The first episode of Star Trek premiered 50 years ago, and the beloved sci-fi series is now scheduled to return to television next year in a new show on CBS — or more specifically, on CBS All Access, the Network s digital subscription video on demand and live-streaming service.There s also quite a bit of Star Trek history behind the cameras already, with Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller attached as the showrunner and co-creator of the series.Fuller got his start on television writing for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, and he s joined by Nicholas Meyer, the writer and director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, who will serve as a writer and consulting producer on the new show.Along with Fuller and Meyer in both producer and creative roles on the series, Alex Kurtzman the co-writer of the 2009 Star Trek movie that rebooted the franchise and Eugene Roddenberry the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry will serve as executive producers on the show.One particular, unofficial report indicates that the first season of the series will be set in the time between 1991 s Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country — the last film to feature the full cast of the original series — and the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation.The series will premiere on the standard CBS television network in January 2017, but subsequent episodes will be available exclusively on CBS All Access, which requires a monthly subscription.
GIFThe latest trailer for Justin Lin s Star Trek Beyond debuted at tonight s fan event in Los Angeles, and it showed off a retrospective Kirk as his ship is shot out from under him.The trailer teases Idris Elba s villain Krall, and shows off the presumed destruction of the Enterprise.Kirk seems to be facing some second thoughts about his lot in life, with a voiceover from Shohreh Aghdashloo cautioning that it s easy for someone to get lost out in the depths of space: there s only the ship and crew for a captain to count on.Here s the trailer:The rollout for publicity for the latest Star Trek film has been minimal so far this year, and this event looked to jumpstart that process, releasing a behind the scenes documentary, announced that director Justin Lin was finishing up the final edits tonight, and that the film would premiere at a special San Diego Comic Con outdoor IMAX event on July 20th.Star Trek Beyond opens in theaters on July 22.
Speaking at the fan event, Abrams noted that Star Trek Beyond s director, Justin Lin, was outraged at the legal situation that had arisen: Justin was sort of outraged by this as a longtime fan.We ve been holding our breaths waiting for the other shoe to drop when it comes to all the other films.That said, the lawsuit has left a chilled environment for the Star Trek fan film community.Donating money to fund a production is more of a gamble than it was before.Axanar released a statement regarding the news:While we re grateful to receive the public support of JJ Abrams and Justin Lin, as the lawsuit remains pending, we want to make sure we go through all the proper steps to make sure all matters are settled with CBS and Paramount.Our goal from the beginning of this legal matter has been to address the concerns of the plaintiffs in a way that still allows us to tell the story of AXANAR and meets the expectations of the over 10,000 fans who financially supported our project.
Star Trek fans have a reason to celebrate today; not only has a new trailer for Star Trek: Beyond been released, but franchise owners Paramount Pictures and CBS have revealed they're dropping a controversial copyright lawsuit against the makers of the ambitious fan film, Star Trek: Axanar."This wasn t an appropriate way to deal with the fans," Abrams, who's serving as executive producer on Beyond, said when he revealed the news."Justin was sort of outraged by this as a longtime fan… The fans of Star Trek are part of this world.Axanar was originally scheduled to begin filming in January, thanks to a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $630,000.The lawsuit was filed in late December, however, with Paramount arguing that the fan film made use of "innumerable copyrighted elements of Star Trek, including its settings, characters, species, and themes."Not only is the lawsuit against Axanar going away, but Paramount/CBS lawyers told Buzzfeed's Adam Vary that they will draw up some guidelines for fan film projects to follow, so that this sort of thing doesn't happen in the future.
We ve gotten our second taste of what the latest installment of the reimagined Star Trek universe looks like, and we ve got to say that the movie looks like it s going to boldly go where no Star Trek has gone before pardon the pun .The Enterprise was boarded after a fierce battle with the Klingons, and rather than lose the ship, Kirk and Spock set off the auto destruct sequence.In just two installments, we ve seen the Vulcans destroyed, the near annihilation of 23rd Century London, and Starfleet Command nearly brought down to its knees.Our cast of characters also seem to have changed: Chris Pine s Kirk is a man often uncomfortable in command, while Zachary Quinto s Spock is a Vulcan less in control of his emotions.Unfortunately, it still does not answer any questions as to who Elba s character really is and where he comes from; it doesn t even answer questions as to what this movie s plot is in the first place.Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22.
Image Source: YouTubeThis summer, we re bound to see a new chapter from Captain Kirk s adventurous life in Star Trek Beyond.A new trailer for the third movie in the new Star Trek trilogy is out, showing us what looks like a brilliant battle in space where Kirk s Enterprise takes quite a beating from this episode s villain.DON T MISS: This is the Netflix hack the world has been waiting forThe trailer is almost three minutes long, or just enough to leave us wanting more Star Trek action.The Enterprise goes down in what could be a great battle between our heroes and a new race lead by Krall – played by none other than Idris Elba, not that you ll recognize him under all those spines.Also, for some weird reason, there are motorbikes in this Star Trek move.Then again, directing Star Trek Beyond is Justin Lin, whom you might know from the Fast and the Furious saga.
GIFOn Friday, we finally got another trailer for the next Star Trek movie.The most striking difference between this trailer and the first one is the focus on the beliefs and ties of the crew of the Enterprise.There was also a little flashback to the first reboot movie.If I had to guess why Scotty s holding a communicator, it s to tell the captain that the ship is screwed.This is the dynamic we all love and remember.This looks a lot like the old ship the Enterprise gang uses to escape arriving back at the space station.
Spock Zachary Quinto , Bones Karl Urban and Jaylah Sophia Boutella in Star Trek Beyond.A few weeks later, production will shift to Abu Dhabi, all under the code name Washington.The pair was brought on after original writer and director Roberto Orci left the project, and the entire film was restarted from scratch.The crew is scattered, some of them get captured by an alien named Krall played by Idris Elba , and the others have to break them out.Along the way, they ll be trusting a new alien named Jaylah, played by Sophia Boutella, who is the personification of Lin s boldness—she s a striking alien with white skin and dark black marks down her face, buckles and belt all over her clothes, and platinum blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail.Lin asks the actors to run the scene several times and each time the deliveries and banter get crisper and faster, always faster.
In short, things got heated, with fans and professionals on both sides of the argument.We started talking about it and realised this was not an appropriate way to deal with the fans," said Star Trek Beyond's producer J.J. Abrams.Fans of Star Trek are part of this world," Abrams continued.Despite its comparatively high budget and a cast of known actors including Tony Todd and Kate Vernon Axanar is being made on a not-for-profit basis.Meanwhile, in completely legal Star Trek developments, Paramount has revealed the second trailer for this summer's Star Trek Beyond movie, the third entry in the alternate timeline created in the Abrams-directed 2009 reboot.Details on the new show are scarce, although rumours suggest it will be set in the original TV continuity.
