Star Trek Into Darkness: Benedict Cumberbatch has a bad hair day in new character poster

New artwork features a windswept John Harrison, as well as Kirk, Uhura and Spock, along with the latest teaser trailer for the sci-fi sequel


From what we’ve seen so far of Star Trek Into Darkness villain John Harrison, he’s one of your more stylish global terrorists, dressed head to toe in flattering black and with that long flowing coat. But here to prove that destroying the world can play havoc with your ‘do – and that even Benedict Cumberbatch can have a bad hair day – is a new character poster showing a windswept Harrison with a coiffure perhaps reminscent of Kramer from Seinfeld.


Three more dramatic posters feature Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zoe Saldana as Uhura and Zachary Quinto as Spock, and there’s also a new US TV spot, debuted during last night’s MTV Movie Awards, to whet your appetite ahead of the release of the sci-fi sequel next month.


Star Trek Into Darkness is released in the UK on Thursday 9 May.
