At one point it was thought Star Trek 3 would be titled Star Trek Forever, but then Star Trek Beyond become the go-to title for the upcoming film and today director Justin Lin took to Twitter to confirm the title and release the first set picture from the now-shooting sequel. "Let the next Starfleet voyage begin," posted Lin in his tweet along with a Starfleet patch. One could assume a lot from this as it most likely (and hopefully I might add) means we will officially begin the iconic five-year mission of the starship Enterprise to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations and boldly go where no man has gone before. Enough of Earth already, let's keep things moving in space shall wec Star Trek Beyond is set for a July 8, 2016 release. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin and John Cho return along »

Either Tyrese Gibson really likes to fuel rumors and speculation, or we just might have our John Stewart. After recent reports that he might be up for the role of John Stewart in Justice League as well as the rebooted Green Lantern film, Gibson has taken to Instagram and the press to hint that he might already be cast. In an interview with Et, Tyrese had some interesting things to say about recent rumors that he and Chris Pine might be teaming up in the upcoming Green Lantern film. "I took the oath. I had a meeting at Warner Bros. and certain things were said and talked about," he said. Gibson continues, "You know, listen, there are certain things I can't speak on. But I will say that, however way this works out, it's definitely the fans' fault. I was at home minding my own business and fans start creating »

If – and despite the studio’s driving need for franchises and the evergreen nature of the title, it is still just 'if' – Paramount decides to make a Star Trek 4, it can count on Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock reporting for duty. Actors Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have renegotiated their contracts to allow for a fourth Trek adventure, in a move that also boosts their salary.It’s all part of deal negotiations that have taken place as the third Star Trek movie – called, at least for now, Star Trek Beyond – finally cranks up the ol’ warp drive and moves into production, with Pine, Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg and the rest scoring wage raises along the way.Not much is known about the third Trek movie’s plot so far – rumours have included more action with the Klingons – and Pegg, who has co-written the current script with Doug Jung, »
Yesterday it was announced that production is underway on the third instalment of the Star Trek franchise – reportedly titled Star Trek Beyond – but it seems that Paramount Pictures is already looking further ahead on the five year mission.

Furious 7 actor Tyrese Gibson has devoted a great deal of his social media presence to teasing the possibility that he may play Green Lantern John Stewart in the DC Cinematic Universe. He began campaigning hard for the role back in January, when some fan art planted the idea in his head. Since then, he’s even gone so far as to visit Warner Brothers for a meeting about the role. We don’t yet know what that meeting may have led to, but if Gibson’s latest teases are any indication, we could find out as soon as San Diego Comic-Con next month.
Following rumors that Chris Pine was still circling the role of Hal Jordan – despite being in talks for the role of Wonder Woman love interest Steve Trevor – and word that 2020’s Green Lantern reboot would in fact focus on more than just one power-ring wielding human, »

When Warner Bros. announced its big DC Movie Universe plans, with release dates going up to the year 2020, we learned that one of their far off projects is a new Green Lantern movie. The Ryan Reynolds-fronted 2011 film was something of a misfire, but following Zack Snyder’s creation of a new interconnected universe, WB wants to try again. Given that the Green Lantern reboot isn’t set for release until 2020, we didn’t necessarily expect to hear much news about the project for a while. But Snyder is assembling the new Justice League for at least a cameo capacity in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to set up the two-part Justice League films, so casting for the oath-taking superhero may well be underway. A rumor surfaced a few days ago that Chris Pine—who is reportedly in talks to play the love interest of Gal Gadot’s titular »

While filming is only just beginning on Star Trek 3 (possibly titled Star trek Beyond), we’re already getting word on the fourth instalment of the Starship Enteprise’s rebooted adventures, with Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine’s contract negotiations for the third movie leaving them with the option for a fourth Star Trek movie. At the moment, they are the only members of the principal cast with the option, though this doesn’t rule them out for a third sequel if it ever materialises. But this is still some ways off, and we should really focus on the Star Trek movie coming our way next year, with principal photography currently taking place at the Squamish Boulders site in British Columbia (rocky terrain was always a favourite of the original Star Trek series). With four time Fast & Furious director Justin Lin at the helm, working from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, »

Over the past few months, Fast & Furious star Tyrese Gibson has been lobbying hard for the role of John Stewart / Green Lantern in Warner Bros.’ DC Cinematic Universe, and he’s been at it again this week, teasing the possibility of his casting during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“There are certain things I can’t speak on, but I will say, however this works out, it’s definitely the fans’ fault.

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning. For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing. Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women. And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, both Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have signed on for Star Trek 4, despite the fact that Star Trek 3 has just started filming. THR says the move was a condition of Pine and Quinto's huge raises for the third film, which the duo won by arguing that they are way more famous now than when they signed on for the series back in 2007. (There is also a complicated bit about California labor laws and seven-year contracts.) If nothing else, this news proves that neither Kirk nor Spock will die in Star Trek 3 — or if they do, they'll just be brought back from the dead, a franchise-preserving move both the original film series and ST3 director Justin Lin are intimately familiar with. As Spock once said, the needs of the many executives outweigh the needs of the actor. »

Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have reportedly renegotiated their deals and have been granted an option for a fourth installment in the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise at Paramount Pictures and Skydance Entertainment.
Pine is said to have scored about $6 million for the deal as the third installment of the film series begins production this week in Vancouver. The new deals are said to have added as much as $10-15 million to the film's budget.
The raises are big jumps for the actors. Pine earned only $600,000 for the 2009 movie, $1.5 million for 'Into Darkness' and was originally to have been paid $3 million for the third film.

Star Trek 3, which is being referred to as Star Trek Beyond in some circles, just started shooting this past week. But Paramount is already planning Star Trek 4. Both Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, who play Captain James T. Kirk and Spock, respectively, have nabbed big pay raises after renegotiating their contracts for the third movie, according to THR. And both are now confirmed to return in a fourth installment.
Star Trek 3 is currently shooting in Vancouver, with Paramount and Skydance Entertainment securing their new contracts with the stars at the very last minute. The raises have added an additional $10 to $15 million to the budget. The rushed negotiations are somewhat blamed on the upcoming sequel's slow development process. And the raises come courtesy of its cast's current rise to power in Hollywood. Especially Chris Pine, who is said to have scored $6 million for his deal, and Zoe Saldana, whose »
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.
Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.
Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

The Academy’s Board of Governors made the selections on Tuesday. »

At the beginning of the year, Furious 7 star Tyrese Gibson kicked off his campaign to play Green Lantern in the DC Cinematic Universe. Although the actor met with Warner Bros in January, there hasn.t been any new developments other than Gibson.s persistent enthusiasm to wield the power ring on the big screen. Now after several months of silence, Gibson is hinting that he may be moving closer to playing the Emerald Knight. Earlier this week after the rumor hit that Chris Pine is closing in on a deal to play Hal Jordan, the first human member of the Green Lantern Corps, Gibson posted this piece of fan-art on Instagram. On the left Pine has been made up to look like Jordan, while Gibson is suited up as fan favorite John Stewart on the right.
