It’s fair to say that the trailer for Star Trek Beyond was not greeted with universal enthusiasm, but what about the original series crew themselves? Thanks to Vernon Wilmer, we have their reactions direct from the bridge of the Enterprise.
Even Simon Pegg, who stars as Scotty and co-wrote the script, ‘didn’t love’ the trailer.
“It was very action packed. I find it to be the marketing people to be ‘everybody come and see this film, it’s full of action and fun’, when there’s a lot more to it than that. I didn’t love it because I know there’s a lot more to the film.”
“There’s a lot more, what I would call, ‘Star Trek stuff’.”
So there you go. Hopefully the next Star Trek trailer seems a bit more…well, Star Trek.
