Star Trek: was Cumberbatch supposed to be Gary Mitchell?

27 July 2016 7:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 28, 2016

Was Benedict Cumberbatch originally going to play a different villain in Star Trek Into Darkness? Ryan looks at the clues...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness.

It was among the worst-kept movie secrets of 2013: the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villain in Star Trek Into Darkness. Long before the movie's release, speculation had swirled around the character's anonymous-sounding name: John Harrison. Clearly, fans realised, it was a cover for something far more dramatic.

Wasn't it more likely that Cumberbatch was actually lined up to play a recognisable character from the Star Trek canon? Some suggested Harrison might actually be Charlie Evans, the sinister teenage boy with psychic powers who terrorised the Enterprise in the second ever Original Series episode, Charlie X. Others suggested Cumberbatch might be taking on the role of Khan Noonien Singh, a character first introduced in series one's Space Seed. »

Where (And How Boldly) Should the ‘Star Trek’ Series Go From Here?

24 July 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pop-culture recycling doesn’t get much knottier than this. In 2009, J.J. Abrams directed “Star Trek,” a reboot of a popular movie franchise spun off from a legendary TV series. The film succeeded beyond all expectations — it was rousing and sharp, nostalgic yet forward-thinking, an adventure for Trekkies and newbies and everyone in between. It was also a powerful reminder that the reason this particular movie franchise got off the ground in the first place had more than a little to do with the galaxy-altering success of “Star Wars.”

In 1979, the maw of Hollywood was hungry for space operas, and here was a mythical TV series, with its army of fans, that had had a major influence on George Lucas’s Movie That Changed The World. The first three “Star Wars” films are often thought of (with justification) as a joystick update of a “Buck Rogers” serial. But really, it was »

'Beyond': 'Most Satisfying' Among Rebooted 'Star Trek' Movies, But Gay Sulu a Dramatic Miscalculation

23 July 2016 9:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Star Trek Beyond' with Chris Pine as Captain Kirk: Will movie franchise reboot achieve 'escape velocity'? 'Star Trek Beyond' Review: Movie franchise needs to boldly go where J.J. Abrams has never gone before We're never told what “beyond” refers to in Star Trek Beyond, the 13th film in the venerated sci-fi series. But here's a theory: if the franchise is to regain its footing after the tepid returns of Star Trek Into Darkness, it will have to move beyond J.J. Abrams, the writer/director who used his brand of copycat magic to relaunch the series in 2009. In our reboot era, he's got the canny ability to provide older audiences with enough familiarity to keep them under the tent while giving new audiences enough youthful verve so they don't feel the franchise isn't for them. If you think that's not worth something, see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

Blu-ray Review – Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: Director’s Cut (1982)

22 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, 1982.

Directed by Nicholas Meyer.

Starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, Paul Winfield, Bibi Besch and Ricardo Montalban.

Synopsis:

Years after their five year mission, the crew of the USS Enterprise under now Admiral James T. Kirk are pitched against an old adversary, Khan Noonien Singh, seeking vengeance via a devastating potential new weapon…

Without a shadow of a doubt, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is my favourite science-fiction movie. Always has been, always will be, and while critically it’s certainly not the genres best, it would be hard for anyone to deny its place high on the list. Nicholas Meyer’s sequel to the first Star Trek movie remains, even a quarter of a century and eleven movies later, the finest picture in the illustrious franchise’s history, and this brand »

Music That Takes Us Beyond: A Guide to the Star Trek Movie Soundtracks

22 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To mark composer Michael Giacchino’s triumphant return with Star Trek Beyond, Sean Wilson explores the extraordinarily rich legacy of music from the Star Trek movies…

From being initially written off on the basis of the underwhelming trailers to its emergence as a funny, fast-paced and fan-pleasing summer blockbuster, Star Trek Beyond has according to most critics done a bang up job of both honouring and continuing the classic franchise on the eve of its 50th anniversary.

Key to its impact is yet another rousingly adventurous and rich score from Michael Giacchino, whose return to the Trek realm for the third time was launched with a spectacular live concert performance at the movie’s premiere in Los Angeles. But then music has always been one of the most important and powerful weapons in the Star Trek arsenal, several of Hollywood’s most legendary composers having beamed us into the unknown. »

Review: ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Is A Satisfying Blend of Classic Trek and Blockbuster Action

21 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

After recycling a little too much of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan for the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, the rebooted franchise based on Gene Roddenberry’s classic sci-fi series needed a new direction to bring some freshness back to the final frontier. Thankfully, with Star Trek Beyond, director Justin Lin has managed to […]

‘Star Trek’ Wants to Regulate Fan Culture, But It’s Not Going to Be Easy

18 July 2016 3:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As of September 8, “Star Trek” will have officially been a part of American pop culture for 50 years, and it has one of the most robust and passionate fandoms in pop culture history. Fandom is basically a synonym for love — and “Star Trek” is currently in the process of telling some fans how to express their love.

It has been, to be frank, a bit of a mess.

How One Fan Film Set Things Off

In May 2016, one of the nerdiest things ever written was filed with the United States District Court. In a ruling by Judge R. Gary Klausner, His Honor declared that a lawsuit filed by Paramount Pictures and CBS Studios should proceed, because:

“Although the Court declines to address whether Plaintiffs’ Claims will prosper at this time, the Court does find Plaintiffs’ claims will live long enough to survive Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss.”

Star Trek Into Darkness: exploring the plot three years on

14 July 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 15, 2016

How does Star Trek Into Darkness's plot hold up three years on? Ryan takes a closer look...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus.

It's often the case that post-screening conversations are as much fun as the cinema visit itself. Whether a film's good or bad, sitting and dissecting a movie over a drink or during the car journey home is as much a part of the theatre-going experience as buying popcorn or the joyful sense of anticipation as the lights go down.

Sometimes, it's the most bewildering movies that provoke the most enjoyable discussions. I can still remember the exchanges I had with a friend after watching 2012's Prometheus: why did Rafe Spall tickle that evil-looking space snake? Why did Old Man Weyland hide aboard a ship that was his in the first place? Why didn't Charlize Theron run »

Top Movies That Totally Flopped at the Box Office

6 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ah, youth. The days when you reveled in your dorm room and feasted on delicacies like hair dryer-warmed pizza or ramen gently braised over a light bulb. Your bank account might've been empty, but you still managed to feed your soul with the deepest of lessons: Money isn't everything.

And you weren't alone when enlightenment struck. Since Hollywood's golden age, plenty of movies that had hard-knock openings later blossomed into beloved cinematic staples or legit cult classics. Here are just a few, in all their flop-to-favorite glory.

'It's a Wonderful Life' (1946)

Unthinkable as it seems, "It's a Wonderful Life" was not having a very wonderful life at all in 1946. Though award season was kind to the movie, audiences just weren't feeling its darker themes, and Rko Pictures wasn't feeling the money -- "Life" lost about $525,000 at the box office.

Review: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Director’s Cut

6 June 2016 11:06 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Home Video fans have a lot to look forward to as Paramount Home Entertainment releases a variety of Star Trek material this year. First up and arriving Tuesday, just days after its 34th anniversary is Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Director’s Cut. This is the first time director Nicholas Meyer’s version of the now-classic film is available on Blu-ray.

There’s little left to say about just how good the film is and looking back, we can easily see the affection both cast and crew put into the production. There was a gamble in bringing in Harve Bennett to produce and Meyer to direct only because neither had been a part of Trek previously and Paramount needed the film to be a major success to salvage the franchise.

Thankfully, Bennett understand the genre and Meyer was a gifted novelist and filmmaker so got down to the core elements. »
