Benedict Cumberbatch messes with Spock’s mind in new Star Trek Into Darkness clip

Cumberbatch's John Harrison threatens to help Zachary Quinto's character decide between his heart and his head...

John Harrison turns the screw on Spock (Zachary Quinto) in the latest clip from Star Trek sequel Into Darkness, aiming to exploit “the constant battle between what he thinks and what he feels”.


“Does he follow his head, embracing logic and the power of reason?” asks Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain, “or does he follow his heart – knowing the emotions he cannot control may destroy him?

“I will help him decide…”

And if you think that sounds ominous, wait until you hear Cumberbatch saying it…


Star Trek Into Darkness is in UK cinemas from 9 May
