Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Trek Into Darkness – new pictures

See 11 new images from the hotly anticipated sci-fi sequel starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg and Alice Eve


Star Trek Into Darkness is one of 2013’s most hotly-anticipated movies, and fans have been clamouring for information about the project ever since it was announced.


And while director J.J. Abrams, who rebooted the Trek franchise in 2009, has managed to keep things pretty well under wraps so far, you can get a taster of the upcoming sci-fi sequel with these 11 newly-released images from the film.

The shots are particularly beguiling as they give us our best look yet at Benedict Cumberbatch in his Enterprise uniform. 

Cumberbatch plays a villain in the new movie called John Harrison – a name which many commentators are already calling a red herring, especially considering Cumberbatch was strongly rumoured to be playing iconic Trek villain Khan in Into Darkness.

Featuring the likes of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Alice Eve the new pics suggest that Star Trek Into Darkness is going to be a slick, atmospheric and action-packed addition to the Trek canon.
