star trekThe news I had heard before today was that the brand new Star Trek: Beyond trailer was supposed to be attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens film. Now Paramount had no choice but to release the trailer after it had been leaked online which is what exactly happened to Paramount with the trailer to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. These companies have to understand that we live in an age now where people no longer want to wait and be surprised like Christmas morning. Instead, they want to be like yours truly who sneaks into his parents bedroom (when I was a kid of course) to see if I could find my Christmas presents. It’s the age of the internet where everything leaks or at least someone is stealing something and revealing it to the world leaving studios no choice, but to release the trailers.

One thing that I am baffled about and that is why in the world would you be anxious to see this trailer? After watching the trailer myself, I couldn’t help but think that this is one I am definitely going to pass up on when it comes to the theaters. I love the fact that they used the Beastie Boys song Sabotage during the whole entire trailer, but it just doesn’t seem as great as the previous two films. This one could be a major flop, but only time will tell. The Turtles trailer was the one worth wanting to see early because that looks and promises to be better than the first film. The whole cast (Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Zachary Quinto, etc.) returns with Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella also starring in the film. There is apparently no Enterprise as it looks like it gets destroyed in the trailer and they seem to be stranded on some planet. You can take my opinion (which is exactly that just an opinion) or you can sit back, relax, and watch the trailer for yourself below:
