  • Print

LONDON -- Benedict Cumberbatch has had a busy 24 hours.

The British actor was nominated for a Golden Globe for Sherlock and unveiled the first nine minutes of the new Star Trek movie at a special presentation Friday in London.

Cumberbatch's character John Harrison was introduced in the much-anticipated sci-fi sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness.

Cumberbatch was not allowed to reveal much about the plot, but the 36-year-old did admit that he auditioned for the role of Harrison -- who he describes as "a phenomenal one-man weapon of mass destruction" -- on an iPhone in his friend's kitchen.

Fans wanting to see the footage can catch it in front of selected IMAX 3D screenings worldwide of The Hobbit.

Star Trek Into Darkness, directed by J.J. Abrams, opens next May.
