'Beyond' Trailer Coming In May, Says Studio Source

Rumor jives with recent 1701News column predicting the same thing

Just last weekend, 1701News publicly asked Paramount Pictures where the full trailer is for "Star Trek: Beyond," and then even speculated that it would most likely premiere the first week in May. And if a new rumor report from Collider is accurate, we may have been spot on. Collider writer Steve Weintraub said a Paramount source informed him that not only would the trailer drop in May, but that the studio is planning a special event in Los Angeles surrounding its release. It's one of t ...

Lin: 'Beyond' Will Acknowledge Nimoy's Death

PLUS: Director says he took on a 'rescue mission' of 50th anniversary film

Leonard Nimoy pulled himself out of a semi-retirement to portray Spock for the first time in nearly two decades when he appeared in 2009's "Star Trek," and again four years later in "Star Trek: Into Darkness." So it's only fitting that Nimoy's passing last year finds its way into "Star Trek: Beyond," and director Justin Lin says he couldn't move forward without it. "It's something you'll see in the film," Lin told Film Journal International, according to TrekCore. "It obviously affected everybody because he's been a big part of our lives. There's an attempt to acknow ...

Dude, Where's Our 'Star Trek: Beyond' Trailer?

Michael Hinman is predicting a May 6 full trailer premiere

If you're reading this the same day I published it, then it's April 8, 2016, and we're exactly 105 days away from the release of "Star Trek: Beyond." Star Trek fans, of course, know all about the July 22 date. But at least when it comes to the rest of the world, they may have already forgotten. That's because with "Beyond" set to premiere a little more than three months from now, all anyone has been given about the movie is a Beastie Boys-featured teaser trailer attached to "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and really that's it. So I'm sure I'm not alone when I ask Paramo ...

Axanar Director: We're Trying To Reach A Settlement

Robert Meyer Burnett wants studios to let them finish film, then take it for free

There seems to be little motivation from CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures to settle its copyright infringement lawsuit against an "independent" Star Trek fan-film production, but the director in charge of that production thinks he has a win-win settlement. "Let us make the movie," Robert Meyer Burnett, the director of "Star Trek: Axanar," said "We will give it to you when we're done, and you can have it for free. And if you like it, you can put it on your streaming service." Burnett was a guest last week on the podcast "Blind Panels," a somewhat weekly show produced by Comi ...

Star Trek Films With Biggest Box Office Bang

EXCLUSIVE: We compare all 12 movies, all in one place

Do Star Trek fans support the films just because they are Star Trek? Are more recent outings like "Star Trek: Into Darkness" and the upcoming "Star Trek: Beyond" getting a pass simply because they contain our favorite characters? That has been the question Trekkies have been asking for at least the past seven years since director J.J. Abrams released "Star Trek." We see the hundreds of millions of dollars that film and "Into Darkness" have generated, but is it above the past films, like "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home"? Is it even on par? Finding the right comparison can be ...

'Star Trek: Beyond' Premiere Pushed Back

Paramount will give the film an extra two weeks to change its competition

With the premiere of "Star Trek: Beyond" less than a year away, fans are finding out Thursday they are going to have to wait a little longer to see the third installment in the rebooted universe. A couple weeks, at least. Paramount Pictures says it has pushed the premiere of "Beyond" back to July 22. That means its new opening weekend competition will include the Guy Ritchie film "Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur" and the animated series "Ice Age: Collision Course." The move also takes "Beyond" out of direct competition with "The Secret Life of Pets" and "Mike and Dav ...
