Paramount Pictures has released the official synopsis for J.J. Abrams‘ highly anticipated film Star Trek Into Darkness.
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.
Sounds like it will be yet an awesome Star Trek film! It also in a way hints that the villain in the sequel is Gary Mitchell, as previously revealed by Karl Urban. The phrase, “A personal score to settle” and an “a one-man weapon of mass destruction” are a couple of little tip-offs. In the original series, Mitchell is a friend of Captain Kirk and a Starfleet officer on the U.S.S. Enterprise. He ends up with powerful telekinetic powers and turns against Kirk and his crew.
The crew of the enterprise will once again embark on an adventure into the unknown on May 17th, 2013. The movie stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Weller, and Alice Eve.
