“Star Trek Beyond” is set to release on July 8, 2016. Principal photography has just begun on June 25, 2015 in Vancouver and Squamish, British Columbia. There had been a lot of delay in filming as the script has been rejected many times.

The new movie by the franchise “Star Trek Beyond” is believed to be in hardcore science fiction. Since, “Star Trek Beyond” will be releasing on the TV show’s 50th anniversary, it will have more than one cameo. There is for sure going to be a tribute for Nimoy and may be we’ll see Shatner too.
