New “Star Wars” Movie To Debut New “Star Trek” Trailer

Trekbar640In a classic case of “the source meets the force,” TG2 Studios have learned that the first official trailer for the upcoming Star Trek Beyond will be attached to J.J. Abrams and Disney’s/Lucasfilms’ Star Wars VIII: The Force Awakens when it is released on December 18. While this may seem a bit odd at first glance, all one needs to do is remember that the first two Star Trek movies, as well as this Star Wars film were directed by Abrams.

In a story from The Hollywood Reporter it was also suggested that The Force Awakens, given it’s already huge built-in popularity as well as soaring pre-sale tickets, will also see trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeThe Huntsman: Winter’s WarIndependence Day Resurgence and X-Men: Apocalypse attached to the film. And given that Disney is distributing Star Wars there is some talk that fans might also see trailers for The Jungle BookCaptain America: Civil War as well as Finding Dory.

Star Trek Beyond is set to feature the return of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoë Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and John Cho. Also joining the movie will be Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella and Joe Taslima. Abrams, since taking on The Force Awakens as its director has settled for the role of producer for this third Star Trek Film, and Justin Lin (four time Fast and Furious director) will helping this latest film with a script from Simon Pegg and Doug Jung.

Star Trek Beyond will hit regular theaters and IMAX on July 22, 2016. That’s just over a month before the franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary. Although it wasn’t the first episode produced, “The Man Trap” was the first Star Trek episode to be broadcast and it hit  television September 8, 1966.
