Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight Join ‘Man From Earth’ Sequel

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

Vanessa Williams, Sterling Knight, Brittany Curran, Carlos Knight and Akemi Look are joining “The Man From Earth: Holocene,” a sequel to 2007’s sci-fier “The Man From Earth.”

David Lee Smith, who portrayed the lead character John Oldman, and William Katt will return. The storyline for the sequel is being kept under wraps until the film’s release in 2017.

The 2007 original, penned by sci-fi writer/author Jerome Bixby, centered on a college professor who’s actually a centuries-old caveman. Richard Schenkman is returning to direct with shooting starting next week in Southern California.

The original script was the last work from Bixby, best known for his 1953 story “It’s a Good Life,” which was the basis for a 1961 episode of “The Twilight Zone” and was included in “Twilight Zone: The Movie.” He also wrote four episodes for the “Star Trek” series and co-wrote the story upon which the movie “Fantastic Voyage” was based. »

5 Best Comedy Roasts of All Time

7 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If Betty White has taught us anything, it's that being old doesn't mean you're not hilarious. It also doesn't mean you're not really, really vulgar when the battlefield of comedy needs you to drop some serious F-bombs.

By entertainment standards, the roast -- a concept originated by the Friar's Club fraternity way back in 1907 -- is an absolute dinosaur. But it's like a T. rex that assaults you with politically incorrect character assassination and ridiculous celebrity humiliation instead of killer jaws and tiny arms -- old as it is, the roast walks the razor's edge of "too funny" and "too far." Here are five times the comics got that balance exactly right.

1. Charlie Sheen (2011)

"I respect Charlie Sheen, I do ... not his body of work ... it's all been very Christian Slater-ish ... he sucks, but he's good, but he sucks at the same time." And so it was that the »

Canada Celebrates Trek's 50th With Coins, Stamps

17 May 2016 5:56 PM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Did you know that Capt. Kirk is Canadian?Ok, that's a bit of a stretch. But William Shatner, who played Capt. Kirk in the original "Star Trek," is most definitely Canadian, hailing from Montreal. Long before he commanded a Federation starship, Shatner was performing at the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario, and appearing on the Canadian "Howdy Doody" show as Ranger Bob.With that connection, Canada is clearly excited to celebrate its connection to Star Trek during the show's 50th Anniversary with a series of coins, stamps and special exhibits.Shatner was just in Ottawa last week to attend the opening of the Starfleet Academy Experience. This new interactive educational exhibit casts visitors as Starfleet cadets, highlighting current and near-future technology within a Star Trek-themed »

9 May 2016 2:37 PM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

Mainstream television fans might know him from his days on "The Patty Duke Show," but original "Star Trek" fans are now having to say good-bye to Nilz Baris.That was the character William Schallert played in the popular "Trek" episode "The Trouble With Troubles." Schallert, who would go on to a prolific television and film career with more than 370 credits, died Sunday in Pacific Palisades, California.

Baris is the one who brings Capt. Kirk and the USS Enteprise to Deep Space Station K-7 to protect the grain, which was later consumed quite quickly by Tribbles.That was enough to get Baris to threaten Kirk with a hearing »

Star Trek Star Scolds Marvel on White Washing

4 May 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 George Takei, who played Sulu on the classic Star Trek TV series and the follow-up movie versions, is not buying Marvel’s excuses for casting a white actress to play an established Asian character. Takei argues that the decision to cast Tilda Swinton is symbolic of a much deeper systemic problem regarding the casting of white actors in Asian roles.

 Dr. Strange has a new enemy in George Takei. Taki, Aka Hikaru Sulu, helmsman of the Starship Enterprise, who was one of the pioneers for strong Asian roles on television, is taking to social media to chastise Marvel Studios for their decision to change Dr. Strange’s long-established Asian mentor the Ancient One to a Celtic character.

 Marvel’s stated reasoning for the race-change was that the character of the Ancient One was created as a Tibetan sage, and Marvel/Disney fear that this aspect of the character would be »

George Takei shames Marvel white-washing The Ancient One in Doctor Strange

3 May 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The topic of white-washing has been in the news a lot lately, following the first image of Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell (which was denounced by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen) and the casting of Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. The latter of which has caused George Takei to take to Facebook to discuss the issue.

Takei was responding to this article, in which Marvel announce they cast Swinton in the role – traditionally a male Asian character – to appease the Asian market. The former Star Trek star responded, “So let me get this straight. You cast a white actress so you wouldn’t hurt sales…in Asia? This backpedaling is nearly as cringeworthy as the casting. Marvel must think we’re all idiots.”

“Marvel already addressed the Tibetan question by setting the action and The Ancient One in Kathmandu, Nepal in the film, »

George Takei on Doctor Strange controversy: 'Marvel must think we're all idiots'

Star Trek actor steps into row over screenwriter’s suggestion that studio cast Tilda Swinton in forthcoming superhero epic to appease China

Star Trek actor George Takei has hit out at claims by a Marvel screenwriter that the studio “whitewashed” a traditionally Tibetan character in forthcoming superhero epic Doctor Strange to appease China.

Takei, a regular critic of Hollywood’s habit of sidelining actors of east Asian extraction in favour of white performers, took to Facebook to lambast comments made by Doctor Strange screenwriter C Robert Cargill in April. In an interview with the Double Toasted podcast, Cargill suggested Marvel had one eye on sensitivities over Tibet in the world’s most populous nation when the studio cast white actor Tilda Swinton as the traditionally Asian mentor to Doctor Strange, the Ancient One.

‘Star Trek’ Lawsuit: Copyright of Klingon Language in Question

28 April 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CBS and Paramount’s lawsuit against the makers of a fan-made “Star Trek” film took a cheeky turn Thursday when a brief was filed on behalf of the defendants arguing the merits of whether the Klingon language could be copyrighted. The bulk of the argument, as laid out in a brief authored by Language Creation Society’s Marc Randazza, is that a language cannot be copyrighted. “It would not take a Vulcan to explain their logic — even the Pakleds would know that nobody can ‘own’ a language,” read the brief, in part.

A Town Called Vulcan: Star Trek Haven of the North

19 April 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stardate, 2016. We start off for… hold up. I have a confession. I am not a Trekkie. I owe no allegiance to the myriad TV iterations, although I am fond of the original mid-’60s series and their subsequent big screen adventures (except for The Final Frontier—I am reasonably lucid). However, this particular voyage is co-captained by my wife, Michelle, who has a deep fondness for the original gang and their follow-up crew of The Next Generation (which I don’t like, and yet she still married me). She can identify scenes by hearing orchestral movements from the series and the films. In short, she is a Trekkie (and yes, I asked her permission to call her that—I’m not insane).

Okay, let’s try this again. My wife and I leave the big city of Calgary, Alberta behind for a day trip to visit the Trekcetera Museum, located »

A documentary paying tribute to Leonard Nimoy has its first full trailer...

Just over a year since the still keenly-felt loss of Leonard Nimoy, a documentary remembering his legacy is nearing release.

For The Love Of Spock is directed by Adam Nimoy, Leonard Nimoy's son, and it features interviews with Star Trek figures across the long history of the series. The film is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in the Us later this month, and will then be made available via streaming services primarily later in 2016.

The origins of the project go back to before Leonard Nimoy's death, and here's how Adam Nimoy pitched the project last year on its Kickstarter appeal page...

Last year, just before Thanksgiving, I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books »
