Yes, this is the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer that we saw in the theaters before the non-IMAX version of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The first voice you’ll hear is believed to be Capt. Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood); the second is John Harrison, Our Villain (Benedict Cumberbatch). Watch, squee, and analyze:

By the way, the first nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness that is shown before the IMAX version of The Hobbit? So. Very. Cool. Not unlike the cold open of a TV show (the part of the show that sometimes airs before the opening credits) but on a giant scale. It doesn’t actually feel very spoilery, but there is one excellent reveal – that we will not reveal here, sorry. Not yet, anyway…

Star Trek Into Darkness, starring Chris PineZachary QuintoBenedict CumberbatchKarl UrbanZoe SaldanaJohn ChoSimon Pegg, and Anton Yelchin, is slated to hit theaters on May 17, 2013.
