'Star Trek Into Darkness' trailer: Benedict Cumberbatch has a ship now


The newest trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness mostly features some new looks at sequences you’ll recognize from earlier trailers. The red-tinted Dr. Strangelove war room, the Enterprise falling to earth, Captain Pike doing his best impression of Tom Skerritt from Top Gun, Chris Pine’s eyes shining as blue as a sapphire supernova: Check, check, checkeroo!

It’s colored dark, because it’s eeeeevil. And am I crazy, or does it look a little bit like the Enterprise-E from the Next Generation movies?

Now that your mind has been blown, here’s the new trailer:
