A couple of factoids before we move on, dear PoP geek reader.
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!
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.
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…
So the pressure is on and the teaser captures that mood brilliantly. In cinemas July, 2016.
