New Star Trek Into Darkness picture and details
Just who are Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve playing in Star Trek Into Darkness? We've got some answers...
Minor spoiler warning: inevitably, we're going to talk about something that you may not want to know if you wish to the see the film cold.
Arriving in cinemas later this week is both the nine minute opening sequence of JJ Abrams' eagerly-awaited Star Trek Into Darkness (playing before certain IMAX screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), and a longer trailer for the film (which is expected to be released online next week). Given how long the covers have remained on the new Star Trek movie, it seems a very sudden flood of information about it.
And now we've found out some more news, too. Specifically, the names of the characters that both Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve will be playing.
Cumberbatch's character has been named by Paramount as John Harrison. There's still reasonable money on him turning out to be Gary Mitchell by the time the film is out. Or Khan, of course. But for now, John Harrison he is.
Alice Eve, meanwhile, is playing Carol Marcus. She's a character who appeared in Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, and intriguingly, one who had a relationship with Kirk, eventually giving birth to his son.
There's also a new picture from the film that's been released, and you can see that below.
Star Trek Into Darkness arrives in cinemas next May.
