Star Trek Beyond Trailer

"We will find hope in the impossible…" Paramount has debuted the first trailer for Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond, the next Star Trek movie in the series restarted in 2009 by J.J. Abrams. This trailer has quite an interesting vibe, much more energetic and funky, with tons of wacky aliens and lots of weird action. I'm not sure I like where this is headed? The full cast includes all the returning Enterprise crew members: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin. Plus Joe Taslim, Sofia Boutella, and Idris Elba. I really don't like the music, but then again, they are playing this trailer in front of Star Wars and have to compete directly with that movie. I'm not that excited. You?

Here's the first official trailer for Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond, direct from Paramount's YouTube:

A continuation of the intergalactic voyages of the Starship Enterprise, with a crew featuring Captain James T. Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Scotty, Bones, Chekov and Sulu. Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Joe Taslim, Sofia Boutella, and Idris Elba. Star Trek Beyond is being directed by filmmaker Justin Lin (Annapolis, Tokyo Drift, Fast & Furious 4, Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6), from a screenplay written by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. Paramount will release Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the new Star Trek series started in 2009, starting on July 8th, 2016.

    The music ruined it.
    • capitandelespacio
      I think this song or something like that was used in 2009 for the first movie. Is not that annoying, though.
      • Dominic
        and its probably cheaper to use it again , rather than pay a new rights fee
        • capitandelespacio
          I think it's just a call back, like really trying to get this thing to be a thing. I'm ok with it.
    • TheOct8pus
      That's an homage to William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, who was unable to pronounce the word "sabotage" properly....
    • the same song was playing while Kirk was kid in the first one who stole his stepdad's car and went joy riding before letting it go over a cliff.
      • Alex Hayden
        that doesn't excuse it to be used in a trailer representing the whole movie.
  • capitandelespacio
    This was EXACTLY what Geene Roddenberry had in mind when he created the TV series 500 years ago.
    • TheOct8pus
      Especially the voluptuous alien girls...
      • capitandelespacio
        Everything in Star Trek was meant to be punk-hardcore-eviscerating violence and over the top action. I'm in.
        • TheOct8pus
          Don't forget quips....
          • capitandelespacio
            "Well, that's just tipical..." classic Bones.
          • TheOct8pus
            Let's never do that again....
        • DAVIDPD
          Yes! Agreed.
      • TheOct8pus
        ...and motocross
        • capitandelespacio
          The Warp Engine has NOS now.
      • Snev De la Fontaine
        Actually, Star Trek (at least TOS) has never shied away from voluptuousness. But other than that, yes.
        • capitandelespacio
          Agreed 100%. The "sexy" element was present in the original series and so on. Starting with William Shatner himself.
  • Tester
    I have to agree, I am not getting a good vibe from this at all. Barely looked like a Star Trek movie
    • Have Hope
      disgraceful
  • desispeed
    not sure what to think of it yet.... hopefully Pegg cooked up something original story wise
  • capitandelespacio
    I'm hoping Vin Diesel has a cameo in this one.
  • capitandelespacio
    Any Star Trek fans here? What's the explanation for this universe in which every alien race speaks a common language?
    • I'm not a super fan, but from what I've been told, there is a 'universal translator' device built into their comm badges, which translates every known alien language to English in real time.
      • capitandelespacio
        Groovy, thanks. It's like the ring in the Green Lantern universe.
      • borninatrailer
        Just don't pay attention to the lips that still sync with the English translation.
      • Higgens
        The translator did not exist in Kirks time, it was retconned to exist on the NX-1, but that still required a human to help with translations. In the ToS Uhura was the translator.
        • capitandelespacio
          *Coughs* Nerd...
          • Higgens
            Truths.
          • capitandelespacio
            And proud!
          • Dominic
            still that doesnlt mean that for THIS MOVIE , they havent scripted that it IS invented , and working thru comm badge ... ..and it's easier for the viewer , than subtitles
      • Alex Hayden
        keyword would be "known" in reference to this movie, which treks "beyond".
