Patrick Stewart Would Return In A Flash For Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek

The general reaction to the news that it’s looking like Paramount might go ahead with Quentin Tarantino’s R-rated Star Trek feature film can be summed up in three letters. W, T and F. How on earth can the famously idiosyncratic director, know for his absurdly violent genre cinema, slot neatly into the pristine and sober world of Star Trek?

Then again, they say opposites attract and perhaps Tarantino could be just the guy to inject a shot of adrenaline into the venerable sci-fi property’s bloodstream. Understandably, this news has created a considerable buzz around the project and in a recent interview, THR asked Patrick Stewart whether he’d consider returning to the franchise to reprise his role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, to which he said:

“One of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much and to be in a Tarantino film

Will Patrick Stewart Return as Picard in Tarantino's Star Trek Movie?

Will Patrick Stewart Return as Picard in Tarantino's Star Trek Movie?
This Tarantino Abrams Star Trek movie gets more interesting by the minute. Not only is Quentin Tarantino teaming with J.J. Abrams for this Star Trek movie, but it's going to be R-rated and, if all goes well, the Pulp Fiction director is going to helm the movie as well, working with a story he pitched to Paramount and Abrams. Now, to make matters even more crazy and possibly awesome, Patrick Stewart says he'd be willing to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard for this Star Trek movie, if there's a place for him. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.

"People are always saying to me, 'Will you be Jean-Luc Picard again?' And I cannot think that would be possible, but there are ways in which something like that might come about. But one of my dreams is to work with Tarantino. I admire his work so much,

Tom Hardy Just Gets Better With Age

Tom Hardy Just Gets Better With Age
Roles in Inception and The Dark Knight Rises may have sent his career into overdrive, but fans have been devoted to British actor Tom Hardy for much longer than that. Many have been watching him since that first menacing turn in Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002 (he's the only actor to have played both a Batman and a Star Trek villain). The hot dad then spent years balancing indie films and period dramas before he conquered Hollywood. A few early adopters may have been in love with him for over a decade, but we've been trying to pinpoint the exact moment the world really sat up and paid attention . . . and we've settled on 2009. Why? If you've not seen him in Wuthering Heights with his wife, Charlotte Riley, do yourself a favor and hunt it down. And take a look at our photo chronology for more proof that was the year when everything changed for him!

Do We Need A Venom Film Without Spider-Man?

Lrm reported the other day that Tom Hardy is tapped to star in the Ruben Fleischer directed Venom. Starring as Eddie Brock, we'll see how Eddie came across the Venom symbiote and wrecked havoc across New York City. The film will Not have the character of Peter Parker, or Spider-Man, involved however. The film is set to be an R-rated film.

There are some good and bad points to this. First off, Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock is a great choice. Even in horrible films like Star Trek: Nemesis, Tom Hardy has a way of making his presence felt on screen. Taking on such unique roles as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, or Max in Mad Max: Fury Road, he's shown a range of character that is unique for genre films. Seeing him play Eddie Brock in a serious Venom film is definitely an exciting prospect.

Top 20: Films to see in 2017

We are a few months into 2017 and already we had a number of standout movies like Get Out, Logan, and The Lego Batman Movie. Hopefully that is just the start of what is to come. Considering that, myself and Kevin – the hosts of podcast Cinema Geeks – combine forces to put a list together of 20 movies to watch in 2017.

Let us know what you think of the list in the comments below. Did they leave any off? Are the rankings off base? Let your voice be heard!

20) The Lost City of Z

What Can Go Right: A film with this type of setup sure would have to be bungled in order for it not to work. It describes the life of British explorer Percy Fawcett who made several attempts to find an ancient lost city in the Amazon and disappeared in 1925 along with his son. It should be in good hands

X-Men: what's the best order to watch the movies in?

Juliette Harrisson Mar 27, 2017

There are various ways to tackle the X-Men movies. Here are our suggestions...

It happens so often in Sff fandoms. You have a series, it starts out releasing an original story, then some sequels, then... it all goes a bit wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey, whether through the release of prequels, through introducing a time-travel element to the story that confuses the order of the narrative, or other various narrative shenanigans.

