Since the film is only a month away, Paramount has released what will presumably be the final major trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness. If you want your Trek movie epic and deadly serious, then it looks like J.J. Abrams has you covered. I’m glad this new trailer finally turns the attention to Kirk (Chris Pine) rather than Cumberbatch’s villain. The trailer also hits home that the Enterprise is going to get destroyed, and when you factor in the destruction it already suffered in Search for Spock and again in Generations, the impact for Into Darkness feels somewhat diminished.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with the character poster for Kirk, and click on the respective links for the posters for Spock, Uhura, and “John Harrison”. The film also stars Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Alice Eve, and Peter Weller. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D on May 15th, and in 2D and 3D on May 17th.
Here’s the new poster [also via Apple]:
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.
