Must Watch: First 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Announcement Teaser!
"I have returned to have my vengeance!" Paramount has unveiled the first announcement teaser for J.J. Abrams' sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. This isn't the full trailer, but just an intro teaser, giving us a taste of some of the sci-fi this time around. Chris Pine returns as Kirk, Zachary Quinto is back as Spock, chasing a villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch. We're still getting an IMAX 3D prologue for Trek 2 in front of The Hobbit (IMAX only) starting next week when it opens, in addition to the full trailer before The Hobbit (now available here to view). This looks awesome so far, one of my most anticipated movies of 2013.

Note: We've discovered that the Japanese trailer (also found on Apple) has 15 seconds of extra footage, including a few shots reminiscent of the Kirk/Spock death scene in Wrath of Khan. This frame. Watch here:
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.
