Check out the new poster for J. J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Trek Into Darkness." Abrams will preview new footage and offer an intro to the world on December 9 and 10.

The film hits theaters on May 17, 2013. The official synopsis alludes to "an unstoppable force of terror from within [the Enterprise's] own operation," and that Captain Kirk has "a personal score to settle," hellbent on capturing "a one-man weapon of mass destruction." The Enterprise certainly looks ravaged in the new poster.

Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto return for the new installment, with Benedict Cumberbatch of "Sherlock" fame playing the film's villain (rumored to be Khan). EW reports the man in the trenchcoat from the poster is in fact Cumberbatch.
