Star Trek 3 reportedly titled Star Trek Beyond, Idris Elba set for a “kick-ass” role

22 April 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to fansite TrekMovie.com, which has a solid track record when it comes to Star Trek, the upcoming third movie in Paramount Pictures’ relaunched series is going by the title of Star Trek Beyond.

According to the site, Star Trek Beyond has been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), although the report does go on to state that it could be a decoy title, given Bad Robot’s penchant for secrecy.

Little is known about the plot for Star Trek 3, although Simon Pegg – who is co-writing the script, as well as reprising the role of Soctty – has previously stated that it will have “the spirit of the TV show”, and an increased emphasis on exploration.

Meanwhile, speaking to MTV, Pegg has also confirmed that Idris Elba is set for a “kick-ass” role, stating that: “It will be [an original character]. This is the five-year mission now, we’re out there. »

Star Trek 3 Titled Star Trek Beyond

22 April 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Gero Breloer/AP

Paramount Pictures’ third movie in their newly rebooted Trekkie franchise will be titled Star Trek Beyond.

According to TrekMovie, the studio recently registered the title with the Motion Picture Association of America, making it all but an imminent press release away from being officially announced.

As has been rumoured for months, the third Star Trek film is expected to see the Enterprise crew on an exploration into deep space, living up to the show’s original mantra of adventures “Where no man has gone before”.

Here’s how actor/screenwriter Simon Pegg put it to British newspaper The Guardian recently;

“Where no man has gone before – where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation. But yeah, that’s the mood at the moment.”

As was reported earlier in the year, Idris Elba will play the key villain in the movie. We »

Star Trek Beyond: Is this the title of the next USS Enterprise adventure?

22 April 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It sounds like the crew of the USS Enterprise may boldly go where no man has gone before in next year's Star Trek sequel.

We've been waiting with baited breath for Star Trek 3's title, and now we seem to have one - the film is reportedly called Star Trek Beyond.

TrekMovie.com - who previously confirmed the Star Trek Into Darkness title and Benedict Cumberbatch's involvement - reported the news on Tuesday (April 21).

A title like Star Trek Beyond would support Simon Pegg's recent suggestion that the film will take Kirk and Spock into galaxies not yet explored in the rebooted series.

Pegg is scripting the movie with Doug Jung, and Justin Lin is set to direct, following the departure of Jj Abrams to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban and Zoe Saldana are all to return »

Rumor: Star Trek 3 to Be Titled Star Trek Beyond?

22 April 2015 7:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It looks like Star Trek 3 might have an official title. According to TrekMovie.com, the upcoming film will likely be called Star Trek Beyond. Apparently that’s the title that’s been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), but the outlet also notes that we know how J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot operate. It’s possible that this could be a decoy title to throw fans off. However, the title Star Trek Beyond does make sense considering co-writer Simon Pegg has teased that the new film is about frontierism and also told Den of Geek the following: “So for me it's now about the spirit of adventure and exploration and also, in modern terms, just how would that be for people, to be away for that amount of time and that kind of stuff.” Director Justin Lin is expected to start filming Star Trek 3 (or »

Simon Pegg Discusses Idris Elba’s Character In Star Trek 3

21 April 2015 2:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been two years since the last Star Trek outing arrived in cinemas, and pre-production is now in full swing on the threequel. Star Trek 3 is slated to begin principal photography this June and has a sterling batch of creatives steering this one to the big screen. With J.J. Abrams busy tweaking the details on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fast & Furious veteran Justin Lin is directing from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. And now thanks to a new interview with MTV (via Collider), Pegg has opened up on precisely what’s in store for the sequel.

Addressing the topic of Idris Elba’s supposed appointment as the film’s villain, Pegg affirmed that the actor is indeed set to appear. But it won’t be anyone you’re likely to have heard of:

“It will be [an original character], yes. This is the five-year mission now, »

Whoa, mama! Zoe Saldana stepped out in Los Angeles on April 14 without a drop of makeup, and the star's skin was virtually glowing (maybe double the babies means double the benefit to your skin).

For her Beverly Hills outing, Zoe appeared cute and casual, wearing a black blouse, jeans and Saint Laurent monogrammed crossbody satchel. The mom-of-two has been keeping busy with cardio workouts, and even took to Facebook to share her post-twins progress with fans: "I made it!

'Avengers: Infinity War' Will Have More Than One Villain

16 April 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Joss Whedon has been making the press rounds of late to promote his highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two adventure Avengers: Age of Ultron, arriving in theaters May 1. While this movie appears to be his last Marvel movie in the foreseeable future, the Avengers will return with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 in 2019, which will be directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. During a recent interview with Vulture, Joss Whedon revealed that Thanos (Josh Brolin) won't be the only villain in the two-part Infinity War movie.

