Beneditch Cumberbatch poster for JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness

Paramount has released another great new poster for JJ Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness. This one gets up close and personal with the villain of the piece Benedict Cumberbatch.

Chris Pine returns as Kirk, with Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Zoe Saldana all returning and rounding out the Enterprise crew. The big bad this time round is British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, christened John Harrison, but that’s likely an alias…

Star Trek Into Darkness beams into Irish cinemas on May 17th, 2013.

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.
