Dubai is taking centre stage yet again as Star Trek releases the first trailer, featuring the city in a cloud of smoke. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the official teaser...

Star Trek Beyond has just released its first ever trailer starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Idris Elba, and the crew of the Enterprise have travelled the world to capture the cosmic story. From Seoul to Vancouver and Dubai, parts of the film, which were shot in the city this October, zoom in on Sheikh Zayed Road and Dubai International Financial Centre. Of the two locations, Shiekh Zayed Road appeared prominently in the trailer, with several familiar buildings from the Downtown area emerging from the mist around the 59 second mark.

Star Trek Beyond joins Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jackie Chan's Kung Fu Yoga as movies that have featured the UAE.

Star Trek Beyond will be released July 22, 2016.
