For those keeping up at home, the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the third in the series of rebooted Star Trek films, is scheduled to pop up in front of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this weekend.
But if you can’t wait, you can take a look at what Justin Lin, Simon Pegg and company have gotten up to since JJ Abrams departed from directorial duties on this franchise.
This trailer, really out of place Beastie Boys music aside, somewhat reminds me of the days of the Next Generation films. That can be good or bad, depending on your perspective. But I hope that’s not Idris Elba covered up in tons of makeup…
Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22nd next year.
