This leaked clip from Star Trek Into Darkness showcases Benedict Cumberbatch's intense acting ability (Major Spoiler Alert!)

May. 14, 2013by:

With STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS debuting in North America in less than a week, most of you will soon be finding out the plot twists and turns that have been shrouded in secrecy for the last several months. Some of you will be pleased and some will be disappointed but everyone will soon learn the name Benedict Cumberbatch.

For a while now, only those familiar with BBC's SHERLOCK and the films TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, WAR HORSE, and a handful of others knew of the high caliber acting talent Cumberbatch posesses. I am certain his popularity will skyrocket come this Friday. With that in mind, for those of you who are not afraid of spoilers, check out this leaked clip from STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS that features Cumberbatch monologue-ing as John Harrison. He is at once frightening and very sympathetic and yet you know there is more than he is letting on.

I will only say this one more time, but SPOILER ALERT!. This clip hints at John Harrison's true identity without directly saying who he is, but it does give away the identity of another character's true motives. So, watch with caution.

If this is even a fraction of what we can expect from Benedict Cumberbatch in STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, we are in for a Heath Ledger caliber villain. I hope that everyone is not let down when they catch the movie opening Thursday, May 16th.

If there has to be a BLADE RUNNER sequel...i'd like to see Cumberbatch in that film.

wow, good call!
anyway, while the movie was nice at best, i was pleasantly surprised a(nother) big Hollywood blockbuster still was shot on film. Very cool. The reason why this movie looked breathtaking (in contrary to Ironman 3 which lookd like youtube crap e.g.)

SPOILERS, SPOILERS, SPOILERS:



I think he did really well in this one. A lot of recent films have more "cerebral" villains (Loki in the Avengers, Silva in Skyfall) sitting in glass prisons, but I think Khanberbatch did enough to distinguish himself from the crowd. There will be those upset about the race-lifting, and I can see why. Benedict Cumberbatch playing a character known as "Khan Noonien Singh"? Still, didn't bother me all that much. Peter Weller was also a delicious secondary

I actually didn't see any spoiler, since I don't know anything about the universe. I have no idea what he was mad about. However, IMDb spoiled it for me. They have a name other than John Harrison beside his name in the casting. So yay.

"we are in for a Heath Ledger caliber villain."

You get a gigantic thumbs down for saying that. Also, that clip in no way came close to any of Ledger's scenes.

This film is AWESOME!!!!!!!

That's all I need to say, saw it last night and it's a great action film, far better than the first with plenty of nods to the original series.
Don't waste your time with the 3D version though.

I am frigging pumped for this movie! I mean, look at that clip. I don't have a clue what's going on, but I was friggen engaged for that full minute.
Regardless of the true identity and changes to canon, Benedict Cumberbatch is going down in history as a true Star Trek villain...I Can't Wait!

That was so intense. Cumberbach is one of my favorite actors. After Sherlock Homes he can do whatever he wants. Just shut up and take my money.
