With just a month to go until the highly anticipated premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness, Paramount Pictures has released a final full-length trailer for director J.J. Abrams’ sequel that’s just … well, epic. If you weren’t excited for this film before, this just may change your mind.
While the other trailers (and posters, and TV spots) have focused primarily on Benedict Cumberbatch’s villainous John Harrison, this one turns the spotlight back on our primary protagonists Kirk (Christopher Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinton), and also shows more of the apparent destruction of the Enterprise. It’s well worth a watch.
You can watch the trailer below or in HD at Apple.com. Opening May 17, Star Trek Into Darkness also stars Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
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. © 2012 PARAMOUNT PICTURES.
