Paramount Pictures has just released a bold new trailer for Star Trek Beyond, which capitalises on the dangers that await the crew of the USS Enterprise.
After reaching Starbase Earhart on the edge of Federation space, the crew of the USS Enterprise is suddenly ambushed in a vicious attack, and left for dead. Stranded on an unknown alien planet and split up from one another, they find themselves combating a power hungry new villain who knows everything about them, and who will stop at nothing to destroy the Federation.
The trailer sure stirs plenty of emotions, especially in relation to James T. Kirk’s (Chris Pine) symbolic destiny to his father George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth), and their positions as Starfleet captains. It also introduces us to Idris Elba’s hulking new villain Krall, who has little regard for the concept of mercy, and is ready to take the Enterprise down. Director Justin Lin appears to have a handle on the frenzied action of Beyond, while also devoting significant time to character development as the crew of the Enterprise face this brand new threat.
Trek fans will be lining up for this epic third chapter when Star Trek Beyond makes its way into theatres in Australia and NZ on July 21 and in the US and UK on July 22.
