Star Trek Into Darkness Teaser Poster

The Star Trek Into Darkness promotion team is a gift that keeps on giving. Here we have another clip from the upcoming film. In this one there’s an epic showdown between Pine’s Kirk and Cumberbatch’s Harrison, featuring a possible motivation for Harrison’s defection from Star Fleet, an ominous ending, and two sets of intense, piercing eyes. Take a look:

In related news, director J.J. Abrams has won the Emmy’s special “Founders Award,” given to those whose work “crosses cultural boundaries to touch our common humanity.” That sounds fitting for a man who has brought us several iconic television shows and films, including the beloved Star Trek reboot movies. Abrams will receive his award at the 41st International Emmy Awards Gala on November 25, 2013, in New York City.

Star Trek Into Darkness will be released May 9 in the UK and May 17 in the US. What do you think of the new clip? What do you think Harrison mean by his “72 reasons” remark? Let us know in the comments below!
