Before he turns his attention to a galaxy far, far away for Disney’s Star Wars: Episode VII, director J.J. Abrams reunites the crew of the USS Enterprise for the hotly-anticipated sequel to his 2009 Star Trek reboot, Star Trek Into Darkness. A new 30-second preview will air tonight in the States during the Super Bowl, but you can check it out right here now…
“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.“
Star Trek’s Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Bruce Greenwood all return to their roles for Star Trek Into Darkness, while Trek newcomers include Alice Eve, Peter Weller, Nazneen Contractor, Noel Clarke and Benedict Cumberbatch, who potrays the film’s mysterious villain ‘John Harrison’.
