The U.S.S. Enterprise crew warp into another spectacular adventure as the rebooted series continues.
Struggling to come to terms with his father’s formidable legacy, Kirk (Chris Pine) is still adjusting to the role of Captain and leader. Standing alongside him is half-human, half-Vulcan Spock (Zachary Quinto), communications officer Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Dr Bones (Karl Urban) and engineer Scotty (Simon Pegg). But when the Enterprise comes under attack from deadly new enemy Krall (Idris Elba), the entire crew is plunged into another nail-biting battle for survival.
Following J.J. Abrams’ smash-hit 2009 reboot of the iconic Star Trek franchise and its 2013 sequel Into Darkness, the franchise now takes an exciting new direction to mark its 50th anniversary. Fast and Furious director Justin Lin takes over from Abrams at the helm whilst Simon Pegg co-writes the script with Doug Jung. Also featuring in the cast is kick-ass Kingsman star Sofia Boutella as alien warrior Jaylah.
