A second teaser trailer has been released for Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams‘ follow-up to his 2009 reboot Star Trek.
You can watch the new teaser trailer here below.
The basic premise is that Kirk and his crew of the Enterprise are on a mission to stop Benedict Cumberbatch’s mysterious Khan-like character, and to do so, they apparently need to maneuver a Millennium Falcon-like ship through an astroid field and then fly it into a tight trench to blow up the Death Star. From what I understand, this is the footage Abrams showed that landed him the Star Wars: Episode VII directing gig.
But seriously, I actually love what I see here in Star Trek Into Darkness, I guess I’m just tired of being “teased” with footage – I want to see the sequel already! The film, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Simon Pegg, opens in theaters everywhere on May 17, 2013.
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
