John Harrison has a message for Uhura and get a first look at the Klingons from Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness

These promo videos featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as John Harrison make me think that the villain is in a cave somewhere releasing threats to the crew of the Enterprise Osama bin Laden style. We've previously heard Cumberbatch's deliciously evil sounding voice as he took aim at Kirk and Spock and now it's Uhura's turn. Yahoo! Movies has the exclusive new video and on top of Harrison's psych profile on Zoe Saldana's character we also get a glimpse of a Klingon without his helmet on for the very first time.

With all the talk being about who Cumberbatch is really playing I almost forgot that Klingons will be appearing in STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. It's a very quick look at the alien race and Bleeding Cool was helpful enough to take a couple of screencaps from the footage of the Klingon.

Klingon 2

It's pretty clear that Harrison plans on breaking the crew of the Enterprise physically and mentally and it makes me tingle to think of what kind of destruction and chaos he's going to deliver in the film.

Directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Alice Eve and Peter Weller, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS is in theaters on May 17th, 2013 but you can catch it early in IMAX on May 15th, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: How do you feel about the look of J.J. Abrams' Klingons? Good? Bad? Indifferent?

I am not sure why they changed the look of the Klingons from this time frame for the movie. In the original series, the Klingons had a more Human like appearance; no ridges on their heads, pale skin, etc. In the DS9 episode, Trials and Tribble-ations, Worf alludes as to why Klingons in Kirk's era are different from how he looks but does not explain what happened. I guess, since the ridges on the actor's head in the screencap are not as pronounced, they may have gone with a more alien look for

I guess, since the ridges on the actor's head in the screencap are not as pronounced, they may have gone with a more alien look for the Klingons in the film that resembles how they look on ST: TNG. I like that they are trying to bridge the difference between the shows with the film.

Do you actually think JJ watched (or even cared) about any of that back story? He is doing what he wants regardless of what has happened before. The Romulans were terrible also.

Well, it appears that someone is thinking about it (as you can see from the image above). The Klingon above looks more like an ST: TNG Klingon and not an original series version. Then again, it could just be a happy accident.

Please don't let that klingon be that shitty dude from the WWE or was it WWF, that played the president in the 5th element. Cross eyed dude sucks!

I like the look for the Klingons, it feels a little more natural and less "rubber forehead" (though that was a big part of the appeal). Netforce has a great point about it looking like Lou Gossett Jr in Enemy Mine.

Klingons look more or less on par with earlier incarnations. This guy just looks like he shaved his head instead of letting the hair grow long. Truth be told, I'm not sure why Klingons would have a different look to them in an alternate timeline. Klingons were a society and culture before the events of the last Star Trek movie. Not sure how Kirk losing his father would result in them revamping their entire society. Is this the first plot hole of Star Trek Into Darkness?

Christopher Plummer in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country looks different to Worf in TNG, too. Get a grip, dude, it's frickin' Star Trek.

Mick - the reason is JJ doesnt give a flying fuck about retaining any history or paying respect to anything star trek related - didnt you see the first film? He is making his action scifi movie - calling it star trek and watching people fall in love with it who dont give a shit about star trek and just want to see action in space (or in this case, action on earth i guess, since that is what STAR TREK is about) Cumberbatch is a fantastic actor though.

Hey, J-man, go back to jerking it to Kirk fighting Gorn. The rest of us don't give a shit about the shitty, cliche-ridden original series. It sucked.
