Clipping Star Trek Into Darkness

Check out the colorful skin-tight uniforms and panic-stricken Enterprise crew in the first clip released from J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness (IMAX 3D May 15, wide May 17).

Zachary Quinto’s Spock attempts to disable a volcano on an apparent suicide mission (“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few,” echoing The Wrath of Khan), but the stubborn Kirk (Chris Pine) refuses to give up. It’s a nice setup for the events that follow involving terrorist Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirk’s rite of passage. The volcanic environment with Spock also shows off some nice VFX from ILM with its latest fluid sim advancements.
