Star Trek Into Darkness
Star Trek 2
, as you’ll probably end up calling it), has released a teaser trailer online, ahead of a longer trailer due on 17 December.
The focus is largely on Benedict Cumberbatch’s black-clad baddie, who can clearly give a menacing monologue with the best of them.
That’s not to say he’s not a physical villain, as he’s seen getting involved in tough fist-fights and orchestrating destruction on a larger scale.
We still don’t have a definite answer as to the character Cumberbatch is playing, although he can be spotted wearing a black Starfleet jersey, and he speaks of his “return”, so he clearly has history with the crew.
There's also a couple of glimpses of newcomer Alice Eve in there, and she looks to be sparking with Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk.
Star Trek Into Darkness opens 17 May 2013.
