In what would likely be a dream come true for any Trekkie out there, Paramount Pictures has made the unprecedented move to invite Star Trek fan Michael Gummelt to pitch a new TV series that could allow him to boldly go where no fan as gone before.
Gummelt isn’t an entertainment industry professional or anything like that, which makes this all the more incredible. But he has a thoroughly thought-out pitch for a new TV series called Star Trek Uncharted, formerly known as Star Trek Beyond, which would bring Star Trek into the 21st century, complete with an all-new crew, new technology, and a new Enterprise.

Fast and Furious Supercharged, the new attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood, is like a shot of Nos. It lays dormant, you know it’s there, then when it comes up unexpectedly, it’s crazy fast and great but over very quickly.
“Nos” is a brand of nitrous oxide used in the Fast and Furious movies to give the cars a boost of speed, which is exactly what Fast and Furious Supercharged does for an already classic ride. You see Supercharged is the finale of the Universal Studio Tour, the iconic tram ride that takes you on the back lot of Universal Studios Hollywood, through a ton of memorable locations and settings. Jaws, Psycho, King Kong, there’s a bunch of stuff here. And for a while, you almost forget Fast and Furious is part of it all. But then, it hits you hard and it’s a super exciting ending to the ride.
Fast and Furious Supercharged opens to the public June 25 but, below, you can read more about it. Read More »

Jake & Dave are two dudes who just decided that they wanted to set the world record for most rides in a single day (or as long as the park is open) on Jurassic Park River Adventure, and they chronicled their fun on the splashtastic ride for our enjoyment. Watch the Jurassic Park ride world record below! Read More »

The only thing that takes longer to make than a Pixar movie is the subsequent ride at Disney World. In the past, rides have been developed in tandem with films. These days, the people who create the rides – Imagineers – wait to see if a film becomes important or successful enough before plans move ahead for a permanent place in the theme park. But that doesn’t stop the filmmakers from thinking about it.
According to Inside Out director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera, 45 minutes after first pitching their film, they were on the phone with Imagineering telling them about the idea. While there’s nothing yet confirmed about an Inside Out presence in the parks, the duo told us about their dream integration for Inside Out into Disney parks, which includes an idea that was cut out of the film. Read the Inside Out theme park talk below. Read More »
