Paramount is counting down to the final Star Trek Into Darkness trailer by releasing character posters from the movie. We’ve already had the likes of Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto and the Enterprise crashing, and now it’s the turn of Benedict Cumberbatch’s evil John Harrison.
Here’s the film’s synopsis: ‘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.’
As the trailers have shown, Harrison is adept at causing devastation, although there are still questions over his true identity, with some still suspecting he may be a new version of a classic Trek character. We’ll have to wait and see though. The film is out May 9th in the UK and May 17th in the US.
