Spock busts out that groovy “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few” line in the first clip from J.J. Abrams’ second (and last?) “Star Trek” movie, emerging out of darkness next month. I’m guessing this is early in the film, since it doesn’t seem likely Abrams and company will be spoiling a major scene as the movie’s first officially released clip. (Of course, I could be wrong.)
And is it me, or is Simon Pegg as Scotty really pouring on the thick accent in this one? You might wanna go a little easy there, hoss.
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.
“Star Trek Into Darkness” stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Peter Weller, Bruce Greenwood, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
