Rihanna Debuts New Single in Latest ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Trailer

By Tom Lafferty

So apparently pop music culture and sci-fi nerd culture is beginning to mix in the latest entry of the new ‘Star Trek’ movie series, ‘Star Trek Beyond’.

Rihanna’s latest single ‘Sledgehammer’ will be included in the movie’s soundtrack and has already been used in its latest trailer which was uploaded to YouTube today and can be watched online. The full song is also available to listen on Spotify below.

The movie will be coming out in US and the UK cinemas on 22nd July.

Looking back at the first trailer for the movie, the contrast in relation with the new trailer is almost like night and day. The first trailer went for the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ sci-fi comedy approach, which did not sit well with hardcore or casual fans alike. However, with the use of Rihanna’s new single, the trailer has a more cinematic and serious tone, which seems to be splitting the vote at least.
