Sci-fi Dubai

New shots of city ap­pear in lat­est Star Trek trailer

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

With just weeks to go un­til the pre­miere of the lat­est Star Trek movie, fans got another glimpse of how Dubai will look in the block­buster.

Star Trek Be­yond is due to be re­leased next month and in­cludes scenes that were shot in the city last year.

The third trailer for the third film in the re­booted sci-fi fran­chise was re­leased yes­ter­day by Para­mount Pic­tures. The open­ing scene fea­tures a shot of peo­ple walk­ing through a square by a lake.

In the back­ground is the fa­mil­iar look­ing shape of a Dubai Metro sta­tion.

The cast and crew of the movie, in­clud­ing Chris Pine, Zach Quinto and Simon Pegg, were in Dubai in Oc­to­ber, shoot­ing at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing Dubai In­ter­na­tional Fi­nan­cial Cen­tre (DIFC).

Nu­mer­ous ex­tras were hired lo­cally for the pro­duc­tion and have been ea­gerly wait­ing to see if they make the cut.

Scenes of Dubai have ap­peared in ear­lier trail­ers, in­clud­ing in the very first pre­view where view­ers can see an aerial view of Dubai and shots of peo­ple flee­ing through a plaza in DIFC.

The re­lease of the film, though, is tinged with sad­ness as one of the stars died ear­lier this month. An­ton Yelchin, 27, who played Chekov in the se­ries, died in an ac­ci­dent on June 19 when he was pinned be­tween a mail­box pil­lar and fence by his car at his home in Los An­ge­les.
