After months of anticipation, we finally got our first look at director Justin Lin’s STAR TREK BEYOND this morning, after leaked version of the German-language trailer made its way online this weekend.
Now that we’ve got a good look at the trailer, let’s break it down!
Starting off with the familiar faces of the Enterprise crew — though these shots are pretty clearly culled together from different points in the film — the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage”, last heard in the opening moments of the 2009 Star Trek film, rocks us into the world of STAR TREK BEYOND.
As the crew abandons the Enterprise, we see Kirk launch an escape pod right from the bridge, later watching the detached saucer section fall to the planet below.
McCoy and an injured Spock, however, end up at the Pitt River Quarries:
Sofia Boutella’s alien warrior gets to show off her skills:
Most of the Enterprise crew, however, seem to have gone down with the ship as Sulu and Uhura are among the Starfleet refugees being herded together by the alien soldiers at the quarry.
Meanwhile, Sofia Boutella shows Simon Pegg something mysterious:
Some of the soldiers make it to a Federation outpost in Dubai, as Kirk takes aim:
Lastly, as Sofia Boutella fights off one of the soldiers…
Dom launches himself into the air via car crash, narrowly saving Letty from sudden death.
Wait. That’s not right.
Kirk launches himself into the air via motorbike (also last seen in Trek ’09), and the pair beam away together.
While we don’t yet have a fully picture of the STAR TREK BEYOND storyline, this trailer gives us the first ideas of where the film will take us — but one interesting note here is that even though they were jettisoned from the writing team, it seems that Roberto Orci, JD Payne, and Patrick McKay are still receiving some kind of writing credit on the film.
