    Default Star Trek Beyond.



    Looks like fun and on par with 2009's reboot and is gonna have Justin Lin as director who has been a long time ST fan and written by Simon Pegg.

    The Biggest issue I have with the new trailer is the destruction of the Enterprise. How do you explore strange new worlds without a Star Ship?

    'Star Trek Beyond' to Ask the Big Questions About Series' Set-Up
    What does it all mean?
    Talking to Empire, director Justin Lin said, "This is the 50th anniversary. I felt like it was important to really deconstruct the idea of Star Trek, the idea of the Federation and why it’s special. We’ll really be poking at a lot of different things."

    Anton Yelchin. Huge loss.

    Good guy and a talented actor. Gone way too soon. May he rest in piece.

    Box Office: ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Warps Toward $55 Million Debut
    The new film is an expensive one, carrying an $185 million production budget.

    Not just because films like “Zoolander 2” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” fell flat at the box office. The venerable studio has been engulfed in the ongoing corporate fight over the future of its parent company, Viacom.


    The company’s CEO Philippe Dauman is selling a minority stake in Paramount, a move that controlling shareholder Sumner Redstone and his daughter Shari Redstone, oppose. So things must be a little awkward on the lot.




    But help, or at least a Starship Enterprise-sized distraction, is on the way. The studio is bringing “Star Trek Beyond” into theaters, launching the third film in the rebooted sci-fi series across 3,800 locations, including 391 Imax venues. The latest in the long-running franchise is expected to pull in a solid $55 million, with some analysts projecting it could hit $60 million.


    That should be enough to top the weekend box office, but it is down from the $70.2 million launch of 2014’s “Star Trek Into Darkness” and the $75.2 million bow of 2009’s “Star Trek.” The latest voyage sees Justin Lin (“Fast & Furious 6”) take over the directing reins from J.J. Abrams, who is still a producer after helming the two previous films.


    Paramount clearly believes that audiences are still eager to follow the Enterprise crew on more deep space adventures. It already announced a sequel, which will bring back Chris Hemsworth as Kirk’s father, and is backing a new television series.


    “It’s definitely a bright spot for Paramount,” said Shawn Robbins, senior analyst at BoxOffice.com. “There’s still momentum left in the franchise.”

    The New Power of "Yes": Who Actually Has Greenlight Authority at the Movie Studios
    Paramount re-evaluates Brad Grey's influence as industry upheavals alter internal politics all over town and committees become the norm. Gripes one producer, "You used to know whom to appeal to — and now you're not sure."


    BRAD GREY’S EXIT AT PARAMOUNT IS IMMINENT (EXCLUSIVE)
    Grey’s departure from his post as Chairman and CEO of the studio is imminent — as in, no longer a matter of “if,” but a matter of “when,”
