A new teaser for June’s Star Trek Into Darkness has been released today. Unlike the previews trailers, this one seems to focus more on Kirk (Chris Pine) and crew than it does on the villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Interesting to note, that Cumberbatch’s character is referred to as John Harrison on a display screen. Is this more of director J. J. Abrams screwing with us over whether the British actor is actually playing classic Trek villain Khan or should we just take what we glimpse here at face value? The trailer also highlights what looks to be the crew’s motivation – revenge for the terrorist attacks that Harrison commits. (A perhaps unfortunate coincidence given the events in Boston yesterday.)
