Alice Eve to read Star Trek Into Darkness audiobook, and other Into Darkness bits.

StarTrek.com have announced Alice Eve, who plays Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness, will be reading the audiobook version of Alan Dean Foster's Star Trek Into Darkness novelization. The recording will apparently play for eight and a half hours, released as a seven CD set, or download.

In other Into Darkness news, Paramount have released a new TV advert for the film. In fact they have released two, one each in the US and UK, however the UK version is merely a re-edit of previously seen footage. The US version on the other hand has one new scene, with John Harrison announcing his plans for vengeance:

Scans from Empire Magazine's feature on Into Darkness are now popping up online too, including this interesting shot of J.J. Abrams on the dark bridge that we've seen little sections of in the trailers. This is the first wider view we've had:

I get the impression Harrison is commanding this ship. Maybe the same ship we see Kirk and companion space jump to, and/or the same ship we've seen a warp speed explosion on, and/or the same ship we've seen crashing! The different uniforms of the characters in the background also match those of the bad guys in the Kre-O USS Enterprise set.

You can see more images from the Empire article on TrekMovie.

Finally Entertainment Earth have now added listings for three high-end uniform replicas from Into Darkness, made by Anovos, using the same fabric suppliers as the actual film used uniforms. Currently listed are Captain Kirk, Commander Spock, Lieutenant Commander Scott tunics. These are presumably more or less the same as the previous nuTrek uniforms Anovos released based on the previous film. Last time they also offered female uniforms, so hopefully those will follow this time too.
