We’re finally getting our first look at the new ‘Star Trek’ movie — and it’s fantastic!
Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot released an announcement video/teaser trailer for JJ Abrams‘ Star Trek sequel Star Trek Into Darkness on Dec. 6! It’s a 1-minute tease for the 2-minute trailer that will be released next week!
The trailer showcases a much darker, grittier Trek film than its predecessor. According to Slash Film, JJ is certainly going all Empire Strikes Back with this sequel!
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes 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.
Star Trek Into Darkness will be released on May 17, 2013.
