Star Trek teaser

This year marks the 50th birthday of the first episode of the first Star Trek TV series, which would go on to launch an entire franchise spanning decades and worlds and several different types of media. Next year, the franchise returns to its small-screen roots (albeit on an on-demand subscription service instead of on regular old broadcast television). It’s missing that milestone anniversary by a matter of months, but something this exciting is probably worth the wait.

In the meantime, CBS isn’t wasting any time promoting its big, splashy new project. They’ve unveiled the very first Star Trek teaser, which isn’t much more than a glorified title treatment but is worth a look all the same, if only because it’s an exciting reminder that, yes, Star Trek will be returning to television in the not-too-distant future.  Read More »

2037 Winter's Dream Trailer

It’s bold and risky to hype a movie by using Mad Max to describe it, especially after the action masterpiece that was Mad Max: Fury Road was nominated for Best Picture. But that’s exactly what a new sci-fi movie called 2307: Winter’s Dream is doing, and once you watch the trailer for the movie, you’ll see that it’s at least accurate in terms of the style of the movie — but unfortunately, not the quality. However, it does look like it would be a fun discovery if it were sitting on the shelf of a video rental store.

Transformers 5 Cast

Just yesterday brought the announcement from Paramount Pictures that Transformers 5 would officially be titled Transformers: The Last Knight. Now the sequel is starting to add some cast members to join Mark Wahlberg returning as Cade Yaeger along with franchise newcomers Isabela Moner and Jerrod Carmichael, and their first addition is an old ally.

Josh Duhamel will be coming back for Transformers: The Last Knight, after sitting out Transformers: Age of Extinction. Michael Bay and Mark Wahlberg both welcomed Duhamel back to the franchise online, and there’s a chance Duhamel may not be the only returning star from the first three movies.

transformers 5 title

Eventually, they’re going to stop making Transformers movies. They have to quit at some some point. All things must pass. However, Paramount is betting big that their lucrative franchise will outlive the interest of director Michael Bay, who is set to helm his fifth entry in the series. After all, they’ve assembled an entire writers room dedicated to hashing out sequels and spin-offs for the next decade or so. Robots who can turn into cars and then back again so they can punch each other in the face are here to stay.

Now, the official Transformers movie Instagram has released a brief teaser for the upcoming fourth sequel, but don’t get your hopes up for anything too extravagant. This is just thirty seconds of ominous noises, an extreme close-up of Optimus Prime’s face, and a title reveal. That last one is the biggie, of course.

rey's island

The big questions coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens are who Rey’s parents are and where she comes from. Daisy Ridley‘s character even quips that its “a big mystery” early on in the film, and there are certainly a lot of theories going around to who it might be. One piece of evidence that many fans seem to be holding on to comes from John Williams‘ score from the film. We’ve posted about this in the past, but fans have analyzed Rey’s theme (the best song from the new movie) and have drawn some conclusions from that piece of music.

But did John Williams even know who Rey’s parents were when he wrote that piece or orchestration? If not, surely Oscar-nominated editor Maryann Brandon must have been told when she was helping J.J. Abrams shape the flow of the story in the editing room, right? The answer may surprise you — find out after the jump.
