Two stunning new posters for ‘Star Trek Beyond’ have been released by Paramount and they both serve as a rather cool tribute to the original TV show. This first showing Kirk, Spock, and Sofia Boutella’s Jaylah in a rainbow of light is directly inspired by the classic poster for 1979′s ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture’, the film that breathed new life into the dormant sci-fi franchise. While the other teaser poster seems to have teleported in from the groovy 1960s which, of course, is when the original ‘Star Trek’ series was first broadcast.
Just a few hours after the release of the first trailer for ‘Star Trek Beyond’ (which you can watch above), Yahoo spoke to director Justin Lin about the upcoming film. Topics for discussion included stepping into JJ Abrams’ shoes as the director, working with Simon Pegg on the script, Idris Elba’s terrifying new villain and his love for the 'spirit’ of 'Star Trek’. Lin, who directed four of the 'Fast And Furious’ films, also told us how the film will honour the 50th anniversary of the 'Star Trek’ universe… and what it was like to destroy the USS Enterprise.
