First Showing reports that the first theatrical trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness is attached to non-IMAX screenings of The Hobbit. This won't just be a condensed version of the prologue or a brief teaser but a full trailer. My prediction: since Benedict Cumberbatch is in both Star Trek and the Hobbit movies, the trailer will reveal that the two film franchises are connected. In other words, USS Enterprise vs. Necromancer Sauron riding Smaug.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Into Star Trek) comes out December 14th. Star Trek Into Darkness (and The Hobbit) will be out in theaters on May 17th.
