J.J. Abrams’ vision of the classic space-faring franchise continues to dominate the increasingly-crowded sci-fi genre.

That being said, Star Trek Into Darkness is a brilliant blockbuster – just expect it to be closer to Transformers than to Wrath of Khan.
Star Trek Into Darkness has a new trailer and an earlier release date for IMAX.
