After recycling a little too much of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan for the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, the rebooted franchise based on Gene Roddenberry’s classic sci-fi series needed a new direction to bring some freshness back to the final frontier. Thankfully, with Star Trek Beyond, director Justin Lin has managed to craft a extremely entertaining journey back into space for the USS Enterprise. It’s a sequel that blends some of the signature style of the classic Star Trek series with the action sensibilities of a modern blockbuster.

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 »
Actor Anton Yelchin, probably best known for his roles in the J.J. Abrams-produced Star Trek movies, was tragically killed early Sunday morning in a car crash.

It’s going to be a while before we see Guillermo del Toro‘s next movie, which hasn’t even started shooting yet. But in the meantime, he’s got a new small-screen project coming our way, the Netflix animated series Trollhunters. And in typical del Toro fashion, he’s managed to round up quite a cast. Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, and Anton Yelchin will all lend their voices to the fantasy adventure, which is produced by DreamWorks Animation. Read More »
We know that the next trailer for Star Trek Beyond is set to arrive on May 20 and will be revealed as part of a larger “fan event” that will include a Q&A with the cast and director Justin Lin. After all, it’s Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary – this is the perfect excuse to go big. But since that date is still weeks away and you may very well be thirsty for anything and everything related to the next film in the greatest science fiction series of all time, you can pursue a new batch of photos that have shown up online.

I first saw Green Room a few months ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Writer/director Jeremy Saulnier‘s nasty, brutal thriller has wedged itself into my brain in a big way – it’s the kind of movie that’s so intense that it makes most hard-edged genre movies look downright friendly and agreeable. This is take-no-prisoners filmmaking at its finest.
So we’re pleased to debut a new clip from Green Room, which should give you a little taste of what to expect from the final film.

There’s being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and then there’s finding yourself in the middle of a group of neo-Nazis who will stop at anything to cover up a murder. That’s exactly what happens in Jeremy Saulnier‘s latest thriller Green Room when a punk rock band sees something they weren’t supposed to after playing a shady stop on a little cross country tour.
Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) are among the bandmates while Imogen Poots (Fright Night) is the concertgoer whose friend has met a grisly fate at the hands of another band member’s violent ways. They all end up stuck in this hell that is meticulously taken care of by Patrick Stewart and his loyal group of skinheads. A new Green Room red band trailer shows just how intense this movie truly is, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Read More »
Many know Patrick Stewart as the fearless Captain Jean Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, or as Professor X, the noble mentor and leader of the X-Men. But this spring, we’ll see him in a role unlike any other he’s played before, and it’s pretty terrifying.
Green Room is the next thriller from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier, and it delivers the intense, brutal and thrilling face-off between a punk band (including Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots) in the wrong place at the wrong time and a group of methodical, calculated neo-Nazis led by none other than Stewart. Watch a new Green Room trailer that teases this suspenseful match-up after the jump. Read More »
We love Green Room at the site. Both Jacob Hall and I saw Jeremy Saulnier‘s (Blue Ruin) third feature film at last year’s Fantastic Fest, and if it was released last year, it definitely would’ve made our top 10 lists. It’s a frenetic, brutal and uncompromising siege film. Green Room is also a ton of fun, in spite of the dark material.
Saulnier’s action-drama opens in theaters next month, and to continue to raise awareness, A24 has created a Green Room radio show.
