Not One But Two Exclusive ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Clips Plus a Giveaway to Boot!
There are two main reasons why J.J. Abrams has been so successful at rebooting "Star Trek." 1) We care so deeply about the very human, ever fallible characters. 2) The action boldly goes where few others dare.
Our exclusive "Star Trek Into Darkness" extended Blu-ray clip above showcases both these reasons perfectly. The clip finds Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), and Uhura (Zoe Saldana) jettisoning from the Enterprise into a supposedly abandoned region of Klingon territory. The trio has a lock on John Harris, aka Khan, (Benedict Cumberbatch), who recently shot up Starfleet, incurring the wrath of Kirk.
Since "STID" is worth extra celebration, we're also giving you not one, but two exclusive clips! And the clip below you can't find anywhere else — not on the Blu-ray extras, not on the digital download, only here at Yahoo Movies. It's a fine example of how Abrams goes about humanizing his characters, in this case Cumberbatch's complex and riveting Khan.
But "STID" is so good that we're STILL not done celebrating! To ring in today's Blu-ray/DVD release of "Star Trek Into Darkness," we're doing a giveaway! One lucky Yahoo Movie Twitter follower will win a Blu-ray of the film as well as a poster signed by Abrams, Pine, Quinto, Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, and Simon Pegg. And two runners up will each receive "STID" Blu-rays. Now that's some interstellar excellence!
