I thought the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond was fine — nothing special, but decent enough for a teaser trailer. But then I saw the newest trailer, and I was pretty blown away by how great it looks. It's a complete reversal from that first marketing attempt, and the movie has gone from something I was mostly ambivalent about to one of my most anticipated films of the summer.
Paramount has released a bunch of character posters for the film over the past few days, and rather than string it out into a series of articles, I figured we'd just wait until they were all released and post them all in one easy-to-find spot for those who care about this kind of thing. The ones for Kirk (above) and Krall (Idris Elba's new villain) were just released this morning.
Star Trek Beyond blasts into theaters on July 22, 2016.
