Want to watch the first 10 minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness?
No matter what J.J. Abrams does, he simply cannot stop the Internet. Some random guy recorded the first 10 minutes of the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness and put it online for all to see. Sure, it’s shaky and blurry, and no, it doesn’t give us any hints as to the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch’s enigmatic villain, but it’ll give you a good idea of what the film is about and get you excited ahead of its May 17 release date nonetheless.
The 10 minute prologue was originally attached to midnight IMAX showings of the Hobbit on December 14th.
Here’s the synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness:
“The film finds the crew of the Enterprise called back home where they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization that 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.”
