New Star Trek Beyond trailer shows off the Enterprise crew as witty action heroes

It looked like we had the final trailer for Star Trek Beyond (opens in new tab) a few weeks back (opens in new tab), but apparently that was a warm-up. Paramount has unleashed the final FINAL trailer for Justin Lin's sequel mere days before it hits theaters, teasing bigger, showier setpieces and some crazy stunts with the Enterprise: 

Unlike the earlier trailers, Kirk's daddy issues take a back seat for a pretty action-packed minute. While it might have been cool to see more of that element - especially now that Chris Hemsworth is returning as Papa Kirk for Star Trek 4 (opens in new tab) - this last preview doesn't really need it. It's all about the action.  

The crew let rip some killer one-liners (Scotty and Sulu in particular) while avoiding the chaos brought about by Idris Elba's villainous Krall. It's a fun shot in the arm to get you prepped for opening weekend, a huge contrast to last month's earnest trailer. Hopefully the finished product will land somewhere between the two. If early audience reactions (opens in new tab)are anything to go by, it absolutely will. 

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