New ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Trailer Smashes the Enterprise

Paramount Pictures has released a big new trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the rebooted cinematic franchise kicked off by J.J. Abrams.

The crew of the Enterprise have been on a bit of a break, and they’re about to wish they stayed on land. The Enterprise is in the midst of a five-year mission when they’re brought down on a new planet and a new villain, Krull (Idris Elba), comes to the forefront.

The new trailer offers up quite a lot of new footage from the picture, giving us a much better look at the film compared to what was delivered in that first trailer, which even Simon Pegg wasn’t a fan of. It remains to be seen if Justin Lin, who took the Fast & Furious franchise to a wild new tone with his direction on films 4, 5 and 6, can continue this franchise in strong fashion. At least from the trailer below, things are looking promising.

Star Trek Beyond, starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Idris Elba, Karl Urban and Sofia Boutella, will hit Australian cinemas on July 21 and U.S. cinemas on July 22.

Synopsis for Star Trek Beyond:

“Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next instalment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In “Beyond,” the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

  • As a Star Trek who grew up with the original I am indeed a fan of the highest loyalist brigade but after the last two exciting films by J.J. this one by Lin seems looks and feels tremendously underwhelming….”
