Paramount has released a new international trailer for J.J. Abrams’ sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. It’s got everything we’ve seen in earlier trailers and a lot more. This time around, we get the action sequences in the presumed order they’ll appear in the full feature which gives us a much better sense of story. The trailer also shows that Kirk (Chris Pine) is taking things much more seriously than he did in the first film. There are also plenty of quips from the fantastic supporting cast (and a hot shot of a barely-dressed Alice Eve as a bonus) that show the crew can still keep some levity amidst all the doom and gloom. Oh, and Benedict Cumberbatch is positively venomous. This is how you release a new trailer!
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Bruce Greenwood. Star Trek Into Darkness opens 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.
