Sometimes the Super Bowl gives us really cool movie spots, and the new TV spot for STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS is a pretty good one. Lots of what’s here is familiar, but there’s some new shots of the Enterprise looking pretty rough, and a few new shots of ol’ Benedict Cumberbatch looking evil. This is looking to be a pretty good year for geek-flavored films. Take a look at the spot below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.
STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
