirk, the Vulcan first officer Spock, the cantankerous doctor McCoy, and the rest of the crew), along with moments film-goers are hoping to see…and more than a few they won’t see coming.
You have but to google the words “release date” and “Star Trek Into Darkness” to learn that the highly anticipated sequel to the 2009 reboot of Star Trek will be released on Friday, May 17. But you—and Google—would be wrong. Recently, Paramount announced that the general, non-IMAX, release of Star Trek Into Darkness has actually been moved up to May 16. (The IMAX release remains at Wednesday, May 15, at 8pm.) Here’s why.
Star Trek Into Darkness won’t be beaming into our theaters until May 17—which makes this the perfect time for Paramount to tease us with three “Disruption” trailers. Instead of the good space-faring fun of the other clips that have recently been released, these clips are far more dark. It shows Starfleet’s new nemesis coolly analyze Captain Kirk, first officer Spock, and communications officer Uhura for weaknesses that he intends to exploit.
We know almost nothing about John Harrison, Kirk’s nemesis in the upcoming movie Star Trek Into Darkness, the sequel to the 2009 reboot of Star Trek. Thanks to the international trailer, we learned that he’s brilliant and dangerous. But we learned something even more important about actor Cumberbatch: He makes an absolutely fantastic villain.
