Even though the new teaser for Star Trek Beyond has the USS Enterprise being destroyed, and the entire crew being splintered off from each other, it's still decidedly upbeat. I think that's my main takeaway from this teaser, and it has me pretty excited.
I will admit that I'm not the biggest Star Trek fan. Hell, if it wasn't for the 2009 reboot, I probably would have never touched the franchise otherwise, but J.J. Abrams and his studio, Bad Robot, did a pretty great job at making the stories relevant. But the sequel, Into Darkness, took itself a little too seriously. Beyond seems to dial the seriousness back a little bit. Maybe it's the song choice, or the witty lines used in the trailer, but this movie just seems to be more "fun," than serious.
In any case, check out the teaser above!
