George Lucas: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the 'Star Wars' Guru

14 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

George Lucas didn't just create the "Star Wars" universe. The filmmaker, who turns 71 on May 14, pretty much created the cinematic universe we live in now, the ones whose cornerstones include the Thx sound system at your multiplex, the Pixar movies that have dominated animation for the past 20 years, and the Industrial Light & Magic special-effects house, whose aesthetic has ruled the Hollywood blockbuster for nearly four decades. He's the pioneer of the effects-driven action spectacle and the conversion from celluloid to digital, the two trends that, for better and worse, have defined Hollywood's output for nearly 20 years.

As ubiquitous as Lucas and his creations loom in our cinematic dreamscapes, there's still a lot that most people don't know about him, from how he got his start to the famous folks who mentored him or were mentored by him, from the size of his fortune to what he plans to do now »

Film Review: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

21 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three years after saving New York from an alien apocalypse, Marvel’s superhero all-stars once again find the weight of the world — or, at least, an airborne chunk of Eastern Europe — thrust upon their mighty shoulders in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” a super-sized spandex soap opera that’s heavy on catastrophic action but surprisingly light on its feet, and rich in the human-scale emotion that can cut even a raging Hulk down to size. Having gotten over the hump of assembling his six main characters in 2012’s “The Avengers,” returning writer-director Joss Whedon brings a looser, more inventive and stylish touch to this skillful follow-up, which finds our now S.H.I.E.L.D.-less defenders facing off against a man-made enemy more dangerous than any alien life form. Jump-starting the summer movie season on May 1, “Age” may well cool its heels in theaters until the dog days of August, »

Idw adapting Nicholas Meyer’s The Seven-Per-Cent Solution

6 April 2015 1:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Idw Publishing has announced that it is to adapt Nicholas Meyer’s (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) bestselling mystery novel The Seven-Per-Cent-Solution into a five-part comic book series from writers Scott Tipton and David Tipton and artist Ron Joseph.

“I’m delighted to help translate my novel, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, for a new audience in a new venue and hope the results will justify the effort!” said Meyer.

From the mind of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan writer/director Nicholas Meyer, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution is a “rediscovered” Sherlock Holmes adventure that recounts the astonishing and previously unknown collaboration of Sherlock Holmes and Sigmund Freud, as recorded by Dr. John H. Watson. In addition to recounting this remarkable collaboration on a case of diabolic conspiracy, it reveals the real identity of Holmes’s nemesis Professor Moriarty, a dark secret shared by Sherlock and his brother Mycroft Holmes, »

Star Trek producer Harve Bennett dies, aged 84

6 March 2015 8:23 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Trek producer Harve Bennett has died at the age of 84.

During his career, he produced four Star Trek movies, including 1982's The Wrath of Khan.

The success of the movie led Bennett to produce the next three instalments of the series.

He worked alongside the late Leonard Nimoy, who passed away on February 27, in the four films.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan's director Nicholas Meyer said: "He was a remarkable man and he was unpretentious and self-effacing. I don't think there would be a Star Trek franchise without him.

"He rescued it. He's endangered of being lost in the shuffle, but he's the guy who figured it out."

As well as working on Star Trek, Bennett produced the TV series Mod Squad, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. »

Leonard Nimoy: an appreciation

3 March 2015 3:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A few words and thoughts on the life and work of Leonard Nimoy, who left us last week.

Leonard Nimoy passed away on February 27th 2015. As we write this he is being laid to rest in a ceremony in Los Angeles. For everyone who was unable to be there, we at Den Of Geek would like to take a moment to appreciate all that he and his work meant to the geeks of the world whose lives he touched both personally and professionally.

Although Nimoy had a varied career that saw him work as an actor, director, singer and photographer, there's no question that he will forever be associated with the role of Spock, which he played on the original Star Trek TV series. Like many actors who pass through the franchise, his life and career was dominated by just three short years he spent acting in the show. It »

Mindy Newell: Idic*

“Oh, my. The simplest would be to say, ‘Languh yoren osta lebn.’ It’s a typical Yiddish expression. Parents say it to their kids. It means, ‘You should live many years’.” • On the Jewish roots of “live long and prosper”

“There was a very small crowd – miniscule compared to the crowd that he gathered later – at a private home in Los Angeles. And we were standing on the back patio, waiting for him. And he came through the house, saw me and immediately put his hand up in the Vulcan gesture. He said, ‘They told me you were here.’ We had a wonderful, brief conversation and I said, ‘It would be logical if you would become president.’“ • On meeting Senator Barak Obama during his first Presidential campaign

