Benedict as perfidious villain John Harrison teaches Cpt. Kirk and the Enterprise crew to fear as never before in their lives..

Star Trek Into Darkness started in Germany with a spectacular and technically complex premiere in Berlin on 29 April 2013.
It is already the twelfth feature film about the adventures of the Starship Enterprise crew, also based on the cult TV Series Star Trek, created by Gene Roddenberry, with William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk and Leonard Nimoy as the most famous extraterrestrial fellow Vulcan Mr. Spock.
In the run up to the release Paramount relesed 14 poster announcement including animated Flash versions. In addition, there have been Announcement Trailers already in December last year, three more teasers, another international trailer in March 2013  and one in April 2013. For the German speaking fans, however, only the announcement trailer, a teaser, which was produced for the Super Bowl and the international teaser have been released in German.

The first published poster was already nominated at the Golden Trailer Awards in the category Best Summer 2013 Blockbuster Poster Award, the Super Bowl trailer, moreover, received a nomination for Best Summer Blockbuster 2013 TV Spot.

The soundtrack used for the first teasers is The Awakening by Brian Tyler. For the Super Bowl spot Siege Towers by Audiomachine was used, the latest trailers gave us Knightfall by Immediate Music and Icarus performed by Superhuman.

The official advertising campaign for the film started on the 24th of March 2013 in London. In an extraordinary show Paramount sent 30 mini-quadrocopter into the sky, which there formed the famous Star Trek logo. The magnificent spectacle was realized by the Austrian Ars Electronica Futurelab from Linz, which can proudly say to be the only one that can offer this sophisticated technical know-how for a spectacle like this worldwide, the mini-flying robots were produced by Ascending Technologies in Munich.

Director JJ Abrams created a top-class sci-fi adventure. On board the Enterprise crew is “Captain James T. Kirk” Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as Spock, Benedict Cumberbatch will appear as his terrifying opponent John Harrison in an unusual role as a dangerous enemy, one the Enterprise crew never faced before.

What is it about:
The new adventures of the Enterprise start with an attempt to save the planet Nibiru, which is threatened by extinction from an impending volcanic eruption. Spock therefore takes the risk and goes into the seething volcano. Contrary to the Prime Directive of the Federation, never to take any influence on the development of foreign cultures, Captain Kirk decides to save his team member – and ascends the Enterprise before the eyes of the residents of Niburu. Thus, Kirk looses the command over his ship. However, his mentor Admiral Pike, who is appointed as the new commander, brings him back on board as first officer.

Shortly after, a devastating bomb attack takes place in the middle of London in a weapons lab, disguised as an archive of Starfleet. The headquarter is on high alert – in a meeting of the supreme commanders, also attended by Kirk, the alleged terrorist is identified as a former Fleet officer named John Harrison. And John Harrison attacks the meeting parties, kills amongst others also Kirk’s mentor and friend, Admiral Pike and can escape.

What follows is a relentless hunt for an apparently invulnerable enemy who always seems to be one step ahead. But the truth is just more frightening …..
