Beyond the menacing figure of Benedict Cumberbatch in the first Star Trek Into Darkness poster lies presumably San Francisco, home of Starfleet in the future where a terrorist attack will target the city and specifically Starfleet headquarters.
The poster was old news this morning, that is until a new version of it came online that added motion and Cumberbatch’s deep evil message of doom and gloom on top like a cherry on a banana split. This guy could be the Khan to the Abrams’ Star Trek films. Or, he could be Khan. Or John Harrison. Or who the hell really knows outside the Abrams inner circle of closely guarded secrets.
Star Trek Into Darkness brings back the first film’s crew including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood and Anton Yelchin, and adds in newcomers Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller. The sequel warps into theaters in a special limited engagement on May 15, then opens wide on May 17.
