Ever since we found out that J.J. Abrams was not going to be directing the third Star Trek film, we were eager to catch a glimpse of what that might mean. Thankfully, that wait is over. Paramount Pictures released the first trailer for the upcoming movie.
According to the very first Star Trek: Beyond trailer, the movie already looks to be action-packed. This is not surprising as the movie is being directed by Justin Lin, best known for the Fast & Furious franchise.
The trailer begins with the destruction of the USS Enterprise. This should be hard to watch for the die-hard Star Trek fans. From there it seems like the movie will focus around a war against an alien race. In just 90 seconds, we can already tell that this movie will have a lot of fun with itself and its lore.
For anyone worried that Lin won’t bring enough emotion to supplement the action, you should remember that recent movies in the Fast & Furious series have actually been quite dramatic and heart-wrenching at times. This is definitely a movie to keep on your radar for next summer.
Star Trek: Beyond releases in theaters July 22nd, 2016.