“I have been, and shall always be, your friend.” Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan

Live Forever and Prosper: Leonard Nimoy, Rip

2 March 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Leonard Nimoy was many things. He was an actor, poet, director, photographer, philosopher, and singer. To most he was Spock, the half-Vulcan, half-human chief science officer of the USS Enterprise in the 23rd Century on several different iterations of Star Trek. Nimoy was even part of a plastic model kit from the 1970s, pointing his phaser at this three-headed snake-thing that never appeared in any episode of classic “Trek” that I can remember. The box for this model kit declares that Mr. Spock is “Star Trek’s most popular character,” and this is true.   Nimoy wrestled with being made into the kind of icon that begets action figures in his 1977 book I Am Not Spock, before throwing in the towel with his 1995 follow-up, I Am Spock. And Spock endured. He died in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), only to come back to life in Star Trek III: the Search for Spock »

Leonard Nimoy lived long and prospered

27 February 2015 5:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Film Nerd 2.0 has become one of the things I am most closely identified with, which is fine by me. I think there is real value in talking about how we introduce media to our children, and there's absolutely value in talking about how that media affects them. It wasn't a column that I consciously set out to create, though. It just sort of gradually became clear that it was something I wanted to write, and the turning point, the moment of actual creation, was all because of "Star Trek." For Toshi, the 2009 film was not just his entry point to "Star Trek," but also his entry point to movies in general. When I took him to the theater to see the film, he stood the entire time, and he didn't want to be touched or spoken to or distracted in any way. He was fascinated, and he had a million questions afterwards. »

Remembering Leonard Nimoy: Spock’s Top ‘Star Trek’ Moments

27 February 2015 12:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From the beginning, Mr. Spock was the conscience of “Star Trek,” and Leonard Nimoy was the actor who transcended all of the sci-fi trappings to deliver on the challenge of portraying a character who claimed to have no emotions.

Nimoy brought to Spock the depth and complexity that made viewers immediately intrigued with the stern-faced Vulcan, the first officer and right hand to William Shatner’s larger-than-life Captain Kirk. “Star Trek” devotees cheered when Spock’s beloved logic would save the day, and they wept when he died (sort of) in “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.”

But it all began with Nimoy’s work in 79 episodes of the original series that aired on NBC from 1966-69. Here are some of the highlights of Mr. Spock’s “Star Trek” career in the original series and beyond.

Leonard Nimoy, Spock of 'Star Trek', Passes Away at 83

27 February 2015 8:46 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Leonard Nimoy, who gained legions of fans for his portrayal of Spock in the original Star Trek TV series, has passed away at the age of 83. The actor died earlier today at his home in the Bel-Air area of Los Angeles, with his wife Susan Bay Nimoy confirming that he passed away from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Leonard Nimoy announced earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with the disease, which he attributed to several years of smoking, a habit which he had quit several decades ago. He was hospitalized earlier this week.

Leonard Nimoy was born on March 26, 1931 in Boston, Massachussetts to Ukrakinan-Jewish immigrants Dora and Max Nimoy, who owned a barbershop. He made his acting debut at the age of 20 in the 1951 film Queen For a Day, and had several guest-starring spots on shows such as Dragnet and Sea Hunt before he was cast as Spock »

That's Illogical, Captain: Why Star Trek: Into Darkness Screws Everything Up

19 January 2015 12:24 PM, PST | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Forgive me. I am always quite late to feature films, since I refuse to pay $15 to watch 20 minutes worth of ads, and then (all too often) deal with annoying people during the film, often missing important dialogue. So I wait until most films are on cable before I see them.

It is for this reason that I saw Star Trek Into Darkness almost a year late. [N.B. If you have not yet seen Stid, this article is one huge spoiler.] And anyone who is familiar with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (and the "Space Seed" episode of the original television series) will realize that Star Trek: Into Darkness hopelessly destroys the Star Trek timeline. [N.B.  I actually avoided the new Star Trek franchise entirely because I am an original Trekker (not Trekkie!), and could not imagine “prequels” being any good. I ended up being charmed by the first film -- against my will.]

It is important to note here that during an interview when the first film of the new series came out, one or the other of director J.J. Abrams, writer-producer Alex Kurtzman and producer Bryan Burke stated that it was »
