Presumably the third and final trailer has arrived today for JJ Abrams’ epic and menacing sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. Once again the director is being very clever with what he gives away, and the trailer seems to show an awful lot without actually giving too much away.
We already know that Cumberbatch is the villain known at this time as John Harrison, but after dominating all the previous trailers, here he takes a slightly smaller role, allowing more time to be spent with Kirk (Chris Pine) and his crew, but they appear to be in serious trouble. Judging by the trailer, The Enterprise is lured into a trap against Harrison’s massive ship which is just too much for The Enterprise to handle. Shot down out of the sky, Scotty (Simon Pegg) declares “the ship is dead”, while Kirk says to his crew “I’m sorry”. Serious, devastating stuff indeed!
