For those who missed Star Trek Beyond in theaters, or just want to see it again in the comfort of your own home, this sci-fi sequel is currently available on Digital HD, before it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD formats November 1. Today we have a new gag reel from Star Trek Beyond, which showcases your typical bloopers fare like the cast flubbing their lines, along with a special treat for Trekkies young and old. The video offers a glimpse at Chris Pine showcasing his best William Shatner impersonation.
Yahoo! Movies debuted this gag reel, which includes a brief scene where Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk delivers a line that sounds eerily similar to the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner. John Cho notices it right away, while Chris Pine teases that the next line will be “full Shat,” although we don’t get to see that next line being delivered. Other highlights of this 90-second gag reel include Greg Grunberg screwing up a line, while Kirk and Bones (Karl Urban) share a bottle of whiskey found in Chekov’s locker.
We also see more of the late Anton Yelchin in this gag reel, although we don’t see him flub any lines directly. The beloved actor passed away just weeks before Star Trek Beyond opened in theaters this July, with the actor remembered in a tribute at the end of the film, alongside Leonard Nimoy. It was recently confirmed that the franchise will not re-cast the role of Chekov in future installments of the Star Trek franchise.
Star Trek Beyond, the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (The Fast and the Furious franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In Beyond, the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
Chris Pine leads the all-star cast as Captain Kirk, along with Zachary Quinto as Spock, Zoë Saldana as Uhura, Karl Urban as Bones, John Cho as Sulu, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Anton Yelchin as Chekov and Idris Elba as the new villain Krall. Directed by Justin Lin, the third film in the franchise series is produced by J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci, Lindsey Weber and Lin; and executive produced by Jeffrey Chernov, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Tommy Harper. Based upon the Star Trek TV series created by Gene Roddenberry, the screenplay is written by Pegg & Doug Jung. Take a look at this gag reel for Star Trek Beyond, to get ready for the Digital HD and Blu-ray release.
