PHOTO: Close Up Look at Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘Star Trek Intro Darkness’

Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters on May 17, 2013 and as we get closer to the premiere date we get closer and closer to the characters themselves. This close up shot of Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) as villain John Harrison gives us a bit more insight as what to expect.

What is he thinking? (Paramount)

While it isn’t an action shot and there isn’t much to interpret, his mere expression leaves us wondering? Is he upset? Confused? Is the sun in his eyes? Possibly it is a permacrinkle and that’s just how he looks. The new still is welcomed as we count down to the much-anticipated follow up to the 2009 film Star Trek also directed by J.J. Abrams (Cloverfield).

Are you going to check it out in theaters?
