I’d say “I can’t believe they made another xXx movie,” but in a year where we’ve gotten sequels for everything from Independence Day: Resurgence to Snow White and the Huntsman, of freaking course they made another xXx movie. After all, Vin Diesel is bigger now than he’s ever been, but even he can’t make another Fast and the Furious movie every year. Why not squeeze him into a different action-adventure in the meantime?
Directed by D.J. Caruso, xXx: Return of Xander Cage brings the extreme-sports-enthusiast-turned-spy out of retirement for a dangerous new assignment. Samuel L. Jackson is back as his handler, Augustus Gibbons, and the supporting cast includes Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, and Kris Wu. Watch the first xXx: Return of Xander Cage trailer below.

This weekend marks the debut of Star Trek Beyond, and by all accounts it’s quite good. So good, in fact, that Paramount is already moving full speed ahead on a sequel. But there’s a bittersweetness underlying all the warm buzz and giddy celebration — Star Trek Beyond is one of the last-ever completed roles of actor Anton Yelchin, who recently passed away at the age of 27. So how will the franchise deal with Yelchin’s character Chekov going forward?
Producer J.J. Abrams said the filmmakers are still weighing their options, pointing out it’s still “too early” to announce a decision. But the one thing they definitely won’t do, he revealed, is recast the role of Ensign Pavel Chekov with a new actor. Read More »
Star Trek Beyond opens in just a few days and a new TV spot has spoiled one of the film’s biggest twists. In other words, you probably shouldn’t watch that new TV spot. I highly recommend not watching that new TV spot. And now Simon Pegg, the co-writer of the film and the man wearing chief engineer Montgomery Scott’s red uniform, has made it clear that you shouldn’t watch this new TV spot. This may have the opposite effect and entice you into actually watching this new TV spot, but hey, at least we’re trying here. At the very least, now you know exactly what you’re getting into here rather than blindly stumbling into a 30 second advertisement that blatantly gives away a third act reveal.

The early buzz is strong for Star Trek Beyond. Oddly, the film may not screen in certain territories for critics, but considering the first wave of reviews are almost as positive as they were for J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 reboot, maybe that’ll change. Inheriting the director’s chair from Abrams is Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), and another trailer has been released for Lin’s sequel.
Below, watch the final Star Trek Beyond trailer.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In just a couple days, fans will get to see Star Trek Beyond in theaters. Some will be lucky enough to attend the premiere at Comic-Con on Wednesday night while others can see it if they’re able to check out the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres that same day. Otherwise, Thursday night will bring the first nationwide screenings of the movie so we can all see if the early buzz on the sequel is right on the money.
In the meantime, a new Star Trek Beyond TV spot has arrived and it reveals an interesting detail about the villain played by Idris Elba. However, if you’re looking to go into the sequel knowing as little as possible, this could be considered a spoiler, so we’ve saved this reveal for after the jump. Read More »
UPDATE: Paramount has officially announced that a fourth Star Trek movie is in development and that yes, it will somehow find a way to bring Chris Hemsworth’s George Kirk into the fold. Time travel has played a major role throughout Star Trek‘s 50-year history (heck, it played a major role in the mere existence of these newest movies), so this unlikely reunion is perfectly in line with what has come before. No director is attached yet, but J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay are writing the screenplay. The entire cast is expected to return minus Chekhov, who will be retired from the Enterprise crew following the tragic death of Anton Yelchin. The original article follows below.
We’re still a few days from seeing Star Trek Beyond premiere at San Diego Comic-Con, followed by hitting theaters everywhere late next week (or a bit earlier if you head to the Star Trek marathon at AMC Theatres). While the early buzz is pretty stellar, most of us are still in the dark about what happens in the movie, but now we’re all on even footing when it comes to knowing something about Star Trek 4.
One thing we’ve seen in the trailers for Star Trek Beyond is a hint that Captain Kirk’s arc in the movie is about doing more than living up to the legacy of his heroic father George Kirk, played by Chris Hemsworth before he became Thor, who died in the opening of the 2009 reboot from J.J. Abrams just after Kirk was born. Therefore, it only makes sense that news of the return of Chris Hemsworth to the franchise comes from Abrams as well. Find out more after the jump. Read More »
Next week brings Star Trek Beyond to theaters, and it sounds like the movie gets the franchise back on track after Star Trek Into Darkness stumbled a bit. Director Justin Lin is at the helm of the franchise, reinvigorating the sci-fi universe that was rebooted back in 2009 by J.J. Abrams. In a few days we’ll find out if fans like the movie as much as critics have so far, but plans for Star Trek 4 are already in the works, so Paramount Pictures must be pretty confident.
Since Star Trek Beyond has the benefit of hitting theaters during the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the original series, it only makes sense that the sci-fi property that influenced the world of technology gets presented in a still experimental new format. We already heard Star Trek Beyond would get the three-screen Barco Escape treatment, and now a trailer teases just what that experience will be like for audiences near one of the just over a dozen locations that houses it.

In a little over a week, Paramount will release Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the Kelvin timeline created J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot. This time around Justin Lin takes over the reins as director, which led some fans to wonder if the franchise was ditching its roots for Fast and Furious-style adventures in space.
The good news is that by many accounts, Star Trek Beyond comes closer than any of the Kelvin movies at capturing the spirit of the original TV series. The other good news is that the film also seems to feature some really great action set pieces. The bad news is… well, actually, it doesn’t sound like there is a ton of bad news. Not everyone was completely enamored of the film, of course, and hardcore Trek fans will surely have their own ideas about what a new Trek movie should or shouldn’t be. But overall, it sounds like fans of this franchise can look forward to another fantastic adventure. Get the Star Trek Beyond buzz below. Read More »
