Though Fargo series creator Noah Hawley's Star Trek movie appears to be on pause, the director has dropped a couple of hints as to what it could look like.
Director S.J. Clarkson will direct Star Trek 4, according to reports, the first female director in the movie franchise's history.
Simon Pegg has taken aim at the 'poor marketing' which surround the release of Star Trek Beyond, blaming that for the movie's box office failure.
Five different films, including Oscar nominees “Star Trek Beyond” and “Suicide Squad,” won awards on Sunday night at the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards.
2016 has been a great year for cinema but it's also seen some vintage movie bloopers. Even the biggest, most expensive Hollywood blockbusters have fallen prey to the curse of the film howlers, so with help from our pals at MovieMistakes.com here are some of the biggest on screen gaffes of of the last 12 months.Warning, plot spoilers within.
A raft of thespians really made the effort to become unrecognisable for roles in 2016, whether through over-eating (McConaughey), heavy prosthetics (Downton’s Dan Stevens for ‘Beauty and the Beast’) or simply just bad eyebrows (John Travolta in ‘The People Vs O.J. Simpson). Here are a few more of the best.Image credits: Reuters/Disney/Lionsgate/BBC/Associated Press/Cover Media/Warner/Universal/Deadline/Fox/Sony/Focus Features/FameFly/Instagram/AFP/FX/US Weekly/WENN/GC Images
It’s a running joke throughout the none-more-meta superhero comedy that budget and contracts prevent Deadpool from interacting with his more A-list Marvel stablemates – Deadpool himself frequently references X-Men that Fox didn’t allow us to see. Yes, the same turbine-powered mobile aircraft carrier as used by the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fox weren’t allowed to reference the carrier by name, and the design had to be tweaked a little, but ‘Deadpool’ visual artist Emmanuel Shiu confirmed the connection.
The tangled and twisted ‘X-Men’ universe is so full of plot holes and parallel timelines it’s impossible to join the dots. By far the biggest plot hole in ‘Apocalypse’ is the fact that none of the characters seem to have aged at all – the film is set in 1983, 21 years after the events of ‘X-Men: First Class’, but the cast have barely aged a day.
Idris Elba’s ‘100 Streets’ is one such film. Elba, famed for his role in ‘The Wire’, has appeared in a host of features like the ‘Thor’ franchise, ‘Prometheus’, ‘Pacific Rim’, and this year’s ‘Zootropolis’. Joining him in ‘100 Strets’ are Gemma Arterton, Tom Cullen, and Franz Drameh, yet the British flick could only muster £245 in its opening weekend, according to HuffPost.
‘Star Trek Beyond’ attracted controversy earlier this year when it was revealed that the film’s incarnation of Enterprise crew member Hikaru Sulu is gay. In the film this amounted to a short sequence when Sulu greets his husband and the pair’s daughter, who would later be in jeopardy at the film’s conclusion. - Moff Tarkin confirmed for Star Wars: Rogue One return?
It looks as though Sulu isn’t a fan of the ‘Star Trek’ reboots. During an interview with IGN, the 79-year-old ‘Star Trek’ star revealed that he isn’t exactly fond of the new ‘Star Trek’ reboot movies. “The rebooted ones are missing that magic ingredient that makes a Gene Rodennbery Star Trek so unique and singular,” he said.
Depending on your point of view, 2016′s summer of blockbusters can be described as a number of things, with titles like ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’, ‘Captain America: Civil War’, ‘Jason Bourne’, ‘Star Trek Beyond’, ‘Suicide Squad’, ‘The BFG’, ‘Ghostbusters’, and ‘Finding Dory’ pleasing movie goers to varying degrees as well as being divisive with critics. Over at comScore, the numbers have been tallied and, according to The Wrap, 108 days after the first Friday in May 2016 summer films are ahead of 2015′s but only narrowly. Annual box office takings are up nearly 5%, which is largely down to a few big-hitters from the likes of Disney and Marvel, not to mention some consistent numbers from Warner Bros. too.
Fans of the rebooted ‘Star Trek’ movies will doubtless have noted that here was something missing from the latest instalment, ‘Star Trek Beyond’. Key in the first two movies, she does not appear in ‘Beyond’, and now co-star – and the movie’s writer – Simon Pegg has revealed why. “With this it felt like we would under-serve her if we included her,” he told the official ‘Star Trek’ podcast.
Despite its impressive gross and mostly positive reviews, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ was met with indifference by Trekkies when it was released back in 2013. Karl Urban insisted that he is delighted that he did make the decision to return for ‘Star Trek Beyond’.
John Cho, who recently revealed his character Sulu is shown to be in a same-sex marriage in the upcoming sci-fi movie, says that a kiss with his character’s husband did not make the final cut. Obviously, I just met the kid, and then Doug [Jung, co-writer of ‘Star Trek Beyond’ who appears as Sulu’s husband] is not an actor. Cho reveals that screenwriter Jung (who collaborated with Scotty actor Simon Pegg on the screenplay) was cast in the role as the production “couldn’t find an Asian actor willing to play gay in Dubai,” where the scene in question was shot.
The Captain Kirk actor thinks the message of the new Trek film serve as a reminder of the good we can do as humans when we work together in unity.
Anton Yelchin’s role in the rebooted ‘Star Trek’ series will not be recast ahead of the next film, following the actor’s tragic death in June. Producer JJ Abrams confirmed that Pavel Chekov would be absent the recently-announced sequel, but does not know how the actor’s death and character’s absence will be addressed. - Who Are These Stars In Make-up On Star Trek Beyond?
