App Delivers 2 New Star Trek Into Darkness Images
Today the Star Trek App had two new missions to scan the two Entertainment Weekly covers and as a reward delivered two new exclusive images. Check them out below.
Note: It appears that not all apps have been updated with the "Find the EW Cover" missions, but Paramount tells TrekMovie all apps should be updated by the end of the day.

EW Magazine Cover Description Makes Big News
Yesterday TrekMovie reported on kerfuffle that erupted over the online description of one of the two Entertainment Weekly collectible covers. The "Khan" description that appeared (then dissapeared) from the EW site made big news across the web. In addition to the usual geek sites, the "Did EW Spoil Star Trek?" news even made it to mainstream and gossip sites Yahoo Movies, Atlantic Magazine and PerezHilton.
However, as TrekMovie reported, the actual copy from the article notes that discussion of Khan is just a rumor. And the actual issues came out today and as you can see below Cumberbatch’s character is described as "John Harrison." So it does appear that the the errant description was isolated to the EW Backorder store…not exactly the place where Paramount or EW would be breaking news.
