Hey Trekkies! In case you got stuck in the wrong galaxy… Director Justin Lin and Co. recently dropped the second trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the thirteenth film in the long-running sci-fi film franchise and the third installment in the reboot series after Star Trek Into Darkness (2013). The movie, which is set to hit theaters this summer, finds the crew of the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, are attacked by a seemingly unstoppable wave of unknown aliens forcing them to abandon ship. Stranded on an unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, the crew find themselves in conflict with a new ruthless enemy who has a hatred of the Federation and what it stands for.
Take a look:
A Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions film, Star Trek Beyond will feature the return of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and John Cho along with Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella and Joe Taslim joining them.
Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22, after an exclusive IMAX premiere at San Diego Comic-Con. What did you think of the trailer? Do you think film director Justin Lin, who is known for his groundbreaking work on the Fast & Furious franchise, will show that there’s more to him than epic car chases? I’d love to read your comments.
