I’m in Las Vegas for the yearly CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest) which is the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors. The convention is filled with talks about how to maximize profits and a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of their upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond, and some even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.
This morning we saw a presentation from Paramount Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Terminator Genisys, Mission Impossible Rogue Nation, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, Star Trek 3, Zoolander 2 and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free CinemaCon Paramount reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Star Trek 3 is ramping up, with a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung, with Justin Lin set to direct. We know very little about the film at this point, but we can presume that cast members such as Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Zoe Saldana will return, and we know that Idris Elba plays a villain. Now the cast has a new member, as Algerian actress Sofia Boutella, last seen in Kingsman: The Secret Service, has signed on to play “a lead role.” Read More »

Last week brought a major rumor that Idris Elba would be playing a Klingon villain in Star Trek 3. So inevitably, this week brings a stringent denial of said rumor. Star Trek 3 star and writer Simon Pegg says in no uncertain terms that the talk isn’t true — the Klingon part of it, anyway. The Idris Elba part might still be.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In the rebooted Star Trek franchise, it’s all about the villains. Or at least pre-release, it is. Everyone knows who the main characters are but there’s always a question of who they’ll be tangling with. In the second film, the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch’s character was a particular spot of controversy. So that begs the question: will villain questions continue into part three?
The early answer to that question is “Yes.” Variety reports that Idris Elba is in early talks to play a villain in Star Trek 3. However, there are no details on who – or what – he could be playing. Directed by Justin Lin, the film is scheduled for release July 8, 2016. Read more about the Idris Elba Star Trek 3 news below. Read More »
With Simon Pegg co-writing the new script for director Justin Lin, things have been kind of quiet on the Star Trek 3 front. That’s because the movie is being shaped and finalized as you read this story. But other facets of pre-production must be happening if they hope to start shooting in the spring for July 8, 2016 release.
One of those moving parts is casting and the latest rumor is that everyone’s go-to villainous actor, Bryan Cranston, is being sought for a role. Another rumor is the film features three new, lead female characters: the Federation President, a new Starfleet captain and Bones’ ex-wife. Read more about the latest Star Trek 3 rumors below.
