One of the biggest movies of the season arrives in theaters this week when Star Trek Into Darkness hits screens nationwide. Will you be seeing it?

The second entry in director J.J. Abrams' reboot of the iconic franchise comes in the aftermath of his 2009 hit Star Trek, which introduced Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as the iconic characters Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. That movie reportedly earned more than $385 million worldwide.

According to a story from USA Today this week, Abrams "sets his phasers on fun" with Star Trek Into Darkness.
