(USA TODAY) Benedict Cumberbatch is not pleased in the new international Star Trek Into Darkness trailer.

Actually, it's his character John Harrison who makes his malevolent presence felt to the crew of the Enterprise - and Earth in general - in new scenes from the upcoming sci-fi sequel, in IMAX theaters May 15 and on conventional screens two days later.

Harrison warns everybody he's coming in a voiceover - "You think your world is safe" means the dude means business - and after future London is attacked, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of director J.J. Abrams' returning heroes scramble to take care of Harrison, a Federation agent who blames his bosses for seemingly "a crime I cannot forgive."

The trailer also features a variety of other scenes to get Trekkies drooling, including Kirk flying through the skies, a somewhat intimate scene between Pine and Alice Eve in her underwear, the Enterprise creating a massive splash when crashing into the water, and one of the coolest lines since the old days of Trek villain Khan when Harrison says, "I will walk over your cold corpses."
