Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pine face off in Star Trek Into Darkness Super Bowl TV spot

Check out a new teaser for the sci-fi sequel which aired during Super Bowl XLVII and sees Captain James T. Kirk and John Harrison go head-to-head

Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pine demonstrated their fizzing on-screen animosity in a new Star Trek Into Darkness TV spot, which aired last night during Super Bowl XLVII.


While we’ve already seen Captain James T Kirk (Pine) and John Harrison (Cumberbatch) trading threats in previous trailers, the Super Bowl TV spot gives us a look at a new scene in which Harrison declares his superiority to Kirk, declaring that he’s “better” than the Enterprise captain at “everything.”

The TV spot also features new footage of a badly damaged Enterprise crashing into a cityscape, continuing the apocalyptic theme of previous Into Darkness teasers:

Directed by J.J. Abrams, and featuring Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Alice Eve among its cast, Star Trek Into Darkness will be released in the UK on Friday 17 May.
