When Bob Orci left the director’s chair on Star Trek Beyond, we all kind of assumed that there might be some delay in the film’s originally scheduled release — as it turns out, that delay isn’t as big as you may have feared. Paramount has announced that the third installment in the franchise will now hit theaters two weeks later than previously planned.
We’re still a little less than two years out from the release of Wonder Woman, DC and WB’s first solo female superhero film, but production is already set to begin this fall with director Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine — which means it’s only a matter of months before set photos begin trickling out to the delight of the entire internet.
The Omaze Star Trek Beyond charity campaign is still going strong, and there’s still one week left for you to donate $10 for the chance to win a set visit and a walk-on role. The latest promotional video from the set of Star Trek Beyond pays tribute to the late, great Leonard Nimoy, with an appropriate Spock salute.
The other day we brought you the exclusive first images and video from the set of Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond, featuring Chris Pine’s Captain Kirk, Anton Yelchin’s Chekov, Simon Pegg’s Scotty and newcomer Sofia Boutella’s mysterious new alien character. That video was yanked by Paramount, but the studio has allowed it to come back online, giving you the first real look at the highly-anticipated sequel.
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!
All we know of Idris Elba’s part in Star Trek Beyond is that he’s playing a bad guy, and while the latest video for the film’s charity drive / contest doesn’t offer any more hints, it does feature Elba and co-star Chris Pine arguing over Captain Kirk’s chair and having a bit of a pissing contest. Maybe the third Star Trek film should be nothing but these two charmingly bickering.
A while back we heard talk of Chris Pine potentially starring in Wonder Woman opposite Gal Gadot, but then we also heard some rumors about Pine potentially playing one of the leading superhero roles in Green Lantern Corps — that seemed to confirm that Pine was in talks to star in something for Warner Bros. and DC, and now it’s been made official. Pine will play Diana Prince’s love interest in Wonder Woman.
Half the gag of Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer revival lies in actors having (visibly) aged an additional 14 years since the 2001 cult classic, despite playing the same characters on their First Day of Camp. Now, a new featurette for Netflix revival sees the cast reflecting on the decade-plus gap, including that mystery which eludes us all: Why doesn’t Paul Rudd age?
This delightful new video from the set of Star Trek Beyond offers fans a chance to boldly go where no Star Trek fan has gone before — with a walk-on role in the upcoming sequel. But this isn’t your average contest. Fans are encouraged to contribute to the Omaze charity fundraiser in order to participate, meaning that your goodwill could earn you a very good time.
There’s something old fashioned and endearing about the trailer for The Finest Hours that makes us forgive its obvious sins. Like the CGI that doesn’t look quite up to snuff just yet. Or an unfortunate song choice. Or the thick Bah-stun accents that Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Eric Bana are saddled with. But who are we to say no to the totally true tale of a brave Coast Guard who sets out to rescue the crew of an oil tanker that has split in half while a deadly storm rages all around him? That would be like saying no to baseball and apple pie.
