'Star Trek Beyond': First trailer signals high-octane, high-stakes tone

Having directed four "Fast & Furious" films to date, Justin Lin has been brought in to helm this third entry to a rebooted "Star Trek" franchise.

Soundtracked by the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" -- a callback to 2009's "Star Trek" -- this new film presents itself as a high-octane, high-stakes feature with room for a well-timed laugh or three.

In that sense the Paramount project is already reminiscent of Marvel's 2014 hit "Guardians of the Galaxy," and shoots for a similar release window: a general international release beckons the week of July 22, 2016.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Karl Urban return, alongside Simon Pegg, who also co-wrote the movie, while Idris Elba ("Luther," "Avengers: Age of Ultron") and Sofia Boutella ("Kingsman; The Secret Service") have also been cast.
