Star Trek sequel in 2012?

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 9th 2010 11:00AM
Star TrekIt was announced that the sequel to the recent Star Trek movie is going to be released on May 29th, 2012. This means we'll be able to catch the next Star Trek movie before the world ends, according to the Mayans.

Of course, a sequel was inevitable due to the fact that Star Trek was pretty much the biggest (and in my opinion the best) movie of this past summer. Paramount likely signed all the actors involved to multiple-movie contracts, so getting them back isn't an issue.

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jul 24th 2009 9:29AM
William Shatner gives voice to The Core in the new animated movie, Quantum Quest.A Thursday panel at Comic-Con International announced a new animated project about space that packs a stellar voice cast.

TV stars like William Shatner, Brent Spiner and Mark Hamill will join movie big shots like Chris Pine, Samuel L. Jackson and James Earl Jones in Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey.

Producer -- Dr. Larry "Doc" Kloor (scientist science fiction writer and the only human in history to earn two doctorates simultaneously) -- led the panel with special guests Bob Picardo, Doug Jones and a call-in by Pine.

According to Kloor, Pine plays Dave -- "a photon who lives in Sun City, at the core of the Sun. He's forced from the Sun and drawn into an epic battle between The Core (Shatner -- right) and The Void -- the embodiment of nothingness (Hamill)."

Should Shatner be in the next Star Trek movie?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 26th 2009 8:18AM
ShatnerSo William Shatner says he hasn't seen the new Star Trek movie yet. But he says that he knows it has gotten some great reviews and he's really looking forward to seeing it. He also says he'd delighted to be in the next movie.

So what do you think? Is having Shatner in the next movie a great way to please old Trek fans or do you think having yet another character from the original series would be pushing it, considering they already had Leonard Nimoy in the first one (which is pretty much how I'm leaning)?

Should Shatner be in the next Trek movie?
Yes! He's Captain Kirk for crying out loud!570 (37.3%)
No way. It would be contrived and lame705 (46.2%)
Yes, but only if he plays Denny Crane252 (16.5%)

Everything you didn't want to know about the Star Trek movie

by Brad Trechak, posted May 12th 2009 7:00PM
Star TrekOver at ComicMix, Alan Kistler has written annotations for the new Star Trek movie and how well it fits into the overall continuity of the show. It's a pretty impressive list and does prove that despite the blatant contradiction of the show's history as a result of time travel, they were actually pretty good with getting the details of the characters correct.

Spoilers follow this paragraph. You have been warned.

Here's video of the new Captain Kirk on CHiPs in 1980 (he was born in 1980)

New Star Trek star Chris Pine is the son of Robert Pine, who played Sgt. Getraer on the NBC show CHiPs. The young Kirk was on Jimmy Kimmel Live the other night and they showed a clip of his very first acting appearance, on a 1980 episode of the highway cop show. Look close or you'll miss him.

Saturday Night Live: Justin Timberlake/Ciara

SNL Digital Short: Motherlover
(S34E22) Justin Timberlake returned for his third turn as host and it was tough not to keep expectations pretty high. I mean, if an vengeful warlock were to suddenly put a crippling curse on his music career (like they do), Timberlake could definitely fall back on being a professional SNL host. Yes, this would become a real profession, just for him.

As usual, some sketches fell a bit flat, but Timberlake's over-confident, hammy swagger made things a little more interesting. This particular episode also gave us another legendary musical Digital Short with Timberlake and Andy Samberg and a couple of all-around MILFs. It's tough to top a surprise appearance by Leonard effin' Nimoy, but "Motherlover" was certainly the highlight of the evening. Here are some other notable video moments!

New Star Trek kicks the ass of every other Star Trek

The cast of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek

I'm not the kind of person who normally resorts to pumping something full of hype, but if you are reading this and haven't seen the new big-screen adaptation of Star Trek, you need to be tied to something heavy so that "certain" people can know your whereabouts at all times.

J.J. Abrams' new vision of TV's original Star Trek has everything you expect from a summer movie flick that costs $150 million to make and $8.25 a ticket: laughs, big explosions, smokin' hot alien babes who spend the majority of their screen time in skimpy underwear.

