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