Jeep Owners File Class-Action Suit Against Chrysler

Legal action follows death of 'Beyond' actor Anton Yelchin

Investigators are still trying to determine what exactly happened to Anton Yelchin the early morning hours of June 19. But some owners of Jeep Grand Cherokees aren't waiting, filing a lawsuit they hope will gain class action status. Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, a Seattle-based law firm that specializes in high-profile class action cases such as this, filed the suit Thursday in a California federal court against Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, claiming the company "fraudulently concealed and failed to remedy a gear shifter design defect" that affected 811,000 vehic ...

'Beyond' Gets Pop Single ... From Rihanna

For the first time in nearly 40 years of movies, Trek finds musical tie-in

If there is one way to get the attention of young people looking for something to do the weekend of July 22, hearing a Rihanna song play over the closing credits of a Star Trek movie might just do the trick. Apparently that's what Paramount Pictures is aiming for with the release Monday of a new single by the singer called "Sledgehammer," which Entertainment Weekly said would be part of the official "Beyond" soundtrack. The song will debut on Apple's iTunes Store at 8 a.m. ET, according to the magazine. Details of the song were not yet available, but The Verge ...

Koenig On Yelchin: 'A Gifted Performer'

Series icon empathizes with actor's parents after losing his own son

Walter Koenig never had too much of a chance to talk to the actor who would take over the role he originated in "Star Trek," but Anton Yelchin still impressed him. Koenig, who will turn 80 in September, spoke of a time where he shared a two-hour conversation with the younger Chekov on a soundstage "His reputation as an artist preceded him," Koenig told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "I knew I was in the presence of a gifted performer." Yelchin was killed early Sunday morning ...

Late actor's car reportedly subject to massive recall

"Star Trek: Beyond" actor Anton Yelchin could be the first reported death from a flaw in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee that made it part of a massive recall in April.

The recall, which affected 1.1 million Grand Cherokees including, reportedly, Yelch ...

World Remembers Anton Yelchin

Condolences pour in from friends, colleagues, fans

He might not have had the name recognition as a Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto or even Zoe Saldana. But Anton Yelchin was someone who appeared to love performing — whether it was on screen or on the musical stage — and his impact was felt universally. Readers here best know Yelchin, who died early Sunday in an accident at home, as Pavel Chekov. But many more knew him for his work in independent films like "Odd Thomas" and "Charlie Bartlett," as well as films from popular franchises that may not have been so popular themselves, like "Terminator: Salvation." Outpouring of condol ...

Lin Convinced Karl Urban To Return For 'Beyond'

Dr. McCoy actor almost RSVPed his regrets to new film

The worst thing someone ever wants to hear in a relationship is that it's over, and that "it's not you, it's me." Karl Urban almost sent that very message to Paramount Pictures last year when it came time for him to reprise his role of Dr. Leonard McCoy in "Star Trek: Beyond." But it was actually new director Justin Lin that ultimately convinced him to stay. "I was on the fence about doing the movie until I spoke with Justin," Urban recently told IGN's Scott Collura. "Because I had a conflicting schedule, and I had a decision to make about which film to do, and I was no lon ...

Saldana Helps Coach Get 'Beyond' Cameo

Carlo Ancelotti will have his 'normal face' in appearance

It's not easy to get a cameo in a Star Trek movie. But even a soccer coach in Italy can find a way to do it — that is, if you know the right people. Carlo Ancelotti, the new coach of the German soccer team Bayern Munich, said he earned a small non-speaking role in "Star Trek: Beyond" thanks to his indirect friendship with Zoe Saldana. The Uhura actress is married to artist Marco Perego. "The husband of the actress Zoe Saldana is Italian, and we have a good relationship with the family," Ancelotti said, according to The Sport Bible. Ancelotti wouldn't provide much detai ...

Fan-Films: We Weren't Involved In 'Axanar' Guidelines

Very little support for Alec Peters' attempts at fan unity

CBS Corp. and Paramount Pictures are reportedly working on Star Trek fan-film guidelines that could change the world such hobby productions currently exist. And Alec Peters — who, along with his fan-film company Axanar Productions, are being sued by the two studios for copyright infringement — was not invited. So Peters thought he would put together a fan-film coalition of his own to draft guidelines. Except it now seems no one really showed up. Just days after Peters ...

'Beyond' Features A Little Trek History With Starbase

Simon Pegg shares some details on gigantic space station

Watch the new "Star Trek: Beyond" trailer wondering what that impressive space station was? Well, wonder no more. "Beyond" co-writer and co-star Simon Pegg told IGN the station is in fact called Starbase Yorktown, and is located at the edge of Federation space. It's a "diplomatic hub," where Federation inductees can interact with each other and "better understand what being part of the Federation means." Yorktown also has tactical importance for the Federation, Pegg added. ...