    • TheOct8pus
      babel fish
    • universal translator
    • Higgens
      There isnt one in the reboots. In the time this takes place the universal translator had not yet been invented. If you remember from ToS Uhura functioned as translator. No, its just another one of those dumb things they decided to over look in favor of the dumbed down Star Trek.
      • capitandelespacio
        They could go with the "Federation common language" instead. But here it seems they've reached the final frontier and they are pretty far from home.
        • Higgens
          Yeh, I doubt those folk are speaking English lol.
          • Dominic
            the "woman in grey and black stripes " only speaks English to Kirk .... like you would EXPECT a civilized person who knows several languages to do . Of any race ... really , you all are ASSuming way too much , and wayy too negatively
          • Higgens
            This is in the midst of their 5 year mission, into deep space, away from Federation territory. How is it people learned English with out any interaction with the federation? Thats not an assumption, its the part of the plot of this movie. The 5 year mission has begun. There is a o so slim chance this is covered in the movie. more likely it wont be, and they will just speak English and thats that. Yes I am VERY negative. They have ruined a franchise in an effort to revitalize it. I dont care if the movie does well, I dont care if people who never watched Star Trek like it. They have dumbed down what was one of the smartest shows to the point of space action. This isnt SciFi. Nor has it been since the reboots started. They are fun enough movies, but they are not Trek.
          • Dominic
            You're being hysterical , Higgs Why ? A) Original Trek did THE SAME THING ... Or have u forgotten the Romulus in " Balance of Terror " speaking English among themselves , and to Kirk ... B) if they DON'T speak English How are WE going to be entertained? ?as some will miss spoken lines in subtitles .. C) TNG did this too , as the rock creatures that killed Yar spoke it perfectly , Also Voyager , MUCH further out than this Enterprise now ... Get the point ? Ur being silly , and wrong
          • Higgens
            Romulans had contact with the Federation, and learned the language. T The creature you speak of was very old and powerful, he could of 1. learned English some time in the past 2. Gained that knowledge when he contacted Troi 3. Been translated for by the Universal Translator. As for Voyager, they all had universal translators. So there you have it. I may be silly, but I am not wrong, I am a huge Star Trek nerd. They obviously need to speak English for the audience to connect. My point is it will likely not be covered in the movie as to WHY they can. It will just be a thing they can do, if they cover it in a line of dialogue, cool. "we have never met these guys before but a ship crashed out here and they learned about us from that" sort of thing. Even that would make little sense as the 5 year mission was to go out into unexplored space. But I would accept it. Star Trek has always been smart. Instead of just having aliens speak English they invented a piece of tech that explained WHY they all spoke English, even have some episodes where the tech fails as part of the plot. You are just being rude, so I am done responding to you. I love to discuss these thing but not with combative people who want to demean instead of converse.
          • Dominic
            NOT BEFORE The Enterprise encountered them , in episode 11 of the 1st season . Also that creature would have no reason TO learn Federation Standard , since they had never come in contact with them before . Go back and watch that episode ...you're grasping at straws for this point .. ;?)) I'm " laughing at the superior intellect " ( u should know that phrase ) of calling ME rude , when all you are doing here IS being rude to Lin and his movie . Without Cause , as I just showed you . Since " FAF " made MUCH more money than either of these ST Reboots , I think You should bow to Lin's apparent superior intellect , in bringing FAF's style to the ST Franchise
          • Dominic
            Maybe Kirk 's. Hair , is the best criticism of this TRAILER that one could have .... P.S. you should have brought up Deep Space Nine , who didn't have translators . It makes sense that an inter-global space station than all would learn the dominant language , tho
          • Dominic
            IDRemember anything in Voyager , about subcutaneous translators in crewmembers . REMEMBER this wasn't a planned " voyage " to a universe where No One should know English
          • Higgens
            Cant tell if you are trolling at this point. Romulans were aware of Humans and the Federation WELL before Kirk and the Enterprise made their fist contact. Look into it. Armus (the sludge monster) He didn't have to learn it as I said and you either cant read or didn't read, could have absorbed it from Troi or the Universal Translator could have done that work. You are just FLAT OUT WRONG. I mean if you are going to act like you know what you are talking about, maybe you should actually know what you are talking about. As for the rest of your nonsense, I have no issue with Lin as a director, I think is style is not suited to Trek.
