First Clips: 'Star Trek Into Darkness'

Many have assumed/prognosticated/theorized that Star Trek Into Darkness would take on a Wrath of Khan arc, and end with the death of Spock.

And while we'll have to wait until May to see if J.J. Abrams' Star sequel sticks to the storyline set forth in the 1982 film, a new clip from Into Darkness highlights Spock's self-sacrificing nature.

Thankfully, a second clip sorta reveals that Spock survives that initial encounter -- but, in a third clip, we see that things are no less dire for the Enterprise crew once Benedict Cumberbatch's character comes aboard. Watch!

Star Trek Into Darkness opens May 17.
