‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Teaser Trailer Unveiled: Benedict Cumberbatch is So Evil (VIDEO)
J.J. Abrams and Paramount Pictures have just unleashed the new teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, the much-anticipated sequel to the 2009 mega hit, Star Trek.
British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, perhaps best known for his award winning role as Sherlock Holmes across the Atlantic Ocean, possesses all sorts of evil in the new Star Trek film — at least, that’s what the trailer wants viewers to think.
“You think your world is safe,” Cumberbatch’s character says in a voiceover, “It is an illusion, a comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned . . . to have . . . my vengeance.”
While the evil level in Cumberbatch’s character is up for debate — rumor also has it that he is the legendary villain Khan — the film does see the return of many of its stars from three years ago.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban and Zoe Saldanaall reprise their roles as Captain Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Uhura, respectively.
Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Simon Pegg also make a return as their Star Trek characters, as the franchise welcomes newcomers Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
Star Trek Into Darkness opens in theaters May 17, 2013.
