Final Star Trek Beyond trailer shows the Enterprise crew abandoning ship (again)

We're just a few weeks away from the release of Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the rebooted series that began in 2009. A new (and final?) trailer for the Justin Lin directed film has found its way online teasing a ton of action, a troubled Kirk, and the destruction of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Again.

Check it out below...

The trailer is soundtracked by Rihanna's 'Sledgehammer', and it works a lot better with this Star Trek footage than the Beastie Boys did with the first trailer. That's partially because this trailer is much more melancholic than anything we've seen thus far, and that comes from its focus on Chris Pine's Kirk. I'm really curious about how they're setting up that arc; Tying the Captain's inner conflict back to his father (hello Chris Hemsworth!) in the first film is an interesting move that will hopefully lead to a satisfying payoff. 

Directed by Justin Lin and starring Idris Elba, Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and Anton Yelchin, Star Trek Beyond warps into UK and US cinemas on July 22, 2016.
