I think all Star Trek Into Darkness marketing should continue to revolve around “Benedict Cumberbatch is a badass, and you should fear him in all your waking hours and even some of your sleeping hours.” Paramount has now released a new motion poster that blends the narration from the teaser trailer with the teaser poster. It’s surprisingly effective considering that we’ve seen both parts of this motion poster before.
Hit the jump to check out the motion poster. The film also stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Alice Eve, and Bruce Greenwood. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in 3D on May 15th. [WARNING: The motion poster auto-plays, so prepare your speakers accordingly lest you and your co-workers loudly hear Cumberbatch’s threat.]
Here’s the official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness:
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.
