Star Trek Teaser To Debut Online December 6th

With yesterday’s reveal of the new Star Trek Into Darkness poster there were also updates to official Star Trek Facebook pages around the world, generally showing off the new poster. However the official French Facebook page also made mention of a new trailer coming online on December 6th. TrekMovie has confirmed this is true and that a teaser trailer of about a minute or so in length will debut online on December 6th, and will be available to download worldwide. This teaser is intended to be an online exclusive so it is not expected to be shown in theaters.

A couple of weeks ago TrekMovie reported that a theatrical trailer will be showing on December 14th, with non-IMAX showings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. While still not being officially confirmed by Paramount, TrekMovie has again been told by trusted sources that this theatrical trailer is still planned for that weekend. This trailer is said to be longer (over two minutes) and will have footage beyond the first nine minutes of the film, which is being shown at IMAX Hobbit screenings. According to a source, there is overlap in what footage is shown in the two trailers (December 6th online teaser and longer December 14th trailer in theaters), but each also has unique footage as well. TrekMovie has also been told that the longer trailer will be available online but not until after the first weekend in theaters.

Patrick Stewart on 'Star Trek: TNG,' returning to 'X-Men,' and Wil Wheaton's beard


The Blu-ray edition of season 2 of Star Trek: The Next Generation — available starting today — includes an extended cut of one of the show’s earliest top tier episodes: “The Measure of a Man,” in which Capt. Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) defends Lt. Commander Data (Brent Spiner), an android, and his rights as a sentient being.

The trial gave Stewart a chance to show off his Shakespearean chops with a series of stirring speeches about the nature of free will and self-awareness — Star Trek: The Next Generation at its most challenging and thought provoking. So we couldn’t resist the chance to speak with the 72-year-old actor about that episode, as well as what the 25th anniversary celebrations of the show have been like. We also asked Stewart about his recently announced return to the X-Men franchise, and his answer was quite surprising to say the least. Check out our conversation below: 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When you think about the episode “The Measure of a Man,” what first comes to mind?
PATRICK STEWART: Well, indeed, we were all very proud of that episode, because it dealt with issues in present society that we all felt were still current and important — the definition of what is humanity and if you can write off a whole race as being a subservient, second class beings. I do remember feeling when that episode came out that we were going right to the heart of the fundamentals of the Star Trek philosophy and what Gene Roddenberry had been writing about in different ways from the mid ’60s.
