Earlier today a German version of the Star Trek Beyond film leaked online, fans were obviously excited to see a trailer for the third film in this franchise, but since it wasn’t an official release it felt like the trailer could be yanked offline at any time. Paramount Pictures did one better though, it released the official trailer for this movie in English, so you don’t need to know German to enjoy this one.
The trailer starts off with a throwback to the first Star Trek film which had a young James Tiberius Kirk traversing the desert in a bid to escape the law. We then get a good look at each crew member aboard the USS Enterprise as they navigate through various asteroids that surround their spacecraft.
The problem with the leaked trailer was that it was in German so you couldn’t really understand what the characters were saying, unless you knew German, nevertheless the visuals were pretty self-explanatory. Having the official English version out is much better though, you don’t need to pay nearly as much attention to figure out what’s going on.
It does make some new revelations though, like showing some of the new species that the Enterprise crew will encounter, we also get to see their new uniforms and some chummy moments between Kirk and Spock.
Star Trek Beyond is the first film in this franchise that’s not directed by J.J. Abrams, it’s going to hit the big screen on July 22nd next year.
