Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer

I’m here today to talk to you about the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness. JJ Abram’s sequel to his 2009 reboot of the Star Trek franchise. I have just recently watched the Superbowl advertisement. OKAY, I’ve watched it quite a lot in the last hour.

I’m pretty stoked for this movie. It has Benjamin Cumberlatch. Yes, that’s the only reason you need to go see this movie. Benjamin Cumberlatch. Who is he playing? John Harrison. Who is John Harrison in the World of Star Trek? No he’s not Khan (KHAAAAN!!) nor is he Gary Mitchell.

In the trailers it seems that John Harrison may in fact know Kirk & Co. He could be based on the character “Harrison” who made several appearances in minor roles. That’s all we know.

Who else is excited for this movie? A show of hands? I am… *raises hand*