"A lot of people were surprised that Thanos wasn't the villains in Avengers 2, but he was never meant to be. He was always meant to be the puppet-master until he was done doing that, and then he'll be the big villain they face off with. Not solely - I'm sure there'll be plenty more [villains] in that monstrous epic, because »

Zoe Saldana Has Some Sage Advice for New Mothers: Being Self-Focused Doesn't Mean You're ''Being Selfish''

15 April 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Zoe Saldana is keeping it real. The actress isn't sugar coating anything about her mission to shed the baby (ahem, babies!) weight, in fact, she's been super forthcoming about how difficult it's been to find the time to work out in the gym. In her most recent post on Facebook, the mother of twin boys admitted that she had been procrastinating as of late, saying, "I made it! After a week of postponing my workout due to life & meetings & work, I prioritized it. I prioritized myself. A good friend once told me that being self-focused doesn't necessarily mean you are being selfish. Be self-focused!" And just a few days ago, she shared a photo of herself jogging on a treadmill »

'Guardians 2' Soundtrack Is Better Than the First Says Gunn

15 April 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters last August, some box office prognosticators felt that this adventure featuring little-known Marvel characters could be the studio's first box office bomb. Not only were they proven wrong, as the cosmic space adventure took in over $774 million worldwide, but the soundtrack Awesome Mix Vol. 1 proved to be a surprise hit as well, selling over 1 million albums. While attending the red carpet premiere for Avengers: Age of Ultron, writer-director James Gunn revealed that he already has the songs picked out for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and he thinks the soundtrack will be better than the original.

"Originally, people kept asking me 'Don't you feel a lot of pressure to do the second movie,' and I didn't in general because we had our hands tied behind our back on the first one. But I had to introduce all those characters so it seems like »

James Gunn: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be about “fathers”

15 April 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn (Slither) has spoken to Vulture about the plot of his Marvel sequel. While attending the Avengers: Age of Ultron (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson) premiere, he teased:

“There’s a lot of stuff I’m excited about in the new movie. Listen, I’m still excited about Star-Lord’s character and where he goes. At its heart, Guardians is a story about families, and if the first film was about him and his mother, this is a story about fathers. So it’s exciting to go there.”

Although Gunn doesn’t directly say whether the ‘father’ storyline relates to Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill (Chris Pratt) – it could, after all, refer to Gomorra (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula’s (Karen Gillan) relationship to their adopted father/crazed-dictator Thanos (Josh Brolin), or even Drax’s (Dave Bautista) to his murdered child – the smart Units would be that it does. »

James Gunn says Guardians 2 is a tale about fathers with a better soundtrack

15 April 2015 4:40 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Aside from taking time to watch the new Daredevil series or see Avengers: Age Of Ultron, James Gunn is knee-deep in finishing the screenplay for Guardians Of The Galaxy 2. Of course, all the usual suspects will return in Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel, but Gunn has also let slip a few other morsels lately. He's announced the return of Karen Gillan's Nebula, and more recently talked about what thematic material we can expect to see in »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Story Will Focus on Fathers

14 April 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that the story treatment for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is complete, with James Gunn now working on the actual script itself, as shooting is scheduled to begin in February 2016. Last night, the filmmaker took a break from writing to attend the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere in Hollywood, where he revealed a few new details about the sequel. At the heart of last year's Guardians of the Galaxy was Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) relationship with his mother before she passed away, while introducing the mystery of who his father really is. James Gunn confirmed that while the first movie is about mothers, the second is about fathers.

"There's a lot of stuff I'm excited about in the new movie. Listen, I'm still excited about Star-Lord's character and where he goes. At its heart, Guardians is a story about families, and if the first film was about him and his mother, »

Star Trek 3: Kingsman's Sofia Boutella joining cast

12 April 2015 10:06 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sofia Boutella is reportedly taking on a lead role in the 13th Star Trek film, that Doug Jung and Simon Pegg are writing...

Star Trek 3, or Star Trek 13 if you prefer, is continuing to add to its cast and crew, as it's being reported that Kingsman: The Secret Service's Sofia Boutella is joining the project in an unnamed role.

Boutella played the assassin Gazalle in Kingsman, and if she does indeed sign up for Star Trek duty, she may well be joined by Idris Elba, who is believed to be in negotiations to play the villain in the new movie.

Boutella's role, incidentally, is being described as a 'lead' one.

The returning cast include Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana, with Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) taking over from Jj Abrams in the director's chair. The screenplay this time comes from Pegg and Doug Jung. »
