Star Trek Beyond Trailer Debuts New Rihanna Song

The third full trailer for Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the rebooted universe, was released online early Monday morning. The trailer showed a very different landscape of the universe, where Starfleet officials would have to pay close attention to the people living under their command. It was also the debut of a new single by megastar Rihanna.

Star Trek Beyond is the third film in Paramount's rebooted Star Trek franchise. The previous two films were directed by J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Abrams' production studio, Bad Robot, is based out of Paramount. It should come as no surprise Paramount has secured its spot and will be screening the trailer ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Beyond stars Chris Pine and Captain Kirk, Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Sofia Boutella, and Karl Urban. Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 5 & 6) takes over as director of the Simon Pegg and Doug Jung written film.

There's a healthy dose of all-out action and character moments for the remainder of the trailer, focusing on people like Scotty, Bones, Kirk, and some newcomers to the film world.


Star Trek Beyond is in theaters July 22, 2016.
