Watch Epic new Star Trek Beyond Trailer Featuring Rihanna’s “Sledgehammer”
Here's a great way to start your week; Star Trek Beyond has dropped a new trailer that includes Rihanna's sensational new song "Sledgehammer." It's a small ray of sunshine after a terrible week for Star Trek fans and Anton Yelchin fans in general; the young star, who enlivened the role of Chekov in the two previous Star Trek films, died tragically last week.
The trailer shows some new footage, including of the villain played by Idris Elba. Rihanna's "Sledgehammer" is a perfect song for director Justin Lin's action-heavy epic, blending real emotion with high stakes in what has been the new iteration of Star Trek's DNA. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, and Simon Pegg are all back, and no doubt all of Anton Yelchin's scenes will be tough to watch.
