Star Trek Beyond is in the midst of its location shooting in Dubai, and video has been posted online that gives us a glimpse at one of the film’s outdoor shoots.
The film began shooting in Dubai a couple of weeks back, with various still images leaking online. This video, shot below the Central Park Towers, show Starfleet personnel running about a damaged facility of some kind:
A still from the shoot was also captured, showing many actors in standard Starfleet uniforms, as well as some in larger, bulkier gray outfits (new security uniforms, perhaps?).

Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22, 2016.
