In the Latest Trailer for Star Trek Beyond, Fear of Death is What Will Keep Everyone Alive

The latest trailer for Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond debuted at tonight’s fan event in Los Angeles, and it showed off a retrospective Kirk as his ship is shot out from under him.


The trailer teases Idris Elba’s villain Krall, and shows off the presumed destruction of the Enterprise. Kirk seems to be facing some second thoughts about his lot in life, with a voiceover from Shohreh Aghdashloo cautioning that it’s easy for someone to get lost out in the depths of space: there’s only the ship and crew for a captain to count on.

Here’s the trailer:

The rollout for publicity for the latest Star Trek film has been minimal so far this year, and this event looked to jumpstart that process with the release of a behind the scenes documentary, as well as the announcement that director Justin Lin was finishing up the final edits, and that the film would premiere at a special San Diego Comic Con outdoor IMAX event on July 20th.

Star Trek Beyond opens in theaters on July 22.

Andrew Liptak is the former Weekend editor of io9/Gizmodo. He is the co-editor of War Stories: New Military Science Fiction and hails from Vermont.


Mortal Dictata

That sound you hear is the cry of millions of Star Trek fans screaming out in anguish as their franchise gets turned into yet another space shooty-shooty bang-bang CG mess.
