“Let’s hope this doesn’t get messy!” is a line uttered in the first trailer to Star Trek Beyond. Indeed, that’s what Trekkies are hoping as the recently rebooted series is given from J.J. Abrams to Fast & Furious maestro Justin Lin in its third installment, and first to look light and decidedly goofy after 2013’s grim Star Trek Into Darkness.
The gang’s all back, led by Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock, but we also have a bunch of silly one-liners and the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” as background music. Do you like explosions and Guardians of the Galaxy? This Star Trek is for you! If you like Abrams’ nuanced approach to character-building… Star Trek Into Darkness is definitely on Blu-Ray and DVD!
Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22, 2016. In the meantime, have you heard of Abrams’ new spaced-themed film project?
