'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, »

Comic-con 2016 Exclusive Videos, Casting News, Scoop and More
Visiting Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by Zte, executive producers Michael Peterson and Jonathan Collier first addressed your concerns about Zach looking “very villainous” at the close of the finale, seemingly outed as the serial killer dubbed The Puppeteer. That final scene, though, is but the start of a new “journey” for the long-mia character, the EPs say.

There’s a new woman in Ichabod Crane’s life, and she’s played by someone who knows her way around supernatural drama.
The new character, on which TVLine exclusively reported earlier this month, is officially a guest-starring gig, but fills the void left by the departure of series regular Nicole Beharie. »
Here's the bad news, Bones fans: There are only 12 episodes left of the series you've loved for eleven years now. But the good news: Those 12 episodes are going to be Packed with action as the series wraps up the shorelines of Brennan (Emily Deschanel), Booth (David Boreanaz), Angela (Michaela Conlin), Hodgins (T.J. Thyne), Cam (Tamara Taylor) and the rest of the Jeffersonian gang. The core cast, along with executive producers Jonathan Collier and Michael Peterson, took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con for their final Comic-Con panel ever. Sniff! The gang couldn't spill much intel on the 12th and final season, considering they only just started pre-production. But they did share a few ominous details »
Star Trek 4 will see Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk coming face-to-face with his father George Kirk, with Chris Pine reprising his role from the 2009 reboot, and Abrams has told EW that the plot for the fourth movie is his “favourite Star Trek story that we’ve had.”
“One of the reasons that I’m hoping [Star Trek Beyond] does well is so that we can, without question, get that movie made. It really is an amazing story. It’s really the reason we made the deal with Chris Hemsworth as soon as we could because we really wanted that story to be told, so fingers crossed.”

The next season of “Bones” will be its last on Fox. When it does, fans should be ready to say goodbye to a few recurring characters.
“No one at this table, we will say that, but there are two other people from past seasons who will die in this season,” executive producer Michael Peterson said Friday during a panel at Comic-Con. Peterson was joined onstage by stars Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor and John Francis Daley.
Peterson and fellow executive producer Jonathan Collier teased some upcoming plot details for the new season. Regarding the number 447, which has recurred throughout the series, Peterson said, “Episode 11 of next season you will find out what 447 means,” Peterson said.
Peterson also said that former squint Zack, who returned in the season 11 finale, will have a multi-episode story arc in the coming season. “We will try to bring him back for three to four more episodes,” Peterson »

Fox’s Bones made its San Diego Comic-Con swan song today, and according to showrunner/Ep Michael Peterson, two recurring characters from previous seasons will die in the series’ 12th and final go-round. “No one at this table,” said Peterson, “make your guess.” And this morning’s table included Emily Deschanel (Brennan), David Boreanaz (Booth), Michaela Conlin (Angela Montenegro), T.J.

Fox is offering an olive branch to its loyal Bones fans, scheduling an encore broadcast of Thursday’s Season 11 finale, which was postponed in whole or in part in many markets, due to Donald Trump’s record-setting, 75-minute Rnc nomination acceptance speech.
“Due to an over-run in coverage of the Republican National Convention, a portion of last night’s season finale of Bones was pre-empted on the West Coast,” reads a statement from the network. “We will re-air the finale next Friday, July 29, at 8/7c. The »
The Big 3’s coverage of Donald Trump‘s nomination acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention totaled 12.3 million total viewers and a cumulative 2.6 demo rating (per finals), up 23 percent from Night 3.
Versus Mitt Romney’s closing night speech in 2012, the Rnc’s broadcast numbers were up sharply, though CBS aired Big Brother that evening instead.
Night 4 totals, with cable viewership folded in, will be updated later this evening.

The multiplex has been all about a certain science-fiction feature film franchise of late. I’m speaking of all the hoopla last December with the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (and it’s started up again for the stand alone flick Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). And the year before that, 2014, the big buzz was about the new planet-hoppin’ series from Marvel Studios, Guardians Of The Galaxy (a sequel touches down next May). Somehow, the grand-daddy (or maybe the older uncle) has been neglected. Star Trek has been drifting in the cinema cosmos for over three years. In 2009 Paramount Studios recruited J.J. Abrams to reboot the films with younger versions of the characters from the original TV show (and first seven features). Four years later they were back, with Abrams directing once more, for Star Trek: Into Darkness. Soon after its release, he was whisked into that galaxy far, »

Bones fans on the West Coast and in other Mountain and Pacific markets were in for a surprise of the unscripted sort on Thursday night when Fox joined the Season 11 finale in progress — 40 minutes in — after wrapping coverage of Donald Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention.
The discovery that they had been denied two-thirds of the season ender immediately fueled Twitter outrage, as scores wondered how Fox could not better schedule around the Rnc and what surely would be an unpredictable (and, »
Warning: The following contains spoilers for Thursday’s season finale of Bones
A beloved figure from Bones history made an unexpected reappearance during Thursday’s Season 11 finale. But has the returnee crossed over to the dark side during their absence?
At the close of the episode, former squint Zack had kidnapped Dr. Brennan, suggesting that he might be — or at least have a connection to — The Puppeteer serial killer who has been tormenting the Jeffersonian team. (Co-showrunner Jonathan Collier offers some insight »
Bones fans, are you losing your minds over the insane twist that came at the end of the show's season 11 finale? Yeah, us too, so we hopped on the phone with showrunner John Collier to discuss everything that went down and why producers decided to bring back a fan favorite character in such a unique way.

(Yeah, Major spoilers below, so bookmark this page and read later if you haven't seen the finale yet.) E!

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Thursday’s season finale of Bones.
The past came back to haunt Bones during Thursday’s Season 11 finale as the team chased down The Puppeteer serial killer and found a familiar face behind the mayhem!
Tormented by nightmares, Brennan sought out the help of a psychologist (played by The Good Wife‘s Tim Guinee), whom Booth came to suspect was their murderer. But when Brennan was taken from the lab while the shrink sat in FBI custody, »
Bones has outdone itself in the fear factor category with its 11th season finale, "The Nightmare Within The Nightmare," putting Brennan's Pelant nightmares to shame. The dizzying stutter-shutter cinematography combined with a slasher-y "Flight of the Bumblebee" soundtrack sets a highly anxious and eerie tone that commands goosebumps to nearly jump off your skin. Add several generous layers of regret, fear, and insomnia-induced madness and you have a recipe for a truly outstanding final bow before the lengthy hiatus. No surprise, since the episodes directed by actor David Boreanaz are always the most excruciatingly intense in the absolute best of ways.
It hasn’t been a particularly great summer movie season, I think we can all agree with that sentiment. Outside of a small handful of releases, it has been one disappointment after the next. This week, however, things pick up with the emergence of Star Trek Beyond, a sequel that not only manages to improve on what came before it, but really fits in with the entire franchise so far to date. It was very impressive what this film does, without ever really calling attention to itself. I suspect it’s going to be a pretty big hit, and rightly so, as it’s a high quality effort. The sequel picks up a while after the events of Star Trek into Darkness (itself taking place a bit after Star Trek). The crew of the Enterprise, led by Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), is in the middle of a five »
