After giving us our first look at J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness a couple of weeks ago with the release of an online exclusive announcement trailer, Paramount Pictures has now debuted the full-length theatrical trailer for the hotly-anticipated sci-fi sequel, which has been screening in select cinemas this past weekend with Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Running at just under two minutes in length, the new trailer doesn’t really give too much away, but it is packed with plenty of exciting footage, including a few more shots of Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain ‘John Harrison’, along with some tantalising glimpses at the film’s large-scale action sequences and the devastation that’s set to be unleashed by Cumberbatch’s ‘one man weapon of mass-destruction’…
Star Trek Into Darkness sees Chris Pine (Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Simon Pegg (Scotty), John Cho (Sulu), Anton Yelchin (Chekov), Karl Urban (Bones) and Bruce Greenwood (Pike) all reprising their roles from 2009’s Star Trek. Newcomers to the cast include Peter Weller (RoboCop), Nazneen Contractor (24), Noel Clarke (Doctor Who), Nolan North (Young Justice) and Alice Eve (Men in Black 3), with the latter confirmed as portraying Dr. Carol Marcus of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan fame.
Star Trek Into Darkness is set for release on May 17th, 2013.
