Watch Zoe Saldana's Hilarious Dubsmash Featuring Her Husband and Sons

15 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Here's another reason to love Zoe Saldana.  The Star Trek star shared a Dubsmash video that she made with her husband Marco Perego and their twin boys Cy and Bowie. The actress and her hubby sing along to the Beastie Boys' "So What Cha Want," as their sons are snuggled in baby carriers.  "I'm only posting this dubsmash because Simon Pegg insisted. He reminded me how much the crew laughed when I sent this video. It was over a weekend while we were shooting Star Trek in Vancouver last summer," she captioned the video. "Every time I see all the videos we all did it makes me think of Anton. We hope you get a laugh out of this. #startrek »

Drake Doremus Plots Equals Follow-Up With Charlie Hunnam And Léa Seydoux

20 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Drake Doremus is plotting his follow-up to Equals now that The Hollywood Reporter reveals Léa Seydoux and soon-to-be King Arthur Charlie Hunnam are boarding his as-yet-untitled project.

Billed as a “unique love story,” Scott Free Productions is on board to produce – extending its collaboration with the filmmaker following work on Equals – though plot details are practically non-existent at such an early stage. We understand that Rich Greenberg is the brain behind the script, though, and that Léa Seydoux and Charlie Hunnam are central to the goings-on of Doremus’ latest.

Granted, the director may have split audiences with the Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult sci-fi film Equals, but Like Crazy – which featured Felicity Jones and the late Anton Yelchin – displayed the director’s deft touch for all things romance, a knack he’ll no doubt call upon for this latest project.

In terms of Drake Doremus‘ newfound duo, we know that Seydoux, »

“Style is the Culmination of Your Mistakes”: Cinematographer Sean Porter on Green Room

12 August 2016 12:32 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Early in Green Room – before the carnage ramps its way toward a violent, chaotic crescendo – there’s a close-up of a record player spinning haplessly in the foreground while the out-of-focus shape of Anton Yelchin’s punk bassist stirs in the background’s dawn light. The opening act of Green Room is replete with these moments of lyricism, the culmination of which amplify the tragedy when the machetes are unsheathed and the dogs unleashed. When the lives of Yelchin’s bandmates are extinguished, we feel the weight of it because we’ve glimpsed the poetry, the slivers of grace, within them. Set largely […] »

With Star Trek Beyond making less money than its previous two movies week to week so far, and the lack of enthusiasm for the franchise’s 50 year anniversary, Oli and Luke argue that Star Trek needs a super producer in the vein of Kevin Feige or Kathleen Kennedy to properly exploit Paramount’s most under-used property.

Filmmakers: Here’s How to Get Chris Pine Interested Your Movie

11 August 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Thanks in part to a couple of “Star Trek” movies, Chris Pine is now one of the most recognizable faces at the movies. His mixture of old-school swagger and disarming charm helped introduce a new generation to Captain James T. Kirk, while keeping diehard fans at bay, and that appeal shows no sign of letting up: The latest “Star Trek” film has grossed close to $200 million worldwide this summer and it’s still going.

But while some stars anchoring franchises may stick close to the blockbuster routine, over the past year, that hasn’t been Pine’s only mode — or even the one that interests him the most these days. In last year’s minimalist post-apocalyptic drama “Z for Zachariah,” Craig Zobel directed Pine as one-third of a tense love triangle featuring three survivors on a farm who comprised the entire cast of the movie.

Star Trek Beyond continued the rebooted franchise’s string of rather rubbish villains, with Idris Elba’s Krall being one of the weakest parts of the movie.

But Oli reckons the parts are there to turn Beyond into a Heart of Darkness-style journey into Kirk’s psyche…with Krall as the story’s Colonel Kurtz.

Simon Pegg explains Carol Marcus’ absence in Star Trek Beyond

7 August 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise reunited last month for the third entry in Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek series, Star Trek Beyond, although their was one noticeable absentee: Kirk’s old flame Carol Marcus, played by Alice Eve in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness.

