Production continues on the next Star Trek movie adventure, Star Trek Beyond, which is currently shooting. The film reunites the core cast of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin. Justin Lin - best known for helming four Fast & Furious movies - is directing, and Simon Pegg and Doug Jung have penned the screenplay.
The main new casting addition this time around has been Idris Elba, who's playing the movie's villain. But now we learn too that martial arts actor Joe Taslim has also signed on the dotted line. He previously worked with Justin Lin on Fast & Furious 6, and also featured in The Raid. His role is said to be a "key part opposite Elba", although we know no more than that right now. »
You likely saw him as Jaka in The Raid, or maybe putting the hurt on our heroes as one of Luke Evans’ henchmen in Fast & Furious 6. Now Joe Taslim is headed somewhere very different, joining the cast of Star Trek Beyond. With pretty much everything about the film – beyond the presence of the Enterprise crew veterans including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin, plus new franchise faces Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella – still being kept behind a protective shield, The Hollywood Reporter offers no real details about what Taslim will be up to in the film. But the trade mag does indicate that he has a key role opposite Elba, who will be the film’s big threat. So we’d expect Kirk and co. to have some trouble with him...With a script by Pegg and Doug Jung and »

The Raid: Redemption and Fast & Furious 6 star Joe Taslim is moving from the action movie genre to sci-fi, signing on for a role in Star Trek Beyond. Heat Vision Blog doesn't have any details about his character, except that it is a "key part" opposite Idris Elba, who plays a villain. The project reunites the actor with filmmaker Justin Lin, who directed him in Fast & Furious 6.
Aside from Idris Elba and Joe Taslim, Sofia Boutella is the only other new cast member confirmed for Star Trek Beyond.

For all of the talk of Star Trek Beyond placing the spotlight on frontierism and adventure – tenets considered to be fundamental to the franchise’s DNA – Paramount has no intention of chucking the baby out with the bath water, after it confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that The Raid and Fast and Furious 6 star Joe Taslim will join the ranks for Justin Lin’s upcoming sequel.
While details of Taslim’s role are scarce on the ground, THR notes that it is a “a key part opposite [Idris] Elba, who plays a villain.” Either way, given his action credentials, the addition of the Chinese-Indonesian actor can only bolster Beyond‘s line-up, and we’re excited to see how he fits into Justin Lin’s anticipated threequel.

The third film in the rebooted "Star Trek" film franchise, Taslim's role is said to be a key part playing opposite the film's main villain Idris Elba. It's a familiar position for Taslim who was in the same position opposite Luke Evans in the Lin-directed "Fast and Furious 6".
Currently in production in Vancouver, the film sees the return of main cast members Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban and John Cho alongside first timer Sofia Boutella.
The film is set to get a July 8th 2016 release date.

Over the course of his career, filmmaker Michael Almereyda has garnered a number of fans for his works, many of whom were excited to see him return to theatres earlier this year with his first feature since 2008 with the Shakespeare adaptation Cymbeline. The gap between this and Almereyda’s next movie, however, is poised to be significantly less, as his newest film made its debut at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Titled Experimenter, the film sees Almereyda recounting the events of the 1961 Stanley Milgram Experiment. The synopsis is below.
Experimenter is based on the true story of famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram, who in 1961 conducted a series of radical behavior experiments that tested ordinary humans willingness to obey by using electric shock. We follow Milgram, from meeting his wife Sasha through his controversial experiments that sparked public outcry.
Peter Sarsgaard takes on the role of Milgram in this adaptation, which Almereyda both writes and directs. »

"Why is defiance the anomaly instead of the norm?" Magnolia Picture has debuted the official trailer for Experimenter, directed by Michael Almereyda starring Peter Sarsgaard as social psychologist Stanley Milgram. The film looks at Milgram's controversial studies in the early 1960s at Yale, involving an electric shock administered to "stranger" in the room next door. It would make a nice companion piece with The Stanford Prison Experiment, also at Sundance this year, and also a look at the way humans respond to and take control of authority. In addition to Sarsgaard, the Experimenter cast includes Winona Ryder, Kellan Lutz, Taryn Manning, John Leguizamo, Jim Gaffigan, Dennis Hyasbert & Anton Yelchin. Enjoy. Here's the trailer (+ poster) for Michael Almereyda's Experimenter, in high def on Apple (via YouTube): Famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram (played by Peter Sarsgaard) in 1961 conducts a series of radical behavior experiments at Yale University that test ordinary humans willingness to obey authority. »

Yale University, 1961. Stanley Milgram (Peter Sarsgaard) designs a psychology experiment that still resonates to this day, in which people think they’re delivering painful electric shocks to an affable stranger (Jim Gaffigan) strapped into a chair in another room.
Despite his pleads for mercy, the majority of subjects don’t stop the experiment, administering what they think is a near-fatal electric shock, simply because they’ve been told to do so.
With Nazi Adolf Eichmann’s trial airing in living rooms across America, Milgram strikes a nerve in popular culture and the scientific community with his exploration into people’s tendency to comply with authority. Celebrated in some circles, he is also accused of being a deceptive, manipulative monster, but his wife Sasha (Winona Ryder) stands by him through it all.
