We’re less than a month away from the release of Star Trek Beyond, and Paramount Pictures have now released the final trailer which is set to the pulsing beat of Rihanna’s featured track ‘Sledgehammer’.
The new trailer plays off of the theme of Captain James T. Kirk’s (Chris Pine) destiny, and the implications of following into Star Trek because of his father George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth). It also features some amazing new imagery, as well as the presence of Idris Elba’s malevolent alien warlord Krall.
The new trailer is especially poignant given the sad passing of Anton Yelchin, who portrayed Ensign Pavel Chekov. Many of the film’s cast and crew have already released memorials for the talented young actor, and we’re certain that the film’s premiere at this year’s San Diego Comic Con will draw a special remembrance for the late actor.
Star Trek Beyond will be an exciting new chapter in this phenomenal saga and will open in theatres on July 21 in New Zealand and Australia and July 22 in the US and UK.
