UPDATE: Super Bowl TV spot for Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness Super Bowl TV SPOT (2013) J.J. Abrams Movie

[UPDATE: In addition to getting tix to early screenings of Star Trek Into Darkness, downloading the Star Trek App will also give users an exclusive look at an extended cut of this Super Bowl spot. A little more information about the Star Trek App has been included after the cut.]

One of the interesting meta things about the Super Bowl spot for Star Trek Into Darkness is that it straight-out asks Benedict Cumberbatch who his character is. Cumberbatch provides a suitably cryptic answer to the question. He really should have just covered his mouth with his hand and said, “I’m Gotham’s reckoning!”

Even though Star Trek Into Darkness is slated to come out May 17th, you can actually catch the film two days early. A Star Trek App has been released and is available here or by visiting StarTrekMovie.com/StarTrekApp. Using the app, you will be able to purchase tickets in select cities to a special screening of Star Trek Into Darkness at 8:00pm on May 15th. Tickets are now on sale, so quit slacking.
