Benedict Cumberbatch looks properly menacing in "Star Trek Into Darkness" sneak peek

"Star Trek Into Darkness" offered Trekkies around the world a Presidents' Day treat on Monday, releasing a new picture of "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch in character as John Harrison via Twitter.

"You think your world is safe,” Cumberbatch intones in the sneak peek. “It is an illusion, a comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance.”
