Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)
Following on from his recent mock-trailer for Wonder Woman 2, featuring John Krasinski as Green Lantern, YouTuber Alex Luthor has made the above Man of Steel 2 video that imagines how the touted sequel could include a few more of Supes’ supporting characters. Namely, Tom Hardy as Brainiac and Alexandra Daddario as Kara Zor-El Aka Supergirl. Not to mention Henry Cavill as Superman’s evil clone, Bizarro.
As ever, this is a
Tom Hardy Had a Complete Break Down After Star Trek: Nemesis
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
"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,
According to AICN, Meyer is a writer and producer on the project and he may even end up directing it if it moves forward. According to their source, the mysterious Star Trek project is "not a book or documentary and it’s not a video game.”
So what could it be? It'd have to be some kind of new series, separate from Star Trek: Discovery, which Meyer also worked on. There's no official word on what's going one with this project, but the report speculates on what could come of it:
Wouldn’t it be Wild if Star Trek suddenly turned into
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.

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
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,
Ron Thornton – who worked on Bablyon 5, Star Trek, Spaceballs and more – has sadly passed away.
We have some sad news to pass: visual effects pioneer Ron Thornton has passed away after a lengthy battle with illness.
Thornton began his career working in special effects for Doctor Who and Blake’s 7, and went on to forge an impressive path through the world of visual effects. He worked on sixty-five episodes of Babylon 5 (through his company, Foundation Imaging), seven of Star Trek: Enterprise, and seventeen of Star Trek: Voyager (on which he co-created Species 8472 and worked on the famous crash landing scene from Timeless, which earned an Emmy nomination).
His visual effects prowess was also implemented on Star Trek: Nemesis, Starship Troopers: The Series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the 2005 version of Captain Scarlet and the 2001 directors edition of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. He worked in models and miniatures,
Now we have a question for you: What is the best Star Trek movie?
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,
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
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.

There are the vibrant fan communities that, even during the franchise’s many dormant periods, ensured that “Star Trek” would never actually die. And there are the many real-life scientists and astronauts whose passion for boldly going into the real depths of the unknown were inspired by a show
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.
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?
