The Summer season is heating up, and while Captain America’s third installment is winning over film fans, a little known sci-fi property is warming up for its third at bat. That’s right, Justin Lin (of Fast & Furious fame) took the helm of the Enterprise (while J.J. Abrams was hard at work at an equally obscure science fiction property), and this looks great! Star Trek Into Darkness left many fans cold, so if this trailer is any indication of what Lin can bring to the table, then sign us up for Star Trek Beyond. Engage!
“Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In “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.
Directed by Justin Lin, and starring Chris Pine, Zachardy Qunito, Simon Pegg and more, Paramount Pictures has slated Star Trek Beyond for release this Summer on July 22, 2016.
