‘Star Trek: Beyond’ Cast Holds Press Conference In Dubai

The cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond just finished a three-month film shoot in Vancouver and now will film for 13-days in the city of Dubai.

The cast held a press conference today to talk about filming in the city.

“Dubai represents the future of what the frontier would be like in our film, and is an excellent place to shoot the movie as well as a special opportunity for all of us. This is not just the third of three movies, but has a new, refreshing twist, and Dubai’s great visuals really fit the story,” said producer Jeffrey Chernov.

“I love discovering new places and Dubai is such a stunning city – it looks like a future land! I am extremely happy to be here making this great film with Justin and the team, and so far my experiences have been wonderful, people have been gracious and welcoming,” said Chris Pine.

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 8, 2016.
