Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer released

First footage from the sci-fi sequel shows Benedict Cumberbatch’s character out for vengeance

“You think your world is safe,” narrates Benedict Cumberbatch. “It’s an illusion, a comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned. To have my vengeance.” 


And so begins this first-look trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, the sci-fi sequel directed by JJ Abrams that’s set for release on 17 May 2013. 

From the looks of things, San Francisco (the base of Starfleet) is coming in for a pounding. British actress Alice Eve can also be seen yelling in a Starfleet uniform, while Zoe Saldana’s Uhura can be glimpsed being comforted by Simon Pegg’s Scotty. For all the action, watch the clip below:
