New ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Trailer Encounters Idris Elba

Paramount Pictures released the latest trailer for ‘Star Trek Beyond’ at midnight on Friday. The footage reveals the first look at Idris Elba as the villain Krall. This trailer feels more in line with the Star Trek universe compared to the Beastie Boys motorcycle trailer we got last year.

Simon Pegg and Doug Jung scripted the film, with an emphasis on Star Trek’s roots.

“We want to make a Star Trek for today that doesn’t forget where is came from,” said Pegg.

The studio also released a new retro poster for the film.

Star Trek Beyond stars Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho and Anton Yelchin with direction from Justin Lin. The film opens July 22, 2016.
