STAR TREK BEYOND Is What Trekkies Have Been Waiting For

While it won’t be widely released in US theaters until next week, a private press screening of Star Trek Beyond was held on Wednesday night in Los Angeles — and initial reviews are overwhelmingly positive.

TrekNews.net contributor Laura Sirikul, who attended the LA screening, tweeted “#StarTrekBeyond is what the Trekkies have been waiting for from the three movies. This was great” immediately following the film’s conclusion.

“The word is given!! #StarTrekBeyond is a blast! Great fun, action, humor! A throwback to The Original Series!” tweeted Access Hollywood film critic Scott Mantz.

Critic for the Guardian and host of Engage: The Official Star Trek Podcast Jordan Hoffman tweeted “STAR TREK BEYOND does something magical: has big, bold action but puts these characters in, basically, a TOS episode. For me it was a dream.”

Directed by Justin Lin, written by Simon Pegg, Doug Jung, Roberto Orci, John D. Payne and Patrick McCay, Star Trek Beyond stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella and Lydia Wilson. The film will hit theaters on July 22 after premiering during San Diego Comic-Con on July 20.

        No we know what NO Star Trek is. And this stupid Abrams Stuff is NOT Star Trek 😉

    Saw it twice, the second time in IMAX 3D, and enjoyed it. Is it perfect? No, but it is entertaining, and also has several callbacks to Trek history. For me, it was the veritable “good time at the movies”.
