So far, this Summer Movie Season has been wholly underwhelming with its blockbusters. However, all eyes are on the forthcoming Star Trek: Beyond to deliver big in spectacle and fun - both of which are in abundance in the new trailer for the film.

There was some tragic news in Hollywood last week as actor Anton Yelchin passed away. Star of Green Room and playing Chekov in the forthcoming Star Trek threequel, he was an incrediby talented actor that will be truly missed. However, his memory will live on, especially in the final trailer for Beyond - which will mark his last ever on-screen appearance in the franchise.

I'm a big fan of the Star Trek franchise, that director J.J Abrams reboot back in 2009, and, this year, we're set to return to that world for the third instalment in the franchise. Paramount have released the final trailer for the film, which also includes the  first listen of Rihanna's new single Sledgehammer, for the film. It's pretty awesome; check it out:

So yeah, that's a pretty cool trailer. The first teaser for Beyond wasn't great, feeling more so like Fast and Furious In Space than a Star Trek movie but the last trailer made amends on that and captured the atmosphere, tone and magic of this franchise. As you can see, this trailer does just that too. It's an exciting reveal and the film looks epic, fun and great. There's plenty of cool, new footage on offer here, and Rihanna's music accompanies it all brilliantly.

Here's the film's official synopsis:
"Star Trek Beyond," the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin ("The Fast and the Furious" franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In "Beyond," the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
With Justin Lin taking over the helm from J.J Abrams, and starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Karl Urban, Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella, Star Trek: Beyond is set to land in cinemas on July 22nd, 2016.

And here's a slew of colourful character posters for the film:
