Destroy All Monsters: First Contact Is When Star Trek Sold Out

27 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Look at them guns! That's Patrick Stewart in 1996's Star Trek: First Contact, a movie which had a lot of actual guns in it, too, arming the crew of the Starship Enterprise with their own skinny version of the pulse rifle from Aliens (with a little headlight!) and sending them on a bug hunt in the bowels of their own ship. But Patrick Stewart with his shirt off, Die Hard style? Sure, that too. First Contact is also, beyond question, the moment Star Trek gave up and sold out. With Star Trek Beyond in theatres, I'm thinking a lot about what Star Trek can and can't be on the big screen. In his excellent 12-part revisit of the Trek feature film franchise over on EW,...

Comic-Con: Trailer for FX’s ‘Legion’ Revealed (Watch)

FX released a sneak peek of their upcoming X-Men series “Legion” at Comic-Con on Saturday.

Legion” follows David Haller (played by Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and visions might be real.

In Marvel Comics canon, David is Professor Charles Xavier’s mutant son. Xavier has been portrayed by Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy in the “X-Men” franchise on the big screen, but the films have yet to introduce Haller into the cinematic universe.

The series also stars Rachel KellerJean SmartKatie AseltonJeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, along with Bill Irwin and Aubrey Plaza.

Star Trek: Discovery to be Official Title for CBS All Access Reboot

23 July 2016 3:42 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Star Trek: Discovery will be coming to CBS All Access in 2017.

That's the title of the newest Star Trek franchise, this time helmed by showrunner Bryan Fuller.

While at San Diego Comic Con, Fuller shared the series won't be episodic in nature, but will tell stories like a novel.

“Because it’s on CBS All Access, won’t miss anything,” Fuller said of the streaming service. “It’s all at your fingertips.”

Fuller was joined on stage by a lot of franchise guests, including William Shatner, Scott Bakula, Michael Dorn, Jeri Ryan and Brent Spiner.

Spiner did an impression of Patrick Stewart arguing that Captain Picard was the best USS Enterprise leader that really got the crowd going.

As could be expected, the panelists were comparing Trek time with current times.

“We’re in a time now where identity is under attack,” Spiner said. “It’s disturbing.”

21 July 2016 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With “Blunt Talk” just a few months away from debuting its sophomore season, Starz has released a new trailer signaling the return of its Patrick Stewart–led comedy. As his eponymous character, a British newscaster who moves to Los Angeles, apparently has fans in the adult-film industry, Stewart finds himself in a compromised position in the 30-second clip first uploaded to the show’s Facebook page. Watch it below.

The straitlaced seriousness of Professor X and Jean-Luc Picard isn’t exactly on display here, of course, with Stewart tapping into a rather different set of skills for the show. Stewart has said previously that the show has provided many occasions for him to say, “I’ve never done that before”; this, presumably, is no exception.

A porn parody of Blunt Talk. Yes that’s what coming up in Season 2 of Jonathan Ames’ Starz’s comedy, executive produced by Seth MacFarlane. There’s spanking, groping, well, you’ll see. Patrick Stewart’s Walter Blunt and company have some big fans in the adult film industry who want to immortalize Blunt’s cable broadcast, but perhaps not the way they envisioned.

Blunt Talk: Walter & Co. Get Porn (?!) Treatment in Season 2 Trailer

21 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

They do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

So Walter Blunt and his staff should take it as a compliment when, in this exclusive sneak peek at Blunt Talk‘s Season 2 trailer, the adult-film biz deems the Brit’s cable broadcast worthy of immortalization… in porn.

Star Trek: Insurrection - revisiting Star Trek 9

20 July 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alex Carter Jul 27, 2016

From the highs of Star Trek: First Contact, why did Star Trek: Insurrection become the most forgotten Trek movie?

“Ok, ok, so First Contact was a major box office and critical success, but it would have been so much better had all those great space battles been replaced with Riker having a shave in the bath.”

Said someone, somewhere, presumably.

Star Trek: Insurrection was the great hope for the franchise. The lessons learned from past failures. No more interference from the studio. Just put the right people in the right place and let them do their thing. It worked for Khan, it worked for First Contact, so it should work for Insurrection. Right?

No.

