    @michael Rowe maybe it's just very dark....

    I can't beleive they are going ahead with that dreadful title. Yikes! Should be Star Trek: Into Darkness. The only worse title to "Star Trek Into Darkness" would be Star Wars: Attack of the Clones! I;m still hoping that that fugly Enterprise gets destroyed and we get the one that's more like the original. This one looks like a Lexus with rediculous bulging fenders and a primary hull pushed back like it was in an accident.
