The first official theatrical poster has been revealed for the forthcoming Paramount Star Trek sequel Star Trek Into Darkness. The image, which sees a character emerge from destruction, seems to mirror the plot summary which quietly made its way online last week:
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.
The J. J. Abrams-directed film will be in theaters on May 17, 2013 and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Benedict Cumberbatch.
