For fans that were worried about Star Trek Beyond after seeing the teaser, Simon Pegg says not to worry.
Pegg explained that of course the trailer would be filled with action, to entice people to go and see the film. “It was very action-packed – yeah, it was surprising,” he said. “I find [the trailer] to be the marketing people saying ‘Everybody come and see this film, it’s full of action and fun!'”
But there will be good stuff in the film for Trek fans. “There’s a lot more to [the movie] than that,” said Pegg. “I didn’t love [the trailer] because I know there’s a lot more to the film. There’s a lot more story, and a lot more character stuff, and a lot more of what I call ‘Star Trek stuff.’
“But, you know, [Paramount has to] bring a big audience in; they’ve got to bang the drum. To the Star Trek fans, I’d say hang in there and be patient.”
