Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond is the third film in the new franchise and comes three years after the release and success of Star Trek Into Darkness back in 2013.

Directed by Justin Lin, Star Trek Beyond is set to be the biggest film in the series so far and the brand new trailer really is promising an action-packed ride. Take a look:

Lin is no stranger to the blockbuster with the Fast & Furious franchise under his belt and I am looking forward to seeing him step into the sci-fi genre and put his stamp on the franchise.

This is the first of the new Star Trek movies to not have been directed by J.J. Abrams, but he is on board as a producer.

It may be all change in the director's chair, but there are plenty of familiar faces on the cast list as Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, and John Cho are back.

Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella are the big new additions to the cast list as they will take on the roles of Krall and Jaylah for the first time.

However, this is a movie release that is tinged with sadness after the death of Anton Yelchin last week - the actor will be back as Chekov in the new film.

In Star Trek Beyond, 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.

Star Trek Beyond is released 22nd July.
