William Shatner keen on Star Trek return as Captain Kirk

7 February 2016 11:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite rumours linking him to an appearance in Paramount PicturesStar Trek Beyond, last month saw William Shatner denying reports that he was set to return as James T. Kirk for the U.S.S. Enterprise’s latest adventure.

As yet, we haven’t seen Kirk in Paramount’s rebooted Trek universe, but Shatner has told The Hollywood Reporter that he’d “absolutely” reprise the role, assuming the producers can come up with an interesting storyline for his return.

“I would play an old Captain Kirk, absolutely,” said Shatner. “You would have [to have] an interesting character, not a cameo, like, ‘Here I am, aren’t I interesting?’ It’s the ongoing world; it’s the world within science-fiction. Yes, you age within the universe. Time goes on — but time bends, as well. There’s so many things you could do.”

Miles Teller & Anna Kendrick in Official Trailer for Comedy 'Get a Job'

5 February 2016 5:20 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm 22 years old and I have no idea what I'm going to do with the rest of my life! And I'm fine with that." CBS Films has debuted the theatrical trailer for the comedy Get a Job, starring Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick as a couple struggling with life after college. Right as one of them might finally have snagged a good job, the other one gets fired, and it makes for good humor and good lessons to be learned. The full cast includes some other big names like Bryan Cranston, Marcia Gay Harden, Alison Brie, Ravi Patel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jorge Garcia, John C. McGinley and John Cho. Not the best looking comedy out there, but it does have good laughs. I'm always glad to see Anna Kendrick in a lead role, too. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Dylan Kidd's Get a Job, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube: Life »

Megan Fox Arrives in 'New Girl' Season 5 Trailer

4 February 2016 9:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, Fox announced that their hit sitcom New Girl will be getting a new roommate, with Megan Fox signing on for a multi-episode guest starring arc in the show. We got our first brief glimpse at the actress in a trailer that surfaced in December, but Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new trailer and photos from next week's episode, Reagan, airing Tuesday, February 9, with even more footage of the guest star. This trailer reveals that the actress' character, Reagan, has a history with Cece (Hannah Simone), who both "hooked up" at the MTV Beach House.

The casting move was made after Zooey Deschanel had a baby in real life, causing her to be absent from the show, leading to Megan Fox being cast. Her character Reagan will debut in next week's episode, and is described as a straight-shooting pharmaceutical sales rep, who comes to town on business and rents out Jess' room, »

Watch: 'Get a Job' is the Star-Studded Comedy You Had No Idea Existed Until This Trailer

3 February 2016 10:42 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Many years ago, up-and-coming actors Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick were cast in Dylan McKidd's "Get a Job," which chronicles the ups and downs of finding a job when you're a recent college graduate. Partnering two of the best young actors on the planet seemed like a solid choice at the time, as did rounding out the cast with the likes of Bryan Cranston, John Cho, Alison Brie and Marcia Gay Harden, among many others. The only problem: This was way back in 2012. Read More: Watch: 'The Skinny' Trailer Puts a Dark Comedic Spin on YouTube Stardom Flash forward four years, and it looks like "Get a Job" is finally seeing the light of day in theaters and on VOD this March, but it arrives with more of a "wait, what the heck?" thud than any kind of real anticipation.

Get A Job Trailer Has Anna Kendrick And Miles Teller Go For Broke

3 February 2016 10:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Anna Kendrick and Miles Teller star as two down-on-their-luck college graduates struggling to make ends meet in the first Get a Job trailer, which is now finally on the verge of release.

First hatched in 2012, the dramedy appeared to bring together all then necessary ingredients for a sure-fire hit, chiefly former Community star Alison Brie and a Bryan Cranston who was still considered the apex predator of Albuquerque at the time. But then, Get a Job was ordered to the shelf where it’s remained ever since, a fate that even led Kendrick to question whether the film would ever see a release.

Now, out of the blue, CBS Films and Lionsgate Premiere has whipped Dylan Kidd’s picture into shape, premiering the first trailer and poster ahead of a limited theaterical release next month. Also starring Superbad alum Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Marcia Gay Harden, John Cho, John C. McGinley, Nicholas Braun, »

First Trailer for Long-Delayed Comedy ‘Get a Job’ With Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick & More

3 February 2016 9:17 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you believe everyone looks a bit younger than normal in the first trailer for Get a Job, you are not mistaken. Shot back in 2012, the latest film from Dylan Kidd (Rodger Dodger, P.S.) was going through undisclosed behind-the-scenes struggles that led some of its stars to believe it may never see a release. Well, it looks like Lionsgate Premiere has picked it up and it’ll now be arriving next month.

Starring Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick, Bryan Cranston, Alison Brie, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Marcia Gay Harden, John Cho, John C. McGinley, Nicholas Braun, Brandon T. Jackson, and more, it follows a group of recent graduates attempting to cope with the current (or 2012, rather) job market. The first trailer doesn’t sell a great film, but hopefully there will be something worthwhile here coming from the talented cast and director. Check it out below along with the poster.

