Great news! The trailer for Star Trek Beyond was released by Paramount Pictures just over an hour ago on YouTube. The film is scheduled for release in July 2016 and will be the 13th film in the Star Trek franchise and the 3rd one since the franchise was rebooted in 2009.
Star Trek Beyond is the sequel to 2013’s Star Trek: Into Darkness and will re-unite the cast from previous two films. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin are all back and you can also expect performances by Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella, Joe Taslim and Lydia Wilson.
Star Trek Beyond is directed by Justin Lin (who has also directed 3 of the Fast & Furious movies) and produced by JJ Abrams, Bryan Burk and Roberto Orci. The film will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise. The plot is unknown at this time, but one can gather from the trailer that this is going to be tough situation for the crew of the Enterprise to get themselves out of. Check it out below if you don’t believe me.
This looks pretty damn amazing. Star Trek Beyond definitely has potential to be one of the best films of 2016. Let’s hope that it lives up to expectations.