The viewing order of the X-Men film series is especially complicated. The series includes prequels, at least two different timelines, and more internal inconsistencies than you can shake an adamantium-or-bone claw at. So, with the Hugh Jackman/Patrick Stewart era coming to a close with Logan, we thought we’d suggest a few different options for approaches to an X-Men movie marathon. None of these suggested viewing orders are intended to be definitive and, thanks to the determined lack of internal consistency in the series,

Den Of Geek Nov 24, 2016

Weekend Rock Question: What Is the Best Star Trek Movie?

Weekend Rock Question: What Is the Best Star Trek Movie?
Earlier this year, Star Trek Beyond hit theaters and grossed $338 million. That's enough to guarantee a 14th film in the franchise that began all the way back in 1979 with the release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Of course, the whole phenomenon really started 50 years ago with the original Star Trek television series. It became a huge cult hit in syndication in the 1970s, but during its original run never got very high ratings and was cancelled after just three seasons.

Now we have a question for you: What is the best Star Trek movie?

How Red Dwarf: The Movie failed to become a reality

Luke Owen looks back at Red Dwarf: The Movie, and how it never got made…

In 1998, BBC decided to pull the plug on Red Dwarf after its eighth series. The final series, aired in 1999, climaxed with an episode titled “Only The Good”, which ended with the words ‘The End’, before being replaced with ‘The Smeg It Is’. And that would be correct, as this was not to be the end of the road for Lister, Rimmer, Cat, Kochanski and Kryten, as co-creator Doug Naylor had big plans for the future of Red Dwarf – he was going to make a movie.

Initially Naylor had planned to do a ninth series of the show, but the BBC rejected his proposal. While it’s not known exactly why the series was turned down, the official Red Dwarf website noted that they now had more than 52 episodes of the show in the can,

‘Star Trek’ Cast Members Celebrate Show’s 50th Anniversary

‘Star Trek’ Cast Members Celebrate Show’s 50th Anniversary
Cast members from all five “Star Trek” shows celebrated the franchise’s milestone anniversary on social media Thursday.

Fifty years ago today, the very first episode of the original “Star Trek” series — “The Man Trap” — debuted on TV. The 1996 Variety review predicted the show’s demise, “The opener won’t open up many new frequencies after this sampler.”

How wrong the reviewer was.

Five decades after the debut, the franchise is still going strong, with a sixth show coming in 2017 and a 14th movie planned (following this summer’s “Star Trek Beyond”).

William Shatner (Captain Kirk), Brent Spiner (Commander Data), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Worf), and Scott Bakula (Captain Archer) recorded a congratulatory tribute to the show:

Rodd Roddenberry, son of “Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry and frequent “Trek” actress Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, tweeted that his father would be “incredibly touched,” followed by the hashtag celebrating the anniversary, #StarTrek

‘Star Trek’: 50 Years of Films and TV, Ranked From Worst to Best

‘Star Trek’: 50 Years of Films and TV, Ranked From Worst to Best
Beyond the 19 films and TV shows that make up official on-screen “Star Trek” canon, there are quite a few more efforts that could, philosophically, be a part of this list.

There’s the rich legacy of officially licensed novels and comic books that brought the characters to life in print form. There’s the technology invented by production designers that eventually became real-life wizardry. There’s the 1999 film “Galaxy Quest” — technically a parody, but spiritually one of the best “Star Trek” movies ever made.

How Fuller's "Star Trek: Discovery" Will Approach Future Technology That’s Very Close to Our Present

  • Hitfix
How Fuller's
"Star Trek's" big 50th anniversary got an early celebration this weekend at the Star Trek: Mission New York convention in Manhattan. It gave fans the opportunity to see their favorite actors from the franchise but also gave us a few new clues as to what we'll see from Bryan Fuller's "Star Trek: Discovery."

Fuller's CBS All Access series, set to debut in January 2017, is still quite mysterious. We know who's working behind-the-scenes, found out the official name not too long ago and got our first teaser (with fun Easter Eggs). Fuller has said the cast would continue in the progressive tradition of the show (it will feature a female lead called "Number One" who will not be the captain) and we got an alien tease but we're still wondering who will actually be in the new series. Sadly the convention this weekend did not divulge that information.

While Fuller wasn't at the show, writer/producers Nicholas Meyer and Kristen Beyer were and fed fans a few morsels of information. As you might be aware, Star Trek: Enterprise took place during the years 2121-2155 while the original series took place 2265–2269. Since "Discovery" is meant to take place chronologically between those two, where does that leave their "future" technology?

