I have it on reputable authority that the nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness that were shown before certain IMAX screenings of The Hobbit this weekend—and which were supposed to be available only before certain IMAX screenings of The Hobbit—might have found their way online, and might be awesome. I leave you to it, nerds.
There's also a new trailer for the film, which (1) ensures us that Alka Seltzer will still exists in the future, and (2) makes it look pretty awesome. The movie, not Alka Seltzer. Alka Seltzer is fucking awful. Is this trailer as good as those nine minutes which might be available online for those who wish to look for them? No. Is it still a pretty great trailer, at least for nerds such as myself? Yes. Can I use italics at least once more in this post? Maybe.
[UPDATE: Looks like the trailer got pulled. Good thinking, Paramount! After all, you certainly wouldn't want people to, you know, actually watch the ad you made for your movie.]
