News of Star Trek 4 officially being in development first surfaced last summer. Producer J.J. Abrams confirmed work on the sequel and revealed it would somehow bring back Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk, the father of James T. Kirk who perished in exciting opening sequence of the first installment of the reboot that established a whole new timeline in the Star Trek universe. Since then all we’ve heard is vague hype about the sequel, and it sounds like the cast is unsure whether it will actually happen.
In a recent interview, Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto says that he’s still waiting for the script to be completed, and despite being hopeful that he’ll be able to reprise his role as Mr. Spock, the movie doesn’t seem to have been greenlit yet.

After recycling a little too much of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan for the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, the rebooted franchise based on Gene Roddenberry’s classic sci-fi series needed a new direction to bring some freshness back to the final frontier. Thankfully, with Star Trek Beyond, director Justin Lin has managed to craft a extremely entertaining journey back into space for the USS Enterprise. It’s a sequel that blends some of the signature style of the classic Star Trek series with the action sensibilities of a modern blockbuster.

Star Trek Beyond opens in just a few days and a new TV spot has spoiled one of the film’s biggest twists. In other words, you probably shouldn’t watch that new TV spot. I highly recommend not watching that new TV spot. And now Simon Pegg, the co-writer of the film and the man wearing chief engineer Montgomery Scott’s red uniform, has made it clear that you shouldn’t watch this new TV spot. This may have the opposite effect and entice you into actually watching this new TV spot, but hey, at least we’re trying here. At the very least, now you know exactly what you’re getting into here rather than blindly stumbling into a 30 second advertisement that blatantly gives away a third act reveal.

The early buzz is strong for Star Trek Beyond. Oddly, the film may not screen in certain territories for critics, but considering the first wave of reviews are almost as positive as they were for J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 reboot, maybe that’ll change.

Now that 2009’s Star Trek re-introduced the classic Enterprise crew and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness did everything in its power to wreck them, Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond has a bold new task before it: introducing new characters and allowing them to stand out amidst a cast of familiar faces and iconic names. We’ll hopefully get a memorable new adversary in Idris Elba‘s Krall and as this new clip from the film seems to indicate, Sofia Boutella‘s Jaylah certainly appears to be a unique addition to the ensemble.

Simon Pegg and George Takei have a respectful disagreement over Star Trek Beyond. Last week, actor John Cho said that Hikaru Sulu is gay in the Kelvin timeline. Most fans were delighted by the news, as director Justin Lin and screenwriters Simon Pegg and Doug Jung were attempting to preserve the progressive spirit of Gene Roddenberry‘s creation. George Takei, on the other hand, believes the decision is “unfortunate” and a “twisting of Gene’s creation.”
Pegg quickly responded to Takei’s comments, and now he’s followed up with a blog post that explains why they made Sulu an LGBTQ character without Takei’s blessing and why the Kelvin timeline means they’re not beholden to preexisting canon. Below, read a part of Pegg’s explanation.
