Shailene Woodley and Theo James: 'Divergent nothing like Hunger Games'

2 April 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ever since Veronica Roth's first young adult novel Divergent was released in 2011, comparisons to Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games have been rife.

While both series focus on a young woman who rebels against her dystopian society, Divergent stars Shailene Woodley and Theo James were swift to dismiss the comparison when Digital Spy sat down with them earlier this week.

"The storylines are inherently very different," Woodley said. "At the end of the day, it's like comparing Star Wars to Star Trek."

Director Neil Burger also discussed his decision not to stay on for upcoming sequels Insurgent and Allegiant, explaining that Lionsgate's tight release window made the scheduling impossible.

"It was always going to be a crazy schedule," said Burger. "I was going to be editing this movie while I was prepping the next movie which was going to shoot in May... it was too crazy."

William Shatner To Star In Home-Renovation Series for Scripps’ Diy

17 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Set viewers on “stunned”: William Shatner the popular actor whose portrayal of heroes like Captain Kirk from “Star Trek” has captivated TV fans for decades, is about to star in a reality series about renovating his house.

As an actor, Shatner is no stranger to action roles. He shot phaser beams in “Trek” and drew a police revolver as “T.J. Hooker.” But the prospect of wielding a crowbar or a bag of plaster gave him a feeling of apprehension. Sgt. Hooker “could handle a gun” said Shatner. “But I don’t know about a hammer.”

The Shatner Project,” slated to debut on Scripps Networks’ Diy cable network in October for five 30-minute episodes (Shatner says six may be possible), will put the actor and his wife, Elizabeth, at the center of what Shatner says is just good television: “This is like a dramatic show with a revelation at the end, »

William Shatner | My family values

The actor who made his mark as Star Trek's Captain James T Kirk talks about growing up in Montreal and his belief that what's on the mantelpiece reveals a lot about a marriage

My father, Joseph, had a small company making men's clothing in Montreal, where I grew up. He was lower-middle class. He struggled and worked very hard. He was gone a lot of the time and when he came home he was tired, so he would read the paper and on the weekends he'd rest. My mother, Anne, kept the house, but she was interested in doing more and always had a higher ambition than just being in the house. But there was no way for her to make that work. She would try to do small things – work as an actress, and she gave elocution lessons.

Neither of my parents really influenced me, although I suppose »

7 March 2014 12:38 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

First airing on April 6, 1967 as the penultimate episode of Star Trek’s first season, City on the Edge of Forever is considered to be 100 Best TV Episodes of All-Time in a poll conducted by TV Guide.  Idw Publishing has decided to revisit the original teleplay written by Harlan Ellison which was not broadcast and turn his tale into a comic book miniseries.  Handling the adaptation duties is the creative team behind Star Trek: Tng/Doctor Who, writing brothers Scott and David Tipton, and artist J.K. Woodward.

From the future all the way through 1930s America, Kirk and Spock race to apprehend a renegade criminal and restore the order of the universe.

“Presenting Harlan Ellison’s brilliant original script for City on the Edge of Forever has been a goal of ours since Idw first began publishing Star Trek comics in 2007,” stated series editor and Idw Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. »

Idw to release Harlan Ellison's 'Star Trek' tale as new graphic novel

7 March 2014 11:46 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Everything in Hollywood has a story, but to pop culture nerds, perhaps no story is more interesting than the one surrounding the controversy behind acclaimed writer Harlan Ellison and his popular Star Trek tale, “The City on the Edge of Forever.”

Ellison wrote the original teleplay for the penultimate episode of the first season in early 1966, which he notes, “was changed vastly when the episode aired” on April 6, 1967. “The City on the Edge of Forever” focuses on the USS Enterprise discovering a portal through space and time, which ultimately leads to an accidental altering of history that Kirk and Spock, »

Harlan Ellison Star Trek Original Series Teleplay to Be Released as Comic Miniseries

6 March 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

This is great news on all sorts of levels. Today Idw has announced that it will be releasing a new miniseries based on Harlan Ellison‘s screenplay of Star Trek original series episode “City on the Edge of Forever,” with cover art by Juan Ortiz.

So let’s break this down a little. First, new Star Trek comic miniseries, excellent. That it’s based on the screenplay for the episode where Kirk, Spock, and Bones end up in the U.S. in the 1930′s, excellent. That it’s based on the original screenplay that few have ever seen, which won Hugo and Writer’s Guild of America awards and which was written by Harlan Ellison (The Twilight Zone, Tales From the Darkside, Babylon 5, The Outer Limits, etc., etc.) and it is being developed with his approval and input, even more excellent.

And finally, that it will feature covers by Juan Ortiz, »

'King of the Nerds' puts George Takei in prison: Video

27 February 2014 9:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"King of the Nerds" loves its nerdy guest stars. More specifically, "King of the Nerds" likes to put its nerdy guest stars into strange situations. That is definitely the case with George Takei on Thursday's (Feb. 27) episode -- he ends up behind bars.

Sure, they are rubber bars, but the concept is still the same. The Nerds get the challenge of saving him, and it sounds like Jack is the victor.

The show probably can never find another nerd icon quite as game for anything as Takei. In addition to his iconic role as Mr. Sulu on the original "Star Trek" series, Takei has reinvented himself as an activist and a meme generator in the Internet age.

What more could a nerd want?

"King of the Nerds" airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on TBS. »

George Takei's husband Brad Altman may hail from Phoenix, Ariz., but according to the famous Star Trek star, the couple may not be returning to his partner's home state anytime soon. The 76-year-old actor has penned a scathing letter in which he slammed Arizona's recent anti-gay bill, dubbed a religious freedom bill by conservative lawmakers, which essentially allows any business owner who is asserting their religious beliefs to refuse service to gays. The Arizona Legislation gave final approval to the bill on Thursday evening, which has been met with a serious amount of backlash. Similar religious legislation has been introduced in Ohio, Mississippi, Idaho, South Dakota, Tennessee and Oklahoma, but »
