As you all know, I am a movie buff and so it goes without saying that I had been waiting for the movie Star Trek – Beyond. It is is a science fiction action film, a genre which I enjoy. It is the 13th movie in The Star Trek Film Franchise, and it released in India on 22nd July 2016. (Though I had booked my tickets way before the movie released) The movie is directed by Mr. Justin Lin and it has been done spectacularly.
India has always enjoyed and loved Star Trek and this craze was taken to the next level this year by the promotions done. In terms of reaching out to the audience, they did a unique activation event at Mumbai where a remote-controlled spaceship had been displayed. It was a delight to watch and people, particularly youth and kids, were seen having a fun time, as evident in the picture below. The youth has been quite charged up to watch this movie which is seen in the cinema halls and the updates on social media.
Mr. Justin Lin, the director of this movie, is a Taiwanese American film director whose films have grossed $2 billion worldwide. He is best known for his work on Better Luck Tomorrow, The Fast and the Furious 3–6 and the second season of the television series True Detective. His direction in this movie has set a benchmark for all film makers.
Star Trek Beyond has received exceptional feedback from the critics and viewers, both abroad and in India. The reviews are not only positive, but also go on to say it to be one of the best movies EVER of this franchise and a MUST WATCH at that! By personal experience, I enjoyed it and I would like to highlight that the graphics and animations are a delight to watch!
I wouldn’t be exclaimed if this movie sets a new benchmark for box office collections and becomes an all time favorite for a lot of people. If you haven’t yet watched it, do go soon and share your feedback below or on social media with #StarTrekInIndia hashtag.
