Trekkies can rejoice today as they finally got a glimpse of the long-awaited movie Star Trek Into Darkness, the sequel to JJ Abram’s 2009 film. Just like The Dark Knight Rises and Iron Man 3, the film seems to focus on terrorism, specifically the so-called “one-man weapon of mass destruction.”
The villain is played by Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch. “You think your world is safe,” he says in the teaser. “It is an illusion . . . A comforting lie, told to protect you . . . Enjoy these final moments of peace . . . For I have returned . . .to have – MY VENGEANCE!”
The trailer is full of epic explosions and fighting, as Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to capture the ruthless but complicated villain. The film comes out on May 17. Will you see it?
