The third instalment in the rebooted Star Trek franchise – reportedly titled Star Trek Beyond – hasn’t all been smooth sailing since it was first announced. Director and writer changes put the whole project in jeopardy. But now we’re happy to see that filming has officially got underway just outside of Vancouver, Canada.
The cast have been arriving on set over the past few days and actors Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto – who will return as Uhura and Spock – posted a couple of pictures on their Instagram accounts confirming the news.
Zachary Quinto dedicated his reprisal as Spock to legendary actor Leonard Nimoy – who sadly passed away at the start of the year – and urged fans to help support the proposed Spock documentary being developed by Leonard’s son Adam:
“In honour of my first day back and the memory of my dear friend Leonard go to http://bit.ly »

We start this week of The Bachelorette exactly where we left off. This whole situation is tiring. Obviously, Ian wanted Kaitlyn to get on her knees and beg, but he forgot where he was. This is not the show where you make women beg for your affection and trip over themselves. That show is called Big Love, and it’s been off the air for four years.Ian doesn’t understand human nature or people or feelings. He keeps asking Kaitlyn if she really wants someone with a sense of humor. Yeah, dude. Most people want a partner with a sense of humor. Most relationships don’t consist of two people staring at each other reading their résumés and mutually masturbating. Most relationships don’t consist of two people wearing black turtlenecks and listening to jazz talking about their intellectual side and how shallow the plebes are … and mutually masturbating. »

The Iifa weekend kicked off with Iifa Rocks aka Iifa Music and Fashion Extravaganza. This event is usually held before the main awards event and is also the night where technical achievements in cinema are honoured. Given that fashion is on the agenda for this event its always interesting to see what’s on the green carpet.
Parineeti Chopra played it quite safe with a Gaurav Gupta gown for the evening. Given that she was also a host of the event it was probably wise to go for something striking yet simple. She complimented the look with a very simple yet elegant hair do and Suhanie Pitti cuffs. She looked great!
Kriti Sanon was spotted in Bibhu Mohaptra gown. I do find the color of the gown quite lucklustre but Kriti pulled it off well. Loved the sleek hair do which she opted for.

Bill Paxton’s acting resume includes a host of fearless characters, including his multi-Golden Globe-nominated turn as a polygamous Mormon patriarch in HBO’s “Big Love,” astronaut Fred Haise in “Apollo 13” and Texas hero Sam Houston in the upcoming History Channel miniseries “Texas Rising.” His first time in Variety also involved some daring — a fearless trek to Morocco in 1974 when he was the teenaged star of a very indie film, “Taking Tiger Mountain.”
“Taking Tiger Mountain” doesn’t sound like a movie as much as it does a rite of passage.
I was 19, and the writer-director Kent Smith was 31. We had the idea to make a kind of Albert Camus-inspired film in Tangiers. So we leased a bunch of Arriflex Techniscope equipment. First, it was all lost at de Gaulle Airport. Then we drove to the bottom of Spain, and all the roads were clogged with tourists. We took the ferry across. »

It's the Disney division's first new movie since "Monster's University" which hit theaters almost two years ago.

Mick Hucknall has admitted the next Simply Red album ''may be the last''. The band will release their 11th studio album 'Big Love' next month to celebrate three decades since their first record, but the band's frontman has admitted it could be the final music anyone hears from the band because he wants to enjoy being ''happy'' with his family. He confessed: ''I do have the feeling I've reached a sort of end point. I'm very happy in my life, my focus is my family and actually enjoying what I have. I never thought I'd get to this place. I never thought I'd actually ever get to be happy.'' The 54-year-old musician believes the latest LP with the group is a ''very personal collection of songs,'' which has been inspired by his marriage to long-term girlfriend Gabriella Wesberry in 2010, their daughter Romy, and his late father, »
Simply Red will release their first album in eight years in June. The band has announced a new album 'Big Love' to coincide with their world tour to celebrate their 30th anniversary, which they announced last autumn. Frontman Mick Hucknall has revealed the album - which will be the first to feature only original songs since 1995's 'Life' - came about after he started to wonder how the band were going to sound on tour. After getting a concept for Simply Red's live sound in his head he then got inspired to start writing and then he couldn't stop penning tracks. The 'Holding Back the Years' singer said: ''Once I began wondering how Simply Red were going to sound, I started writing songs.'' While he hasn't worked with Steve Lewinson, Kenju Suuki, Kevin Robinson, Dave Clayton and Ronnie Roth for eight years, the break has meant that »

Episcopalian Christian minister Daniel Webster has a special relationship with Jesus Christ, in that he can literally see and talk to him. Daniel’s life is difficult and not even visitations from the son of God are enough to assuage his pain, which has him addicted to narcotic painkillers. The series begins a year after one of his twin sons has departed from suffering from leukemia. This event may’ve been the cause of Daniel’s drug intake and also why his wife is a functioning alcoholic. They have »

When you are anxiously awaiting a movie as big as Avengers: Age of Ultron, you want to hear that it's great! Not just pretty good. But that seems to be the overall consensus coming out of the first press screening held last night at Disney Studios in Burbank, California. The movie sounds like it is a lot more serious and dark than the original, though there are quite a few good jokes and plenty of awesome Marvel cameos (none of which were revealed to avoid possible spoilers).
Disney knows it has a hit on its hands, so they allowed the critics to tweet their responses to the movie afterwards. Most of the reactions are very positive. The movie is without a doubt 'good' by their standards, which means the general populace will probably love it. It was overheard many times that the movie lacks the euphoric nature of the first, »
After years of anticipation, Avengers: Age Of Ultron finally went live in the form of critics screenings this evening. It.ll still be weeks before members of the general public are able to consume it, but to everyone.s delight, the movie is apparently awesome, at least if you can rely on the word of the first batch of paid movie experts! The praise has been almost constant since the first screening was let out. Everyone is embargoed from writing reviews for quite a bit yet, but social media is fair game, and they all can't stop talking, apparently because Captain America, Iron Man and the rest of the company of superheroes do not disappoint. Here's what Cinemablend's own Eric Eisenberg had to say after seeing Avengers 2... Big love for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Tons of fun, awesome action, and fantastic performances from all.

Suicide Squad writer-director David Ayer tweeted a pic tonight of him and the gang hanging out like a bunch of fun friends. Well, except for Jared Leto, who plays the Joker and hopefully has Fomo and fully green hair by now. Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, and others gathered for a script run-through before the beginning of production. The photo also revealed new cast additions Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project) and Adam Beach (Big Love). Fun! Probably a good idea to follow Ayer on Twitter for similar types of teasers before the movie comes out next summer — maybe he'll be the new Bryan Singer of social.. »

More fresh-ish faces are jumping onboard with Chloe Sevigny for American Horror Story: Hotel. She is the latest star to become attache after the big shake up with casting was announced a week or so ago. Chloe who is known as the bad wife on Big Love did play a nymphomaniac on their American Horror Story: Asylum season. Like most of her co-stars, not much has been addressed about how or where they will fit in on the show yet. We expect we will find out more in the late summer of this year.
I am glad that Chloe is returning back to TV. It will be different seeing her in this role as I am used to her Big Love style character. However, it is good to see her expand her wings and remind the world that she can play someone other than that trademark character. After all, we »
