VIDEO: First 'Star Trek Beyond' teaser released

Action-packed trailer gives first glimpse of scenes filmed in Dubai

While we still have a long wait until 'Star Trek Beyond' hits cinemas, fans of the franchise have today been given their first glimpse of what the upcoming sci-fi flick will offer.

The first teaser trailer for the new movie shows the first signs of how 'Fast and Furious' director, Justin Lin, has made the action even bigger than before.

In the clip, Kirk and his crew appear to have lost the Enterprise and head off on an adventure to find their way back. As the hundreds of lucky extras who took part in the movie's filming throughout October will already know, the crew eventually find what they are looking for right here in Dubai.

While it's only a fleeting glance for now, the trailer clearly shows how Dubai was the perfect fit for the 'vertical city' the production team revealed they had been looking for, with a sweeping aerial shot that shows the city styled as a futuristic landscape.

At a press conference at the Burj Al Arab Hotel back in October, the film's producer, Jeffrey Chernov, explained why he had picked Dubai as a filming location for the movie, a shoot that was supported by Dubai TV and Film Commission.

Chernov said: "We came searching for the future and we found it in Dubai. Dubai represents the future of what the frontier would be like in our film, and is an excellent place to shoot the movie as well as a special opportunity for all of us. This is not just the third of three movies, but has a new, refreshing twist, and Dubai’s great visuals really fit the story.”

Star Trek Beyond opens July 22nd, 2016. Watch the trailer below...
