"Star Trek Into Darkness" (2013) is a feature film, directed by J.J. Abrams, in which the young officers of The U.S.S. Enterprise set course for their most epic journey yet. The film reunites with the team that created the fun, the humor, and the spirit of the acclaimed hit reboot of the beloved franchise, "Star Trek," in 2009. On this second voyage, they've amped the action, raised the emotional stakes and launched the Enterprise into a high-wire, life-or-death game of chess with an unstoppable force of destruction. With everything the men and women of The Enterprise believe on the line, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn and sacrifices must be made for the only family Captain Kirk has left: the crew he commands.

It begins with a homecoming, as The Enterprise returns to earth in the wake of a controversial galactic incident, its brash Captain still itching to head back into the stars on a longer mission of peace and exploration. But all is not well on the Blue Planet. A devastating act of terror has exposed an alarming reality: Star Fleet is being attacked from within and the fall-out will leave the entire world in crisis. Captain Kirk leads the Enterprise on a mission like no other spanning from the Klingon home world to the San Francisco Bay. Aboard The Enterprise the enemy among them has a shocking talent for destruction. Kirk will lead them into a shadowy mirror-realm of doubts where they've never gone before — navigating the razor-thin lines between friends and enemies, revenge and justice, all-out war and the infinite potential of a united future.

Returning to The Enterprise is the crew that brought it so viscerally to life in Abrams' " Star Trek": Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as First Officer Spock, Karl Urban as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Simon Pegg as Chief Engineer "Scotty" Scott, Zoe Saldana as Communications Officer Uhura, John Cho as Helmsman Hikaru Sulu, Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov and Bruce Greenwood as Admiral Christopher Pike. Joining the cast is Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of the mysterious intergalactic terrorist John Harrison, Alice Eve as ship newcomer Carol Marcus and Peter Weller as the Star Fleet Admiral who comes into conflict with the Enterprise.

Shot with extremely high resolution IMAX cameras and presented in an expansively detailed 3D conversion that pushes the technology, the film gives audiences a glimpse into the "Star Trek" universe as it hasn't been seen before.
