Say, wasn’t there supposed to be some big Star Trek news today? ‘cause I haven’t heard anything about it…
I kid, of course. The only thing anyone is talking about today on sites like ours is the newly released Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer. It’s being watched and rewatched and dissected and considered by zillions of geeks just like us. But let’s not forget, as many tidbits as there are in the Into Darkness teaser, we’re about to get an even bigger glimpse at the film a mere week from now, on December 14th. That’s the day that a nine-minute preview of J.J. Abrams’ new Trek film will be showing in front of selected IMAX screenings of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
If today’s teaser has you fiending for another potent dose of boldly going, you can now breathe a sigh of relief. Or possibly an angry shriek to the heavens. Either way, you can now click over to Star Trek Into Darkness’ official website to find out if the nine-minute Trek preview will be playing in your neck of the woods.
If you plan to see it, especially if you plan to see it in the very first showing on the 14th, I’d recommend grabbing tickets ASAP. This double-dose of fan service is sure to sell out fast. Hell, even if you don’t care about The Hobbit it might be worth it just to see the new look at Trek before most other people.
And if the preview isn’t showing in your area, or you simply can’t make it, fear not. We’ll be there in line along with the rest of the fans, and we’ll post a write-up about the preview ASAP on Friday the 14th.
Star Trek Into Darkness opens in theaters on May 17, 2013.
