Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has made public a behind-the-scenes video of himself wearing the alien guise he adopts in the latest Star Trek film.

The US businessman is seen in the Vine eating and drinking while wearing the prosthetic head of the Starfleet Official he plays in Star Trek Beyond.

Justin Lin, the film's director, tweeted another photo of Bezos on set.

Bezos joined the film's cast and crew on Wednesday at a pre-Comic Con screening in San Diego, California.

The 52-year-old said Lin and his team were "amazing" and described appearing in the film as a "bucket list" experience - referencing the phrase used to describe a list of things one hopes to accomplish before one's death.

British actress Lydia Wilson plays another alien in the sci-fi sequel, which is released in the UK and US on Friday.
