The new teaser trailer for Star Trek Into The Darkness does exactly what it should do: it teases. The film isn't out until the summer of 2013, but these trailers have got sci-fi fans licking their lips at the next instalment of the Star Trek saga.
In a trailer full of action, which we've come to expect from director Jj Abrams, Pike tell Kirk, "There's greatness in you, but not an ounce of humility. But there's going to come a moment when you're wrong about that. And you're going to get yourself, and everyone under your command, killed." The film's synopsis give us our only clues to the plot line, while everything else is garnered from scrutinizing trailers. It reads, "When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
"With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
"As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew."
