Star Trek Beyond: New trailer to debut at 50th anniversary fan event on May 20
Mark your calendars — the final trailer for Star Trek Beyond will debut May 20.
Justin Lin, who took over director duties from J.J. Abrams for the third movie in the franchise, announced Thursday that the newest glimpse of never-before-seen footage from the July 22 release will be part of a one-time-only fan event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the series created by Gene Roddenberry. Taking place at the historic Paramount Pictures studio lot in Hollywood, California, the cast and crew will join Lin for a Q&A where there are promises of special guest appearances and other surprises. Fans who can’t join in person will be able to watch all the action via Facebook Live.
“As a lifelong fan of Trek, we wanted to do something special for the fans and we couldn’t think of a better way to do that than creating an event dedicated to them in the year that we also come together to celebrate the series’ amazing 50th year,” Lin said.
In Beyond, which stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoë Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban and series newcomer Idris Elba, the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
