The first teaser trailer for JJ Abrams' next Star Trek Into Darkness has been released. I do like the title (numbered sequels are rubbish), but if I were releasing a trailer for a sci-fi film with Benedict Cumberbatch as the villain, I'd want to focus on how sexy and amazing Benedict Cumberbatch is and not distract attention from that with hyperactive fit-inducing flashiness...



Explosion, smash, splash, scared crowd, crash, gurning Kirk, explosion, CUMBERBATCH, massive spaceship crash, explosion, cheesy voiceover, poor imitation of Christopher Nolan, explosion. 

No JJ Abrams, you're not pulling off a Christopher Nolan. (Neither are you, Zack Snyder.)

To be fair, this is only a teaser trailer, and there's every chance that the film will have a higher explosion:Cumberbatch ratio. But if not - Sherlock series three was delayed for this?
