Zoo's James Wolk: Cliffhanger Finale Tees Up a 'Very Interesting' Season 3

26 July 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

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.

In the video clip above, Wolk reports that not only does Season 2 end (on Sept. 6) with a cliffhanger, but it effectively paves the way for a “very interesting” Season 3 — if, that is, CBS renews the summertime series/James Patterson adaptation.

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 »

‘Star Trek’ Wants to Regulate Fan Culture, But It’s Not Going to Be Easy

18 July 2016 3:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As of September 8, “Star Trek” will have officially been a part of American pop culture for 50 years, and it has one of the most robust and passionate fandoms in pop culture history. Fandom is basically a synonym for love — and “Star Trek” is currently in the process of telling some fans how to express their love.

It has been, to be frank, a bit of a mess.

How One Fan Film Set Things Off

In May 2016, one of the nerdiest things ever written was filed with the United States District Court. In a ruling by Judge R. Gary Klausner, His Honor declared that a lawsuit filed by Paramount Pictures and CBS Studios should proceed, because:

“Although the Court declines to address whether Plaintiffs’ Claims will prosper at this time, the Court does find Plaintiffs’ claims will live long enough to survive Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss.”

We are just a couple of short weeks away from Star Trek Beyond finally hitting theaters, and potentially saving us from a recent round of big bombs and disappointments at the box office.

Star Trek Beyond Reveals Sulu as First Gay Star Trek Character

7 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few months ago, Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin teased that he wanted to "deconstruct" the entire Star Trek franchise with this sequel, in honor of its 50th Anniversary this year. While he wouldn't delve into specifics, the filmmaker said they would be "poking at a lot of different things", while also teasing shortly thereafter that there would be 50 different alien species on display. Today we have confirmation that this sequel will showcase the first gay character in the history of this storied franchise.

Australia's Herald Sun caught up with John Cho during a promotional event in Sydney, where it was confirmed that his character Hikaru Sulu is in fact gay. In the film, which opens July 22, he is portrayed as a loving father of a daughter and also has a same-sex partner. When asked about the decision by writer/star Simon Pegg to make Sulu gay, John Cho had this to say. »

Star Trek: The Axanar Repercussions

24 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on the repercussions of Star Trek: Axanar

Well. CBS and Paramount just put a great big giant bat’leth right through the hopes and dreams of many a Star Trek fan looking to make a movie within their beloved franchise, with a brand new set of very clear and to an extent unprecedented stipulations outlining what a fan film can, and importantly, cannot do. Some time ago I wrote about the supposed cancellation of the CBS/Paramount lawsuit against the Axanar fan movie by Alec Peters, following public statements from Star Trek Beyond creatives Justin Lin & Jj Abrams. It stoked some fascinating back and forth (and inevitably petty name calling) about where fans stand on the Axanar issue, and while not only the claims of the lawsuit disappearing may well have been premature, make no mistake: these new fan stipulations are the ripple effect reverberations from the Axanar case hitting the press, »

Eight more Saturn Awards, “Star Wars” has.

Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” dominated the film categories at the 42nd Saturn Awards in Burbank. The series revival scored honors for top science fiction film, actor Harrison Ford, supporting actor Adam Driver, script, editing, music, makeup, and special effects.

Crimson Peak,” which was not a commercial success but is approaching cult status, was the second-most honored film, taking three awards: best horror film, supporting actress Jessica Chastain, and production design.

In TV, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films continued to honor “The Walking Dead” (best horror TV series, supporting actress Danai Gurira and younger actor Chandler Riggs); “Hannibal” (action/thriller series, supporting actor Richard Armitage) and “Continuum” (science fiction TV series). “Outlander,” a new entry, took honors as top fantasy series and for actress Caitrionia Balfe.

Bruce Campbell summed up the vibe of the Saturn Awards — and the emotions of the audience — from the podium: »
