Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis and Poster Revealed

Postby Sonic Glitch » Mon Dec 03, 2012 4:52 pm

Last week Paramount released a synopsis of the upcoming Star Trek film. The story can be found here and the synopsis is below.

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.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew


Early this morning Paramount also released an official Promotional Poster for the film.

Why not? That's effectively what Space Seed and WNMHGB were. I wonder whether the baddy's going to be Khan, Gary, or someone new who's a bit of both.

Hmm.....I admit I am intrigued but on a general note I don't get it why everything has to be so "dark" nowadays. I do hope there is also some humor and that they find a good balance. Star Trek was also pretty dark imho (blowing up romulus and vulcan) and I was hoping for a more upbeat movie.

Now the poster is not "BAD" but am I the only one that thinks that it looks like the bastard child of "the dark knight rises" poster and The Matrix? :roll:

What the hell does that even mean? I'm guessing typo.

Probably meant to do another improper use of the word decimated.

I just hope that it isn't another planet based movie like Voyage Home and even Insurection. I watch Star Trek fro trecking through the stars... not for walking around southern California.

I concur. It is called "Star Trek" after all, not "Global Trek".

Don't get me wrong, I am not against any and all ground fall... I just do not what that to be the "adventure" part of the movie.

Actually aside from The SlowMotion Pictire, the movies have been a mixture of planet side and space stuff.

Its good to have parts of the movies set on planets, nice to see the different worlds etc. I love to see different planets and environments. But preferably more of the action should be in space, IMO.

It seems like the studio is now explicitly taking the Trek franchise in a direction designed to make it more popular to mass audiences. They've had great success with a core audience of Trek fans but they ran out of steam with VOY and then ENT and it seems like they decided it's hard to please fickle geeks and continue to milk a cash cow that way. With the success of the first Abrams movie they realized they could in some sense de-geekify Trek and sell it a bit more as a space action oriented series than the cerebral show it began life as.

Update: Pre-teaser trailer Released.

Since this is being called an "announcement trailier" I'm kind of reminded of Jon Stewarts Pre-Announcement Announcement for the Rally to Restore Sanity two years ago.