Star Trek: Insurrection stands in the unusual position of being a film that would have benefited enormously from executive meddling. If one voice had spoken up and said “this film has problems”, perhaps »

‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Season 2 Trailer: Watch the Footage Considered ‘Too Gory’ for Comic-Con

19 July 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Apropos of its subject matter, the “Evil Dead” franchise first launched by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell refuses to stay buried. Starz’s TV show based on the horror/comedy films is set to return for its second season this fall, an event being hyped by the network with a red-band trailer it claims was “too gory” for San Diego Comic-Con. The new spot for “Ash vs Evil Dead” first premiered on Twitter via Kid Cudi because it’s 2016 and weird things like that happen all the time now.

15 years ago today: ‘Legally Blonde’ opened in theaters

13 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

15 years ago today, Elle Woods taught us to bend and snap. Legally Blonde hit theaters on July 13, 2001, giving Reese Witherspoon her breakout role and giving us a movie that put a pink-loving sorority girl in the place where she’s the outcast: law school. Until she proves all her doubters wrong, that is, in the midst of a murder trial, no less. The comedy’s success led to a 2003 sequel and a stage musical that premiered on Broadway in 2007. Other notable July 13 happenings in pop culture history: • 1923: The Hollywood sign, which then read “Hollywoodland,” was officially dedicated. • 1939: Frank Sinatra made his recording debut in a New York studio, singing “From The Bottom Of My Heart” and “Melancholy Mood” with the Harry James Band. • 1964: The Supremes recorded “Come See About Me” in “Hitsville U.S.A.,” Motown’s first headquarters. • 1984: The Muppets Take Manhattan and The Last Starfighter opened in theaters. »

Green Room Blu-Ray Review

11 July 2016 8:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A Horror Renaissance is upon us, with a rise in unique and deceptively simple stories told with surprising depth and straightforward scares. This is the case with writer/director Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room, which hacks its way onto Blu-ray this week.

Green Room pulses with punk sensibility and a dose of very real, very visceral scares. The plot is simple enough: punk band The Ain’t Rights wander off the beaten path on their way home to Arlington, Va and take a gig at a club in the middle of the Oregon woods that proves to be a meeting place for local Neo-Nazis. A misplaced cellphone places them in the heart of a violent murder, which the club owner Darcy (Patrick Stewart) and his skinhead henchmen need to cover up. Cornered in the club’s green room and armed with a single gun, The Ain’t Rights ain’t »

Ryan Reynolds Teases Deadpool 2 With Cheeky Poster

One glance at Ryan Reynolds’ Instagram account will tell you that it’s often difficult to tell where Reynolds ends and the Merc With a Mouth begins – hardly surprising, really, considering that the actor has been attached to the role in some capacity for the best part of a decade.

The latest post is of particular interest, however, as it reveals the teasing first poster for Deadpool 2. Bear in mind that the one-sheet appears to be unofficial, particularly given that 20th Century Fox doesn’t plan to jump-start production until early next year at the earliest.

My morning with Anton Yelchin: 'I have an overabundance of emotion'

In an interview conducted at Cannes last year to promote the acclaimed drama Green Room, the actor was in expansive mood, talking of his kinship with Russian literature, revulsion for Nazis – and his favourite punk rockers

It was impossible not to be moved by the death, last month, of Anton Yelchin: a winning 27-year-old who clearly had so much more to give. Later this month sees the release in the Us of Star Trek Beyond – Yelchin’s most high-profile movie to be released posthumously. Next week, meanwhile, comes the DVD release of Green Room, one of the most critically acclaimed of the actor’s recent efforts, and a movie whose success he, happily, lived to see.

8 Actors Who Were Sadly Wasted In X-Men Movies

5 July 2016 6:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With superhero films having grown into the most profitable movie genre over the past couple of decades, more and more great actors are lining up to play roles alongside spandex-covered heroes.

The X-Men franchise has always managed to nab high quality performers, from proper thespians like Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in the original trilogy to younger, upcoming talent like Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy in the prequel films.

More News From The Web

However, while those actors have all been served pretty well by the series, other stars have been stuck in terribly underwritten roles. In some cases they’ve just been cast in the wrong parts (Vinnie Jones as Juggernaut?!), but, more often than not, the casting is perfect. It’s just the execution of the character that’s at fault.

Just as there are a bunch of actors who’ve been given the short straw in Marvel movies, »

Cliff Martinez is set to score James Mangold‘s The Wolverine 3. The film is now in-production and is said to be Hugh Jackman‘s last turn as perhaps his most iconic character.

The Wolverine 3, or whatever the filmmakers decide to call it, will be his first comic-book/ superhero movie.

Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, and Eriq La Salle are also set to star in the sequel, which will be released in 2017.

Here’s a sample of Martinez’s work from the outstanding Drive– it’s quite something.
