Following the rather epic teaser trailer that debuted last year, the latest teaser trailer surfaced earlier in the month attached to screenings of Oz the Great and Powerful. And when it came, it did so with a promise that a new, longer trailer would be coming at the end of the month. That new trailer has now debuted, giving us another awesome look at Abrams’ upcoming sci-fi blockbuster sequel.
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 take the lead, making up a very awesome ensemble.
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 a week later on May 17th. For now, here’s the new trailer to keep your anticipation running on high.
