Paramount Pictures has released a new featurette for the upcoming sequel Star Trek Into Darkness.  The clip reveals a few bits of new footage (I think?), interspersed with J.J. Abrams, Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, and Zoe Saldana talking about the scale of the film.  Abrams himself describes Into Darkness as the most fun and challenging experience he’s had, calling the action “light-years beyond” what they did in the first movie (I see what you did there).  Into Darkness does indeed look to be one massive film, but Star Wars: Episode VII has to be bigger, right?

Hit the jump to watch the featurette.  The film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Alice Eve, and Bruce GreenwoodStar Trek Into Darkness opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 17th.

Here’s the official synopsis for 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.
