You could always use some more Star Trek Into Darkness marketing in your life, so Paramount has released a new sneak peek as well as a character poster for Spock (Zachary Quinto). Yesterday, we got a poster for Uhura (Zoe Saldana), and I’m curious to see if the upcoming character posters will be for anyone other than Kirk (Chris Pine) and “John Harrison” (Benedict Cumberbatch). In the meantime, we can watch Spock bathe in sweet, hot lava. As for the sneak peek, it’s basically a TV spot, although I don’t know if it will play like any other commercial. It’s debuted on MTV’s website, so perhaps there might be something longer on the MTV Movie Awards later tonight.
Hit the jump to check out the sneak peek and poster. The film also stars Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, and Peter Weller. Star Trek Into Darkness opens 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.
