Ever since news hit that the first nine minutes of J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek Into Darkness" was going to premiere with IMAX showings of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", it gave us yet another reason to be excited for Peter Jackson's return to middle earth.
We saw the first teaser trailer which satisfied our hunger for now until the big reveal and caught a glimpse of Alice Eve's ("She's Out of My League") character in the film. We just learned that Eve will be playing Carol Marcus. Marcus was a Federation Scientist whose work led to the top-secret "Project Genesis". She had a relationship with James T. Kirk and became a mother to his son David. She ended up raising the child alone as the duo felt it was the best course of action.
We aren't sure at this time how large of a role Marcus will have in this new installment and if they will follow the story verbatim. We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
"Star Trek Into Darkness" comes to AMC Theatres on May 17th 2013.
