‘Star Trek Beyond’ To Debut Trailer In Front Of ‘Star Wars’
“Star Trek Beyond” first trailer to debut before “Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens”
Who would have thought a “Star Trek” director would be making a “Star Wars” film? Well that’s what happened when J.J. Abrams signed on to the newest “Star Wars” film after making two Star Trek films. So in some way it’s fitting to see the debut of the new “Star Trek: Beyond” trailer in front of its rival franchise, “Star Wars.”
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is set to be released on December 18th of this year. Earlier reports suggested that the trailer for “Captain America: Civil War” was going to debut in front of Star Wars which made sense as both are owned by Disney, however as you’re reading this article on the internet you’re probably aware that the “Captain America: Civil War” trailer was already released. Now it seems that perhaps an even more perfect choice has taken that slot.
“Star Trek: Beyond” is set to be released on July 22 of next year. Very little has been revealed about the plot or even images but the J.J. Abrams’ influence is strong. Idris Elba will be apart of the cast as a villain The new director taking over for Abrams will be Justin Lin (director of many of the “Fast and Furious” sequels) and the writers will be Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. Many fans will surely be glad to get this new trailer.
What’s always been odd about the two franchises is that they’re considered rivals and there will definitely be some heated talks if you mistake one for the other around certain circles. However speaking for myself, everyone I have ever known is a fan of both. Sure some may prefer one over the other but I can’t remember anyone ever seriously denouncing one while still enjoying the other. So to me this seems like a perfect pairing.
Are you excited for the new Star Trek film? Is this a good place to debut it?
