star trek beyond trailer breakdown

The new trailer for Star Trek Beyond arrived late on Friday night, instantly washing the dreadful taste of the first trailer out of our mouths. Unlike the initial teaser, this footage looks like it comes from an actual Star Trek movie and you know what that means – there is a whole bunch of stuff to sift through if you go through the whole thing frame-by-frame and shot-by-shot.

Since we haven’t seen the movie, this post will contain all kinds of speculation and over-analysis, which means it could be loaded with potential spoilers. Just trek cautiously. And if you want additional reading, Peter Sciretta’s newly published set visit report sheds additional light on the film (and even directly answers and clarifies some of the observations below).

John Cho Movie Posters

This summer we’ll see John Cho back in action aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise as Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek Beyond. However, he may be known even better for co-leading the comedy trilogy that began with Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. Beyond that, John Cho has struggled to find a lead role in a major studio film that takes advantage of his skills in both drama and comedy, largely because it’s difficult for Asian-American actors and actresses to land lead roles in Hollywood.

Now one New York artist has launched a little viral campaign to bring attention to that issue by creating Photoshopped posters for some of the biggest blockbusters from the past couple years and putting John Cho in the lead roles. What if John Cho starred in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation or Jurassic World? Find out below. Read More »

Star Trek Beyond Set Video

In case you haven’t heard, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. The original TV series premiered back in 1966, and that’s why Paramount Pictures wanted to make sure they got Star Trek Beyond in theaters this year as a way of paying tribute to Gene Roddenberry’s iconic sci-fi creation. So far we don’t know much about the third film in the rebooted franchise, but some new details have come to light.

A set visit to the Enterprise and brief interviews with some of the cast provide a little insight into where we find the crew of the ship, not to mention the state of the ship itself. Plus, get a look at some of the new weapons and an important addition to one character’s family. Read More »

After nine seasons of The Office, it’s all but impossible to picture anyone but John Krasinski affecting Jim Halpert’s smug mug, or anyone other than Brian Baumgartner sounding out Kevin Malone’s slow drawl. But as star Rainn Wilson reminded the world when he posted the audition sign-in sheet last spring, those choices weren’t always totally obvious.

A recently surfaced featurette shows some of the actors who didn’t make the cut during the audition process, specifically Seth Rogen for the part of Dwight, Bob Odenkirk for Michael, Eric Stonestreet for Kevin, Kathryn Hahn for Pam, and John Cho and Adam Scott for Jim. Check it out after the jump.
