A batch of new photos from J.J. Abram's Star Trek: Into Darkness have been released and scanned from Empire Magazine. The photos feature Chris Pine, Alice Eve, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Benedict Cumberbatch as the badass looking villain of insanity. There's also a couple of Star Trek covers as well!
In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.
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 17th, 2013. The movie also stars John Cho, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and Peter Weller. I'm so excited to see the story for this sequel unfold on the big screen!
In addition, here's a little more detailed story description from the magazine...
With Earth under terrorist attack from Benedict Cumberbatch’s ex-Starfleet employee John Harrison, Kirk is this time forced into a rash decision that breaks a critical Starfleet command, puts his crew in danger & costs him his captain’s chair. Now out of uniform and dressed down in space civvies of black leather jackets and boots, our three heroes have separated from the Enterprise and headed off on a mission to try and rectify his mistake.
