Star Trek Beyond Chris Pine Captain Kirk

With ‘Star Trek Beyond’ premiering in theaters just a few weeks away, Paramount has released the third and final trailer for the film. While most of the footage seem to be ones that we’ve seen from previous trailers, this one gets a little help with Rhianna’s new single ‘Sledgehammer.

The trailer is filled with explosion and action which seem to be what you would expect considering director Justin Lin’s past work with the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise. But don’t think the film will be all action and no substance. According to Chris Pine, ‘Star Trek Beyond’ will still be posing questions which are reminiscent to ones seen in the franchise’s various TV series:

“The question that our movie poses is ‘Does the Federation mean anything? And in a world where everybody’s trying to kill one another all of the time, that’s an important thing. Is working together important? Should we all go our separate ways? Does being united against something mean anything?”

‘Star Trek Beyond’ time jumps to a few years into their 5 year mission that started the franchise 50 years ago. With the Enterprise under attack, the crew must abort and they find themselves separated and stranded on a hostile planet. Here, they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

The film was written by Doug Jung and dire hard Trekkie Simon Pegg (who plays Scotty in the film), so I would expect to see a few nods and Easter eggs in the film. Also returning to the starship is Karl Urban as Dr. Leonard McCoy, Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura , John Cho as Hikaru Sulu, Zachary Quinto as Spock, and the late Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov. Joining the cast members are Sofia Boutella as Jaylah and Idris Elba as the villainous Krall.
