Do we have another Star Trek Into Darkness on our hands?
By all indications, if the below Twitter reactions to the Star Trek Beyond trailer are anything to go by, Paramount has another bomb on their hands.

Check out the tweets, which includes some of mine as well as Hollywood and DC Comics writer Max Landis, as well as followers of Cosmic Book News on Twitter.
"Star Trek Beyond" has a July 22, 2016 release directed by Justin Lin starring Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Sofia Boutella and Idris Elba.
