J.J. Abrams has released the trailer for the next Star Trek movie: Into the Darkness. Just watch it, because it's awesome. Seriously. I mean, I'm sold just on the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch—of Sherlock Holmes fame—plays the bad guy. That's enough for me, but this teaser makes me want it all now!

It seems the movie is really going to be dark. Like Batman: The Dark Knight Rises kind of dark, but without the pointy ears and without all that latex and a lot more lens flares.

Update: Ooooooh, a reader just forwarded the URL for the Japanese teaser trailer, which has extra footage. Spot the differences!
