Ramping up to its Summer 2016 release date, it appears that filing for Star Trek Beyond is in full force, and we’ve recently been given some glimpses of international production action from a few amateur photographers and videographers.
It appears that the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is serving as a stand-in for a futuristic city, perhaps the home of Starfleet Command headquarters itself, the city of San Francisco. According to a press conference with cast and crew a few weeks ago, shooting is happening around the city and in studio for two full weeks. Primary cast members Chris Pine (James T. Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Karl Urban (Leonard “Bones” McCoy), Simon Pegg (Montgomery “Scotty” Scott), Anton Yelchin (Pavel Chekov), and Idris Elba (unnamed villain) are all on location for filming.
Check out the photo and videos below – note the green screens and rubble in many of the shots, likely indicating that we’re witnessing snippets of either a battle or the immediate aftermath. Star Trek Beyond opens July 22, 2016.
