Star Trek Beyond Wins Comic-Con Weekend Box Office with $59.6 M

50 minutes ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's already been a very good year for animated movies at the box office, with four of this year's biggest animated hits cracking the top 10 so far, Finding Dory, Zootopia, The Secret Life of Pets and Kung Fu Panda 3. Despite a solid history at the box office, the latest installment of the Ice Age franchise, Ice Age: Collision Course, will likely not be added to this list, as it suffered the worse opening in franchise history. This allowed the highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel Star Trek Beyond to take the top spot with $59.6 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that Star Trek Beyond earned an impressive $15,173 per-screen average from 3,928 theaters, but it still represents the lowest opening in this rebooted franchise. Director J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek opened with $75.2 million, en route to $257.7 million domestic and $385.6 million worldwide, from a $150 million budget. 2013's Star Trek Beyond opened with $70.1 million with a domestic total of $228.7 and $467.3 million, »

Box Office: ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Racks Up Solid $59.6 Million, ‘Lights Out’ Scores

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star Trek Beyond” debuted to a solid $59.6 million this weekend, signaling that after six television series, 13 movies and 50 years in the pop culture conversation, there’s still life left in one of Hollywood’s most durable franchises.

And there are more intergalactic missions to come. As boon to Trekkies, Paramount took the unusual step of announcing yet another sequel was in the works even before this latest USS Enterprise adventure sailed into theaters. The studio has lined up Chris Hemsworth to reprise his role as Capt. Kirk’s father despite the fact that he was incinerated in a spaceship disaster in a previous film. In science-fiction, it seems, death is merely a temporary predicament.

“You can count on one hand the brands that have this kind of longevity and viability over time,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. “These characters are so clearly defined and people just respond to their sense of camaraderie. »

Thor 3 Gets a New Ragnarok Logo

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the official Comic-Con schedule was released a few weeks ago, there weren't many details about Marvel Studios' Hall H panel on Saturday. We already knew that Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would be part of the festivities, thanks to social media updates from directors James Gunn and Scott Derrickson, but nothing else about the panel was known. Part of the festivities included the reveal of a new logo for Thor: Ragnarok, along with a unique skit put together by director Takika Waititi and a sizzle reel.

The logo debuted on Twitter, but we're not sure if this unique skit and will make its way online quite yet. The video is presented as a mini documentary that shows how stressed out Thor has become, and he has moved to New Zealand to become roommates with a guy named Darryl. There are scenes where Thor is talking with Bruce Banner, »

It also features the new Marvel Studios logo at the top, which was revealed to the Hall H crowd at the very beginning of the panel.

ARagnarok sizzle reel was also shown, along with production art that revealed Planet Hulk and Thor and Hulk facing off in a gladiator ring scenes.

Hulk’s Gladiator Armor From Thor: Ragnarok Revealed At Comic-Con

23 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

There have been rumours about Thor: Ragnarok adapting Planet Hulk for some time, and while that may ultimately boil down to little more than the Jade Giant fighting in a gladiatorial arena, we now know for sure that it’s actually happening. This was confirmed earlier today when Marvel revealed the hero’s armour and weapons at their booth at Comic-Con in San Diego.

It’s fair to say that these props look more than a little plastic, but bear in mind that The Hulk is a fully CGI character, so these no doubt will be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, too. It’s previously been said that a de-powered Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is pitted against The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) at the behest of The Grandmaster in the movie, and if what we see above is any indication, it’s going to be incredibly epic.

First Look At The Jade Giant's Planet Hulk Armor And Weapons From Thor: Ragnarok

23 July 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Well, it definitely appears as if Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder will end up coming to blows with the Green Goliath in Thor: Ragnarok as Marvel has offered up a first look at the gladiator armour The Hulk will wear in the highly anticipated Phase 3 movie. As you can see, the Avenger will be sporting a look which is pretty much identical to his comic book counterpart in the popular Planet Hulk storyline.  Chances are that the movie is going to be highlighted during the Marvel Studios panel in Hall H later today, and if that does end up being the case, here's hoping we get to at least see a piece of concept art featuring The Hulk fully suited up in this gear wielding those brutal looking weapons (all of which will no doubt be brought to life in Thor: Ragnarok with special effects seeing as the hero »

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.

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 »

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.”

Comic Con over in San Diego is officially off and running and was nicely kicked off with the world premiere of Star Trek Beyond on Wednesday night. Well, producer J.J. Abrams is also in town to promote the film, and he caught up with the folks over at Entertainment Weekly where the conversation quickly moved on to the next installment in the franchise which has already been announced.

Star Trek 4 will see Chris Hemsworth return as Captain James T. Kirk’s father, George, with the Thor actor already signed to reprise his very brief role from the 2009 movie, which Abrams directed.

'Star Trek Beyond' Beams Into Theaters Alongside 'Ice Age 5' and 'Lights Out'

21 July 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Two more sequels arrive this weekend and, like several sequels this year, both are looking to underperform when compared to the previous installment in their respective franchises. Star Trek Beyond and Ice Age: Collision Course represent the 21st and 22nd wide release sequels this year after only four (Finding Dory, Captain America: Civil War, The Purge: Election Year and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) have been able to outperform their franchise predecessor at the domestic box office. Also opening this weekend is the new PG-13 thriller Lights Out from producer James Wan as well as the moderate roll out of Fox Searchlight's Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie while Hillary's America expands nationwide into over 1,200 theaters. Targeting a first place finish is Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the rebooted franchise and the first with someone other than J.J. Abrams at the helm. Those duties fell on the shoulders of »

Marvelous DA7E: Comic Con Kicks Off!

20 July 2016 6:16 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

San Diego Comic Con 2016 is upon us, and what Marvel is going to reveal is somewhat of a mystery on the movie and television side.

We know what properties are going to be featured based on advertising that has been released prior to the Con, let’s take a look at those.

Doctor Strange

With some new concept art and new posters being issued, it’s probably no surprise to you that the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is probably going to show off some stuff. Here’s hoping for another trailer, plus a little bit more of the plot along with some charming Benedict Cumberbatch.

I don’t have a ton of lingering questions about this movie, though I am curious as to what they’ll ultimately end up revealing. Thus far, the trailer focused on Stephen Strange’s accident and his introduction to magic and the »

J.J. Abrams Doesn’t Think We’ll Ever See William Shatner In The New Star Trek Movies

20 July 2016 5:38 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

No doubt one of the coolest things about the rebooted Star Trek franchise is that rather than scrapping everything that came before to start afresh, it actually takes place in an entirely new timeline. In previous instalments of the trilogy, that meant Leonard Nimoy was able to reprise his role as the original Spock in order to guide the younger versions of these classic characters, but many fans have wondered whether or not other familiar faces could follow him, including franchise mainstay William Shatner.

The problem is that his Captain Kirk actually died in Star Trek: Generations, something which obviously complicates a return. Talking in a recent interview to promote the release of Star Trek: Beyond, producer J.J. Abrams weighed in on why he can’t picture Shatner ever getting the chance to show up in these new movies.

“Obviously it’s Star Trek, nearly anything is possible. There »
