Star Trek: Beyond (7/22)

4. Star Trek: Beyond (7/22)

Dir. Justin Lin

18 of 21

The newest Star Trek movie found itself stuck in development purgatory for a couple years, but after hiring a director (Justin Lin—Fast & Furious 6) and commissioning a Simon Pegg rewrite, Star Trek: Beyond looks to dominate mid-summer of 2016. Details about the third entry in the rebooted series are few and far between, but the original crew looks to return: Captain Kirk, Spock, Bones, Uhura, Sulu, Scottie, and Chekov. Veteran actor Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation) joins the cast as the newest villain. Will he be a warring Vulcan looking for retribution after the 2nd Act events of Star Trek into Darkness? Or something entirely new? Next July will have the answer for the Federation’s latest mission—deep space.
