‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ gets an official synopsis, trailer announcement

One of 2009’s pleasant surprises was J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot, a film that succeeded in being both a great crowd-pleaser and critical success. With a trailer for the sequel set to premiere in front of The Hobbit, Paramount has released an official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness, available after the jump!

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 (Chris Pine) leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man (Benedict Cumberbatch) 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.

Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters on May 17, 2013 and stars Pine, Cumberbatch, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Alice Eve, Peter Weller and Noel Clarke.
