WATCH: First Footage of Star Trek Into Darkness [UPDATED]

It’s here! Just as Simon Pegg announced earlier this week, the first trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel has hit the web.

The one-minute and six-second trailer showcases some major destruction being handed down by Benedict Cumberbatch’s still unconfirmed character. Prior to today, leaked photos from the set and the incredibly short three-frame glimpse Abrams showed off during an appearance on the Conan O’Brien show was all we had seen of the film.

Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the film’s villain, handles voice-over duties in the trailer. In an ominous tone, Cumberbatch says:

You think your world is safe. It is an illusion. A comforting lie to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned, to have my vengeance. So, shall we begin?

Check out the trailer for yourself below.

UPDATE: The Japanese version of the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer with 15-seconds of footage.
