HOW DO you top one of the great science fiction adventure movies?

J.J. Abrams and everyone associated with “Star Trek Into Darkness” have epic expectations to meet after the 2009 “Star Trek,” which was one of the most spectacular movies ever made of its genre. Enough superlatives for you?

The cast, beginning with Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk), then Eric Bana (Nero, the bad ass villain), Karl Urban (Bones), Zachary Quinto (Spock), and Zoe Saldana (Ohura), and of course, Simon Pegg (Scotty) earned it.

I’m not a Trekkie, so I’ll enjoy it regardless. IMAX a must, star date May 15, 2013, before it goes nationwide on May 17.

Lucky Brits will get a chance to see the “Star Trek” sequel week earlier.
