What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 40 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!

Star Trek: The Next Generation star Brent Spiner tells WhatsPlaying why most Science Fiction, including Star Trek, isn’t morally correct:
The problem is, in terms of science fiction, I don’t think I’ve ever seen science fiction of any kind where they don’t have blasters and phasers, and yes, we can put them on stun but we’re still blowing people out of the sky in Star Trek. There’s this illusion that Star Trek is somehow morally correct in every way but it really isn’t, there are wars, we’re blowing people away we’re exploding ships with thousands of people in them…what is that about? I don’t get that. It really is unfortunately an illusion. You know Gene Roddenberry, God bless him, was a policeman, he knew what it was to carry a firearm and when he created Star Trek his whole idea was “Wagon Train to the Stars”, that’s what he said. Wagon Train was the old west, they all carried guns and so we all carried guns on Star Trek and I think it would have been really great if they’d done away with that and tried to deal with people without resorting to violence. Would we have all learned the “Vulcan Pinch”! I mean I knew it they didn’t teach it to… for good reason they didn’t teach it to Dorn [Michael Dorn, Worf] because he’d be out of control doing it to everybody if he didn’t get his way [Laughs].
