Chris Pine Makes 'Star Trek 3' Wish

Could Khan's blood become a drawback?

If actor Chris Pine had his way, "Star Trek 3" would explore a darker side of Capt. James T. Kirk. Pine, who starred as Kirk in director J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” and "Star Trek: Into Darkness,” teased a possible plot twist while promoting his latest film, "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit." “Well, for anybody that has seen the second one, given the fact that Kirk’s been revived by Khan’s blood, you know I think there’s definitely room for Kirk to go dark, which we’ve obviously seen in the original series," Pine recently told Total Film. "That would be fun, I think.” With the si ...

'Star Trek 3' Recruits Two New Writers

J.D. Payne, Patrick McKay will script sequel alongside Roberto Orci

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have signed J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay to script "Star Trek 3" alongside Roberto Orci. Alex Kurtzman ("Transformers") and Damon Lindelof ("Lost") will not return to write the new installment, which remains untitled. Orci co-wrote the first two films with Kurtzman, and Lindelof joined them to pen "Star Trek: Into Darkness." Paramount and Skydance are eyeing a 2016 release date for the sequel in time for the franchise's 50th anniversary. Payne and McKay are the writers behind "Boilerplate," an adaption of the graphic novel abo ...

Has Paramount Settled On New 'Star Trek 3' Director?

Joe Cornish once again rumored to helm the next film

Joe Cornish's name is once again attached to "Star Trek 3," and this time, it may be the real thing. Cornish, whose major directing work is centered around a single film that did not make back its budget at the box office, is said to be in early talks with Paramount as the studio's first choice to replace J.J. Abrams on the next Star Trek film. Cornish's name first came up last May when he was reportedly on a list of directors being considered by Paramount and its partners o ...

Biggest Box Office - Adjusted For Inflation (2016)

Where do the Star Trek movies rank, when adjusted for inflation?

Although the way we watch movies has changed significantly in the 30-plus years since "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" first welcomed us into movie theaters, we still like to see how the current slate of Star Trek movies are doing compared to the past films. There is a huge factor we have to overcome, of course, and that's inflation. While $100 million might seem like a lot for "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home," for example, that is not the same value as $100 million in 2016. So this chart, thanks to both The Numbers and ...

Nimoy Bowed Out Of 'Beyond' Before Death

Deteriorating health already had forced Spock Prime from returning

"Star Trek: Beyond" took extra care to address the death of not only Leonard Nimoy, but the character he played for nearly 50 years. But even if the actor had not died last year after a long battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, he still would not have taken part in "Beyond." Adam Nimoy shared the news this past week with Yahoo Entertainment reporter Marcus Errico while promoting his new documentary "For the Love of Spock." "I talked with dad extensively about it," Adam Nimoy said. "He was very happy to be a part of this reincarnation of Star Trek, to be partic ...

I Wish I Could've Reviewed 'Beyond' ...

For what he could pay attention to, Michael Hinman did like it

The last time I saw a Star Trek movie for the first time on opening weekend, it was 1998 for "Star Trek: Insurrection." Ian Cullen, someone I have known since our days chatting in the Star Trek area of AOL, had made the trip from England to Orlando, and I was taking both him and his mom to see the film in a suburb of Tampa. Sure, there's only been three movies since then, so it's probably not that major of a feat. But I've attended previews of "Star Trek: Nemesis," the 2009 "Star Trek" and its sequel, "Star Trek: Into Darkness." I was even invited to a preview of "Star Tr ...

'Beyond' Escapes With $59.6 Million Opening Weekend

UPDATE: International markets add another $30 million

So it wasn't the biggest opening weekend of all time for Star Trek, or even the second biggest. But Paramount Pictures is not disappointed with how "Star Trek: Beyond" opened this weekend in North America, earning $59.6 million, and putting it in line with the high end of projections from analysts. "Beyond" easily beat out its competition for opening weekend. "Ice Age: Collision Course" earned just $21 million, enough for fifth place. The horror film "Lights Out" earned $21.6 million, tying "Ghostbusters" in its second week for third place. Universal Pictures' "The Secret ...

Thursday 'Beyond' Previews Beam In $5.5M

Could that suggest a bigger opening weekend than expected?

Thursday previews worked really well for "Star Trek: Beyond" to kick off its premiere weekend. The film has pulled in $5.5 million at preview locations at more than 3,000 theaters Thursday night. That easily topped its new release competition, according to Variety. "Lights Out" from New Line Cinema earned $1.8 million on Thursday, while "Ice Age: Collision Course" grabbed just $850,000. "Beyond" earned a little more than $1,774 per theater in limited showings, compared to just $300 per theater for "Collision Course." That could affect Friday's numbers a little bit ...

'Beyond' Should Rank Third Among Trek Openings

However, it looks to top 'The Motion Picture' with largest worldwide gross

"Star Trek: Beyond" is set to premiere this Friday, and while its opening might be smaller than the other two films in J.J. Abrams' universe, it's still expected to hit No. 1 for the weekend. "Beyond" is expected to debut with $50 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter, in the lower range of the $48 million to $60 million opening predicted by Deadline.com earlier this month. However, if reviews of the film continue to trend high — aggregator ...

Trek Online Players Confused About Ferengi Ship Offer

Game developer won't reveal criteria on how gold-plated ship is awarded

The email touted a "glorious ship, just for you." It offered a gold-plated Ferengi Nagus Marauder ship that was "sure to stand out on your missions throughout the final frontier." The ship isn't real, of course. Instead, it's a perk in the massively multiplayer online game Star Trek Online, and was sent out to select subscribers in the game. And we mean very select — so pin-pointed, the company behind the game won't reveal what criteria they used to award the in-game object. "The gold-plated (Tier 6) Ferengi ship was sent out to a select group of players as part of an email ...