  • ari smulders
    It's Star Trek and with Justin Lin so i am in! It's my favorite tv franchise besides the walking dead, so on my to see list besides Independence Day... If the score at imbd is 4 i stay at home ofcourse!
  • Have Hope
    Remind me again....is this star trek or something else?
    • capitandelespacio
      Fast Trek*
      • Have Hope
        Thanks...I knew it was something different
      • Cyberdine
        Star Furious?
  • I thought the Beastie Boys wouldn't licence their tunes for ads?
    • TheOct8pus
      They only license to ill....
      • Dominic
        and with a member gone , maybe the other two need to make money for his family and themselves
    • cuckoozey
      Yeah right? I can't imagine MCA would be too pleased with this...
  • Godzilla
    So um... I want JJ back please.... Lens flares and all... And I had such high hopes... Independence Day 2 looks better IMHO.
    • ColtNoir
      JJ was not doing justice to the franchise, but neither is this guy.
      • Godzilla
        Agreed, but it's certainly better than this drivel...
  • jay
    Galaxy Quest meets Guardians of the Galaxy? I'll pay for it.
    • theslayer5150
      So would I if it weren't marketed as a Star Trek film
  • That female alien sounds exactly like Abbi from Survivor.
    • lol wow
    • Gaser
      totally!
    • Higgens
      AHHH not that crazy bitch.
  • cg
    I'm sorry but this looks horrible. I was never into Star Trek as a kid, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Abrahms "reboots." (Minus a few lens flares) This on the other hand, feels detached from the "universe" that Abrahms established in the first two films and more along the lines of something I might watch on the Disney Channel.
  • theslayer5150
    I wasn't thrilled with the rebooting of the franchise originally, but I was pleasantly surprised by the first one, and the second one was decent. It was tough to transition to this new, generation-z style story telling from the original TV show and movies I grew up with, but I thought it was done fairly well. This "Beyond" looks like Fast and Furious in space. If you remember, when it was announced that Lin was to be the director, I made a post about Kirk jumping from the hood of the Enterprise onto a power sliding Klingon ship just before it flipped end over end 52 times in a ball of nitro flames (or something to that effect, I can't remember my entire comment). I was joking around then. But apparently I was correct. This looks to be quite a mess.
    • capitandelespacio
      Wait, the second one was decent? I think, honestly, Into Darkness is the most horrifying thing that happened to Star Trek. It's basically the 2009 movie all over again but now with more references and a "plot" massacre: The magical blood that can actually cure death (?!?!?!). 2009 was fine, I think this one will be on the same level.
      • theslayer5150
        Touche' While I get Khan's genetically enhanced blood might cure the little girl, I thought the movie as a remake of Wrath of Khan was...well, decent. Not brilliant by any means, but not a disaster. This next chapter looks sloppy.
        • capitandelespacio
          There was no point whatsoever to call him "Khan", just for the sake of the reference. And the "skype" to Spock so he can hint us about this dude was the "oh-my-gawd" moment.
  • Justin Lin is the damon lindelof of directors. Im no ST fan but this trailer literally made me wanna punch someone. Terrible. Top that with how terrible Into Darkness was, looks like this reboot and on the way downhill.
    • ari
      wats your beef w damon? he's been involved in creating some of the best tv ever and helped produced countless great movies...I mean if you hate LOST and the leftovers then understandable...
      • Dude are you serious? LOST ending? Into Darkness? Prometheus? Whatever that dude touches turns into shit. BTW: he couldn't handle the critic and quit his Twitter like a crying little girl.
