TrekZone's Matthew Miller reviews latest Star Trek movie

This review contains some spoilers for "Star Trek: Beyond." It was originally published on TrekZone.org. I can safely say that J.J. Abrams stepping down from the hands-on approach was the best decision made. He's a Star Wars kind of guy and we needed a movie that appeases both the Trekkies and the casual moviegoers, and Simon Pegg delivered that in spades here. For the first time since 2009, I'm able to accept the Kelvin Timeline — yes it's different and weird and unique, but Simon and fellow writer Do ...

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 ...

Boutella's Long Journey From Dancer To Trek

Just a few years ago, the Algerian-born actress was backing Madonna

Sofia Boutella had just finished what she thought was the performance of her life, dancing in front of millions of people watching the Super Bowl. It was 2012 and Indianapolis, and Boutella was a dancer for one of the hottest pop singers ever, Madonna. It was in that moment, however, Boutella knew dancing wasn't in her future. "I told Madonna, 'I think I am not going to keep dancing anymore," Boutella told The Hollywood Reporter's Annie Howard. "Even if it takes two years, I need to stop now. I'm done." Madonna supported her move to get into acting, and in that ti ...

Some changes are coming to next Trek film as release date looms

It's never finished until it's finished. And "Star Trek: Beyond" is just not finished yet.

Aghdashloo's role was added well after principal photography wrapped late last year, and it's unclear what other actors, if any, also have been recalled for the reshoots. The Iranian-born Aghdashloo will provide some international f ...

'Star Trek: Beyond' Shifts Production To Dubai

Plus, actor Idris Elba teases his character's mysterious role

"Star Trek: Beyond" has shifted production from a three-month shoot in Vancouver to the United Arab Emirates, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

'Fast & Furious' Actor Joins 'Beyond'

Joe Taslim reunites with director Justin Lin, bringing martial arts skills

In a sign that there might be a lot more physical action in the upcoming "Star Trek: Beyond," director Justin Lin has brought in a familiar face: Joe Taslim. The Indonesia-born actor worked with Lin in "Fast & Furious 6," in which he played one of the villains, Jah. He is a former professional Judo fighter who competed with the Indonesian championship team until injury forced him to retire in 2009. After that, he focused on acting, first through roles in his native country and then being cast in an early Asian production through HBO, "Dead Mine," in 2012. That led to "Fast ...
