By Brent Lang
"Star Trek" fans will get their first look at what's next for Captain Kirk and crew thanks to a sneak peek on IMAX 3D screens this December.
Bing: More about Chris Pine
Paramount Pictures will premiere nine minutes from the J.J. Abrams sequel, which carries the impressively vague title of "Star Trek Into Darkness."

The film, which brings back a cast that includes Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, hits theaters on May 17, 2013.
This first look at what's cooking on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise will play in some 500 digital IMAX 3D theatres beginning Dec. 14. It will serve as the opening act to IMAX screenings of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
It marks only the third time a first look will be released in IMAX.
Never thought I could buy off on a new Kirk/Spock/Bones/Crew. I tend to be loyal to originals (ie: only Sean Connery is James Bond, etc). But the first movie of this reboot was surprisingly good, and the new Spock and McCoy were astonishingly similar to their predecessors. I look forward to the next installment.
This is for Chiles43--Did you ever go to school? Are you as dumb as your sentences?
You need your "real burnied," to borrow a quote from you.
He tried to show, in many cases, that we could and would someday overcome our differences, our petty and long-standing bigotries, our intolerance and, most importantly, the slow destruction of this world, the ONLY one we have right now.. He and other writers wrote many great episodes that tried to show us their were better ways to go about things and who knows how much influence they had.. Sometimes it seems as though they had none at all but most of us old 'Trekkies' still have some deep-seated hope for a real 'Star Trek' Universe..
I'm a huge fan of Star Trek, but was disappointed by the movie. Don't get me wrong it’s still a good movie in fact I own it - but the whole alternate timeline is very very old theme. Along the lines of the evil twin/doppelganger/clone whatever.
In the original Star Trek universe where the” Prime” Spock (Leonard Nimoy) was from they travelled into the past many times to save the future. Would this Spock now stuck in an alternate timeline have settled for the destruction of two worlds and billions upon billions of lives - that’s not the Mr. Spock I remember.
The “Prime” Spock also states at one point to the younger Mr. Spock (Quinto)”since my customary farewell would seem self-serving I merely say good luck” – if this was an alternate timeline the younger Spock’ future would take a different direction than the older – it was illogical for the Prime Spock to assume otherwise.
I’m hoping as long as they keep making them – they will improve just as all the series did with time.
----time (hopefully not travel) will tell. LLAP
New series is great. Best selection of actors for a new Sci-Fi movie ever.
I loved the new Star Trek for all the reasons mentioned here. I loved the new take on Warp Space. I loved the fact that the Enterprise has plumbing. (Obviously not the grey-water pipes) I loved that Kirk's dad was Thor (Heh heh). They did a great job with actors to play the parts. The glaring exception was a teeny-boppin Kirk. There should have been more intelligence, and less posturing to his arrogance + competence. Don't get me wrong, I love Chris Pine. I consider it a major scripting + directoral error.
CHILES43, 2 words- Spell Check. Too bad there's not a Punctuation Check and a Stupid Check.
JJ Abrams should stick to producing mediocre TV series and stop trying to "direct" feature films. Especially when the source material he works with has already been done better in the first place! Abrams, Orci, and Kurtzman are hacks. The last so called "Star Trek" film they made was not even Star Trek. It was a really badly made, contrived, lens flare/plot hole filled science fiction film that simply contained elements of the original Star Trek.
That's where the similarities end.
Abrams is putting the final nails in Star Trek's coffin.
