Watch Exclusive Clip From Leonard Nimoy Documentary ‘For the Love of Spock’

25 August 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For Adam Nimoy, the documentary “For the Love of Spock” gave him an opportunity to connect with father Leonard Nimoy in the closing months of his life.

“The minute I suggested it to dad, he was in,” Nimoy recalls in an exclusive clip. “That led me on a journey of self discovery about my relationship with my father.”

The clip includes multiple photos of the two in costume and in real life. The son bears more than a passing resemblance to his father, both physically and vocally.

The film will be released nationwide and on VOD by Gravitas Ventures on Sept. 9 — one day after the official 50th anniversary of the first network broadcast of “Star Trek” — and examines the phenomenon of the character Spock and the man behind the character.

Adam Nimoy began working on the film with his father in late 2014 before he passed away on Feb. 27, 2015. The doc »

Molly Jackson: Change in Process

24 August 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Last week, I wrote about how I can turn brunch into me championing female comics creators to new comic readers.  Ok, there was a bit more to it than that but just go ahead and read it if you really want the details. After that went out, our Ye Olde Editor Mike decided to play Devils’ Advocate and ask me why we need women creators in comics.

I admit, I was stumped about how to approach it this time.  I feel like so many writers, including myself, have tackled this subject.  And frankly, I don’t understand who would argue against women in comics at this point.  (I doubt Bill Willingham from Fables will read this.)  But then I remembered that no matter what I need to explain, I can always use Star Trek.  More on that soon.

Right now, according to Pew Research Center, 56% of men think sexism doesn’t exist anymore. »

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ CBS Series to Have Female Lead

10 August 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS’ “Star Trek: Discovery” will feature a female lead, Variety has confirmed. Executive producer Bryan Fuller is expected to discuss the role Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

CBS Television Studios, which is producing the series, is in the process of casting the role, which could potentially go to a woman of color. During a Q&A last month at Comic Con, Fuller spoke about Mae Jamison, the first African-American female astronaut and Nichelle Nichols, the lone African American and lone female cast member on the original “Star Trek” series, as inspirations for the characters on his show. “I think that ‘Star Trek’ is a show of firsts,” he said at the time.

Avery Brooks as Capt. Benjamin Sisko on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” was the first African American to lead a “Star Trek” series. Kate Mulgrew as Capt. Kathryn Janeway on “Star Trek: Voyager” was the franchise’s first female lead »

The Star Trek Controversy: CBS and Paramount vs. Fan Films

7 August 2016 7:39 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Paramount Pictures and CBS TV have drawn a line in the sand to stop the creation of fan-made films based on Star Trek. Because of the increasing high-quality of fan projects like Star Trek Axanar, the two big corporations have initiated a series of new rules designed to limit the scope and proliferation of the many independently made Star Trek projects. Is this fair?

 Independently made Star Trek projects are nothing new. The first Trek fan-made movie was filmed in Super 8 back in 1978. Since the introduction of the internet, Star Trek fan films and ongoing series have exploded in number. Within the last decade, we’ve had Trek fan series like Starship Exeter, Starship Farragut, Star Trek: Intrepid, Star Trek the New Voyages (Aka Star Trek Phase 2) and, the best one of all, Star Trek Continues, to name a few. We’ve also had full-length independent films like »

Season 2 of CBS’ Zoo may only be at its midway point (Episode 6 of 13 airs tonight at 9/8c), but such a technicality didn’t keep Michael Ausiello from asking James Wolk for finale scoop, during the CBS Fan Favorites’ visit to TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by Zte.

Blu-ray Review – Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: Director’s Cut (1982)

22 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, 1982.

Directed by Nicholas Meyer.

Starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, Paul Winfield, Bibi Besch and Ricardo Montalban.

Synopsis:

Years after their five year mission, the crew of the USS Enterprise under now Admiral James T. Kirk are pitched against an old adversary, Khan Noonien Singh, seeking vengeance via a devastating potential new weapon…

Without a shadow of a doubt, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is my favourite science-fiction movie. Always has been, always will be, and while critically it’s certainly not the genres best, it would be hard for anyone to deny its place high on the list. Nicholas Meyer’s sequel to the first Star Trek movie remains, even a quarter of a century and eleven movies later, the finest picture in the illustrious franchise’s history, and this brand »

The History of Lgbtq Representation in Star Trek

21 July 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For 50 years, the many incarnations of Star Trek have been boldly going where other shows wouldn’t.

The recent announcement that Hikaru Sulu (John Cho) will be gay in this weekend’s third installment of the Star Trek reboot films has garnered intense attention, contention, and debate. Many jilted fan boys have cried foul over director Jason Lin and writer Simon Pegg’s decision to pay homage to the original Sulu George Takei, claiming that it ruins the integrity of the character. Many have rejoiced in the “first” Lgbtq character in the franchise. Both of these camps are misguided. Star Trek has always been a place for Lgbtq representation — even when studios and public opinion refused to allow it to be overt.

Star Trek: The Original Series was groundbreaking in many ways. It was the vehicle through which one of the first televised interracial kisses occurred between Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and Lieutenant Uhura (Nichelle Nichols). The »
