With all the hoopla surrounding J.J. Abrams and Star Wars, it’s easy to forget the director has another space-themed sequel in the works: “Star Trek Into Darkness.” However, the film’s latest trailer, which premiered before screenings of “Oz the Great and Powerful” this past weekend, will have you remembering real fast.
While not a whole lot of plot is revealed in this just-over-a-minute clip, we do get a couple of quick glimpses of Benedict Cumberbatch as the film’s mysterious villain (Khan?) and plenty of action-packed scenes featuring Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto). Those scenes, combined with the stunning special effects and the glorious mugging of Simon Pegg, are enough to make you say “Han who?”
“Star Trek Into Darkness” is slated to hit theaters in IMAX on May 15 and in regular cinemas on May 17.
