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: 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 …

The news outlet responded, however, with some animated gifs from the video, which can be found by …

‘Star Trek: Beyond’ Plot: 7 Key Dilemmas To Resurrect

Franchise’s longevity offers considerable inspiration

Star Trek’s longevity is a major part of its modern success. But there is so much fodder for new imaginative plot lines in the collective assemblage of original television shows, films, books and other media out there that it can’t be ignored. More than likely, there will be some resurrection of some of this material in the new iteration of films from Justin Lin, Doug Jung and Simon Pegg. Hell, there were even rumors at San Diego Comic-Con that William Shatner might suit up to show up in the film. So, now that the title for “Star Trek: Beyond” has been released, you just h …

Abrams: Takei’s Sulu Reaction ‘Preposterous’

Gene Roddenberry welcomed ‘inclusivity,’ producer says

A lot of people were surprised by George Takei’s reaction that the character he originated in the original “Star Trek” would be outed as gay in the upcoming “Star Trek: Beyond.” One person who really scratched his head over the reaction was none other than producer J.J. Abrams, who completely disagreed with the 79-year-old actor on how Trek creator Gene Roddenberry would receive news of having an original character come out of the closet. “I have nothing but respect for the man,” Abr …
