WATCH: Benedict Cumberbatch Dominates New ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Trailer

Star Trek, Benedict, Arrested

OK, so we’ve seen what he looks like in the movie and we’ve heard him speak, but until a few hours ago, no one was quite sure what or who John Harrison is, apart from Benedict Cumberbatch’s character in Star Trek Into Darkness.

I mean he’s clearly a rotten stinker and a cad, of course, we were all fairly certain about that.

Now with the release of this new trailer, his role in proceedings has been made a lot clearer, and it’s not unlike that of Javier Bardem’s similarly beastly rogue in Skyfall, except a lot more science-fictiony.

Yeah, this will definitely do until Sherlock season 3 is finally ready.
