Friends and family were recently able to say their last goodbyes to Anton Yelchin. E! News can confirm that the actor's funeral service occurred Friday at an undisclosed location. The service comes less than a week after the Star Trek star was killed in a car accident at his home in Los Angeles. Yelchin was only 27 years old when he suddenly passed away after his Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled backwards and pinned him against a brick mailbox and a security fence, a police spokesperson told E! News. The Star Trek actor was supposed to be meeting friends for a rehearsal when he never showed up. Concerned, some went to his house to check on him when they found his body. The L.A. »
With "Star Trek Beyond" hitting cinemas next month and the CBS series now in the works, the producers behind the "Star Trek" franchise are now getting around to solving one pesky problem that needed to be sorted out sooner or later - continuity.
Specifically it was established in J.J. Abrams' 2009 "Star Trek" that the film and its subsequent sequels are part of an alternate universe that splits off from the rest of the "Star Trek" timeline - so everything that happens within them doesn't upset the continuity of the original 1960s TV series and the various spin-offs like "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine".
Until now there's been no official designation for this splinter timeline, though the Abrams-verse is a name often bandied about. Well that has changed with an official name now being established for it - The Kelvin Timeline.

For those who came in late, a bunch of fans crowdsourced the funds to make a Star Trek fan film, Axanar. The funding campaign was outrageously successful, earning over 1.1 million dollars. That large an amount of money set off Paramount’s sensor array, and they quickly filed suit against said fans for unauthorized use of trademarked items. The folks behind Axanar counter-sued, claiming Paramount didn’t have hold of all the items they claimed. It was going to get testy (and potentially untenable for Paramount if any of the points made in the counter-suit were deemed valid) until J.J. Abrams stepped in and convinced Paramount to calm down.
In response to said events, this week Paramount released a series of guidelines that fan films must follow in order to stay on the right side of the law, or at least on the right side of Paramount’s battery of white-lipped attorneys. »

The self-professed Star Trek fan falls short in her single for the third entry in the revamped film franchise, with a generic-sounding ballad co-written by Sia

Star Trek is coming back to CBS in 2017, and there has been a lot said about the revival, and the man in charge decided to clear up a lot of the rumors about the series before it heads into production this September.
Bryan Fuller is that man in charge, and Trek Movie shared his comments. A lot of what has been reported in various reports has been incorrect, and he wants to change that.
He said the following:
“I’ve read that this is an anthology show, which is not accurate. [There are] lots of crews in the story. One of the things that’s exciting for me is that we are telling a Star Trek story in a modern way. We’re telling a 13-chapter story in this first season. It’s nice to be able to dig deep into things that »
Orlando's Lgbtq+ nightclub Pulse was the target of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history this month. While it's left many at a loss as to how to come to terms with such a tragedy, others have been looking toward something positive. A new petition is asking Bob Iger of Disney and Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm to honor a fan who was lost in the attack by naming Star Wars' first canon Lgbt film character after him. "We are all heartbroken by the tragic and horrific events in Orlando, and offer our thoughts, prayers and support to everyone in our community affected by this senseless act," said Iger earlier this month. The Walt Disney Company followed up words with action by donating $1 million to the OneOrlando Fund. "We are heartbroken by this tragedy and hope our commitment will help those in the community affected by this senseless act, »

The spot opens with Kirk (Chris Pine) contemplating his position on the Starfleet. “My dad joined Starfleet because he believed in it. I joined on a dare,” he said.
After coming face to face with a formidable foe and the starship in flames, Kirk makes his most riveting declaration.”We were overwhelmed by something. Something we’d never seen before. I know this isn’t the last of my crew. But this is my last report as the captain of the Starship Enterprise.”
The trailer doesn’t feature any new footage, but rather recycles clips from the first two trailers and even brings in some shots from 2009’s “Star Trek.” Rihanna’s “Sledgehammer,” however, sets the tone for some of the action expected in “Beyond.”
“I’m bracing for the pain, and I am letting go, »

Over the weekend, Paramount released the soundtrack details for their highly-anticipated sequel Star Trek Beyond, which will included a new song entitled "Sledgehammer" from Rihanna. While we don't know when the full song will be released, "Sledgehammer" is featured in the third and finale trailer for Star Trek Beyond, which hits theaters July 22. It isn't known if the artist plans on releasing a music video for this single, or if it will include any of the Star Trek Beyond cast members.
Earlier this month, Zoe Saldana teased that the U.S.S. Enterprise crew is just exhausted when the movie begins, and they need a break. This new trailer, which debuted on YouTube, features footage of the attack on this iconic ship. Kirk (Chris Pine) claims this will be his last mission as Captain of the Starship Enterprise, as we see the ship go down in flames. Kirk gets away in an escape pod, »
With a premiere tentatively pegged for early 2017, it’s really too soon for CBS to divulge any specifics regarding its planned Star Trek TV series.
But when quizzed on the status of the reboot at the Saturn Awards, series showrunner Bryan Fuller did drop some tantalizing hints about what we can expect. Drawing upon his experience across Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Voyager, Fuller told Collider that this new show will run for 13 episodes in total, and the writing team already have “the arc of the first season” mapped out.
Furthermore, it’ll retain the series’ trailblazing approach to diversity and deep space exploration, with Fuller noting that CBS wants “to carry on what Star Trek does best, which is being progressive. So it’s fascinating, to look at all of these roles through a colorblind prism and a gender-blind prism.”

