In this sequel to JJ Abrams’s 2009 revamp of the Star Trek franchise, Starfleet is rocked by a terrorist attack in London masterminded by the mysterious John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch).

James T Kirk (Chris Pine) who has been stripped of his captaincy and now serves under his mentor, Rear Admiral Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood), becomes embroiled in the hunt for Harrison led by Admiral Marcus (Peter Weller).

Harrison doesn’t intend to surrender, so Kirk gives chase flanked by Spock (Zachary Quinto), communications officer Uhura (Zoe Saldana), navigator Pavel Chekov (Anton Yelchin), chief medical officer Dr Leonard McCoy, chief engineer Montgomery Scott (Simon Pegg) and helmsman Sulu .

The crew races against time to stop Harrison from obliterating everyone they hold dear but success hinges on the ultimate sacrifice.

It’s on at the Futurist, Scarborough.
