TRAILER: Dubai features in new Star Trek Beyond trailer



The second trailer for Star Trek Beyond was released on YouTube this weekend, and we can finally get a closer glimpse at some of the much-anticipated Dubai scenes.

DIFC probably features in the most exciting piece of action, as we see people running through the area with smoke in the background. Another sweeping shot shows the Burj Khalifa (which has been edited to look very different from the Burj we know), while JLT also provides a backdrop.

The shots are blink-and-you’ll-miss-them short, but it’s still pretty cool to get a second look at the result of all the filming that took place in Dubai last year.

We know that much of the Dubai filming was done on location in JLT and DIFC, as well as Studio City, however, we don’t know what role Dubai will have in the film, other than comments to suggest that it’s a city of the future.“We came searching for the future and we found it in Dubai,” said Jeffrey Cernov, Executive Producer of Star Trek Beyond at the film’spress conference in September.

He was joined by Director, Justin Lin, and leading actors Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba and Chris Pine, who added “This is such a stunning city, it’s the future land.”

We’re sure that most of the city will make a visit to the cinema for the film’s release just to catch a few clips of Dubai on the big screen – “resistance is futile”, as they say.