        • ari
          What?!? Ur crazy, ok I know everyone hates on the LOST ending however lost wasn't about the storyline its about the characters and I don't think I have ever seen a show that built better character back stories for people you actually care about. Umm Prometheus was pretty awesome actually. Into darkness was good not great but what in your opinion is awesome? Are you saying JJ isn't awesome also? Idk i think if anything he's a rare breed that brings stories that are not typical and is unexpected but hey thats just my opinion. Have you seen the leftovers? Yea its good and bad but it's pretty riveting and different than anything you seen before and thats what he does...the unexpected.
    • Dotpols
      I gotta say as a non star trek fan I quite enjoyed Into Darkness... So did most other people from what I can gather from its average review score and box office takings. No arguments on Prometheus though
  • looks like an insult to everything Star Trek. I can honestly say I won't see this based on this introduction alone. vapid & useless
    • capitandelespacio
      You'll download the BDrip version of this, 4 weeks after realease.
      • fair assumption. but my "to watch" list on Netflix has me busy
  • borninatrailer
    So this looks like a giant, steaming crock pot of shit.
  • Cyberdine
    Agh! I knew it! Lin turned this into a F&F meets Star Trek garbage. Just looks silly. What a shame.
    • Well JJ is the producer. He has power. FF is movie garbage but you know the slurpee sipping masses love this crap. Visual noise. Theres no substance.
      • Cyberdine
        Yup. Just terrible.
  • The entire movie may not be like this but man have they pissed off Trekkies with this very first trailer!
  • CShane
    Completely agree on the music selection, what a poor choice. Based on this trailer, I'll catch it on redbox.
    • Dominic
      LO what IS WITH ths hate for the Beastie Boys ??? maybe ur the middle aged ST fan , just too old to appreciate them .. everybody wh hates it
  • Alpivan
    Now that's how you make a trailler!
  • dan
    I went into this thinking I'd hate it; but, it looks like a fun watch.
  • Higgens
    Well, I can hope its better than it looks. Bad costume choices, bad dialog and a continued abandonment of what Star Trek is. How very disappointing.
    • Yeah whats up with everyones hair?? Kirk looks like hes doing a combover? lol
      • Higgens
        The picture at the top looks so goofy, you'd be forgiving for thinking it was like a joke scene from SNL.
  • Mark Sheridan
    I read the comments first, thinking it can't be that bad. It is.
  • Snev De la Fontaine
    I'm someone who loved the first Star Trek film as well as TOS and TNG (though I saw them after I saw the first reboot). I know this new one probably isn't that different from the previous instalments, but I have to ask: Is it just me, or does this look way worse nonetheless?
  • David Diaz
    So much negativity here. LOL. I enjoyed it. Looks like fun.
    • Yes, FS houses mostly movie snobs. You should know that by know. I cannot see how anyone would think that this looks like fun but im glad someone does. 😉
      • capitandelespacio
        Don't forget trolls. Lots and lots of trolls 😉
        • hehe :)
          • Dominic
            yes , preconceived notions ruin these types of movies for many . Gotta go in like u DON'T remember what happened in the previous ones . Let a movie standalone to impress you . Compare it later ...
      • David Diaz
        I guess in general I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to entertainment. Although I can definitely differentiate what is just popcorn fare and what is truly exceptional. I also try to let go of any preconceived notions I might have of what I think a film should be like, especially when it comes remakes, sequels, or any film based off of other source material. So more often than not I walk out of the theater having had fun and I like it that way.
    • Higgens
      This trailer had more explosions than like the entire run of Next Gen. Its Star Trek in branding only, it has lost what makes it Trek. Understandably Trek fans like myself are upset by it.
