The first official Star Trek Beyond trailer has finally been released online, and it's glorious.
Although it was originally slated to premiere in front of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Paramount has premiered the trailer in the wake of this morning’s leaks (there was a low-res German trailer floating around, and a few pics made it to Twitter over the weekend).
Directed by Justin Lin, with a script by cast member Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, Sofia Boutella and Idris Elba.
Featuring plenty of action scenes (and explosions!) sprinkled with the humor that is the staple of J.J. Abrams’ reboot of the beloved sci-fi franchise, the first trailer features a lot of Sofia Boutella’s mysterious alien, as well as what could be Idris Elba's Star Trek Big Bad. Check it out below, and let us know what you guys think of the trailer:
Star Trek Beyond will warp into movie theaters on July 22, 2016, in time for the show's 50th anniversary.
