Movie Review – Star Trek Beyond (2016)

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond, 2016.

Directed by Justin Lin.

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Sofia Boutella and Idris Elba.

Synopsis:

Three years into their five year mission, the crew of the USS Enterprise face their biggest test yet upon encountering a hostile alien force in unexplored territory, which sees Captain James T. Kirk truly discover what it means to be a Starfleet Captain…

We were all a bit worried about this, weren’t we? Let’s be honest. Star Trek Beyond could have been quite the disaster. A production which changed gears very late on, with a script by co-star Simon Pegg & writer Doug Jung written late in the day, not to mention riding in over three years later off the back of Star Trek Into Darkness, a movie that’s depreciated significantly in the public consciousness since release as a picture »

One of the final performances from the late star to be seen as part of San Sebastian’s New Directors line-up.

San Sebastian Film Festival (Sept 16-24) has unveiled the 14 filmmakers set to compete for the Kutxabank-New Directors award, which comes with a prize of €50,000.

The strand, made up of first or second films from international filmmakers, includes Gabe Klinger’s Porto, which features one of the final performances of Anton Yelchin, who died last month.

Star Trek Beyond opens to $89 million worldwide

25 July 2016 4:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Star Trek celebrates its 50th anniversary, Paramount Pictures has unleashed the third instalment of its rebooted series – and the thirteenth movie overall – with the Justin Lin-directed Star Trek Beyond enjoying a worldwide opening haul of $89.3 million.

Domestically, Beyond topped the chart with $59.3 million, which is down on the previous two instalments, with 2009’s Star Trek debuting to $75.2 million and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness opening with $70.2 million.

Beyond cost $185 million, so should go on to turn a small profit for the studio, which will surely be a relief for Paramount given they have already announced a fourth movie, which will see Chris Hemsworth reprising the role of George Kirk.

Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm »

Mindy Newell: Star Trek – Beyond Tribute and Redemption

25 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Kirk: We make a good team

Spock: Yes, we do.

Bones: We could be mauled to death by an interstellar monster!

Kirk: That’s the spirit, Bones.

Considering today is Monday the 25th and Star Trek: Beyond came out only three days ago, how much can I tell you about it without doing the dreaded Here There Be Spoilers dance? Hmmm…let’s see….

Did I like it?

Yes.

Did I luvvvvvvvv it?

Well, that’s hard to say. If you had asked me that last night as I was walking out of the theatre, I would have said, “No, I didn’t luvvvvvvvv it.”

Meaning that I didn’t want to turn around and immediately buy another ticket, ‘cause I’m too honest to just stay in my seat and wait for the next show, and besides, with my luck, I would have gotten caught by that one »

Movie Review – Star Trek Beyond (2016)

24 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond, 2016.

Directed by Justin Lin.

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella, John Cho and Anton Yelchin.

Synopsis:

The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a new ruthless enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

 

To say that I was sceptical going to see the third instalment in the new Star Trek franchise is an understatement. The trailers were dull, the general marketing plan was lacklustre and news of reshoots spelled disaster. So I was happily surprised after finishing this film as I’d just sat through two enjoyable, fun hours of sci-fi action entertainment that completely surpassed my expectations.

Set 2.5 years after Into Darkness, the crew of the Enterprise are 3 years into their 5 year mission. Kirk (Pine) is doubtful of his future, Spock (Quinto) is contemplating »

'Beyond': 'Most Satisfying' Among Rebooted 'Star Trek' Movies, But Gay Sulu a Dramatic Miscalculation

23 July 2016 9:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Star Trek Beyond' with Chris Pine as Captain Kirk: Will movie franchise reboot achieve 'escape velocity'? 'Star Trek Beyond' Review: Movie franchise needs to boldly go where J.J. Abrams has never gone before We're never told what “beyond” refers to in Star Trek Beyond, the 13th film in the venerated sci-fi series. But here's a theory: if the franchise is to regain its footing after the tepid returns of Star Trek Into Darkness, it will have to move beyond J.J. Abrams, the writer/director who used his brand of copycat magic to relaunch the series in 2009. In our reboot era, he's got the canny ability to provide older audiences with enough familiarity to keep them under the tent while giving new audiences enough youthful verve so they don't feel the franchise isn't for them. If you think that's not worth something, see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

Box Office: ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Dominates Opening Weekend, Blasts Toward $60 Million

23 July 2016 8:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount’s “Star Trek Beyond” is dominating at the U.S. box office as the latest entry in the durable franchise heads to a solid $60 million opening weekend, estimates showed Saturday.

