Tuesday night Star Trek Into Darkness finally premiered nationally! The film has been in international theaters since its world premiere in London on May 2nd. American fans of the series, which stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana, have been eagerly awaiting the release. 

Stars gathered at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, dressed to the nines for the premiere of the Science Fiction blockbuster.

The sequel to 2009's Star Trek will undoubtedly be one of the biggest hits of the year, especially since there has been so much speculation following the plot and the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as the film's mysterious antagonist. Director J.J. Abrams kept the character's identity a secret up until the film's release, building anticipation for the premiere.

Star Trek Into Darkness hits theaters nationally on Friday, May 17th.
