Is this Idris Elba in ‘Star Trek Beyond’ trailer?

Posted Filed under

The first trailer for the new Star Trek movie has appeared online.

Directed by Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 3-6), the thirteen Star Trek movie – and the third in the rebooted franchise –  arrives in UK cinemas on 22 July 2016.

Star Trek Beyond stars Luther actor Idris Elba as the main villain and, while his voice is definitely present in the trailer, there’s still some doubt over which character he is on screen (if he appears in the trailer at all).

Watch the trailer and decide for yourself…

Elba recently revealed that there is a “slightly different twist” to his character in the movie, commenting: “Simon [Pegg] and the team have written a very interesting, complex journey for my character. You’ve never seen me play a character like this.”
