New teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness: watch now

“Punch it!”

Star Trek Into Darkness has released a new trailer online, featuring the welcome addition of wry humour to the epic foreboding of the first trailer.

The new teaser focuses on Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk, still every bit as cocky as he was first time around, but with even more responsibility now he’s officially in charge of the Enterprise.

However, Captain Pike’s warnings of recklessness seem to be falling on deaf ears, as Kirk pushes his luck ever further, with one hair-raising game of chicken proving a case in point…

Take a look, below:

It’s nice to see a return to the knowing back and forth between Kirk and Spock, although we won’t pretend the biggest jolts of excitement are provided by the steely-eyed presence of Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain. We can’t wait to see him in action…

Directed by J.J. Abrams and co-starring Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Karl Urban, Star Trek Into Darkness opens in the UK on 17 May 2013.
