Paramount has released the second full trailer for Star Trek Beyond and it looks very promising. The third film of the series, directed by Justin Lin (Fast and Furious) is more of a soft reboot for the series. The original teaser, which was released back in December, was not as well-received by fans as hoped but this trailer is filled with action-packed fun.
Stranded on a hostile planet, Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the Enterprise crew face an alien threat.”
The trailer starts off centered around Captain Kirk as he reflects on his reasoning for joining the fleet and stepping into the footsteps of his father. We also get several shops of the Enterprise getting ripped apart as our heroes are stranded on a unfamiliar planet. We also get our first glimpse of Idris Elba who is playing the terrifying villain in this film. He looks completely unrecognizable, by the way.
Chris Pine (Kirk), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Simon Pegg (Scotty), Karl Urban (Bones), John Cho (Sulu) all reprise their role in the film. The crew is also accompanied by a new character, Jaylah, played by Sofia Boutella.
Star Trek hits theaters July 22nd.
