Below is the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the third movie in the rebooted Star Trek series. This Beastie Boys-soundtracked trailer plays up the action and humor, which makes sense since it was directed by Justin Lin (a veteran of the Fast and Furious franchise) and co-written by Simon Pegg (who plays Scotty and of course also co-wrote Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End). Let’s hope there’s still some actual science fiction to go with that action and that it’s also not too much of a retread of a previous Star Trek movie the way Star Trek Into Darkness made too many references to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In this one it looks like the Enterprise gets destroyed and the crew gets trapped on a hostile alien planet.

J.J. Abrams directed the last two Star Trek movies, but was too busy relaunching Star Wars (directing this Friday’s blockbuster The Force Awakens). He does produce Beyond. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, and John Cho all return, with Idris Elba joining the cast as the villain. The movie is due out July 22, 2016 and next year is the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. There’s also a new Star Trek TV series in the works for 2017.
