Even though J.J. Abrams‘ involvement with Star Wars: Episode VII has been clogging up most media outlets, it probably might be nice of him to continue promoting his upcoming movie Star Trek Into Darkness. I’ve almost all but forgotten about it since the announcement of him directing the new Star Wars and that kind of sucks, because I dug his take on Star Trek.
Star Trek Into Darkness looks like it could be a bigger and more fun sequel, capitalizing on the 3D and IMAX surcharges along the way. I have no doubt that Abrams will make a fun and polished sci-fi with Into Darkness, but will it have any sort of smarts beyond being just a popcorn summer flick? Maybe. Maybe not.
The film stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and the mysterious Benedict Cumberbatch.
Star Trek Into Darkness opens on May 17th, 2013.
