When the crew of The Enterprise returns home, they find that an unstoppable force of terror from within has destroyed the fleet and everything it stands for
Star Trek: Into Darkness begins with a homecoming, as the Enterprise returns to earth in the wake of a galactic incident.
Enemy From Within
But all is not well. A devastating act of terror has exposed an alarming reality: Star Fleet is being attacked from within and the fall-out will leave the entire world in crisis. Captain Kirk leads the Enterprise on a mission spanning the Klingon home world to Earth.
Kirk will lead them into a shadowy mirror-realm of doubts where they’ve never gone before – navigating the razor-thin lines between friends and enemies, revenge and justice, all-out war and potential for a united future.
Old and New Faces
Returning to the Enterprise is the crew: Chris Pine as Captain James T Kirk, Zachary Quinto as First Officer Spock, Karl Urban as Dr Leonard “Bones” McCoy, Simon Pegg as Chief Engineer “Scotty” Scott, Zoe Saldana as Communications Officer Uhura, John Cho as Helmsman Hikaru Sulu, and Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov.
Joining the cast is Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of the mysterious intergalactic terrorist and Alice Eve as ship newcomer Carol Marcus.
A New Frontier
Shot with extremely high resolution IMAX cameras and presented in an expansively detailed 3D conversion that pushes technology, the film gives audiences a glimpse into the Star Trek universe as hasn’t been seen before.
This marks the first time audiences will experience Star Trek eight-stories high and in three dimensions.
Changes and Revelations
When Starfleet is shattered by a terrifying attack, the crew must not only face the shadow side of Starfleet and a fearsomely brilliant new enemy, but will question the only thing they’ll be able to rely on in an unpredictable universe: each other.
Says Producer Bryan Burk: “I think JJ has gone to the next step of complexity, so that people might leave the theatre after this one asking, ‘wow, that was a Star Trek film?’”
