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.
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.

The news that popular Star Trek character Sulu will be gay in the latest instalment of the film has largely been met by praise – except from George Takei, who starred as Sulu in the original series.Now the cast of Star Trek Beyond, which has just been released in the UK, have said they support the decision."It is high time for an LGBT character to be included in the Star Trek universe," Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock, told the BBC.Takei, who is gay, earlier told the Hollywood Reporter that while he was "delighted" to see a gay character in the film it was "twisting of Gene Roddenbury's creation, to which he put in so much thought."British star Simon Pegg reiterated that the current iteration of the character "doesn't change George's Sulu in any way", and claimed that Takei's vision of his own character would remain the same, despite the reboot.This is the first time a Star Trek film or show has had an LGBT character, and it may not be the last – showrunner Bryan Fuller suggested the new TV series may have a similar character.
You could forgive Star Trek s flaws as a new reboot finding its way.Seven years later and Beyond is still failing to live up to it.It didn t. Of course, it didn t always know what to do with a bench this deep.It has something else in common with The Voyage Home, but we ll get to that in a bit Kirk, Spock, Bones, Uhura, Scotty, Chekov, and Sulu each make important contributions to the plot.In addition to the competence porn of the crew, co-writers Simon Pegg and Doug Jung deserve praise for the way their dialogue capitalizes on the chemistry of the cast.Zachary Quinto s Spock and Karl Urban s Leonard McCoy really steal the show in this regard.

The original Star Trek series and subsequent sequels stubbornly and persistently refused to frame their dramas in black-and-whites.Balance of Terror , for example, transformed heretofore-unseen Romulans from villains into tragic heroes over the course of an hour.As happened in so many episodes, the writers avoided the cheap path of good versus evil.The first run of films started well, but eventually just offered a procession of baddies.Along the way they lost sight of the single, overarching lesson of half a century of Trek is that the struggle is within us - for understanding – and not against some imagined other.When Trek can t get beyond binaries, its finely tuned universe - where most of the sources of human conflict have been resolved - falls apart.
Pokémon Go heralds a new dystopian age that we should all be fretting about, film director Oliver Stone has warned.Speaking at Comic Con on Thursday to promote his new movie about US National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, Stone described the data-slurping tactics of the freakishly successful game as a new level of invasion.The panel—also featuring Snowden stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, and Zachary Quinto—was asked about the surveillance potential of the game.Quinto, of Star Trek and Heroes fame, replied: I feel as long as you can find a balance in that, and limit your Pokémon Go time, then I m all for it.He joked that Comic Con was probably crawling with Pokémon, but a stony-faced Stone cut in: It s not really funny.The Oscar-winning director of Platoon said:
It might seem a little strange to feature a trailer for Oliver Stone s Snowden as one of the big previews on the first day of Comic-Con International in San Diego, but the audience for Comic-Con goes well beyond superheroes and sci-fi these days.Open Road Films premiered the new trailer for Snowden during a Thursday panel at the convention, and both Stone and leading man Joseph Gordon-Levitt were on hand to introduce the latest look at the upcoming biopic of Edward Snowden, the former U.S. national security contractor who leaked classified information about the country s surveillance of citizens private information.Written and directed by Stone Platoon, JFK , Snowden is based on Russian attorney Anatoly Kucherena s novel Time of the Octopus — about his time working with Snowden in Russia, where he still serves as his legal representation — and Luke Harding s novel The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World s Most Wanted Man.Gordon-Levitt Looper portrays Snowden in the film, which follows his life and career leading up to and following his decision to leak classified information about the American government s surveillance of its citizens, and his time spent in Russia while attempting to receive asylum and avoid extradition to the U.S.Divergent franchise star Shailene Woodley plays Snowden s girlfriend, who currently lives with him in Russia.The cast is filled out by Oscar-winning actress Melissa Leo The Fighter , as well as Zachary Quinto Star Trek Into Darkness , Tom Wilkinson Michael Clayton , Rhys Ifans The Amazing Spider-Man , Timothy Olyphant Justified , Scott Eastwood Gran Torino , and Nicolas Cage Leaving Las Vegas .
Director Oliver Stone thinks the future is bleak in a world full of Pokémon Go players.It is a new level of invasion, he said of the insanely popular game while on a panel at Comic-Con Thursday, according to BuzzFeed.It s the biggest new fastest-growing business ever, and they have invested a huge amount of money into — as what surveillance is — data mining.Data mining every single person in this room for information as to what you re buying, what you like — above all, your behavior.Niantic, the company behind the smash-hit app that uses GPS for its augmented reality experience, has already admitted to some security issues surrounding the Google accounts of iOS users.The company made a fix and assured users the app only accesses basic Google profile information specifically, your User ID and email address .
A fragmented franchise and tired direction demand a new mediumStar Trek @ 50 Visiting the new Star Trek Exhibition in Blackpool recently I was reminded of my soft spot for quark – no, not the elementary particle or the curdled dairy treat but that ugly little alien who runs a strip bar in Deep Space Nine.I say reminded because things have changed considerably for the franchise since the Federation had to kick out the Dominion in a move reminiscent of some post-Soviet European satellite state shaking off its Russian shackles.Now, as we mark the 50th anniversary of the original TV series on NBC, CBS has announced plans for Star Trek Discovery early in 2017.Going forward, however, the Star Trek franchise has three distinct audiences that it must satisfy: the old guard, who revere the canon; fans of new root boot with a soft spot for Zachary Quinto – sorry girls, you re not his type; and total Star Trek newbies onramped by the latest film.Memories: the shifty Quark from Deep Space Nine
This election cycle, like many before it, the concept of voting machine hacking is going to be on people s minds.Though it s probably never happened, it is theoretically possible, and that s scary.Should people worry about their votes being stolen by hackers?Or, should they be more afraid that the threat of hacking will keep voters away from the polls?Many people are saying that s the real concern.It s a lot to comprehend—so we asked Snowden and Star Trek Beyond star Zachary Quinto to help us explain it.
Roberto Orci, a writer and producer on the recent Star Trek films, is known for being outspoken and opinionated.When he says something outrageous, most of the time it s not that surprising because that s who he is.You see, Orci is of Mexican descent, and in his years as a huge Trek fan, he always connected to Spock, the Vulcan, on a very personal level.This is a connection Orci has explained many times in the past, one that makes plenty of sense.What makes less sense is his quote at Variety s Inclusion Summit on Tuesday.I always thought of Mr. Spock as a Latino, he s an alien, an immigrant, Orci said.

At the Paramount Pictures CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, CEO Jim Gianopulos hinted that the studio may be developing more Star Trek films, alongside Skydance, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.Though Gianopulos did not offer up any additional details, it is known that Quentin Tarantino has been working on a Star Trek film, alongside J.J. Abrams, who served at the helm of the previous Star Trek trilogy movies.In addition to one of the two films likely being the one pitched by Tarantino, Trekmovie.com also predicts that the second might be a project that was announced in 2016, and would feature Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as George Kirk, father of Kirk.While this news has not yet been officially confirmed by Paramount, it seems likely that these films will move forward.They would follow the last Star Trek film trilogy, all directed by Abrams and the product of Paramount and Skydance, including Star Trek, which was released in 2009, Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013), and Star Trek: Beyond from 2016.The films have starred Chris Pine (Into the Woods, Wonder Woman, A Wrinkle in Time), Zachary Quinto (Snowden, American Horror Story), Benedict Cumberbatch (Avengers: Infinity War, Sherlock), Idris Elba (Luther, Avengers: Infinity War), and the late Anton Yelchin (Trollhunters).
