In an exclusive video director Justin Lin, Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana talk about making Star Trek Beyond.Dolby has released an exclusive video about the making of Star Trek Beyond, which features director Justin Lin, actor/writer and Simon Pegg, and actress Zoe Saldana, who plays Lieutenant Uhura. Lin is known for his work on the Fast & Furious series.

Directing one of Hollywood’s biggest franchise films is no easy task with so many pieces that had to come together – including sound design – to make the action-packed film resonate with audiences. Lin was well aware of the challenge.

“The Enterprise is more than just a ship,” he said. “It’s a vessel that basically has bonded us and all of these characters for 50 years. Sonically, as we design a shot, as we design a scene, it [sound] is not just about levels and stuff. It was about feeling. It’s emotional. With Dolby, we have more tools available to us than ever. As a filmmaker, the aesthetic has evolved to be able to build these moments.” 

Star Trek Beyond’s debut earned $59.6 million and a sequel is on the horizon.
