The new international trailer for the highly anticipated sequel Star Trek Into Darkness offers an even closer look into Benedict Cumberbatch's villainous role.
"Your commanders have committed a crime I cannot forgive," Cumberbatch, as John Harrison, says as apocalyptic scenes flash across the screen. "Do I have your attention? ...You have no idea what you've done. I will walk over your cold corpses."
Though some suspect the actor is playing Star Trek villain Khan, it is revealed, in the least, that he is one of the Enterprise's "top agents" who has gone to the dark side. "I have no idea what I'm supposed to do," Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) tells Spock (Zachary Quinto). "I only know what I can do."
This trailer also offers up a first look at Peter Weller (a.k.a. Robocop) in character. Weller is rumored to be playing Admiral Marcus, the father of Alice Eve's Carol Marcus.
This wasn't the only Star Trek trailer released this week. Trekkies will love this stop-motion LEGO trailer for the film:
