Why we're excited:
With overwhelmingly positive reviews and a global box-office take of over $380 million, J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" was one of the rare summer blockbusters that pleased both critics and fans alike. So there's every reason to hope he'll strike gold again with "Star Trek Into Darkness," by all accounts a bigger, bolder sequel boasting a mysterious central villain (played by "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch) who may or may not be Khan. The film's epic trailers are perhaps most indicative of why the film ranked higher on our list than any other sequel, as they demonstrate Abrams' expertise at revealing just enough to keep us interested while leaving us hungering for more.
