Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana return to lead in the J.J. Abrams sequel, "Star Trek Into Darkness," in which Captain Kirk (Pine) will venture to a dangerous world in order to save his own. Paramount has just released the trailer, and so far it seems like a bizarre/exciting mix of "Inception" meets "Prometheus," of course with a necessary dose of "Sherlock's" Benedict Cumberbatch:


The movie is set to release May 17.