Speaking to io9, screenwriter and star Simon Pegg has explained why they decided not to include the character in Beyond, stating that:

“We thought rather than have Carol Marcus be not used to a reasonable capacity, let’s just not include her, have her be alive, in canon, and be ready to come back at any time… I think we had some lines to explain her absence in one of the initial drafts that had her going off to start work on the Genesis project and do sort of very, very early research on that, but it didn’t make it into the final cut. »

Carol Marcus' Absence in Star Trek Beyond Explained by Simon Pegg

4 August 2016 1:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Star Trek Beyond entering its third weekend in theaters, the sci-fi sequel is faring quite well at the box office, earning $115.5 million domestically and $171.9 million worldwide, although it has yet to open in several international markets like China. Before the release, it was confirmed that this sequel is set within the U.S.S. Enterprise's five-year mission, but, surprisingly, one character was suspiciously absent, Carol Marcus, played by Alice Eve in Star Trek Into Darkness.

2013's Star Trek Into Darkness ended with the U.S.S. Enterprise crew starting their five-year mission, and Carol Marcus was even seen on the ship as the movie headed into credits. However, Alice Eve was never confirmed as part of the cast for Star Trek Beyond, and she was nowhere to be found in this beloved sci-fi sequel.

Anton Yelchin's parents sue Fiat Chrysler by Jennie Kermode - 2016-08-03 10:52:05

The parents of 27 year old Star Trek star Anton Yelchin, who died in June after being hit by his own jeep, have filed a lawsuit against manufacturer Fiat Chrysler. They are alleging wrongful death due to a fault with the vehicle's monostable gear selector.

It has emerged that Fiat Chrysler were aware of problems with the gear selector in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and had issued a recall for the vehicles in July last year. It is not uncommon, however, for recalls in the industry to take one to three years to process, even when there is a serious breach of regulations or the fault could be dangerous. The Us National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported in June that it has received hundreds of complaints about the fault. 226 accidents allegedly relating to it have been reported, »

Anton Yelchin's Parents Sue Fiat Chrysler for Wrongful Death

2 August 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been less than two months since beloved Star Trek Beyond actor Anton Yelchin passed away after a freak accident involving his Jeep Grand Cherokee. Since then, lawsuits involving that same vehicle have been filed against the car's manufacturer, Fiat Chrysler, but today, the actor's own parents have filed suit against the auto company. Viktor and Irina Yelchin filed the lawsuit today in Los Angeles, although the auto manufacturer has yet to comment thus far.

TMZ obtained documents filed in today's lawsuit which claims that Yelchin was crushed to death by his vehicle, after leaving the Jeep in park at the top of his driveway, which was on an incline. The lawsuit claims that the death was caused by a defective e-shift gear selector, which caused the vehicle to roll down the driveway and crush the actor, who was said to be "alive for some time" before ultimately suffocating and passing away. »

Newswire: Anton Yelchin’s parents are suing Jeep

2 August 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Viktor and Irina Yelchin, the parents of Star Trek and Green Room star Anton Yelchin, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler, the maker of the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee that ended the actor’s life on June 19. Yelchin was killed when his vehicle rolled down a short hill while he was walking behind it, pinning him against a brick mailbox. As previously reported, the vehicle had been subject to a recall notice from Fiat Chrysler, citing a gearshift design that made it difficult for some drivers to determine when their Jeep’s parking brake was on.

According to the family’s attorneys, Yelchin was sent a recall notice for the vehicle—one that didn’t arrive until a week after the actor’s death. In the suit, the family alleges that Fiat Chrysler, and the dealership Yelchin purchased the vehicle from, “failed to timely and/or ...

Anton Yelchin Received Jeep Recall Notice 7 Days After His Death

2 August 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A recall notice for a Jeep Grand Cherokee was mailed to actor Anton Yelchin seven days after he was killed in a freak roll away accident, his family’s attorney said Tuesday.

Yelchin’s parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit Tuesday against the vehicle’s manufacturer, Fiat Chrysler, as well as Zf North America, which manufactured the gear shift. Fiat Chrysler recalled more than 800,000 vehicles in April, after receiving hundreds of rollaway complaints.

“The safety recall was way too little and way too late,” attorney Gary Dordick said at a press conference in Beverly Hills. “They should have never used this device.”

The shifter in 2014 and 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees operates like a joystick, returning to the same position no matter what gear the vehicle is in. Some drivers have become confused and exited the vehicle while it is still in gear, leading it to roll away. Yelchin died on June »
