'Star Trek Into Darkness' Trailer: The Enterprise Is 'Dead' (Video)

The J.J. Abrams sci-fi film hits theaters May 17.

Things look extremely grim for Captain Kirk and his crew in the third trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness.

Kirk (Chris Pine) is outgunned and outsmarted by villain John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), who is shown cruising around the galaxy in a ship that’s more imposing than the Enterprise.

There’s lots of ominous talk, from “The ship’s dead, sir” (Simon Pegg’s Scotty) to “No ship should go down without her captain” (Cumberbatch). But perhaps most chilling is Kirk simply saying “I’m sorry” to his crew after the enemy ship shows up. It’s an uncharacteristically humble moment for the brash captain, suggesting he knows he's in big trouble.
