It’s been a good year for Idris Elba. After lending his voice to The Jungle Book, the British actor landed the lead role in The Dark Tower movie and will next be seen as the main villain in Star Trek Beyond. There, he plays Krall, a mysterious new baddie who hopes to bring down the USS Enterprise.
In this new fearurette, Elba takes us into the mind of Krall, shedding some light on what will make him a memorable villain. Other members of the cast and crew also weigh in on his role here, giving us a good idea of what to expect in a few weeks’ time.
Star Trek Beyond features the return of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin and John Cho along with new roles for Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella and Joe Taslim. J.J. Abrams, who directed the last two films, is producing the third entry in the rebooted franchise, while Justin Lin is directing from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung.
Star Trek Beyond is set to reach the big screen on July 22nd, just a few weeks before the franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary.