      • David Diaz
        Every new Trek crew felt a bit different and changed with the time. I watched the originals as a kid and grew up watching TNG and all the films. Only watched DS9, and Voyager here and there though and never saw Enterprise. But each one had a crew in space facing different enemies and having adventures. These new films go along the same lines so it feels like Star Trek to me, just with more explosions (why's that bad?), and better fight choreography. Just curious, what would these need to make it Trek to you?
        • theslayer5150
          I guess Star Trek, to me anyway, was more about being cerebral and story telling with cool futuristic tech, and about dealing with ones humanity in the greater universe, with some suspense and thrills shaken in. This movie (based on the trailer, so I understand it's not a finished product) looks like an action wet dream, without much to say, and certainly not about story. Sure, the tech and special effects will make it look fantastic visually, but I'm just not feeling it. As someone said, it's like Galaxy Quest married Guardians of the Galaxy. And that alone would probably be a cool, run of the mill, popcorn sci-fi action flick, but not really worthy of being a Star Trek film. Of course, it's just the opinion of a middle aged old school Trek fan.
          • Dominic
            Can we give the plot A CHANCE to impress Us ?? or are we going to bury a film before we even know what the story is about ? .. it SEEMS this is some new aliens and their tech that completely destroys the Enterprise ( one big ship can't defend agaisnt a swarm of thousands ..) yet they save the crew for some reason . So ur "relevant social commentary ", Higgins , is to come from whatever reason they saved the crew . And we'll see out human condition thru those alien eyes u can't " feel " a movie ,slayer , from a 1 min 23 sec soundbite . Again , like XMen trailer , you KNOW about three more trailers are coming ; judge it after them
          • theslayer5150
            While I can agree with and understand what you are saying, what is a movie trailer? It is a sales tool to sell someone on buying a movie ticket to see it. If they are marketing to a younger, short attention span crowd then success, if they are marketing to an older one where I fall into, then I'm sorry I am not "feeling" this one based on the vibe they are trying send me. I am sure there will be another trailer that will hopefully give me something to "feel". If not, then I simply will wait for it on HBO.
          • David Diaz
            I understand where you are coming from, but I don't think we can tell if there is any relevant social commentary from that trailer. We'll have to wait and see. Hopefully the story and characters are deeper than the trailer shows.
          • Higgens
            I think we can assume based on script rewrites(previous versions being too "treky"), the director, and the previous entrys, this will be story light and action heavy.
          • Higgens
            Yeh new aliens, from where? I mean, What are they, Why in all the years of Star Trek have we never met them? They are going to have to be from a new dimension of some shit, because those aliens have never existed in previous canon.
        • Higgens
          Relevant social commentary, a look into the human condition. Star Trek is/was SciFi of the highest order, not brainless space action like the reboots have been.
          • TK
            Next Gen brought this about but the original was no where near as complex. Like David said every new outing has been different. I was a fan of the original crew. I loved what they did with Next Gen and I have liked these movies. In fact these movies have saved the franchise really because it was dying off to be honest. It's Star Trek for younger fans. There will always be the old ones to watch if you don't enjoy these.
          • Higgens
            I am not going to go into a dissertation on this but ToS was RIPE with social commentary.
          • TK
            Yes definitely but Next Gen took it to another level. I thought Into Darkness was subtle but you could see bits and pieces here and there. Like a terrorist who was created to fix one problem coming back to bite you in the ass. Seems familiar to today in someways.
  • Xerxexx
    Oh hell yeah, I'm definitely in.
  • capitandelespacio
    Can someone please re edit this with "Highway To Hell" as soundtrack?
  • CDR
    Written by Simon Pegg... I have some trust in that.
  • davidshaw
    its the music from the first movie, when young Kirk stole the car, that's why they used it
  • DAVIDPD
    Yeah. This does not really look "amazing", but it definitely looks different from what JJ was doing. I am personally excited to see what Justin Lin can do with this franchise.
  • shiboleth
    This is, I don't know, weird. Of course, pure deviation from the older Trek style. I'm not sure if that's going to work... +
  • Gary Green
    Straight to VHS.
