Twelve brand new ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ photos guarantee a beautiful looking film

There’s one thing we can already be sure about when it comes to Star Trek Into Darkness: The film is looking gorgeous.

Twelve new Star Trek Into Darkness photos released today depict much of the lead cast, including newcomer and foe Benedict Cumberbatch. We also see director J.J. Abrams on set and Chris Pine filming an action sequence in which he’s clinging onto a wall for dear life. Zoe Saldana, who plays Nyota Uhura and was recently attached to an upcoming Marvel film, appears in two of the photos. Check ’em out in the gallery below:

Thanks to Empire Magazine, who unveiled the pics. Its latest issue includes a cover story on Star Trek Into Darkness.

Late last month we were treated to a great trailer and a new poster featuring Benedict Cumberbatch.

Directed by J.J. Abrams with a screenplay by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (who wrote the first film), Star Trek Into Darkness reunites 2009’s Star Trek cast of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Simon Pegg and Karl Urban, as well as newcomers Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Noel Clarke, and Peter Weller.

Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX on May 15 and in regular theaters on May 17.
