We’ve covered the news that the Sulu of Star Trek Beyond is gay, and the arguments on both sides. But here’s something a bit different—tucked into a second response addressing George Takei’s disappointment, co-writer Simon Pegg has shared his explanation for this change, given that the movie timeline only diverged…
It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ever since the news that Hikaru Sulu, the character originally portrayed by George Takei in the original Star Trek show and played in the current movies by John Cho, would be gay in Star Trek Beyond. And now, the writer of the film, Simon Pegg, has his say.
While the creative team—and the man currently playing Hikaru Sulu, John Cho—of Star Trek Beyond may have decided that including a scene of Sulu with his same sex partner wasn’t a big deal, George Takei had a different response.
Like all Edgar Wright films, The World’s End is a good movie to start with, and it gets even better on subsequent viewings. A lot of that is because of the care the director puts into setting up things that pay off subtly later in the movie.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and the latest film, Star Trek Beyond, is well aware. Its mission? Give fans a film with the spirit of the original series, but also figure out what it actually means to Trek through the Stars. The stardate is August 7, 2015, and we’re witnessing day 30 of 77 on the…
You know how when you’re trying to remember some detail about some fictional universe—so you end up getting lost in the fan-wiki for like twelve hours, only to come out armed with not only what you were looking for, but also a brand new education in the workings of the government of a tiny planet that was only…
There’s a new Star Trek movie coming out in three months—but Star Trek Beyond might as well be shielded by a Romulan cloaking device. It’s been four months since we saw the film’s first trailer, and since then the film’s marketing has gone almost completely silent. Then, this week, things only got weirder.
The 50th anniversary of Star Trek will be celebrated next year with the release of Star Trek Beyond, the third film in the new timeline, which is currently filming. Very little is known about the movie right now and a set video has leaked that raises even more questions.
Sci-fi comedies rarely have a weight of expectation like Absolutely Anything does. A script 20 years in the making. The first movie from Monty Python’s Terry Jones in decades. A cast made up of British comedy icons. A premise that allows.... well, absolutely anything. And it fails to do anything significant (or funny)…
In eight days, everyone will find out that IMF is in a bad way. As Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation begins, the Impossible Missions Force is struggling to survive on multiple levels. Only Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) can restore the agency In this exclusive featurette, you’ll see Hunt has his work cut out for him.
Several months ago, our first look at the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a charity video by Omaze. Now, the same can be said about the third new Star Trek film, Star Trek Beyond.
There wasn’t a new trailer from Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Comic-Con but, in a way, they gave us something better. A three-minute, behind-the-scenes video chock full of nostaliga, intrigue and quite a few easter eggs. Did you miss any? We’ve uncovered them all.
In a new interview with the Radio Times, Simon Pegg says that the genre that he’s spent pretty much his entire career celebrating could actually be causing society to become “infantilized.” And he might want to “retire from geekdom.” Is he trolling, or has he really gotten so little out of years of science fiction?
Simon Pegg stars in what more or less looks like a riff on Bruce Almighty, except with aliens instead of Morgan “God” Freeman. It also boasts the voices of Monty Python (Terry Jones directed and co-wrote) and Robin Williams (in his final role). Check out the Absolutely Anything trailer below!
Well, according to TrekMovie.com, who admittedly has a pretty good track record with Trek movie rumors. The title matches the volume-number-less installment of Star Trek Into Darkness, but seems to confirms the new Enterprise crew will finally be going on its five-year mission to explore strange new worlds, etc.
Some people were trepidatious when it was announced that Simon Pegg would be co-writing the script for the third Star Trek movie. But his description of Trek 3's tone should put everyone at ease — especially fans disappointed with the direction of the rebooted Trek universe so far.
Callin' it: the official trendy word to include in your franchise entry is ROGUE. Because hot on the heels of the Rogue One announcement, we have news that the next Mission: Impossible flick is titled Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Lots of fists/motorcycles/Pegg in the teaser trailer below.
