STAR TREK: BEYOND Teases Kirk's Last Mission In The Final Trailer
Prospects are looking great for anime classic, Akira with Justin Lin currently circling the long-awaited live-action adaptation according to much fan fervor stemming from last week. Time will tell to see if and how that latest bit sticks while it's been a few years since Lin was attached to a few projects, including an iteration of Jet Li classic, Shaolin Temple.
Of course, sci-fi fans and Trekkies alike may be thankful for his involvement on Paramount Pictures's third installation of the Star Trek reboot epic, Star Trek: Beyond. The latest trailers since then have all been exciting and stimulating along with several key bits of artwork, which much of that energy is ado with those grieving over the loss of its co-star, Anton Yelchin last week.
All for the better though, the studio's promotional campaign rolls on for a film that will undoubtedly pay tribute to Yelchin whose brilliant adaptation to Walter Koenig's iconic role as ensign Chekov further helps embody the overall gravitas and splendor of the new trilogy today. The late Yechin joins Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoë Saldana, Karl Urban, Jon Cho, Simon Pegg, Sofia Boutella and Idris Elba for the film's July 22 release.
Watch the final trailer below featuring the vocal stylings of singer Rihanna with the new song, "Sledgehammer".
