The first teaser trailer for upcoming movie “Star Trek: Into Darkness” was released for public view.
Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain has been unveiled for all to see, but his true identity is still unknown. There are rumors that a member of the Starship Enterprise may die, and Spock continues to hang out in a volcano, reports MTV.
The picture, which is scheduled on May, is directed by J.J. Abrams and written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci.Â For those who canâ€™t wait late spring, Paramount Pictures plans to release the first 9 minutes of the movie in 3D IMAX theaters on December 14.
In the expected movie Chris Pine is back as James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Bones, Simon Pegg as Scotty and John Cho as Hikaru Sulu, among others.
The first look at what’s next for the space crew is an explosion-rich one. However, one of the most breathtaking effect on display is Cumberbatch’s Shakespearean-infused threats of global devastation.
“You think your world is safe,” he says in a voice dripping with Coriolanus-like fury.Â “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.”
After Kirk running through a field of red plants, viewers are introduced to the Enterprise’s new foe, who appears on the stage carrying a pretty big gun.
Earlier reports claimed that Cumberbatch woud play a new take on Khan Noonien Singh, the superhuman tyrant from the original TV series that attacked Kirk and crew in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
However, the actor is now rumored to perform Lt. Cmdr. Gary Mitchell, a former friend of Kirk’s dating who also made her appearance on the original Star Trek TV series, acquiring telekinetic powers after crossing a galactic barrier.
â€śWhat was really kind of fun for all of us on the first movie is that we basically got to show the bridge crew coming together,â€ť said Star Trek co-writer Alex Kurtzman.
He continued: â€śAnd I think that the mistake that we didnâ€™t want to make in the sequel was assuming that just because theyâ€™re together theyâ€™re the finely tuned machine that you fell in love (with) from the original series. They still have a lot of work and a lot of growing to get to that place.â€ť
â€śStar Trekâ€ť star Chris Pine gave a hint of what to expect in the sequel: â€śI think the film takes people on a journey from Point A to Point B, and Kirk is still on his way to Z, letâ€™s say. Heâ€™s still on his way to becoming the captain that we all know him to be.â€ť
â€śSo youâ€™ll probably find pieces of that rebellious Kirk in the new installment, but I think really what Kirkâ€™s personal adventure is about is learning how to be a captain, learning what it means to be a leader of men and women, learning what it means to be a true, responsible kind of fully realized man in a position of incredible responsibility.â€ť
The actor continued, adding: â€śI think the (special) effects and explosions are just as great if not greater in this new installment, but I think itâ€™s matched by really strong and really interesting character development.â€ť
