‘Star Trek Beyond’ Set Photos Reveal New Alien Species | Film News
Filming for Justin Lin’s (Fast Five) Star Trek Beyond is underway in Vancouver where candid shots from the set found their way online revealing our first look at a new species to the Star Trek universe. The image shows actress Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service) made-up as a distinct looking white alien with black tribal tattoos that are reminiscent of the famous Klingon species from the TV series.
However the species are most-likely unrelated as reports have promised an original species for the reboot’s third outing, which has so far relied heavily on enemies from the TV shows. I am sure that the character will prove more than a match for Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) as previously reported by Film Divider who revealed that Star Trek Beyond will see the USS Enterprise captain meet another Starfleet captain who is “being set up as Kirk’s match“.
Another image shows Pine dressed in traditional ‘Away team’ landing gear that bares similarities to the outfit wore by William Shatner (Star Trek) in the original series pilot episode ‘The Cage’. With Idris Elba (The Wire, Luther, Thor) set to play the sequel’s, as of yet, unannounced villain and the recent inclusions of Joe Taslim (The Raid Redemption, Fast & Furious 6) and Lydia Wilson (Never Let Me Go), production seems to be kicking it into warp drive in time for its 2016 release.
With broad taste in TV from the WWE to Pretty Little Liars with a sprinkling of The 100 thrown in, Its safe to say I'm a mixed bag.
My favourite film changes on a dime but has been known to include Fight Club, The Departed, Black Swan and even The Hunger Games.
And not forgetting Empire Strikes Back ... but thats a given, right?
