26 May 2016 6:46 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Paramount held a special fan event at their studio lot in Hollywood, where the beloved Star Trek franchise was honored, as part of its 50th Anniversary celebration. The festivities included the dedicating of a street to franchise icon Leonard Nimoy, before fans all over the world got to see the new trailer for Star Trek Beyond. There is one particular aspect of the trailer that some fans have been wondering about, but, thankfully, star/screenwriter Simon Pegg helped shed some light on this in a new interview.

The trailer featured a shot that showcased a large space station, although it was never fully revealed what this facility is. During an interview with IGN, Simon Pegg revealed that this facility is known as the Starbase Yorktown, which essentially marks the very edge of Federation jurisdiction, with everything outside of this base marking uncharted enemy territory. The movie basically starts with the U. »

Quinto Ensures Nimoy's Spirit Thrives In 'Beyond'

25 May 2016 1:24 AM, PDT | | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Zachary Quinto knew the moment he signed up to play Spock in the rebooted Star Trek film franchise, he'd have big shoes to fill. But it didn't become fully apparent to him until he met the man who made Spock, well, Spock for nearly 50 years: Leonard Nimoy.More than a year after his passing, Quinto says he still misses the actor who quickly became a friend. And even started adopting some of Nimoy's on-set practices like never conducting interviews while in the Spock character."I would say my connection to the character is deeper now because of our relationship," Quinto told io9 reporter Germain Lussier. "I feel a real responsibility to honor him and to do the character a real kind of justice. So I think my connection to that is a lot stronger now, though he's not with us anymore."How and if »

Trekkies and Trekkers stormed the gates of Paramount Pictures last Friday night for the ultimate fan event, and Famous Monsters was front and center for all of the excitement.

Pitched as “a special evening in celebration of Star Trek Beyond,” the night was full of unexpected treats for fans, who were promised a first look at the new, full trailer for the film, plus “special guests” and other surprises. All were invited to step into historic Stage 31 — where Star Trek (The Original Series) filmed a majority of its scenes over its three-year run between 1966-1969 — through a recreated U.S.S. Enterprise hallway, leading into a theater-in-the-round–styled stage. Mythbusters star Adam Savage hosted the event, which opened with a tribute video to Trek. Stars including Rihanna, Stephen Colbert, and mohawked Nasa mission controller Bobak Ferdowsi shared their favorite memories of the influential show —alongside Trek stars Zoe Saldana and Simon Pegg — and a brand-new, »

Star Trek Fan Film Lawsuit Dropped by Paramount

22 May 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the iconic Star Trek franchise, which was celebrated this weekend during a fan event on the Paramount Pictures lot, where the new trailer for Star Trek Beyond debuted. The event also featured a tribute to the late great Leonard Nimoy, where a street was named in his honor on the lot. Producer J.J. Abrams, director Justin Lin and cast members such as Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Karl Urban were also on hand for the event, where J.J. Abrams delivered some news that will make many fans happy.

Back in late December, Paramount Pictures and CBS filed a lawsuit against the producers of the Star Trek fan film Axanar, which had raised over $638,000 through its Kickstarter campaign. The film had been set to start shooting late last year, with Kate Vernon, Richard Hatch, Gary Graham, J.G. Hertzler, Kim Fitzgerald and Alec Peters set to star. »

21 May 2016 2:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As many fans know, this year marks the 50th Anniversary of the iconic Star Trek franchise, which was launched with the original TV series back in 1966. Paramount will help celebrate this milestone with the release of Star Trek Beyond, which takes place during the U.S.S. Enterprise's five-year journey. Last night, a special fan event was held at the Paramount Pictures lot in Los Angeles, where the new trailer debuted. It was also revealed during the fan event that this movie will feature 50 different alien species, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary.

The official Star Trek Twitter page was covering the event live and dropped this tidbit of information, but there were no details revealed about these aliens. It's worth noting that we got a sneak peek at two new aliens last month, when director Justin Lin shared a photo to celebrate First Contact Day. Along with debuting the new trailer last night, »

The Big Bang Theory season 9 episode 21 review: The Viewing Party Combustion

25 April 2016 6:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




The Big Bang Theory lot watch Game Of Thrones in its latest episode, which proves a pleasant surprise...

This review contains spoilers.

9.21 The Viewing Party Combustion

I really wasn't looking forward to this episode. With the exception of The Opening Night Excitation - a tour de force for The Big Bang Theory of the variety it hasn't seen in years, whenever the show tries too hard to be topical, or calls on a piece of geek culture that isn't Star Trek and Leonard Nimoy, it almost always comes off as desperate and cloying.

But The Viewing Party Combustion was actually a really good time – one of those semi bottle episodes that brings everyone together and just plays around with the relationships built over the last nine years. It proves that, when the show realises it's a stupid sitcom about which very few people care (despite its gargantuan »

20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated X-Men: Apocalypse will bring an end to the studio's X-Men prequel trilogy, which includes 2011's X-Men: First Class and 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past.

17 April 2016 11:16 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Along with Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and James Bond but few others, Star Trek is that rare pop-culture franchise that spans generations.

Having its premiere last night at the Tribeca Film Festival, For The Love of Spock is son Adam Nimoy’s tribute to the character of Spock, Star Trek fandom and his dad.

Star Trek Beyond… Anyone Who Cares?

17 April 2016 11:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black discusses Star Trek Beyond, and whether anyone really cares…

If you took a straw poll of the general population, how many of them would know there was a new Star Trek movie dropping this summer? The chances are not nearly as many as there should be. Star Trek Beyond, the third movie of the J.J. Abrams spearheaded revival, has been marketed quite strangely so far, especially for one of the world’s most well-known and lucrative franchises. We have scant knowledge of plot, casting and have been granted just one trailer alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a trailer which went down like a lead balloon with much of the fandom given it played a lot like the Fast & Furious pictures incoming director Justin Lin is famous for. For a movie landing on the 50th anniversary of a beloved property, its remarkably low-key at this stage, as are »

For The Love Of Spock trailer

13 April 2016 10:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




A documentary paying tribute to Leonard Nimoy has its first full trailer...

Just over a year since the still keenly-felt loss of Leonard Nimoy, a documentary remembering his legacy is nearing release.

For The Love Of Spock is directed by Adam Nimoy, Leonard Nimoy's son, and it features interviews with Star Trek figures across the long history of the series. The film is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in the Us later this month, and will then be made available via streaming services primarily later in 2016.

The origins of the project go back to before Leonard Nimoy's death, and here's how Adam Nimoy pitched the project last year on its Kickstarter appeal page...

Last year, just before Thanksgiving, I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books »