    • capitandelespacio
      Wow, hipster alert! (Joking, ofc)
    • No man, Super 8!!
  • Alex Hayden
    So far, this Trekkie is not impressed. Not saying NO, yet. just... not onboard. Music was definitely bad, but I have a feeling watching it muted or with a different song wouldn't make it much better.
    • Dominic
      what's wrong with The Beastie Boys ? that is one of their hits
      • Cyberdine
        If people dont like Sabotage from Beastie Boys, thats a problem within itself. Dont blame the song for the shitty trailer and possible hatchet job of a movie.
  • Charles Knowlton
    The music just killed the trailer right from the start. Been there, done that, a bad idea.
    • CommonSense033
      Why would rebellious sorts in the future listen to music from centuries ago? Would a rebellious sort today listen to Mozart?
  • Lar Rackell
    This looks unapologetic and that's why I'm way behind it. And Simon Pegg did writing so.... I mean, at any rate, it already looks better than the experience that was Into Darkness. (gag)
  • RAW_D
    Oh weird, it looks like the Fast & Furious in space under the guise of a Star Trek movie. And the music initially worked, but then you've got actual shots of peril and people dying towards the end....and that's when Sabotage no longer belongs. Poor first impression. Could be fun, could be mindless sci-fi schlock that will be forgettable. Btw, huge fan of Abrams Star Trek. And B. Cumberbatch was the best thing about Into Darkness...
  • Nash
    This one has no Cumberbatch...
  • capitandelespacio
    You are such a weirdo. I like you.
    • TheOct8pus
      Thanks, Space Captain. I like you too. We seem to share many opinions... (Morgan Freeman voice) And thus a great friendship was born...
  • Matthew
    Looks better than X-Men though -_-
  • LightningB
    I've been a fan and defender of the first 2 (yes even Into Darkness) but not thrilled with that trailer. That was before I remembered Lin was directing. I know this is minority speaking but I think the FastFurious movies are same of the most overrated flicks ever made. They are passable brainlessactionjunkie flicks, but a billion dollars worth of that? Not even close. Far too dumb to earn that much. But then again, they're much better than every stupid Transformers film and the suckers keep falling into theaters for those piles of dung. Yes I know I will be seeing this but hears hoping Lin keeps focus on characters and not over-focusing on stunts that aren't as cool as they are trying to make them.
    • Mr. Guymon
      yes, exactly, character development and less flash. Just like MI used to be a team effort where rarely a shot was fired (because it was a out-smarting the enemy thing). Add Tom Cruise and suddenly it's a lone male shooting his gun 1,000 plus times as the center of attention.
  • movieguyryan .
    I'm not big on these movies, but that song choice made me actually want to see it. Looks kinda campy, but in a good way.
  • MAWG
    mmmmm
  • TK
    Last 2 Star Trek movies have been great and the last 3 Star Wars movies have been terrible. I am more weary of Star Wars then this. I don't mind it and the music is awesome.
  • Ehsan Davodi
    Wow....Pure Adrenaline....I Love It
  • CommonSense033
    Idiocracy was overly optimistic. Who needs to think, right? SPLOSIONS!
  • rolyjimenez
    I dont like Justin Lin's work but I have enjoyed the last two Star Trek films. I enjoyed the trailer though and am hopeful that the team behind it will pull through
  • Picassoson
    I wonder if Kirk carves a notch on his bedpost for every Enterprise he destroys.
    • Mr. Guymon
      I agree, why when the movies started, did they get on this kick of continually destroying star ships? In the TV version, so many episodes, the Enterprise showed it had some strength to it (hull integrity). Apparently in the future, going back, Starfleet built a series of substandard space craft. Also with seemingly under powered weaponry / shields. OH well...
  • ZigZagWave
    Wow...that looks awful.
  • Mr. Guymon
    a motorcycle with Captain Kirk? Really? Earthbound mentality of 1990's? That's the best they can come up with, a motorcycle stunt in the future?
