Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Justin Lin‘s (Fast and Furious 6) Star Trek Beyond starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Anton Yelchin. Newcomers include the talents of Joe Taslim (The Raid, Fast and Furious 6), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service and the upcoming Mummy reboot), and Idris Elba (Pacific Rim, Beasts of No Nation).
Written by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, the first teaser doesn’t offer much in terms of plot, but based on previous reports the film is said to be based on the “five-year mission” that the original series was known for.
There are rumors that Idris Elba could be playing a Klingon, and since they haven’t been seen in any way that would make a significant impact on the franchise reboot.
Beyond would be the perfect time for the alien race to cause some problems to the crew of the Enterprise, who seem to be in a bit of trouble.
Although Pegg has spoken openly about how Elba won’t be playing a Klingon – or maybe he is just taking a page out of J.J. Abrams’ mystery box playbook.
Star Trek Beyond opens in theaters on July 22, 2016.
