Today we have a commercial for the upcoming "Star Trek Into Darkness" tie-in video game, called "Star Trek: The Video Game." It features William Shatner and his foe, the lizard alien Gorn, playing the game. Things become less than friendly, and the two get into a fight, recreating the classic Kirk vs Gorn battle from the original TV series.
"It never ceases to amaze me how many people still ask me about that scene. It's 46 years later, and he hasn't aged as well as I have," said Shatner. Check out the commercial and the classic battle scene below.
Game synopsis: The highly anticipated "Star Trek: The Video Game" features a vastly updated version of the Gorn as the key foe to legendary duo Kirk and Spock. Players take on the roles of Kirk and Spock, who work together to get to the heart of a mysterious attack by an enemy with unimaginable strength – a re-imagined version of the Gorn. In an entirely original story, written by BAFTA award winner Marianne Krawczyk, the Gorn is a terrifying threat, with an army that could overwhelm Kirk, Spock and the crew of the Enterprise.
"Star Trek: The Video Game" is set to hit stores on April 23rd. "Star Trek Into Darkness" movie will then be released in theaters on May 17th.

LOL f*cking hilarious!!
Shatner is still the man after all these years. They even have the music and everything.
Game looks awesome, movie looks awesome, looking forward to both of them.
And it is about time the Gorn got back into the mix. They're really underused in the Star Trek universe, but have a lot of potential. Obviously the original costume looks a little silly today, but it was 1967 for God's sake.
