Last week we got an announcement teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, and now comes a longer version, which offers more footage and further hints towards links to Wrath Of Khan – including Benedict Cumberbatch’s dialogue and the hand touching at the end – although whether than means Cumberbatch’s ‘John Harrison’ is really Khan still isn’t known.
Eagle-eyed viewers also spotted links to a viral site, AreYouThe1701.com. At the moment if you click on the link it simply allows you to sign up with your e-mail address and birthdate, and promises to ‘tell you when the search begins’. Hopefully more will be revealed soon.
Here’s the film’s synopsis: ‘In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
