Star-Trek-Into-Darkness-Character-Poster-SpockJ.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness is less than a month from hitting the big screen on our shores, and the excitement continues to grow as we get closer and closer to its release date.

The highly anticipated sequel is naturally one of the must-see movies of the year, and Paramount and Abrams have launched a brilliant campaign for the film in recent months, teasing things out bit-by-bit, without giving much away at all.

We’re expecting the latest trailer to hit this week. And ahead of that, we’ve got two new character posters to share, following the awesome new ‘cinemosaic’ poster we saw last week, giving us a look at Spock and Uhura.

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.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Alice Eve, Bruce Greenwood, and Noel Clarke make up a very promising leading cast.

Abrams is directing from a script penned by co-writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Transformers) and Damon Lindelof (Prometheus).

Star Trek Into Darkness will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on 9th May here in the UK, with its US release date set for the following week on May 17th. Tickets are already on sale here in the UK, with the advanced box office crashing the BFI IMAX booking system when they went on sale last week. So you can be sure you’ll want to get your tickets early, because everyone is going to be seeing (and talking about) this movie. Be sure to come back later this week for when the new trailer hits.

Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
