Watch: Another action-packed trailer for Star Trek Beyond May 20, 2016


The second Star Trek Beyond trailer is here, and with it, a lot of new footage — though it doesn’t really tell us anything we didn’t already know from the first trailer.

If that recycled footage appears in the new film, then that will make at least two threequels this summer — the other being X-Men: Apocalypse — that re-use footage from the original preboots.

May 21 update: Paramount has released a new video of a “fan event” that took place at the studio last night; this is where the new trailer was first unveiled:
