Orci Says STAR TREK BEYOND Won’t Be Delayed, Pegg Hypes Second Trailer

Simon Pegg and Roberto Orci both took to their respective Twitter accounts this week in preparation to the release of Star Trek Beyond and the film’s much talked about second trailer.

Orci, who co-wrote the third installment of the rebooted film series along with Simon Pegg, Doug Jung, John D. Payne and Patrick McCay, shot down rumors of a delay until September, replying to the question by clearly stating “it wont be delayed.”

Beyond co-writer and star, Simon Pegg hyped the release of the second trailer this Friday, tweeting “3 days until the new trailer drops and Star Trek Beyond goes boldly out of the darkness.”

The next trailer will be unveiled during a special “fan event” on May 20th at Paramount Studio in Los Angeles. Both Pegg and Orci, along with director Justin Lin and other members of the cast and crew are expected to be in attendance.

TrekNews.net will be live at the Star Trek Beyond event and will be reporting throughout.

    That’s good, so we can be over it as soon as possible…

    • milojthatch

      Amen! Just put out DS9 and Voyager on Blu-ray and I’m good.

    • Krazy Joe

      I don’t plan to be over it, I plan to love it to pieces…..unless if it’s crap. But so far there’s no reason to believe it will be crap

      • Spock

        No, no reason at all… except for the first trailer. Oh, and the previous movie. And the questionable selection of director.

        • Jack2211

          Why is it questionable? Lin’s Furious movies were a hot with critics and audiences. They were solid caper pics. And he’s a long time Star Trek fan.

          The biggest sin of the last one was trying too hard to please fans.

          • CommonSense033

            They’re ADHD noise.

    Sadly I am a Star Trek fan and I am not hyped up about this trailer – more frustrated and annoyed and on the mindset of FINALLY.
    Seriously. I said this elsewhere. They are making a mess of this. No one outside of Star Trek fans who are online looking this up know about this movie. I mentioned it at work, to people who had seen Force Awakens in theatres and had seen the Star Trek trailer and they were surprised to hear a new Star Trek movie is coming out.
    A fan event is great and all that. But these dropping h of random pictures and no new trailers. They aren’t even satisfying Star Trek fans. But worse they are not getting the attention of people who aren’t “Trekkies” and that is going to kill the movie. They need to start hyping this movie up and fast to all audiences. When my high school brother and his friends go see a Star Trek movie on its first night opening (2009) I am a fan and I am starting to get frustrated!

    • Krazy Joe

      The trailer was on The Force Awakens.

      Everyone knows about this movie.

      • Kitty Mau

        No they don’t. I asked people I work with who aren’t hardcore Trek fans a and who saw the movie, even remembered vaguely seeing the trailer after I reminded them but initially they had completely forgotten about the upcoming Star Trek movie.

    • Jack2211

      Fans have had the same complaints and worries for the previous Bad Robot Trek movies too. And they did well.

      I’ve gone to see plenty of movies that I hadn’t heard of six months, or two months, or even a week, before.

      It’s May. Nobody’s really promoting July movies yet. Trust me, it’ll be everywhere and people will know it’s in theatres.

      As long as the fan bike on the Internet doesn’t become the story and scare people away.

  • LibsAreWrong

    The 50th anniversary is being spit upon by this garbage. No hype at all. That spells trouble. If the new trailer blows, then it’s over. By the way, Why is Orci even speaking about this movie? He should have been banished as even Roddenberry was after ST:TMP was a disaster. It made money, but it did in the first few weeks of release.

    • Krazy Joe

      And who says it’s garbage? We certainly don’t know that.

    • Jack2211

      Yep, not until September. And they’re releasing a blockbuster movie and a new series. People know Trek is 50.

      It’s May. They don’t promote late summer movies now. Trust me, Trek will be everywhere in about 6 weeks.

