While the previous Star Trek Into Darkness trailer was fairly somber, today’s 30-second Super Bowl spot that Paramount Pictures debuted cranks up the destruction, mayhem and drama, proclaiming “Our World Will Fall.” We witness some brief verbal jousting between Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), interspersed with an Enterprise crashing into (I believe) London. Meanwhile, Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Uhura (Zoe Saldana) share a tender moment, lava explodes and Harrison asks, “Shall we begin?”
Star Trek Into Darkness also stars Simon Pegg, Alice Eve, Bruce Greenwood, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Peter Weller. It opens in theaters May 17 — watch the trailer below.
In summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes 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 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.
