With costumes that look ripped out of "Tron: Legacy" (nice helmet, bro), some future worlds boasting a "Blade Runner" griminess and a pretty obvious and huge nod to "Star Wars" (basically a recreation of the scene where Luke Skywalker flies in to destroy the Death Star), this one looks to be ticking a number of boxes. And what the hell, it's pretty exciting stuff. Abrams knows how to put off spectacle and excitement and while diehard Trekkies might frown at the less cerebral (no scenes of dudes talking on the deck of the Enterprise and working things out) and more explosion-y take, there's no doubt this is the stuff of good popcorn.
"Star Trek Into Darkness" opens on May 17th. Watch below.
