The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond is out and it has many people talking, but not necessarily in a good way.
In Beyond, Captain James T. Kirk and the rest of the USS Enterprise’s crew are attacked by a powerful and seemingly unstoppable wave of unknown aliens, who manage to destroy the ship and leave them stranded on a new planet where they must defend themselves against a new ruthless enemy.
It’s an interesting plot; it’s just too bad the trailer doesn’t do it the justice it probably deserves. See for yourself and let us know what you think…
Unlike the teaser trailer for the 2009 Star Trek movie, this new piece is cheesy, lacks cohesion and tries too hard to be like an action movie.
Justin Lin, the director of Beyond, also directed the Fast and Furious 3 to 6, which might explain the fast, high-octane Fast and Furious vibe of the trailer. Simply put, it doesn’t feel like a Star Trek movie — the song selection, editing, etc. all feel out of whack.
Let’s hope Star Trek Beyond turns out better than it’s advertised. Are you still looking forward to it after watching the trailer?
