In ‘Star Trek Beyond,’ Idris Elba’s Krall Will Be A Villain Unlike Any You’ve Seen Before

Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin has shed some light on the film’s central villain. While the plot is still shrouded in mystery, the sci-fi flick will see Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto reprise their roles as Captain James T. Kirk and Commander Spock, with Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, John Cho and Anton Yelchin also starring. But it’s the addition of Idris Elba to the cast that is making waves, with Justin shedding some light on what fans can expect from the British actor’s take on the villainous Krall – one of the main antagonists in the upcoming movie. “It definitely is not a character you’ve seen before,” Justin told Collider. “For me it was important because this film would not exist without this character. And I feel like it was important when I had that first meeting, and once I decided what journey this film should take, it really was hinged off, again, this antagonist’s philosophy. And so, that’s one of the things, and also getting one of Idris’ calibre and talent has been amazing.” The Taiwanese American director continued to emphasise how Krall would challenge the Federation philosophy “in a very valid way”. He also touched on how he approaches his films and the means he goes about directing them..
