Over the past few years, Zachary Quinto has established his acting rep by playing Sylar in Heroes, a couple of memorable roles on American Horror Story, and, of course, Spock in the last two Star Trek movies. So you could describe his transition into producing as, well, “logical.” Certainly it has gotten off to an encouraging start. Quinto produced director J.C. Chandor’s financial crisis movie Margin Call through the actor’s Before the Door company — the production outfit he runs with partners Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson — and exec produced Chandor’s Robert Redford-starring All Is Lost, which just screened at Cannes.

What’s a sci-fi action movie without a good high-octane chase scene? It wouldn’t be Star Trek Into Darkness, that’s for sure.
J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel to his 2009 reboot of the franchise is still three weeks away, but you can get another bite of the Star Trek Into Darkness action now with a new clip from a chase scene in the movie. But don’t be surprised if that bite tastes just as mysterious as all the other promotion Paramount has been rolling out — there are no revelations about the movie’s plot here, but there is an adrenaline-filled spacecraft chase that looks (and sounds) rather like Star Wars, and there are some fun moments with Zachary Quinto’s Spock being characteristically logical and Chris Pine bringing back his daring and defiant Captain Kirk.

The latest clip from Star Trek Into Darkness doesn’t reveal a whole lot more about the general plot, but it does give us a peek onto the bridge of the USS Enterprise.
From the trailers we’ve already seen, we know there will be a lot of peril, and in this scene it’s Spock whose life is in danger at the mouth of an active volcano. Beaming him back to the ship seems impossible, based on what the engineer and pilot are saying. And Bones, the king of real talk, delivers the most dramatic line of the clip: ”He’d let you die.”

Leave it to J.J. Abrams to release a behind-the-scenes featurette of his new movie that contains basically no new footage and yet is still totally compelling.
In a just-released behind-the-scenes look at Star Trek Into Darkness, director and crew chat about the making-of the sequel in between video clips mostly pulled from the previous trailers. It has the effect of: a) showing you very little new information while also b) reminding you how nice it is to hear Abrams & Co. talk appreciatively about the Enterprise & Co. A play-by-play:
There are a great many beguiling, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them moments packed into the new teaser trailer — or, to use the odd industry parlance, “announcement” trailer — for Star Trek Into Darkness. There’s Kirk (Chris Pine) and McCoy (Karl Urban) running through some kind of dark red alien cornfield; a massive starship (the Enterprise?) rising out of the ocean; a teary Scotty (Simon Pegg) clutching a weepy Uhura (Zoe Saldana); and a determined Spock (Zachary Quinto) racing through what appears to be the streets of 23rd century San Francisco.
But the moment that is sure to spark the imaginations of Trekkies everywhere isn’t seen, it’s spoken — by the seeming villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch (i.e. Benny Batch). “You think your world is safe,” he intones darkly over shots that start out on Earth. “It is an illusion, a comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned. To have. My. Vengeance.”
You catch that? “For I have returned.” Wonder who in the Trek universe would have left Earth, only to return, filled with…what’s the right word? Wrath? Hmmm. I wonder…
UPDATE: Okay, coyness is over: As DigitalSpy first noted, the Japanese version of this teaser includes an obvious direct homage to 1982′s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It comes at the very end, and is something of a possible spoiler, suggesting the fate of one of Trek‘s most beloved characters.
