A couple of factoids before we move on, dear PoP geek reader.

Enterprise gets destroyed... again!
Enterprise gets destroyed… again!

First, Justin Lin (of Fast & Furious fame 3-6) directs (JJ Abrams had some other scifi movie to work on!). Second, this movie is being released in 2016 — the most saturated geek movie year EVAH!

Kirk Spock

In this context, it is not surprising that the recently released teaser trailer is as frenetic as it is. If Star Trek Into Darkness was any indication, expect Beyond to be even lighter on plot and heavier on the action.

Uhura Bones

Considering the competition out there in 2016 (Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War and X-Men: Apocalypse), it would be easy for this movie to be completely ignored. In fact, there is already a bit of geek trailer fatigue creeping in…

Alien Chick

So the pressure is on and the teaser captures that mood brilliantly. In cinemas July, 2016.
