J.J. Abrams only lets you see what you he wants you to see, and when it comes to his films before release, it isn't much. And so it's not surprising that these two latest photos for "Star Trek Into Darkness," coming in via some kind of app for the movie, aren't exactly Earth-shattering revelations.

As you might know from some various burbling around the interwebs, select groups of journalists were invited to see 30 minutes of footage from "Star Trek Into Darkness" this week. While we weren't one of them (ring us up J.J.!), the big reveal out of the presentation seemed to be Peter Weller's role in the movies as....the father of Carol Marcus played by Alice Eve. Spoiler? Hardly. J.J. Abrams knows exactly what he's showing to press and when so...yeah, yawn. But now the weekend has arrived with a brand new teaser trailer for the movie and it certainly seems like Abrams is wearing his sci-fi influences right on his sleeve.

Walt Disney's decision to hire J.J. Abrams to direct "Star Wars: Episode 7" still has people talking, and rightly so. With one foot already in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise, many wonder if he can make a distinctive enough "Star Wars" movie so that it isn't one mass Abrams-y sci-fi blob. Still others wish Disney would've selected any number of other talented people to kick off the next three sequels. And then there's William Shatner, whose feelings on the matter are made plain and clear.

Ever since the surprise announcement that J.J. Abrams would direct "Stars Wars: Episode VII," the internet has churned in rampant speculation mode. What will these films entail? Who will star? What characters would return? But in another corner of the galaxy, many were asking what would happen to Abrams' "Star Trek" franchise. The sequel, "Star Trek Into Darkness," hits theaters in May at the beginning of blockbuster season, but what of future installments? Won't Abrams be too busy with "Star Wars," particularly if that 2015 release date gets locked down?

Fanboy curiosity has always been manic, but it's curdled into desperation of late. Adult geeks have looked at "Iron Man 3" children's toys to assay spoiler characteristics in upcoming Marvel films, but the intense inquisitive desire surrounding "Star Trek Into Darkness" and its main villain is true child's play in comparison. Perhaps it's because director J.J. Abrams is so secretive that it has become a challenge to nerds to figure everything out in advance, and so no one is buying that Benedict Cumberbatch's antagonist character (named John Harrison) is who the film says he is and assume he's Khan, as played by Ricardo Montalban in "Star Trek 2".

With all the buzz around "Star Wars: Episode 7" it kinda just seems like "Star Trek Into Darkness" is sort of this thing in the way that both J.J. Abrams and audiences just have to get over before we return to a galaxy far, fary away. But that said, "Star Trek" was a blast, and we're hoping that same popcorn fun will be found in the sequel, though in this batch of new photos, everyone is pretty damn serious.