Leonard Nimoy talks about the new Star Trek movie (and Ann Curry's Spock crush)

by Bob Sassone, posted May 7th 2009 3:47PM
Like a lot of Star Trek and classic TV fans, I'll be in line for the new movie when it opens tomorrow (actually, tonight in many cities - check your local listings, as they say). Leonard Nimoy is in it (no, that's not a spoiler), and this morning he sat down to talk with Al Roker on Today (video also here). Roker says that Nimoy put the ears on for the first time in 18 years. Wait, 18 years? That can't be right. I feel old.

Star Trek movie is best thing ever created at any time for any reason

Star Trek movie
The new Star Trek movie has already opened in places like England, France, and Australia. I'm not sure why it opened there first, but the reviews so far have been pretty much off the charts. Variety loves it, The Daily Mail calls it "the best prequel of all-time," Empire says it's "the most exhilarating Trek to date," Urban Cinefile says it's "an extraordinary achievement," Cinema Blend says it's "the best Trek movie since The Wrath of Khan," and Aint It Cool News says "it makes Gone with the Wind look like a maggot-infested crapfest." Well, no, but they say it's really great.

Star Trek trailer shows Kirk as a kid, Sylar acting all Spocky - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 17th 2008 5:47PM
Star TrekI knew that the new Star Trek movie was going to be an origins story, but I didn't realize how far back they were going to go.

The first trailer (not counting that lame teaser trailer that debuted months ago and was only aimed towards hardcore fans who get off on Enterprise blueprints) for the movie is now available. It is attached to some copies of Quantum of Solace (though, sadly, not the place where I saw QoS the other night, damn it) and Paramount has also released the official version online so we don't have to sit through YouTube videos that someone shot in a dark theater.

Star Trek is on EW.com

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 16th 2008 10:52AM
Entertainment WeeklySome images are up at EW.com for the new Star Trek movie starring Chris Pine as Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock. There are also some interviews in the along with an article pushing the revamp of the franchise.

It was a mistake pushing the release of the movie from Christmas Day 2008 to May 2009. This sort of movie would do much better in a December release. Now Star Trek will simply be another movie among all the other summer tentpoles.

In the article, J.J. Abrams describes himself more of a Star Wars fan than a Star Trek fan and that may be reflected in the movie. I'm ambivalent about that idea. On one hand, Star Trek always seemed more a thinking person's franchise whereas Star Wars was always about fights, chases and space explosions. On the other hand, fights, chases and explosions seem to be more popular in sci-fi movies than cogitative fiction.

Star Trek: Enterprise didn't work so well as a prequel. Let's see if this movie does better.

Some new teaser posters for the Star Trek movie

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 18th 2008 4:26PM

Zachery QuintoSince it's Star Trek Week here at TV Squad (the original series, that is), I thought I'd post the first official teaser poster ads for the movie that show what Chris Pine and Zachery Quinto look like as James. T. Kirk and Spock.

Now, it's wrong to judge a book by its cover, or in this case a movie from a teaser poster. But if we can judge the movie on the casting of one of the major parts and/or the makeup used on that actor, then this movie looks awesome. Quinto (Sylar on Heroes) is a terrific choice to play a younger Spock. I say "younger" and not "young" because Quinto is only a few years younger than Leonard Nimoy was when he debuted as Spock on NBC in the 60s. There's not a lot of info about the plot of the movie, only that it takes place before the original show and involves Starfleet, so I'm not sure exactly how young Kirk and Spock are supposed to be (plus we're talking about a half Vulcan here so getting into those details are probably pointless).

But what about the guy playing Kirk?

William Shatner says Captain Kirk was a good hero

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 10th 2008 1:06PM
KirkTo many people, William Shatner is a beloved TV icon. To others, he's a shameless self-promoter, a commercial pitchman for everything from margarine to hotel rooms. Few feel neutral about Shatner, so this story may come as something of a surprise. William Shatner rarely watches himself on TV and film. Like a lot of actors, when he works, he's in the moment and doesn't go back and study what he did and why. It's been working for him. As Denny Crane on Boston Legal, he's won two Emmys in the last three years.