The 13th “Star Trek” movie is performing in line with forecasts and will wind up the weekend with more than double the nearest rival — Illumination-Universal’s third frame of hit animated comedy “The Secret Life of Pets” with about $28 million at 4,048 locations. “Pets” will finish with nearly $260 million in its first 17 days.

Fox’s launch of animated comedy “Ice Age: Collision Course” debuted in third place with a somewhat disappointing $21 million at 3,992 sites as “The Secret Life of Pets” blunted its potential attraction in the family space. New Line’s opening of horror-thriller “Lights Out” could edge past the fifth Ice Age film as it was outperforming forecasts with $20.4 million at 2,818 venues.

Sony’s second weekend of “Ghostbusters” could »

Review: "Star Trek Beyond" (2016) Starring Chris Pine, Karl Urban And Zachary Quinto

23 July 2016 3:05 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By John Lemay

Over the years I’ve noticed an interesting phenomena among Star Trek fans which is that most of them love the television series but seem only to tolerate the films. Maybe my perception is off, seeing as how I fall into the category of a non-fan who greatly enjoys the films—namely the ones from the 1980s starring the original cast—but not the TV series from which they were based. For whatever reason, there seems to be a strange sort of disconnect between fans of the TV series and mainstream audiences. Take for example the films that deviated greatly from the series, such as the overly comical Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986) which soared at the box office, while films that most resembled episodes of the TV series—namely the awful Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)—performed below expectations. The rebooted Star Trek of 2009 was also »

Box Office: ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Heads for $60 Million Opening Weekend

22 July 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount’s “Star Trek Beyond” is dominating the U.S. box office, blasting off for an impressive weekend of as much as $60 million at 3,928 locations, early estimates showed Friday.

It’s a solid start for the 13th film in the durable franchise, following a summer that’s seen notably disappointing performances from several sequels.

That negative trend appears to be dragging down Fox’s animated comedy “Ice Age: Collision Course,” which looks to under-perform in the $22 million range at 3,992 venues. The fifth “Ice Age” movie may wind up trailing the third weekend of “Secret Life of Pets” and the second weekend of “Ghostbusters” in a battle for second place.

New Line’s low-cost horror-thriller “Lights Out” is overperforming with initial estimates showing a debut between $15 million and $20 million at 2,818 sites.

Star Trek Beyond,” the third film in the rebooted sci-fi series, opens Friday at 3,928 sites and appears to be performing in line with projections. »

Everything You'll Want to Know About the Actress Who Plays Jaylah in Star Trek Beyond

22 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Star Trek Beyond, the latest installment in the classic franchise, features its all-stars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto back in action as Captain Kirk and Spock in another adventure that's the level of fun you'd expect from the series. The usual gang is back together in the third movie, including Simon Pegg, John Cho, Zoe Saldana, and the late Anton Yelchin, this time facing off with Krall, an intergalactic villain played by Idris Elba. As much as a delight as it is to see Elba on screen, it's another newcomer to the Star Trek universe who really steals the movie. Sofia Boutella plays Jaylah, a badass alien stranded on Krall's planet. Not only does she have the coolest look in the movie, but she's also the film's most dynamic character, who shows extremes of emotional range and tons of charm with what seems like it was supposed to be a sub-supporting role. »

J.J. Abrams says Star Trek 4 is his “favourite Star Trek story that we’ve had”

22 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond may have just opened in cinemas [read our reviews here and here], but producer J.J. Abrams is already talking up the next instalment, which Paramount officially announced last week.

Star Trek 4 will see Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk coming face-to-face with his father George Kirk, with Chris Pine reprising his role from the 2009 reboot, and Abrams has told EW that the plot for the fourth movie is his “favourite Star Trek story that we’ve had.”

