Paramount Pictures confirm at least two more Star Trek movies

During the 2018 CinemaCon conference in Las Vegas last night, Paramount Pictures CEO Jim Gianopulos announced at least two more Star Trek movies are in the works at the studio.

Whilst showing off their latest slate of films for 2018, the announcement came as a total surprise to the press that were in attendance. Unfortunately, for those of us wanting to know more no further information was forthcoming. Whether the current cast in the latest timeline will return is anyone’s guess, and as for a director or screenwriter, all we have are those stories that Quentin Tarantino has put together a treatment for his take in the latest saga.

At the beginning of April, Zachary Quinto revealed there were three scripts being worked on at the moment.

“First of all, I think there’s a couple of scripts. Because there was a script being written before Quentin Tarantino came up with

J.J. Abrams Drops ‘Overlord’ Footage at CinemaCon, Promises ‘It’s Not a “Cloverfield” Movie’

J.J. Abrams Drops ‘Overlord’ Footage at CinemaCon, Promises ‘It’s Not a “Cloverfield” Movie’
Producer J.J. Abrams makes films with aliens and monsters, time travel and death-defying stunts. Yet in 17 years, his Bad Robot Productions has never released R-rated content — until now. Paramount Pictures’ CinemaCon presentation delivered the first footage from “Overlord,” out this fall from sophomore feature director Julius Avery (“Son of a Gun”).

“This movie is batshit crazy” and “super fun,” said Abrams via videotaped introduction, addressing the 4,300 seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Jacob Anderson, Pilou Asbæk, Dominic Applewhite, Iain de Caestecker, John Magaro, Mathilde Ollivier, and Bokeem Woodbine form the ensemble cast.

The footage opens in June 1944, the night before Allied marines invade Normandy on D-Day. Enemy fire attacks a plane full of World War II soldiers, and several parachute into the ocean. Survivors trek through the forest, and one spots an abandoned Nazi compound and peers through a hole in the wall. A bloody eye leaps into frame.

J.J. Abrams Reveals Overlord As Not Part of Cloverfield Universe

  • Cinelinx
During Paramount Pictures' presentation at CinemaCon 2018, J.J. Abrams cleared the air about their upcoming film Overlord, denying that it's a Cloverfield film. More within...

A few weeks before Netflix's sudden release of The Cloverfield Paradox, news broke that the next Bad Robot film, Overlord, was part of the Cloverfield universe of random films. That turns out to no longer be the case, as J.J. Abrams announced, at CinemaCon 2018, that Overlord is its own film. Moreover, it's the first R-rated film that Bad Robot has ever produced.

When talking about the World War II horror film about Nazis who have employed supernatural forces and terrifyingly gruesome experiments, Abrams said, "It's bat shit crazy!". While, that's indeed exciting for Abrams and horror fans to hear, Cloverfield fans may be bummed about the news.

Thankfully, Abrams also revealed that Bad Robot is in the process of developing a direct sequel

Betsy Heimann (‘Godless’ costume designer) explains how John Wayne’s costumer prepared her for female-centric western [Exclusive Video Interview]

For costume designer Betsy Heimann, the most unusual aspect of Netflix’s western limited series “Godless” was how much it focused on “these women who were put in a circumstance where they had to improvise.” Written and directed by Scott Frank, the show follows a murderous outlaw (Jeff Daniels) hunting down an ex-protege (Jack O’Connell). His search leads him to a small town in New Mexico that, after a mining accident, is populated almost entirely by women, including Michelle Dockery and Merritt Wever. The veteran costumer was excited to “put my stamp on it by showing [women] doing all different things than you would normally” in the male-dominated genre. Watch our exclusive video interview with Heimann above.

Quentin Tarantino and Tom Hardy Excite at CinemaCon, But Sony’s 2018 Slate Feels Oddly Familiar

Sony would like you to know it’s committed to originality. That was the message reiterated by its executives at the studio’s CinemaCon presentation Monday night — and no one was more passionate than chairman Tom Rothman, who spoke of the studio’s “increasing dedication” and “commitment” to the concept.

However, Rothman presided over a show-and-tell that included Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly doing their “Step Brothers” schtick in “Holmes and Watson” as Sherlock Holmes and Mr. Watson (tagline: “The World’s Greatest Dicks”); “Hotel Transylvania 3,” Goosebumps: Haunted Halloween,” “Equalizer 2,” “Sicario 2,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” Marvel’s “Venom,” remakes of “Superfly” and “Miss Bala,” “The Girl in the Spider’s Web,” and teasing mentions of 2019 titles “Men in Black 3,” the still-untitled “Spider-Man: Homecoming” sequel, and “Jumanji 2.”

Many of these films looked appealing; the CinemaCon audience at the Caesar’s Palace Colosseum particularly responded to “Venom,” with Tom Hardy
