Brace yourselves boys and girls, this morning (early morning) the latest little bit of marketing for Star Trek Into Darkenss has dropped and is perhaps the most epic looking thing we’ve seen yet. So what’s new? Well, this trailer for the big budget sequel to Abrams’ amazingly well-received Star Trek reboot gives us a glimpse of Peter Weller as a Starfleet Admiral as well as lots more sneering from Benedict Cumberbatch as the villainous… John Harrison. Okay, surely we all know by now that’s not what he’ll end up being called, but JJ, as always, is doing a great job keeping things close to his chest. Enough talk, just watch!!
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
Paramount Pictures has slated Star Trek Into Darkness for wide release this Spring on May 17th, 2013. This year really is the year for great sci-fi and from the looks of it we won’t be disappointed.
