You may be cool…

You may be cool, but you’ll never be Captain Kirk learning his lines while riding a motorcycle cool.

WATCH: War for the Planet of the Apes trailer

The next installment in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise arrives this summer, and 20th Century Fox has just dropped the first trailer.

While the rebooted Apes movies can’t match the iconic 1968 “Planet of the Apes” movie, the new franchise is light years ahead of the old in terms of story and quality (I won’t say special effects because OF COURSE THEY ARE). Andy Serkis’s portrayal of Caesar is phenomenal. He deserves an Oscar.

“War for the Planet of the Apes” stars Serkis and franchise newcomer Woody Harrelson, and follows the events of 2014’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” which saw peace between apes and humans broken, and a final war on the horizon. Caesar, played again by Serkis, and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel (Harrelson). The movie is directed by Matt Reeves and is scheduled to hit theaters July 14.

Bad Lip Reading has successfully turned The Empire Strikes Back into a musical about seagulls.

Star Trek Beyond: A better sneak peak

The second trailer for Star Trek Beyond has premiered, and it’s a much better look at the film than the first one, which seemed indistinguishable from any number of bland, overdone action franchises.

This one adds a few hints of an actual story into the mix, though vague, as is expected. It’s still filled to the brim with action (this is a big-budget franchise tentpole, after all), but the new trailer seems to show there will be a little more than that.

And this time, no Beastie Boys.

Take a look:
