The release of Star Trek Beyond on July 22nd is exciting fans all around the world. It would be very cynical to look at this movie as just another Star Trek film. The set up is generally the same, stranded on a hostile planet, Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the Enterprise crew face an alien threat. However, we know that having Justin Lin on board changes the game a bit. Helmer of the first two, J.J. Abrams brought action and cerebral tendencies to this franchise. Justin Lin, bless his heart, is known for the action intensity of the Fast and the Furious films. What does this mean? Will Star Trek Beyond be nothing but an action fest? Hardly. Something tells us we’re going to see a summer film that delivers everything we’ve come to expect from a Star Trek installment, mixed with the completely crazy, death defying antics that Justin Lin somehow manages to pull off time and again.
No doubt this should be exciting fans throughout the world.
