Paramount Pictures have granted us an EXCLUSIVE clip from the forthcoming blockbuster Star Trek Into Darkness.

The exclusive clip is a profile on the Enterprise’s Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott, aka “Scotty”, as portrayed by Simon Pegg. The video contains plenty of teasing footage from Star Trek Into Darkness and contains plenty of sound clips from Pegg about how he approached the character in this sequel.

Opening in UK and Irish cinemas and IMAX theatres on May 9th, Star Trek Into Darkness stars Chris Pine (Captain Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Karl Urban (Bones), John Cho (Sulu), Anton Yelchin (Chekov) and Bruce Greenwood (Christopher Pike).

For the sequel, new cast members include Benedict Cumberbatch (as the mysterious villain John Harrison), Alice Eve (Carol Marcus) and Robocop himself, Peter Weller.

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

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.

Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Trek Into Darkness comes from a screenplay by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof.
