Watch ‘Star Trek’ Revival’s First Teaser and More CBS Trailers

18 May 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has released the trailers for the new shows debuting during the network’s 2016-17 season, including the upcoming revival of “Star Trek.” The first look teaser for the sci-fi series had no footage, but promised “new crews, new villains, new heroes, new worlds.”

Though the logo simply says “Star Trek,” Variety has learned that the series will have a more specific title to be unveiled at a later date. Later installments in the “Star Trek” television franchise had titles that differentiated them from the original series — “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” and “Star Trek: Enterprise.”

CBS also unveiled promos for the remakes of “MacGyver” and “Training Day,” and new comedies starring Kevin James and Matt LeBlanc, among others.

Check out the videos for the new series below.

Foster's Socially Conscious Wall Street Hostage Thriller Suffers from Triteness, Dishonesty

13 May 2016 6:57 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Money Monster' with George Clooney and Jack O'Connell: TV celebrity and unwise investor/hostage taker. 'Money Monster' review: Jodie Foster movie suffers from both qualitative and intellectual disconnect Sometimes there's a difference between what a movie thinks it is and what it actually is. Usually it's a qualitative disconnect, as in “this movie thinks it's exciting but it's actually boring” or “this movie assumes Kevin Hart is funny when, in fact, he's not.” In the case of Money Monster, the divide is also an intellectual versus anti-intellectual one. The fourth film directed by Jodie Foster fancies itself a ripped from the headlines wail from the bottom of the economic ladder. A thriller-cum-exposé into how Wall Street and big media suckered average Americans into following the Pied Pipers of TV's financial punditry class over the cliff into economic ruin. However, the movie we're really getting is »

Jodie Foster’s “Money Monster” is a populist thrill ride

12 May 2016 5:18 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

To this day, it still bugs me that more people didn’t give Jodie Foster’s previous directorial outing The Beaver a chance. I can understand why it was shunned, having had the misfortune of being released at the height of star Mel Gibson’s unpopularity, but still. Foster and the film deserved better. Now, she seeks at the very least some box office redemption with Money Monster, a high profile thriller. Debuting earlier today at the Cannes Film Festival, I’ve already seen the movie and can vouch for it as a solid outing by Foster. It doesn’t really break any new ground, but it’s entertaining, which certainly counts for something. You’ll see what I mean later this week, when the flick hits theaters. The movie is a financial thriller of sorts, set within the world of a hostage situation. Lee Gates (George Clooney) is the »
