By ·May 21, 2016 9:10 am

Star Trek: Beyond’s second trailer is out and it’s as action packed as you’d expect. The trailer opens up to Bones (Karl Urban) and Kirk (Chris Pine) reflecting on Captain’s direction in life and how that everything up to this point in his career had been because of his father. The trailer then transition to Kirk and his crew heading off to space once again for another five-year mission.

The real meat and potatoes of this trailer is getting to see the utter ruthlessness of the new alien species. We see scenes of the new alien species decimating the U.S.S Enterprise with their swarming kamikaze attack manouvers, completly blindsiding Captain Kirk and his crew. Subsequently the crew of the Enterprise are forced to use the life shuttles and make a desperate escape towards an unknown planet. We also also get glimpses of Idris Elba’s villian Krall. Certainly there is a lot to enjoy in this trailer and the CGI looks magnificent, watch it for yourself below and let us know your thoughts.

The premise for Star Trek: Beyond is:

After stopping off at Starbase Earhart, a remote outpost on the fringes of Federation space, the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, is destroyed by a powerful, unstoppable wave of unknown aliens. With the crew stranded on a unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, they find themselves in conflict with a new ruthless enemy who has a well-earned hatred of the Federation and what it stands for.

While we don’t know a great deal of the plot or much about the new alien species at this point, I imagine in the next few weeks we are going to start seeing and hearing much more about this film as it get’s closer to it’s July release date. In the meantime we do have a new theatrical poster for you to enjoy and while it doesn’t show a great deal, it does look pretty good. As we find out more about Star Trek: Beyond we’ll be sure to let you know.

Star Trek: Beyond is being directed by Justin Lin is due for release July 22nd 2016.
