Early reactions to Star Trek Beyond are out of this world

07.14.2016

When it comes to a franchise like STAR TREK, anything less than (inter)stellar is not acceptable. Thankfully, the last two installments, STAR TREK and STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS have gone over smoothly with fans and critics alike, delivering two of the best films in the whole cinematic series.

Now with only a week to go before the release of the highly-anticipated third entry, STAR TREK BEYOND, many are clamoring to hear what people have to say. Considering some shakeups behind the camera and the abysmal reception to the first trailer some may have dire need to have their questions answered. Is it bad? Is it good? Is this the end of the series? Should I see it?! I need guidance!

But fear not, as some lucky folks have gotten to see the movie, and have graced Twitter with their responses.

Although, you can't please everyone...

Though I myself can't help but feel doubtful about these “early reactions” (see BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN and FANTASTIC FOUR), most of the time they do end up representing the overall consensus once the bulk of reviews come in. That being said, these early audience reviews mean we can expect a fun, hilarious and emotional space adventure. I mean, these people don’t have reason to lie, right? Unless they were promised real laser guns in exchange for a positive tweet. Jeez, they just give those things away nowadays.

STAR TREK BEYOND warps into theaters July 22, but in the meantime check out our forecast of the movie below!

I never trust early reviews

I loved the first movie, I liked the second one... I won't mind seeing the third one. I just think early reviews are full of bandwagoners that are most likely excited about being "FIRST!" and/or just have opinions that are drastically different from mine more often than not.

The first one was fun. I never bothered with the second one because I already saw Wrath of Kahn decades ago, so it didn't interest me. But this one might get me to pay a matinee admission.

Early reviews are the worst

Beyond will rock!

Another lazy writer who felt the need to once again take a shot at BVS and the nerve to put it in the same sentence as Fantastic Four! Let it go already seriously it's annoying! Every damn article they use BVS for click bait even on topics that have nothing to do with a comic movie! Beyond is going to rock!

Easily the best one in the trilogy

What a wild and fun ride. Yes, it tries to copy the tone of Guardians of the Galaxy a bit, making this more of an adventure movie than the last two and the humor is ramped up a bit as well. But really it could walk away being in the top 3 summer movies.

These reactions are from critics.

Unlike BvS which had reactions from "fans".

I think it will be a fun movie overall, but I find it weird that every single movie, whether it turns out to be good or bad, have great early reactions.

Here we go again with early reactions. I'll wait for actual reviews.

I enjoyed Star Trek, but Into Darkness was a really bad attempt to replicate Wrath of Khan with some modern elements of domestic and international terrorism thrown into the mix--especially with whitewashed Khan. I really want Beyond to return the franchise to its more exploratory roots with new alien species and greater threats that don't take place on Earth. So far, it looks like that's the direction they're heading in which I'm happy to see. I will be catching this opening weekend.

I don't really trust these at all. Not that I think (or want) this movie to be bad. But I think most of these "movie-fan" reviews are a bit skewed by the fact Simon Pegg was in attendance. Perhaps they have some celebrity blinders on while watching the movie. I know it would definitely skew my opinion if I attended a Q&A with one of the stars of the film right before watching the film.

Early reactions aside, which are meaningless in my opinion. This is really the only movie that I've wanted to see, which I feel like I know nothing about from the marketing. Which is rare nowadays.

Early reactions are pointless. Also, JJ Abrams has fucked Star Trek up beyond reasonable recognition. This movie had better be good or it should just be rebooted again after this.

Can we just stop posting "early reactions"?
They're always utterly useless and are never an actual measurement of anything.

Early reactions sure seem to be great for ANY movie these days. I hope it's true here but they seriously need to stop with these early reaction shit. EVERY MOVIE has well received "Early Reactions" and some do poorly at the box office. Seems more ploy to garner interest than actual fact.

The most impressive thing about these new star trek movies to me is just how quickly they are forgotten - it already feels like this one was released and faded into obscurity like the previous two.

My wife said this same thing last night. While I liked the first 2, they are definitely not movies I think of often nor do I feel the need to watch them again.
