The minute-long teaser for Star Trek into Darkness has been released for the first time.
The teaser for JJ Abram’s Star Trek sequel shows fighter jets flying over a futuristic London- gherkin still intact- to Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice over.
“It’s an illusion, a comforting lie to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned. To have my vengeance,” the actor says.
The teaser shows scenes of earth under attack, with Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and his crew watching in horror.
The plot synopsis released by Paramount Pictures says: “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.”
Star Trek into Darkness is released in the UK on 17 May 2013.
