Paramount’s trickling out tiny teasers to keep our interest piqued, first a poster, then that awesome trailer, and now Benedict Cumberbatch locked up in the brig. Something tells me, by the menacing distain for Kirk written across his face, he’s not going to stay there for very long.
We still don’t know a heck of a lot about him, but apparently he’ll be called ‘John Harrison’, which doesn’t mean anything to me. I still reckon we might see something of the Wrath of Khan here, but I guess we’ll have to wait to find out. We do know Cumberbatch is, or once was, Star Fleet, so read into that what you will. At any rate, he looks like he’s going to be an awesome bad guy, though possibly not on the same scale as Javier Bardem (can anyone out-creep that guy?). [ComingSoon via TotalFilm]
