Simon Pegg was kind enough to tweet a link to the first trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness this morning. It comes just a couple of days after an apocalyptic-looking poster for the movie emerged and gives us a tantalising taste of what J.J. Abrams and Co. have come up with for this big budget sequel.

Benedict Cumberbatch's appearance as the villain in the trailer, complete with a menacing voice-over and even a glimpse of his otter-faced bonce, is particularly exciting. Plus it's always nice to see stuff blowing up and handsome men jumping off alien cliffs.

Star Trek Into Darkness is out next May. Here's hoping that the Star Wars sequels end up being half as good.
