More Terrifying Cumberbatch Action In The Third ‘Star Trek’ Trailer

Star Trek, Benedict, FINAL

You’ll be sure and tell us when you’ve had enough of watching Benedict Cumberbatch look hate-filled and withering in trailers for Star Trek Into Darkness, won’t you? Because I don’t think we’re quite there yet.

In fact, there’s a point mid-way through this latest trailer – which builds on the sterling work the second one did in establishing Benedict’s John Harrison as the baddy with the doomiest voice since Darth Vader lost his asthma inhaler – where we go from portentious movie trailer bangs and crashes into a Cumberbatch voiceover, and that’s when things get REALLY tense:

And this is just one day after a ton of character posters was revealed, and that was a day after a new TV spot came out. Basically, May 17 can’t come quickly enough.

Of course, if you ARE tired of all the explosive hype, you should probably read one of our other blog posts. They’re literally all good.
