A grim new international trailer for Star Trek Into the Darkness has the web buzzing.

The trailer is the longest yet and reveals more than ever about the plot of the upcoming Star Trek sequel, including one striking bit of exposition: Benedict Cumberbatch—famous for playing fictional Londoner Sherlock Holmes on BBC One—plays a villain who blows up London.

Star Trek Into Darkness arrives at UK cinemas on May 9th.
