Paramount Pictures has released the first clip from director J.J. Abrams’ sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. This clip, I believe, comes from a scene towards the very beginning of the movie, so fans needn’t worry about any major spoilers. We see Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk and the Enterprise crew (in some fairly skin-tight outfits, natch) discussing how to proceed when faced with a rather precarious situation that involves Zachary Quinto’s Spock. It’s an interesting choice for a premiere clip, as it’s not an action-heavy scene and doesn’t feature much humor (save for a great reaction from Simon Pegg’s Scotty). Instead, the clip focuses on the heart of Star Trek, which is its characters.
Hit the jump to watch the clip. The film also stars Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, and Peter Weller. Star Trek Into Darkness opens on in IMAX 3D on May 15th and in 2D and 3D on May 17th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness:
In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.
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.
