I just got goosebumps watching this. Benedict Cumberbatch’s speech over some great visuals just makes me so excited.

Is that the Enterprise crashing into San Francisco bay? What is making Alice Eve scream? Is she playing Elizabeth Dehner (check out the image below)? Is Benedict playing Khan, Gary Mitchell or someone else?

Oh this is going to be good. Does it need more lens flare?
