While I have to admit that I liked this trailer, what bothered me a bit was that it–the trailer–felt somehow familiar, as if I had seen it before. Seeing that I am too broke to have any connect to either Bad Robot (J.J. Abrams’ production company) or Paramount Pictures, I have no idea why.
Then it hit me: If somehow feels like the trailer for Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers.”
I know it’s (probably) nothing like Whedon’s film, but the trailer tonally seems similar.
And wasn’t Benedict Cumberbach (BBC’s “Sherlock”) supposedly not playing Khan, from the original “Star Trek” Episode “Space Seed,” as well as “Star Trek: Wrath of Khan?” Listening to his character talk, as well as looking at him, it seems like Khan.
And apropos of nothing, it’s great to see that Abrams reeled in the lens flairs.
