Star Trek: First Glimpse of Darkness

The sequel to JJ Abrams' rebooted Star Trek is due to hit theaters this May, just over five months from now, so it's natural that the promo campaign has started to kick into gear. The first trailer for the film, saddled with the unwieldy appellation Star Trek Into Darkness, will be attached to The Hobbit next week, but should hit the web before then (and I'll post it as soon as it goes up). In advance of that, though, here's the teaser poster for the movie, which clearly seems inspired in its iconography by the poster for another recent, highly-anticipated sequel. Paramount has also released the official synopsis for the movie, but since it might be considered spoiler-y, I've put it after the jump just in case.

"In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness. When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. 
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.”
