Star Trek Beyond has been filming in Vancouver for the last month, but has been doing most of its work indoors, where prying eyes can’t get an early look at the new costumes and new characters. Well, that all changed this week as director Justin Lin took the Star Trek cast and crew outside to shoot a big action scene and we’ve got an exclusive first look at the film, including the new Starfleet uniforms and a major new character in the franchise!

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Director J.J. Abrams Says Simon Pegg Helped With the Script

Thanks to the behind the scenes reel from Comic-Con, we know Simon Pegg has a small part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — he’s completely suited-up from head to toe as an alien, though, so you won’t have an easy time spotting him in the film. Pegg’s eagerness to have such a minor, unrecognizable background role is proof enough of his fandom, but apparently his involvement goes much deeper than that.

Simon Pegg Ranks the ‘Star Wars’ Films in Under a Minute

As was confirmed in the behind the scenes featurette at Comic-Con, we know that Simon Pegg has a minor role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — it’s not one you’ll notice when the film hits theaters, since the actor was entirely covered in an alien costume. But the fact that Pegg wanted to appear in the film, even in a totally unnoticeable part, is proof positive of his Star Wars fandom. In the spirit of that fandom, Pegg sat down for an interview where he ranked all six of the previous Star Wars films.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation hits theaters this week, and it’s already been earning crazy good reviews for the latest installment in Tom Cruise’s action-packed franchise. There’s plenty to love in the sequel, in which Cruise continues to fully dedicate himself to some insane stunts. But as with most films, there were some pretty awesome scenes that hit the cutting room floor due to time, like this 10-minute scene with Alec Baldwin described by director Christopher McQuarrie.

‘Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation’ Review: After 20 Years, This Franchise Is Still Improbably Good

Alec Baldwin is just four years older than Tom Cruise. In the mid-’90s, they were both action stars. When the first Mission: Impossible movie came out in 1996, it would not have been inconceivable in the slightest for Baldwin to play super-spy Ethan Hunt; Baldwin was the first actor to play the role of super-spy Jack Ryan in 1990’s The Hunt For Red October; in 1994, he headlined a pair of big Hollywood productions, The Shadow and The Getaway.

As confirmed by that behind the scenes footage that debuted at Comic-Con, we know that Simon Pegg has a cameo role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — okay, it’s not so much a cameo as it is a minor, unrecognizable background role. It wasn’t long ago that Pegg himself revealed that Daniel Craig is playing a Stormtrooper in the film, but what does Craig himself have to say about that? “F—king hell!”
