The cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond held a junket last week where they answered questions about their characters, the writing process, and hopes for the future of the franchise (including plans for a fourth film).
Star Trek Beyond
In what seems to be a misstep for the marketing machine, Paramount UK has posted a new promo that we feel reveals far too much about Star Trek Beyond’s villain Krall, it is titled “Be Ready”. TrekMovie recommends everyone avoid this video, it really is that big of a deal. The video is making the rounds, and people who noticed it when it first posted, watched it, and now regret it. We will not be posting a link to it, however it is already out there on social media, so you’ve been warned!
TrekMovie and Barco Escape have teamed up to give 5 lucky winners a pair of tickets to see Star Trek Beyond in the new immersive format. Not near a Barco Escape theater? We’ve got you covered. Read on to see how!
Star Trek Beyond is a rollicking, fun adventure that stays true to the ethos of The Original Series. It seems that Paramount has finally done what they set out to do with the Kelvin timeline reboot: to merge the oil-and-water worlds of Star Trek and the summer blockbuster. Read on for our spoiler-free review, followed by a spoiler-light version (i.e. nothing that hasn’t been seen in trailers, clips, or revealed in interviews).
Soufia Boutella (Jaylah), Simon Pegg, JJ Abrams, and Justin Lin talk about the new mysterious character of Jaylah.
The first reactions to Star Trek Beyond are here! And, everyone seems to be in agreement: it’s fantastic. UPDATE: Simon Pegg opens the LA press screening, pays tribute to Anton Yelchin.
In a new clip from Star Trek Beyond, Scotty meets the mysterious new Jaylah. Not that we need to say it here, but… beware of spoilers!
Simon Pegg took to his personal blog to discuss the reaction to the recent news about Sulu’s sexuality, George Takei’s reaction to it, and how the Kelvin timeline works.
Here’s a marketing partnership done right: Enterprise Rent-A-Car has released their first commercial featuring their Star Trek partnership, and it’s perfect.
Star Trek Beyond made its world premiere in Australia last night, and the film’s stars were there in force.
Update: George Takei criticized the move to reveal Sulu as gay, but Beyond stars Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg disagree, the latter suggesting such a move would have been “tokenism.”
Last year, when he was Anton Yelchin was promoting the movie Green Room at the Cannes film festival, he gave an interview to writer John Bleasdale that seems especially poignant now. It gives great insight into Yelchin’s background, his goals, and his appreciation for the franchise that was so fun for him to be a part of.
Both Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg have been finding it difficult to talk about Anton Yelchin this week, as they do the rounds promoting Star Trek Beyond.
The Visual Effects of Star Trek Beyond are being handled by the excellent crew of Double Negative. Their work has won them acclaim and a couple of Oscars too (for Ex Machina and Interstellar). Kevin H. Martin, a Trekkie, and active member of online Trek communities – including TrekMovie, has a new article for HD Video Pro Magazine where he interviews co-founder and VFX supervisor Peter Chiang about Beyond.
Paramount has posted a new clip through Facebook featuring Spock/Uhura drama plus some sage words from the good doctor, this gives a glimpse of the new emphasis on the Spock/McCoy relationship, that we’ve heard was in Beyond. As with all clips, this comes with a warning of spoilers for those trying to stay pure before July 22.
You’ve seen the latest trailer and heard Rihanna’s Star Trek Beyond inspired track “Sledgehammer”. Now see the music video, just released today.
Back in May during the Star Trek Beyond fan event Rihanna was one of the faces that popped up on screen and professed her love for Trek. It turns out that was merely a snippet of a somewhat longer promo video that Paramount has now released on their official YouTube channel. Click on to see RiRi rocking her TOS t-shirt in the full video.
There’s a new Star Trek Beyond commercial making the rounds on US television. This one includes new footage, and has an emphasis on the crew and exploration, the commercial ends with McCoy asking “You really want to go back out there?” This is a refreshing change from the almost entirely action oriented commercials/trailers released so far.
Interviewing Simon Pegg looks like an awful lot of fun. Pegg sat down with Popular Science Magazine in May and gave them an earful about everything from warp drive to on-ship pizza delivery. He talks about his favorite piece of technology, explains warp drive, and answers the classic question about who’d win a fight, Kirk or Picard.
A final trailer for Star Trek Beyond has been released by Paramount Pictures this morning.
