‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Lego Trailer: Blockheads are Nailing It — VIDEO

Lego Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) from 'Star Trek Into Darkness' parody trailer

Some would say that being square is anything but a compliment. When it means you’ve been transformed into Legos, however — the positive and just downright creative aspect becomes far more apparent. When a parody trailer is done right, it sends the Internet into a tizzy, and the newest subject of childhood toy adoration is J.J. AbramsStar Trek Into Darkness: a mash-up of genres (toys and obsessive nerd culture) that feels especially apt.

Creators Antonio and Andrea Toscano have done the much-hyped sequel’s trailer some serious justice — hilariously (and awesomely) rendering Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and Benedict Cumberbatch into total blockheads. And the resulting 1:54 is surprisingly detailed and accurate — worth a peek at on a lazy Sunday evening if nothing else.
