Star Trek Beyond to Debut Trailer Ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Every studio is clamoring for a trailer spot ahead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the first winner has just been revealed. Paramount will unveil the first promo for Star Trek Beyond alongside their sworn enemy franchise.

This doesn't come as too much of a surprise; although Star Wars and Star Trek fans are always arguing, there is still a huge overlap in demographic. Plus, Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams probably has a soft spot for the rebooted Star Trek franchise, since he directed the first two films in the series.

No other trailers have officially been announced yet, but it's likely that some of Disney's upcoming blockbusters will snag a spot, especially Captain America: Civil War. Other huge tentpoles that will likely prevail are Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Huntsman's Winter War, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18, while Star Trek Beyond opens on July 22, 2016.
