Paramount Pictures has finally released the synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness.
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness.
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.
I wonder if the “one man weapon of mass destruction” is Benedict Cumberbatch. No official word on who the villain is as well. So many questions! J.J. Abrams is doing a great job keeping this a secret.
This is pretty exciting – especially since the first nine minutes will be showing at the IMAX screening of The Hobbit.
Star Trek Into Darkness, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller, will be in theaters on May 17th, 2013.
