WATCH: Action-packed 'Star Trek Beyond' trailer drops
MANILA, Philippines – Trekkies, it’s also your turn to share in the holiday cheer. The Star Trek Beyond trailer is out.
The new Star Trek film seems to be a high-octane romp with touches of sardonic humor, as the trailer blasts off with The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” as Commander Spock, Captain Kirk, and the rest of the USS Enterprise crew find themselves marooned on a planet surrounded by their enemies.
The Fast and the Furious regular Justin Lin is at the helm this time, taking over where director JJ Abrams left off in the rebooted franchise with Star Trek Into Darkness, and steering it to a new course.
“No ship. No crew. How are we gonna get out of this world?” asks Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), lamenting their predicament. “We will find hope in the impossible,” Spock (Zachary Quinto) answers, as the trailer showcases some breathtaking snippets true to the familiar style of director Lin: fast and furious, plus some thrills on wheels to boot.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, and Simon Pegg are set to return in the reboot’s third installment, with the likes of acclaimed actor Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella as an unidentified alien joining the fray.
Star Trek Beyond hits Philippine screens in July 2016, just in time for the sci-fi title’s 50th year since it debuted on television in 1966. – Rappler.com
