Just before JJ Abrams' other little movie opens we get the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the latest film in another franchise he helped bring back.With all the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens it's easy to forget there are any other projects on the horizon but coming out next year we have the film in the rebooted series of Star Trek films. This time JJ Abrams is only a producer, well he has been quite busy with something else, and taking over the directing duties is Justin Lin of Fast and the Furious fame. The script is based on a story from Scotty himself Simon Pegg and the film stars all the regulars plus Idris Elba. It might be hard to think of anything other than Star Wars right now but it's a big universe and there's plenty of room for another space-faring adventure. This certainly looks like fun and seems to be trying to capture the spirit of the original TV series, rather than just reworking the feature films.
Star Trek Beyond opens in the UK on the 22nd of July 2016.
