Star Trek: Into Darkness First Poster

When J.J. Abrams was announce as the director of the Star Trek reboot, geeks the world over. When we saw what he had done with our beloved Starfleet we sighed in relief then squeed with delight.

So, it should come as no surprise that the sequel, Star Trek: Into Darkness, is high on our priority list for 2013. The poster itself shows who we can only assume is the main antagonist (Benedict Cumberbatch). What we don't know is whether he will be playing the role of Khan as many a geek would love, or the much less known Gary Mitchell, an ex-Starfleet officer who goes rogue.

Check out the official synopsis and details about the upcoming trailer after the jump!



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.