“One of the reasons that I’m hoping [Star Trek Beyond] does well is so that we can, without question, get that movie made. It really is an amazing story. It’s really the reason we made the deal with Chris Hemsworth as soon as we could because we really wanted that story to be told, so fingers crossed.”

See Josh Hutcherson’s (Amazing!) ‘Spider-Man’ Audition

22 July 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Just before Andrew Garfield booked the role of Spidey in big-screen Marvel Entertainment reboot “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2010, rumors were flying about the shortlist of actors tapped for the role: Jamie Bell, Alden Ehrenreich, Frank Dillane, Ose Hayble, and Anton Yelchin were among them.  But Josh Hutcherson of “Hunger Games” fame went so far as to record an elaborately choreographed sizzle reel, full of real flips and high-flying kicks, for producers to consider. The comic book–loving actor, only 17 at the time, has the youthful looks and flair for awkwardness required of Peter Parker; what many didn’t know was that he also had the action hero bona fides. Allegedly staged by stunt and fight choreographer Larnell Stovall, the extended fight sequence is so well produced, it’s easy to imagine Hutcherson’s spidey senses tingling.

Second Opinion – Star Trek Beyond (2016)

22 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond, 2016.

Directed by Justin Lin.

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba, and Sofia Boutella

Synopsis:

The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a new ruthless enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

Star Trek Beyond is one of those movies where all of the marketing and promotional material should just be used to wipe asses. Changing directors from J.J. Abrams to Justin Lin isn’t necessarily a drop in leadership quality, but given that Lin is going from absolutely mindless Fast and Furious vehicular carnage action flicks to the next installment of one of the most popular science fiction franchises of all time, it wouldn’t be wrong to expect a different kind of Star Trek, especially judging from the misleading trailers.

‘Star Trek Beyond’s Justin Lin On Family Ties & Ethnic Diversity

San Diego Comic-Con kicked off with a lavish outdoor Imax premiere of Star Trek Beyond and commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s creation. The event had a decided family feel: the entire cast came, and those who could not – Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin – were given touching tributes. At the center was Justin Lin, the Taiwan-born filmmaker best known for taking on the Fast And Furious series when it was running on gas fumes, and transforming it… »

Exclusive Interview: Karl Urban Talks Star Trek Beyond

22 July 2016 9:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The action-packed Star Trek Beyond, the third installment in the new franchise, finally got it right. The 2009 Star Trek rebooted the original series by introducing those iconic sci-fi characters – Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Chekov (Anton Yelchin) and Sulu (John Cho) – as young upstarts joining Starfleet Command, and then cleverly skewed the timeline to create an alternate universe from the original. The 2013 follow-up, Star Trek Into Darkness, seemed to bite off more than it could chew though, with an overly convoluted plot and unnecessary throwbacks, particularly in the way they brought back Khan.

Now, with Star Trek Beyond, they’ve worked out the kinks and have delivered a solid film that is, to date, most closely attuned to the beloved 1960s series. Under the guidance of director Justin Lin (who takes over the reins from J.J. Abrams), and armed with »

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Director Justin Lin Finds the Human in the Epic

22 July 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Justin Lin didn’t realize he was a Trekkie until J.J. Abrams called him out of the blue. Between a Thursday phone call and what ended up a Monday meeting, Lin had dinner with his family, who had emigrated from Taiwan to run an Anaheim grocery store when he was 8 years old. That’s when it hit him that between age 8 and 18 he had grown up with Gene Roddenberry’s “Star Trek” TV series. It was embedded deep inside him.

 

Lin had turned away from directing the seventh installment of the “Fast and Furious” franchise, which grew from 3-6 with worldwide grosses of $158 million for “Tokyo Drift,” $363 million for “Fast & Furious” and $626 million for “Fast Five” to $789 million for “Fast & Furious 6.” (James Wan continued the trajectory when the seventh film earned $1.52 billion.) He was producing and directing TV (“Community,” the “Scorpion” pilot and “True Detective”) and exploring production in China, »