“It was about finding a space in the chronology to maneuver and create stuff,” Meyer says of the decision to pick that particular ten year gap. “Bryan didn’t want to use the same characters from other series, and a 10-year pre-Kirk thing seemed perfect.” That setting also allows them to employ and expand upon established Trek technology that once seemed fanciful, but is now commonplace. The notion of a portable communicator, for example, seems less futuristic in an age when everyone’s carrying an iPhone. “We want to remain faithful to [the technology] we know, but there’s stuff we can do now that goes so far beyond what they did,” Beyer remarked. “Star Trek was part of creating or inspiring some of the [devices] we enjoy now, and we want to do that as well.”

As a life-long Trek fan I admit I was a bit disappointed to learn the new show would take place when it does and not go further into the future, if for no other reason than I love to see new, fictional technology. Besides the Star Trek: Nemesis film, Star Trek: Voyager went the farthest into the future of any "Trek" series (not counting any time travel business).

It seems strange to me they'd stress about where to shoehorn themselves in rather than just moving forward. I feel like they're limiting themselves in terms of the technology they can believably use (as in, believable for a future we've yet to see while not do something ridiculous like show a crew member using an iPad), or will be forced to change things from what's been established in previous Trek creations. As they said, the franchise, like most sci-fi stories, has been inspirational to real-world tech we use every day now. I'd love to see what interesting advancements they'd invent and, tech aside, I also just really want to see what the Federation and its enemies and allies are up to "now." Boldly go, as they say, where no one has gone before.

Anyway, although he wasn't there, Fuller did leave the convention a video message for fans about the general concept of the new show:

"['Discovery' is] an opportunity to reinvent, re-explore and re-introduce alien races you may be familiar with, but also introduce brand new aliens, planets and ships you haven’t seen before,” Fuller continued. And we’ll be seeing these new aliens and planets from a different perspective; where past Trek shows have all revolved around a starship captain, 'Discovery' will feature a supporting crew member as the point of view character. “We’ll be looking at life aboard a starship from a whole different dynamic."

During the panel it was also revealed that Beyer, a "Star Trek" novelist, would be overseeing a Star Trek: Discovery novel and comic book series set to support the show in real time. Simon & Schuster will publish the book by David Mack while IDW will publish the comic from Mike Johnson and artist Tony Shasteen.

The Last Sci-Fi Blog: Why to Feel Optimistic About the Future of 'Star Trek'

It’s not always easy to be a Star Trek fan. To fully appreciate the first two seasons of the original series, you need to endure the third season. In order to get to the good stuff in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, you have to power through the early episodes. The films have also offered their fair share of pain, with Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek: Nemesis shaking the faith of even the most hardened Trekkies. But right now, in the year 2016, in the 50th anniversary of the entire franchise, I feel really good about being a Star Trek fan. The best part of this feeling is that it feels like the best is yet to come. On one hand, I’m still riding high on Star Trek Beyond, a movie that managed to blend the core tenets of Star Trek.

Does Star Trek: Nemesis deserve its reputation?

Alex Carter Aug 3, 2016

A Generation’s Final Journey nearly killed the franchise. But did it deserve to bomb?

The first Nemesis disc I owned inexplicably didn’t work properly in my first DVD player, and eventually stopped working entirely. When rewatching the film for this article, I found that the Blu-ray I have is bent for no reason at all and won’t work in any player. I tried downloading it off Sky, but it stopped downloading halfway through and refused to download any more until I deleted the whole thing and tried again after rebooting the box. I tried Netflix but weirdly Star Trek: Nemesis is part of a different rights package to the other Next Gen movies. Is this such an awesome film that digital media are still unable to cope with its majesty? Or is it so bad that it reaches out into the real world and breaks everything it touches?

I Wish I Could've Reviewed 'Beyond' ...

The last time I saw a Star Trek movie for the first time on opening weekend, it was 1998 for "Star Trek: Insurrection."Ian Cullen, someone I have known since our days chatting in the Star Trek area of AOL, had made the trip from England to Orlando, and I was taking both him and his mom to see the film in a suburb of Tampa.Sure, there's only been three movies since then, so it's probably not that major of a feat. But I've attended previews of "Star Trek: Nemesis," the 2009 "Star Trek" and its sequel, "Star Trek: Into Darkness." I was even invited to a preview of "Star Trek: Beyond," but unfortunately I'm currently, should I say, geographically disadvantaged.For the past year, I've been living in the amazing island nation of Grenada.
