In case you did not know, there is a new Star Trek movie coming out in 2013! Star Trek: Into Darkness is expected to be released in the United States in May 2013 and in South Africa in July 2013. This upcoming science fiction / action film that tells the story of the crew of the Enterprise finding an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization. Captain Kirk leads a manhunt into a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
Star Trek: Into Darkness is directed by J.J. Abrams (who is also the co-creator of television’s Fringe, Alias and Lost and the director of the 2009 Star Trek film). The screenplay for the film was written by Alex Kurtzman, Damon Lindelof and Roberto Orci. You can expect appearances by most of the cast from the previous film. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Simon Pegg and Benedict Cumberbatch will be starring in the upcoming film.
Star Trek: Into Darkness is the 12th Star Trek film since 1979. Science Fiction fans from all over the world are getting amped up for the release of this film. This is definitely one of the most anticipated films of 2013. I’m curious to see what Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Bones, Scotty and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise is going to get up to. Let’s hope that it isn’t “one of those boring sequels”. The trailer for this film has me thinking otherwise though – I think it’s going to be AWESOME.
See? I told you that it’s going to be AWESOME. What do you think of Star Trek: Into Darkness? Are you giving this a skip or are you buying your ticket two weeks before it’s released? Leave a comment and let me know.
