Star Trek Into Darkness Synopsis

Set for release in summer of 2013, Star Trek Into Darkness is self-described as an explosive action thriller.

Directed by J.J. Abrams, the sequel to his 2009 movie Star Trek begins with a shocking act of terrorism, committed by someone from within Starfleet. In the wake of this act, the Enterprise is called back to Earth where Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) will defy regulations to lead his crew on a manhunt to capture those responsible.

That man may be John Harrison, played by Benedict Cumberbatch and described as “an unstoppable force of destruction”.

As the Enterprise crew warps into the middle of a life or death chess game, their friendships will be sundered, love will be tested, and sacrifices may have to be made in order for James T. Kirk to protect the only family he has left: the members of his crew.

I love how they break down the many ways in which Captain Kirk is a horrible leader, from really failing to protect anything in the universe to replacing Simon Pegg with Anton Yelchin as chief engineer. Fictional characters or no, you always want to keep Pegg by your side. Or at least I do. Platonically.

Roberto Orci And Alex Kurtzman To Write Star Trek 3 Roberto Orci And Alex Kurtzman To Write Star Trek 3
The trade says that Paramount started looking beyond the Bad Robot regulars after the release of Star Trek Into Darkness and contemplated getting X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz or a younger pair of writers to pen the movie. Ultimately, they returned back to Kurtzman and Orci, who also worked Paramount on the first two films in the Transformers franchise as well as Mission: Impossible III.

Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz are being eyed to pen the third installment of this rebooted sci-fi franchise. Together the pair might be best known for contributing to superhero scripts like Thor and X-Men: First Class.

Star Trek Into Darkness is a hit. Not a giant hit, and not the kind of thing that has studios calling all of their rivals and screaming "Suck it!" while guzzling champagne at 8 a.m. (at least , that's how we picture it), but a big enough hit all the same. Especially when you account for its huge improvement with global audiences, Star Trek Into Darkness has done well enough to keep the franchise alive… which means, inevitably, it's time to start talking about sequels

ABC's affiliation with Disney seems to be paying off a bit more for Jimmy Kimmel Live since Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise. Last month, Kimmel staged a pretty heated (and amusing) confrontation between Harrison Ford and his old pal Chewbacca. Apparently the two had a falling out over an indiscretion between Chewy and Leia. The topic of the wookiee came up again this week when Star Wars and Star Trek director J.J. Abrams visited Kimmel's show.

A lot of people were expecting Star Trek Into Darkness, with the added benefit of 3D and a big-time villain its center, to open a whole lot bigger than the first Star Trek film that J.J. Abrams directed in 2009. And while the movie is much bigger than the first one overseas-- which is what really counts these days-- it's not any bigger here at home, and that's even with the 3D bump.
