As I’ve mentioned in a recent post, we haven’t seen a lot of news about the next Star Trek since Justin Lin took over the directorial reigns recently. That’s finally changing, slowly.
One of my all time favourite sites, io9, gives us a glimpse of what appears to be a new alien lifeform that will feature in the film, as well as a few other shots that include the familiar corridors of the Enterprise, and a small selection of props.
This all comes out of a new promo video for the Omaze/Star Trek competition to raise funds for deserving charities. The video was released today on YouTube.
The short, few minutes presentation features Simon Pegg and Anton Yelchin (and someone’s pooch) riffing off each other for our entertainment – and it is actually entertaining! Pegg and Yelchin are pretty damn funny together.
Hopefully this means more information will come out now that we’re less than a year away from the July 8 2016 release of Star Trek Beyond.
