Star Trek

Star Trek Beyond will be the first film in the rebooted sci-fi franchise that isn’t directed by J.J. Abrams. But that doesn’t mean the sequel is boldly going where the previous films haven’t gone before, at least when it comes to the release strategy.

Paramount Pictures, Skydance, Bad Robot and IMAX have announced that Star Trek Beyond will be digitally re-mastered for the giant screen format and will hit IMAX screens the same day it hits traditional screens on July 22nd, 2016. Read More »

star trek musical

William Shatner is 84 years old, which means he’s reached the age where he’s pretty much allowed to do whatever the hell he wants. It’s his prerogative as an octogenarian living legend. You don’t tell Captain Kirk what to do, especially now that he’s old and belligerent.

That’s the big problem with Shatner talking about wanting to put on a Star Trek musical for the franchise’s 50th anniversary next year. It’s a terrible idea. It cannot end well. Nothing about it sounds good. But let’s face it – would you tell the Captain of the Enterprise “no”? Find Shatner’s statements about this proposed nightmare, as well as a few reminders of his very, uh, eventful singing career after the jump.

Trek Wars Trailer

Another day, another variation on the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve seen the original Star Wars trilogy presented like The Force Awakens, and someone else decided to cut footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the score for the trailer. Now one more has just arrived, and I’m surprised it took this long.

Trek Wars is a mash-up of J.J. Abrams‘ rebooted Star Trek franchise and the director’s tackling of the Star Wars saga with The Force Awakens. And it’s edited in such a way that it makes it feel like the two iconic sci-fi properties are at war with each other. Check it out! Read More »

Lens Flare Supercut

A lens flare is something that happens all the time in photography and filmmaking, simply because of how light travels through and reflects inside of a lens. But any good photographer or cinematographer knows how to use it effectively so it’s not just an accident. After all, lens flares can be avoided, but in films such as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, There Will Be Blood, Looper, Gravity, The Wolf of Wall Street, Guardians of the Galaxy and more, they make some shots look fantastic.

A new lens flare supercut runs through dozens of movies featuring the side effect of bright light shining into the lens. Some are better than others, but it just goes to show you how abundant they are. And before anyone tries to make a joke: No, this isn’t just footage from J.J. Abrams movies. Read More »