  • Paul R. Faulkner

    I’m confused. .. wasn’t Orci taken off the film because his treatment was too “Treky,” and Pegg and co basically starting over from ground zero as it were?
    All I know is all I wanted to see for the 50th anniversary was Shatner &Nimoy as Kirk and Spock together one last time. And all this delay made sure that would never be possible again.
    Its sad. There were sooo many opportunities lost. :/

    • Krazy Joe

      That would never have been possible. Nimoy died a year ago.

    • Jack2211

      He’s still a producer.

  • Eric Cheung

    Boldly out of the darkness?

    The destruction of the Enterprise, and the presence of a villain, suggest otherwise, but man do I hope so.

    • Jack2211

      Movies have villains. If it makes sense, I don’t care.

      Although I’d love to see a more complicated antagonist. Or maybe a group thing – like the Empire/First Order in Star Wars, but more subtly shaded. And with conflict within.

      • Eric Cheung

        There are lots of movies without villains. Person vs. person is only one of many story archetypes. Look at Gravity, Interstellar, Star Trek IV, and The Martian, for hit sci-fi films without villains. Even films with the person vs. person template could have antagonists instead of villains, characters that ha opposing views or needs that meet in the middle with the protagonists. Those were always the best Trek stories, like Arena, The Corbomite Maneuver, and Balance of Terror.

    oy… so much negativity… some trek fans have just died inside. i feel bad for you guys. you’re never happy. pegg is awesome. lin is awesome. let’s remember what trek was like 10 years ago. remember? it was dead like some of the fans are now. last show (enterprise) sucked. last movie (nemesis) sucked. both flopped. we now have a third movie coming out… last 2 were big hits critically and at the worldwide boxoffice. 400 and 500 million and 91 and 87 on rotten tomatoes. a new series is coming. but so many fans are just miserable. it’s crazy.

    i actually won my tickets for the fanfest… 4 in fact and me and my buds are going. the trailer’s gonna be really good… the movie is gonna be super fun. no one promotes a late july movie before mid may… at this point most of the late july movies have one trailer. that’s it. trek has the teaser from all the way back in december. new one this week. by time it comes out everyone will know.

    and who is suggesting they are delaying the release till September? why did orci have to deny it? there was a forbes article last year that suggested a sept release would be better… you’d be away form the blockbuster competition in the summer and be on the date of the actual 50th anniversary. but you would also not have the college kids and strong week day grosses. deadpool did great not in summer so it’s not a bad idea. i think it’s too late to change course though.

    • Botany Cameos

      Paramount pushed the brazilian release of Beyond to September, and as a result some people panicked assuming the US release would be pushed back too, which is of course not the case.

      • dommyinlosangeles

        thank you

  • Arron Bubba Ratcliff

    I’m 40 years old. i have been a Trekkie since i was 4 years old and saw my first episode of the original series.These last couple of Reboot movies haven’t exactly filled me with joy.The first trailer for this new movie did nothing to improve my opinion.I hope the new trailer when it comes out later this week will give me some sign of hope that i might like it.If not I’ll just hold out till the new series airs in 2017.

    • CommonSense033

      It will be on CBS.

      That means it will have a minority captain who constantly mentions race, a gay or tranny who constantly mentions that, and they won’t be able to explore strange new worlds. They’ll have to stay in their safe space.

      • I am not Herbert

        nu-trek fan? i can tell by your bigotry =(

      • Arron Bubba Ratcliff

        Wow dude or ma’am that’s harsh. like i said i been a Trekkie for 36 years.I don’t care who is part of the crew or what they do in their personal lives.As long as the stories are interesting and well written and the special effects are good I don’t care about any thing else.I’m more then willing to boldly go where no human has gone before.

        • CommonSense033

          Oh they’ll do that, for sure. Just not in the way you’re hoping for.

  • CommonSense033

    2 Trek 2 Furious.

  • I am not Herbert

    …if u believe anything boborci says, u r a fool =(

    i loved pegg when he was younger, now he’s just a jj-loyalist =(
