Can ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Save A Boring Summer Blockbuster Season?

Paramount Pictures released the third trailer for ‘Star Trek Beyond’ featuring “Sledgehammer” by Rihanna.

The 2016 Summer Blockbuster Season has been very bland, to say the least. After ‘Captain America: Civil War’ it’s been a string of miss fires with ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows,’ ‘Warcraft,’ and now ‘Independence Day Resurgence.’

Could ‘Star Trek Beyond’ which hits theaters on July 22 be the blockbuster we’ve been waiting for?

‘Star Trek Beyond,’ the next installment in Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry, returns with director Justin Lin at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In ‘Beyond,’ the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

The film stars Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho and Anton Yelchin.
