STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, directed by J.J. Abrams, follows the crew of The Enterprise as they are called back home to Earth in the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice. 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. The film earned more than $450 million worldwide upon its release in May.
STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS was written by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof and directed by J.J. Abrams. Abrams produced with Bryan Burk through Bad Robot Productions, along with Lindelof, Kurtzman and Orci.
