Contextual Trailer: Star Trek Beyond!


Remember the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond? The one that was a whirlwind of action with only pauses for a couple pithy remarks?  Remember how a lot of Trekkers complained that it looked like Beyond was going to be Fast and Furious in space?

The new trailer puts all that action into context – with Captain James T. Kirk facing a bit of an existential crisis, and a brief flurry of Spock/Bones debate. It’s as if Paramount Pictures was aware of how fans would react to the first trailer thus setting up this more typically Trek trailer.

This is a superb second trailer. Check it out after the break. Star Trek Beyond opens on July 22nd.
