In just five short days, Star Trek Beyond will hit theaters, and it has already gotten plenty of high praise in early reactions from several of the nation's critics. Of course, we'll have to wait until July 22 to find out how fans across the world respond to this sequel, but to get everyone read for this release, a new TV spot has debuted, which features Idris Elba as the villainous Krall. However, this video features a much different look at this character.
We have previously seen Krall in a number of trailers and and other pieces of footage, but this TV spot reveals Krall offering a warning, that the Federation may never see him again, but if they do, they should "be ready." The most interesting thing is that Krall delivers this message in a human form, looking much different than the alien creature Krall we've seen in the past. We'll have to wait and see how Krall's journey unfolds on the big screen.
Idris Elba teased in a preview last week that this villain is incredibly complex, while director Justin Lin adds that he wanted a character that will "deconstruct the Federation's ideals" in a way that still seems valid. Simon Pegg teased that they wanted a "complex reason" of why he's such a bad guy, while Idris Elba adds that he's damaged but fans will feel empathy towards him. Finally, Chris Pine reveals that Idris Elba brings an "incredible amount of nuance" to the role, describing Krall as a "soloist" and a "nihilist." Hopefully we'll see more footage of Krall in the next few days as we wait for Star Trek Beyond to open in theaters.