The third trailer for Star Trek Beyond is incredibly special for a couple reasons. Not only does it feature Rihanna's new song, "Sledgehammer" (penned by Sia) for the first time, but it comes on the heels of Anton Yelchin's tragic death last week. The song is incredibly meaningful for the Star Trek family after their loss, with lyrics that read,"You just don't let up, don't let up/You're taken over the beat of my body/But you lift me up, lift me up/If you take my pulse right now/It would feel just like a sledgehammer." Several of the film's stars thanks Rihanna for the song during their difficult time. Zoe Saldana reposted a clip of the trailer, »
Star Trek Beyond's trailers have been a mixed bag for fans of the franchise and the latest, which features a brand new song from Rihanna, is sure to be no different. It's a much more dramatic trailer this time around, that's for sure. We get some heartstrings pulled with a quick glimpse of Chris Hemsworth's cameo in the 2009 film as James T. Kirk's father, and the new Rihanna song is not upbeat and dance-able like most of her hits but rather somber and epic. What we don't get is a real look at Anton Yelchin's Chekov. Whether that's by happenstance, or whether Paramount and Justin Lin made a specific decision not to feature him so soon after his tragic passing, is unclear. Paramount pulled out of a fan Q&A last week out of respect for the actor. I'm interested to see how Trekkers respond to the »

The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond sacrificed story for action, cutting the footage to the Beastie Boys to fantastic/awful (delete where applicable) effect. The second trailer was a much more traditional affair, really opening up the story and giving us some greta character moments. Now, the third trailer is here, becoming an amalgamation of what came before and giving us a taste of Rhianna singing her heart out with latest ballad Sledgehammer. Now, I can’t think of any other Star Trek movie having a chart song to accompany it, and is the fiftieth anniversary the time to start doing it? With Rhianna, no less? It’s an odd choice, but it kinda works here. Released: July 22ndSynopsis: Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin »

Once a movie studio has covered “this movie is a blast” with the Beastie Boys and “this is toweringly epic” with a more orchestral tinge, the final step is naturally “this is earth-shatteringly emotional, but with style” by using Rihanna. That’s the steps taken by the team behind Star Trek Beyond with the final trailer for the sci-fi adventure, featuring the new song “Sledgehammer.”
Following the tragic loss of co-star Anton Yelchin, he doesn’t show up here, but the final trailer carries a more somber tone. It features Chris Pine’s Kirk questioning his enrollment in Star Fleet (and really, the meaning of existence, with the help of some classic on-the-nose dialogue from Karl Urban), Idris Elba‘s Krall in action, and of course, things exploding.

Justin Lin’s latest film “Star Trek Beyond,” the third film in the “Star Trek” reboot franchise, will hit theaters in just a few short weeks, but the acclaimed action director is already in talks for a couple future projects. Along with his “Space Jam” sequel starring LeBron James, Slash Film reports that Warner Bros. is talking to Lin about helming a live-action adaptation of the iconic cyberpunk manga, and later anime film, “Akira.” Though the film has been in development hell for years now, with various directors and actors attached to the project, but Lin might finally be the guy for the job.
Set in a dystopian version of Tokyo called Neo-Tokyo, “Akira” follows two teenage bikers Tetsuo and Kaneda as their lives radically change after dormant »

A final trailer for Star Trek Beyond was just released, and it features a brand new song by none other than Rihanna. If you thought the last two Star Trek movies were action-packed, then this one will blow your mind. We are all about the crazy intense space drama here.
Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and the rest of the Enterprise’s crew is back, along with franchise newcomers Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella. While Rihanna may not actually be in the movie, her involvement on any level is enough to have us sprinting to the theatre.

Last December, Paramount Pictures and CBS Corp. filed a lawsuit against Alec Peters and Axanar Productions for copyright infringement regarding Star Trek.Stating he was making a fan-film and couldnt understand why he was being sued, Peters told The Hollywood Reporter hed long asked CBS to give [him] guidelines similar to what Lucasfilm had done for fans of Star Wars" fan-films. Any infringement was only because no clear rules existed.There is nothing, Alec later wrote on his website, that the Axanar team would like to see more than a set of guidelines from CBS so all fan-films can operate in a way that benefits everyone."This past week, Paramount and CBS released those long-requested guidelines, a common set of rules which, if followed, both corporations say they will not object to, or take »
Paramount Pictures has released the third and final trailer for Justin Lin's Star Trek Beyond; showcasing some new footage, a decidedly bleak tone, and Rihanna's new single. Come inside to take a look!
Between the Enterprise getting blown up and his crew scattered across enemy territory on an unknown planet, the majority of what we've seen for Star Trek Beyond doesn't seem all fun and games for the crew. Today's brand new trailer doesn't get much cheerier and makes it seem like bad things are on the way:
While I've enjoyed the Star Trek reboot films more than the average fan (probably because I've not been a big Trek fan in the past), I'm not sure what to make of Beyond. The second trailer was a lot more fun, but this final trailer isn't hooking me. I thought we were done with the Kirk's father-angst and ready to move into the exploration adventure. »
