Star Trek Into Darkness

By DAVID WEINER

March 31, 2013

Release Date: May 17

The Plot: Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the Enterprise crew are called back to Earth to battle an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization. Embarking on a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction, our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death.

Why It's a Must-See: Benedict Cumberbatch is looking like a formidable villain in this high-stakes sequel that one-ups the previous Star Trek movie at every turn. Without all the baggage of having to meet die-hard Trekkie expectations like he experienced the first time around, director J.J. Abrams is now free to play in his creative sandbox and deliver a darker, even more adventurous follow-up to his 2009 hit.
