While Paramount’s final official Star Trek Beyond trailer dropped online last month, a new Barco Escape format trailer just hit the web, and while the footage is familiar, it’s a whole different format. In the latest film, the Enterprise is a few years into its five-year mission when a mysterious force attacks and the crew must survive on an unknown planet filled with its own conflict. And sure, you could watch that movie on a standard big screen, hell, you can even watch it on an IMAX if you’re so inclined, but did you know you can see it in an immersive, panoramic three-screen format? I’m honestly not sure if that’s how I’d want to see a movie for the first time, but I’d certainly be interested to try it.
For Star Trek Beyond, Fast and Furious director Justin Lin takes the helm on a script by Simon Pegg. The film stars the returning crew Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, and Karl Urban, alongside newcomers Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella and lands in theaters July 22nd. Watch the panoramic trailer below and find a listing of theaters formatted with the three-screen system here.
Here’s the official synopsis for Star Trek Beyond:
“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.
