New hi-res stills from Star Trek: Into Darkness have been released which emphasize the action packed feel of the trailer. The Into Darkness plot follows Benedict Cumberbatch’s mysterious villain as he wages a one man war against the Federation, and despite everyone claiming “It’s not Khan” and the villain being officially called “John Harrison” (yeah, right – THAT is going to stick…) there are some clear Wrath of Khan references in the trailer. As for the stills, judge for yourself – there are certainly a lot of guns (sorry – phasers) being held so it looks like – as with the first rebooted film – the action side of the franchise is really being emphasized over cerebral ideas. Hopefully there will still be some room for lofty thoughts in the new Trek. Or even some aliens, for that matter.
Die-hard Trekkie and new fans alike – what do you think? Looking forward to Star Trek: Into Darkness? Place your bets on “KHAAAAAAAN” in the comments section below!
