Star Trek Into Darkness

Getting anxious to return to the USS Enterprise? Paramount has unveiled the first official teaser poster for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness sequel, which we've all been patiently waiting to see any footage or photos from. Don't go too crazy over this poster though, while it is a dark, gritty design, something about it may look a little familiar. Our friends at SlashFilm point out how similar it is to the silhouette designs for Battleship, The Raid and Battle: LA. Plus, who exactly is that in the futuristic trenchcoat? The Playlist says it's "Benedict Cumberbatch" as the villain overlooking a ruined London, but are we sure it's not Captain Kirk? Interesting, but nonetheless exciting, at least they're starting up real marketing for this sci-fi sequel.

Star Trek Into Darkness

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated everything the fleet stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a "one man weapon of mass destruction."

Star Trek Into Darkness is the sequel to the J.J. Abrams-directed reboot of Gene Roddenberry's original science fiction series. The screenplay this time was co-written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof. Most of the crew is back, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin & John Cho. Paramount is bringing Into Darkness to theaters May 17th next summer.

As much as I have tired of people trying to compate everything to Nolan's Batman trilogy, as if it was the first series of movies to do pretty much anything, I can't deny this one. That poster is TDKR all the way...

I love the symbolic Star Trek symbol within the ruins. Captivating.

I agree, but I doubt they'd put a supporting character on their first teaser poster.

You're all wrong. It's Adam Lambert.

For my money it's Kirk. Feels more like a heroic/despairing look than victorious. Plus Cumberbatch has longer hair than that surely?

Okay guys pretend for a second that this isn't dark knight-esque. This might be one of the coolest posters ever.

I'm not much of a Star Trek fan (my knowledge is limited), but this looks badass. Definitely gonna see it

It is Benedict, same jacket from the scenes.

If it weren't for the title, I would think that it is a remake of Darkman or a New Gritty Dick Tracy re-imagining by Christopher Nolan.

Is it strange to anyone else that all the letters in the title are capital letters except for the n? Otherwise I like it a lot. Can't wait to see the movie in IMAX 3D

Star Trek Into Darkness a.k.a. The Dark Star Trek Rises

Cross between a Nolan-Batman poster, a Bayformers poster, and a JJTrek poster.

The title's kinda weird to me. Not a Star Trek fan though, so maybe it makes sense.

skyscrapers from cities around the world thrown into one setting for a bg looks weird. London, Shanghai, NYC, Jakarta...

Hope it's JJ as the pile of rubble underneath the figure gazing upon the destruction....not much originality to this poster...
