The full-length theatrical trailer for “Star Trek Into Darkness” is still about a week away, but Paramount Pictures has released a teaser for that trailer that should definitely whet fans’ appetites for more. The video puts Benedict Cumberbatch‘s villain character front and center, and teases that he’s a threat like none the Enterprise crew has seen before.
“You think your world is safe. It is an illusion,” he says in the trailer. “A comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance.”
If that’s not enough “Star Trek Into Darkness” deliciousness for you today, a Japanese version of the trailer has been released that has an extra scene included at the end. Be warned: That scene could be considered a spoiler for some.
“Star Trek Into Darkness” stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve and Cumberbatch. Directed by J.J. Abrams, it’s due in theaters on May 17.
