It looks like Star Trek will be riding on the success of Star Wars. It's been reported that Paramount have secured a spot during the Force Awakens movie trailers to show a promo for Star Trek Beyond which hits cinemas July next year. Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits cinemas December 18th although some countries will be showing the movie a day early.
Hollywood Reporter broke the news and they tell us:
It's no surprise that the latest installment in the Star Trek series would get favored treatment. Abrams, whose Bad Robot production company is based at Paramount, produced Star Trek Beyond after directing the first two films in the revitalized franchise, Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013).
Other 2016 tentpoles likely to secure trailer placement include Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (March 25), Universal's The Huntsman's Winter War (April 22), X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27) and Independence Day: Resurgence (June 24). The latter two are both from Fox.
And that doesn't include potential promos from Disney, whether The Jungle Book (April 15), Captain America: Civil War (May 6) or Finding Dory (June 17).
