The first trailer from the highly anticipated third movie from the Star Trek reboot franchise has been released, and it is entitled Star Trek: Beyond
Star Trek: Beyond is written by Doug Jung and one of the stars of the franchise Simon Pegg (who plays Lieutenant Commander Montgomery “Scotty” Scott). It is also the first film in the franchise that J.J. Abrams will not be directing although he was one of the producers, he was busy writing and directing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Chris Pine and former InTallaght cover star Zachary Quinto return to reprise their roles of Captain James T. Kirk and Commander Spock.
The first two films in the franchise have been commercial successes and there have been reports that both Quinto and Pine have signed on to do a fourth film in the franchise, depending on the success of this one. That coupled with the news recently that there will be a new Star Trek TV series means Trekkies everywhere will have plenty to look forward to over the coming years.
The film is to be released on July 22nd 2016 which fans of the franchise will know that 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek franchise. Star Trek: Beyond will be released in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
