SPOILER ALERT: Stay far away from newest promo “Be Ready”

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!

Zoe Saldana Beaming Onto So Many Magazines You’d Think She’d Been Duplicated

It was an interesting choice by JJ Abrams and crew to elevate the role of Uhura from bit player to center stage – or rather, center bridge – a choice doubtless made easier because of the dynamic Zoe Saldana. This month, as we go into the real publicity blitz for Star Trek Beyond, CNET Magazine, features Zoe Saldana on the cover of its summer issue, which hit newsstands today.


Chris Pine: “You can’t make cerebral Star Trek in 2016” *UPDATED*

Chris Pine was one of many Star Trek Beyond stars to sit down with Britain’s biggest SF and fantasy magazine, SFX, to talk Trek and more. On making Trek in 2016, Pine said that, while the JJ films have tried to touch on “demanding questions and themes”, it’s just not possible to make a movie without “wham-bam explosions and planets blowing up”. Plus, SFX grabbed exclusive interviews from Director Justin Lin, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Soufia Boutella, who joins the cast as Jaylah. [UPDATE]: Quote from Sofia Boutella on her new character, Jaylah, who has the most in common with Kirk.
