First off, the title is not a misquote, so please do not take to the comments with your plastic Spock ears on and tell me it is. I used profit instead of prosper because at this point, profit is just what this series is making. Though the recent and tragic death of actor Anton Yelchin has cast a bit of a gray cloud over Star Trek Beyond, the reality is, so far it is rocking a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, which we all know is no easy feat. People seem to really enjoy the youthful energy that director Justin Lin has injected into the rebooted franchise this time around.
Beyond seems to strike a nice balance between what made the original series so appealing, and also has enough action and excitement that it can fill seats with some new fans as well. Justin Lin is best known for his work on The Fast and Furious movies, and that pacing reflects itself throughout Beyond, in the best ways possible.
But outside of a pretty vague trailer with a kickass song playing, what do you really know about Star Trek Beyond except that it is the third movie in a rebooted series? Very little, I bet. Thankfully this video will give you some insight into this movie, the people who made it, the fine actors and actresses who star in it, and what Beyond intends to do for core fans as well as news fans of this amazing series.
Check it out. That sounded a lot like Chekov. Now I’m sad again.
