Simon Pegg shares his thoughts on Roberto Orci directing Star Trek 3

12 August 2014 5:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although we’re yet to have an announcement from Paramount Pictures on who will be directing Star Trek 3, it seems like it’s all but official that Roberto Orci will be taking up the director’s chair vacated by J.J. Abrams, and now star Simon Pegg has echoed that sentiment, sharing a few thoughts on the Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness co-writer taking over the reins on the sci-fi franchise:

“He emailed me before the news broke saying: ‘Hey man, I might be doing this, shall we nerd out?’” Pegg tells the BBC. “I’m really happy he’s doing it as it’s kept within the family kind of thing, it’s not somebody coming in from outside. Bob’s been there since the first Star Trek – by that I mean the 2009 one – so it seemed to make perfect sense that he come in as a »

Watch the return of Coach Ted Lasso featuring Jason Sudekis

11 August 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Jason Sudekis (Horrible Bosses) brought us a skit that featured him as an American football (or soccer) coach who was hired to manage Tottenham Hotspur. Since he was let go from duty (after just six and a half hours), he now finds himself working at NBC as a pundit.

Still inept as ever, watch as Ted Lasso as he doesn’t understand live TV, struggle with time differences and run into someone how looks an awful lot like Everton and USA keeper Tim Howard.

Watch the video below:

Jason Sudekis will return to cinema screens later this year with Horrible Bosses 2 alongside returning cast members Charlie Day (The Lego Movie), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Jennifer Aniston (We’re The Millers), Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) and newcomers Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Christoph Waltz (Muppets Most Wanted).

Casey Affleck in Talks to Star in Disney's The Finest Hours

10 August 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) is in talks to join Chris Pine in Disney's true story adventure drama The Finest Hours

 Million Dollar Arm director Craig Gillespie is helming the project, which is an adaption of the book written by Casey Sherman and Michael J Tougias.

The story is set in 1952 and follows the coast guard rescue of 84 men off Cape Cod after two oil tankers collided and were torn in half by waves during a fierce blizzard.

Affleck and Pine are both incredible actors who seem to fit perfectly in this type of movie. I love this story, and it's sure to make an incredible film. 

Here's the synopsis from the book:

In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal nor'easter in years. As the weather wreaked havoc on land, the freezing Atlantic became a wind-whipped zone of peril. »

First Look at Christoph Waltz in Horrible Bosses 2

9 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Warner Bros. released a new photo from Horrible Bosses 2 giving us our first look at Christoph Waltz in the film. In the image he's having a little chat with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis on a golf course. Chris Pine, who plays Waltz's douchebag son, is standing behind him.

Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company. 

In case you missed the funny teaser trailer for the film, click here. The movie is set to be released on November 26th, and it looks like it's going to be hilarious. »

7 August 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For a little while, it was up in the air so whether or not Christoph Waltz would have a role in the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2.

But now, we finally get a good look at Waltz in the film as he chats with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis on a golf course, with Chris Pine right behind him as his douchebag son.

Back in the spring, Star Trek lead Chris Pine was slated to star in Disney's Coast Guard drama The Finest Hours with the studio's Million Dollar Arm director Craig Gillespie at the helm. Now Pine has a co-star as Deadline reports Gone Baby Gone and Ocean's Eleven franchise star Casey Affleck is in talks for a pivotal role in the story set back in 1952 and based on the non-fiction book of the same name about how two oil tankers were split in two, dumping all 84 of their crew members into the swirling sea, caught in the middle of a nor'easter, a macro-scale storm along the upper East Coast of the Us and Atlantic Canada.

10 Movies That Did Star Trek Better Than Star Trek‏

1 August 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Star Trek Into Darkness – the grammatically iffy follow-up to Jj Abrams’ 2009 big screen reboot of the classic sci-fi series – was certainly a box office success, recouping its considerable budget of $185 million and then some, making it the most financially successful Trek movie of all time. The spit-shined new Enterprise and its young, sexy crew were considerably less well received by critics, however, with some of the plot twists and call backs to earlier instalments riling fans up rather than rewarding them. Really, it didn’t matter what Into Darkness did – so long as it carried on being the sort of film the first new Star Trek was, they weren’t going to be happy.

You’ve gotta sympathise with the Trekkies (Trekkers? Trekstars?) a little, because the 21st century Star Trek doesn’t bear all that much of a resemblance to the Gene Rodenberry source material. Superficially it does, »
