Apparently that first one was just what J.J. Abrams and Co. are calling an “Announcement Trailer.” That’s fine by me because it now gives us this, which is an even better trailer and something that convinces me even more that this deserves the top spot on my most anticipated list for 2013:
This is going to get TONS of Empire Strikes Back comparisons based on the potentially dark subject matter and possibly unhappy ending, and dammit I hope it does everything that Empire did for the Star Wars trilogy.
The current rumor (unfounded, currently) is that Spock isn’t going to make it out of this film, what with Zachary Quinto saying he doesn’t have an interest in staying with one character for a really long time and that final shot of the trailer certainly lends some credence to that idea. So I put this to you folks… if Spock goes down in this movie, are you angry or just sad? I know I’d be both, that’s for sure.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out and I can’t wait for mid-May of 2013!
