I like the trailer ... but I think it might be a bit "spoiler-ey" if you haven't seen the movie. Also, I notice there are no scenes of the starships attacking each other, which I felt could have been beneficial as cuts towards the end of the trailer.

A good trailer should set up the characters (Kirk/Spock/Khan), the mcguffin (genesis), the basic premise of the film (Khan hates Kirk and is out to get him) and a general feel of the film's tone an pacing. It may be exaggerating a bit on that last one, but by and large it plays fair.
Really though, there's only one or two plot twists in the whole film and none of them are spoilt here. Most of what you probably think of as spoilers probably wouldn't mean anything out of context to anyone who hasn't already seen it...and let's be honest, this trailer was most assuredly made for those who know the film *very* well. ;-)
It's three minutes with ALL the best parts of the film! I feel it could have been tighter. I feel they should have focuses on one part of the story. I'm not saying they should cut those parts out of the movie, just out of the trailer.
