New Star Trek Into Darkness Images Crash Through Glass And Fire
The time for coy teasing is over. Star Trek Into Darkness now comes out this calendar year, on May 27, and director J.J. Abrams will no longer be able to play coy about what his hugely anticipated sequel entails. We've recently gotten a look at a new trailer and even a nine-minute prologue from the film, and now a huge batch of new images has been released to give you an even closer look at the new film. Click on the handful below to see the full collection in our Blend Film Database.
So, what can we learn from these? Well, probably not a whole lot. Abrams's much-publicized love of secrecy has kept all but the vaguest plot details from us, so that even though we know Benedict Cumberbatch is playing the villain, we have no idea where he comes from or why he's after Kirk. Same with the shots of Zachary Quinto's Spock in some kind of fiery pit-- that was actually the first bit of the film that Abrams teased when he appeared on Conan last year, and yet we still have no idea what brings Spock into what looks like an outer-space volcano. The image of what looks like Cumberbatch's villain crashing through a pane of glass is intriguing, but what the hell is actually going on there? No idea.
But what's wonderful about all these images, simply, is that they look like Star Trek, and promise the return to this world that so many of us have been feverishly anticipating for years. Star Trek Into Darkness probably won't reveal too many more story secrets between now and its summer release, but after years of dealing with Abrams and his secrets, that's kind of exactly the way we want it.
