Star Trek Beyond Trailer
Well, just when we couldn't be more excited for space operas this week, Paramount unleashed their first look at "Star Trek Beyond." The third movie in this reboot series of "Star Trek."
One thing that is instantly recognizable in this trailer is that the tone of the show seems to be there. While I did enjoy "Star Trek Into Darkness," making it a gritty tale I think hurt it more than helped it. Not everything has to have the "Dark Knight" treatment just because it worked for Batman. When I think of "Star Trek," I think of deep space adventure. I think of swashbuckling fables. I think of fun and flair. I don't think of the military and people dying or darkness. Sure, there is action in the show, and the old movies. There was also violence from time to time. But this always felt like a feel-good story and it seems that atmosphere is finally back.
There is also hope that Bones will have more to do in this movie and I am hoping that turns into a guarantee.
I love that Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" is the theme song for this trailer.
We have been so rich with peaks at 2016 for the last month that I am pumped and primed for it to get here. I hope its a year that lives up to its ever expanding potential.
