Watch the final trailer for Star Trek Beyond, featuring “Sledgehammer” by Rihanna.
While the first trailer for the new Star Trek film seemed impossible to decipher, the final trailer is a lot more grounded and exciting. R&B pop star Rihanna’s new single Sledgehammer is featured as the soundtrack and surprisingly adds weight to the footage.
