Nothing can prepare you for the Darkness. Along with the (rather pointless) MTV Movie Awards this past weekend, Hollywood brought in a few new movie trailers and TV spots for a few of their upcoming summer movies. One of them in the spotlight is Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams' sci-fi sequel reuniting us with the intrepid Enterprise crew, lead by Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock and Zoe Saldana as Uhura (plus Bones, Chekov, Sulu and Scotty - not seen). In addition to a new TV spot for Into Darkness, featuring a few fly-at-you phrases, a set of four character posters showing the aforementioned crew members plus Benedict Cumberbatch have been unveiled. They're definitely selling the gritty side.
Here's the new TV spot for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness, originally debuted by MTV (see here):
Up next, here's the new set of four character posters (two so far from Apple) featuring the Enterprise crew:
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 this summer.
