Sep 2: Star Trek Beyond
Rated PG-13 in the States, this is a good one to take your trekkie teenager to. Since JJ Abrams successfully rebooted the franchise seven years ago, Star Trek has resumed ‘boldly going where no man has gone before’ Justin Lin (Fast 5) takes over directorial duties while Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto return for a third time to resume their roles as Captain Kirk and Commander Spock. They are joined by cast regulars Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Karl Urban, while Idris Elba (The Wire) stars as the film’s baddy – the powerful mutated alien creature Krall. The film has already been one of the summer’s biggest successes, grossing over USD195 million worldwide.
