Final STARK TREK BEYOND trailer blends the old with the new!
Star Trek Beyond is showing fans the beauty, desperation, and all-out chaos as Starfleet faces an unsure future and a startling new enemy in its final trailer!
Featuring the new Rihanna single “Sledgehammer” (for which the record art features the singer made up similarly to Trek‘s new alien character, Jaylah,) the final Star Trek Beyond trailer nods back to the original reboot film as Captain Kirk compares his journey in Starfleet to his father’s. But James T. Kirk’s final journey on the Enterprise won’t be an easy one when the ship and its crew are directly targeted by a wrathful group of aliens after getting stranded on their planet.
Though not as divisive as the first trailer, Star Trek Beyond is still certainly trying to break from the series’ brainy tradition and gain a little pop culture credence, leaving diehard fans with lots of mixed feelings. Still, there’s hope for a bright, adventurous story underneath the action movie exterior. This trailer seems to take itself a lot more seriously, after all!
Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22, 2016.
In Star Trek Beyond, the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
