New International Trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness Focuses on the Villain

"None of you are safe."
Since the first trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel Star Trek Into Darkness was rolled out, fans have been wondering what villain Benedict Cumberbatch's (BBC's Sherlock; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) would be playing. While Trekkers kept their Vulcan fingers crossed Cumberbatch was playing a reinvention of the titular antagonist from 1982's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, it was eventually revealed that the character had the less interesting name of John Harrison, described by Cumberbatch as a "one-man terrorist, who does despicable things for a noble cause."
That is certainly on display in the newly-released, international trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, which gives its focus to Cumberbatch's Harrison, who starts out the trailer by attacking Starfleet, immediately prompting Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) into action. Also revealed is the first look at Peter Weller's (Robocop, Dexter) character as well as a more, um, let's say revealing look at Alice Eve as Dr. Carol Marcus.
Star Trek Into Darkness was written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof and was directed by J.J. Abrams.
