The second trailer for Star Trek Beyond will premiere at a special fan event at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles on May 20th. Today, Paramount released the official rules for a video contest that will allow fans to show the world “How you Go Beyond as a Star Trek fan”, including 5 grand prizes that include airfare and a 2-night hotel stay in LA for the event.
Some might be surprised that Star Trek Beyond is coming out in two and half months, considering the lack of advertising we’ve seen for the film. At least, that’s been the sentiment on news sites, blogs, and comment boards around the internet: shouldn’t we have another trailer or more photos by now? But is the advertising for Beyond really that abysmal compared to the previous two films? We’ve constructed an interactive timeline comparing the release of promotional material before Beyond and Star Trek Into Darkness to find out.
If you’ve ever dreamed of following in the footsteps of your favorite starship captain, now’s your chance.
