Two new videos from the set of Star Trek Beyond have been released, allowing fans a peek at a more battleworn Enterprise as well as offering a few details about the upcoming movie.
Entertainment Tonight was allowed access on the set of the highly anticipated Star Trek movie starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and John Cho as well as new cast members Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella and Joe Taslim. Helmed by Fast & Furious 6 director Justin Lin, the third movie in the rebooted movie franchise was co-written by star Simon Pegg and Doug Jung.
Featuring interviews with various cast members, the videos beam us up on a tour of a slightly aged Enterprise, including a look at the bridge of the famous starship, now that the crew is two years into the mission, as well as a new weapons bay (and new weapons!). The movie will also feature more retro-looking uniforms, in a nostalgic nod to Star Trek: The Original Series for the show’s 50th anniversary this year.
Also of note: Sulu has a daughter (Star Trek fans will be aware that Sulu has a daughter named Demora in the original timeline), and the cast were each given copies of screenplay with specific individual spelling mistakes so in case of a leak they could trace the script back to the person it belonged to. Works as well as the Marvel snipers, I guess.
Star Trek Beyond will warp into movie theaters on July 22.
