J.J. Abrams Shows Conan O’Brien The First Super-Exciting Clip From ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’

J.J. Abrams visited Conan O’Brien last night on TBS’s Conan to talk about the upcoming Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. He brought with him three frames — yes, just three — of the film to whet our appetites. Here’s one-third of the entirety of footage:

Yeah, knowing what the suit looks like still doesn’t make the three frames of footage any more exciting, but the long build up to it in the video, and Andy Richter’s reaction, did make me laugh.
