It’s fair to say that the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond wasn’t the biggest of hits with fans of the franchise; the response from our writers in the Flickering Myth Reaction was mixed at best, both Wil Wheaton and George Takei weren’t overly impressed, and it seems that star and co-writer Simon Pegg wasn’t the biggest fan either.
“I didn’t love it, because I know there’s a lot more to the film,” Pegg told HeyUGuys during the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in London. “It was very action-packed. It was surprising. I kind of find it to be the marketing people sorta saying, ‘Everybody come and see this film, it’s full of action and fun,’ when there’s a lot more to it than that. There’s a lot more story and a lot more character stuff, and a lot more, what I would call ‘Star Trek stuff’. To the Star Trek fans I’d say ‘Hang in there. Be patient.'”