Get a Job opens on March 25th. »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Get A Job' With Anna Kendrick, Miles Teller, Alison Brie, Bryan Cranston, And Many More

3 February 2016 9:04 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With filming completed in 2012, and nothing heard about "Get A Job" since, it's not a surprise that in 2014, Anna Kendrick said she didn't think the movie would be released. "I don't think it is," the actress shared. "It's like a mystery. It's just never, ever, ever gonna see the light of day... It was two years ago, it was a very topical comedy thing. It was supposed to be we were fresh out of college... Dylan Kidd, he's a great director. It's crazy how that can happen." Indeed, it's unclear why the movie never even made it to a festival debut. Somewhat out of nowhere, though, it's finally hitting the big screen, and the first trailer has arrived.

Completed four years ago, "Rodger Dodger" director Dylan Kidd's coming of age comedy "Get A Job" is finally getting dusted off a shelf and is scoring a release at last on March 25th.

Jackson and Jay Pharoah all star in a film in which college grads learn about post-school life the hard way as they try to find jobs in the middle of a recession.

Spa Night review: young Korean American comes of age in an all-male spa

24 January 2016 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Andrew Ahn’s directorial debut uses the Korean spas of Los Angeles as a backdrop for a gay coming-of-age story, but – unlike the spa – it’s a chilly affair

Korean Americans actors, besides comedian Margaret Cho and Star Trek star John Cho, are rarely afforded roles in American feature films. In that respect, Spa Night is cause for celebration.

The coming-of-age drama, from first-time feature film-maker Andrew Ahn (his short film Dol premiered at the 2012 Sundance film festival), is a rarity among films shot in the Us: it takes place in Los Angeles’ densely populated Koreatown neighbourhood, and features a cast made up solely of Korean American actors. While it’s invigorating to see that area’s community given a voice on screen, Ahn’s muted approach to his material, coupled with the passivity of the film’s lead character, David Cho (Joe Seo), leaves Spa Night feeling too cold to fully engage. »

The Gap Between Star Trek Beyond And The Other Films, According To Karl Urban

18 January 2016 9:54 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The original Star Trek series was based around a "five-year mission." The end of the most recent movie in the rebooted franchise, Star Trek into Darkness, sent the crew of the Starship Enterprise on the same extended trip. Now we know exactly far into that mission Star Trek Beyond will pick up, and exactly how the long trip is impacting the crew. John Cho, the actor who plays Enterprise helmsman Hikaru Sulu, told Entertainment Tonight that the movie will open with the characters in ruts, and on each others' nerves, because of the extended period together. This makes sense given that Karl Urban reveals that we'll be finding the Enterprise a couple years into their big five-year mission: On this one you.ll notice that there.s been aging. It.s two years into the mission, so there.s wear and tear on the ship. It.s an interesting place »

A new video teases little changes to the Enterprise and more for Sulu in Star Trek Beyond...

A new video from the set of Star Trek Beyond has just been released, and it's gone into a little more detail as to what to expect from the new movie.

On top of that, Karl Urban has revealed that the copies of the screenplay were so secretive, that individual cast members' scripts had specific individual spelling mistakes in them, to allow them to be directly tracked back to that person.

Star Trek Beyond arrives in cinemas on July 22nd 2016. And here's that video...

William Shatner says “there was never a conversation” about him returning as Kirk for Star Trek Beyond

7 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in September, it was rumoured that William Shatner could reprise the role of Captain James T. Kirk for this year’s Star Trek Beyond, with Shatner subsequently confirming that he’d been approached. However, it seems he’s now changed his mind, telling SFX Magazine that:

“There was never a conversation. It would have been interesting to see what their fertile imaginations could have done with somebody who is 20 years older than when Captain Kirk died and how they would have explained the difference in appearance. But that never came up. I’m sure they must have thought of it one time or another but I never had a substantial conversation about replaying the role.”

It seems that Kirk would have featured in the movie, had Paramount not ditched Roberto Orci’s draft for the film and brought in Simon Pegg and Doug Jung to rewrite the script.

No William Shatner in 'Star Trek Beyond'

6 January 2016 10:46 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Gamesradar posted an excerpt from SFX Magazine featuring an exclusive interview with actor William Shatner. In the interview, the actor confirmed that he will not reprise his role as Captain James T. Kirk saying:

"There was never a conversation."

The only original "Star Trek" actor to reprise his role in the new films was the late Leonard Nimoy who appeared as Spock Prime in 2009's "Star Trek" and 2013's "Star Trek into Darkness", which were directed by J.J. Abrams

Shatner continued,

"It would have been interesting to see what their fertile imaginations could have done with somebody who is 20 years older than when Captain Kirk died [in Star Trek Generations] and how they would have explained the difference in appearance. But that never came up. I’m sure they must have thought of it one time or another but I never had a substantial conversation about replaying the role.”
