I know I am technically a little late when it comes to posting about this, but the last two days have been very hectic in my world. I’ve only got a recent moment in time to stop and breathe, but this Star Trek news is some big stuff, and I have to blog about it! So as per usual here’s the information via superherohype:
“Paramount Pictures has just released the first teaser poster for J.J. Abrams’ highly-anticipated sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. Check it out below!
The film, which stars Chris Pine, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller, is described as follows:
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 hits theaters on May 17, 2013.”
Man when I saw this poster yesterday morning I blew up. As IGN put it, there is a very Dark Knight style to the poster in terms of the broken and smashed debris and little flames around too. And as many have speculated and are probably right, the man in the poster is most likely Benedict Cumberbatch as the new villain. Either way this does look pretty badass and it does paint a pretty picture of destruction and really relates well to the official plot synopsis released recently. I Can’t wait for more info and media to be released on Star Trek Into Darkness! Bring it on!
