Star Trek: Into Darkness Header Image

Paramount Pictures has used this year’s Super Bowl as the perfect opportunity to kick off – pun very much intended – the television arm of the marketing campaign for Star Trek Into Darkness with a snazzy and explosive new TV spot.

You can watch it here below.

There’s a lot of mighty purty imagery packed into those thirty painfully brief seconds, a few swatches of which have not been released before. In particular we get to see Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and the movie’s villain John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) have a tense exchange, which is then followed by lots of explosions and people looking quite unhappy.

Vulcan welcomes home Leonard NimoyStar Trek fans know that the planet Vulcan is the home world of Spock, the half-Vulcan half-human science officer on the U.S.S. Enterprise. For years, the city of Vulcan in Alberta, Canada, has enjoyed heightened popularity because of their name, and has embraced Star Trek fans with events and themed memorabilia throughout the city, including a Trek-themed tourist station. Vulcan even put in a bid to host the premiere of the J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek prequel.

This year, CBS (which owns the Star Trek franchise) approved the city’s status change to Vulcan: The Official Star Trek Capital of Canada, and on April 23, 2010, the city had a ceremony with honored guest Leonard Nimoy, the actor who played Spock in the original 1960s television series, as well as in seven feature films, including 2009’s Star Trek. The city presented a bronze bust of Nimoy and Nimoy gave Spock’s iconic “live long and prosper” handprint.

Today, Nimoy posted an image through this Twitter account of the poster that the city of Vulcan created in honor of his visit. The poster is based on the viral ‘Obama Hope’ poster, welcoming home Spock to Vulcan.

Check out here below the official images from the event here, courtesy of CBS, as well as the aforementioned poster and also video that was taken of the event.
