Star Trek 4

In conversation with Games Radar, Simon Pegg revealed he’s skeptical a fourth Star Trek film set in the Kelvin timeline will ever see the light of day.

The fact is, Star Trek movies don’t make Marvel money. They make maybe $500 million at the most, and to make one now, on the scale they’ve set themselves, is $200 million. You have to make three times that to make a profit. I don’t feel like the last one… They didn’t really take advantage of the 50th anniversary. The regimen at the time dropped the ball on the promo of the film.

And we’ve lost momentum. I think losing Anton [Yelchin] was a huge blow to our little family, and our enthusiasm to do another one might have been affected by that. So I don’t know.

Paranormal Activity 7

Appearing as a guest on The Evolution of Horror podcast, Jason Blum confirmed a seventh film in the Paranormal Activity franchise is currently in development with Chris Landon attached to produce.

We are doing a new Paranormal Activity, we have Chris Landon…he’s coming up with Paranormal Activity 7.


Last Night in Soho

On a recent episode of the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Anya-Taylor Joy described Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho as a “really well-directed acid trip.”

Not to say much about the movie, but when I watch bits of it back in ADR or whatever I am disturbed. It’s very claustrophobic. The colors are so intense. It’s a really well-directed acid trip. I think people will really like it. You definitely will not be bored.

On unrelated news today, there is a great interview with Brandon Routh on Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum’s Podcast where he says, without going into too much detail, that his departure from the Arrowverse was not his decision and “was not handled well”. I am now sad and mad about this.

If you want to hear it, it’s totally worth it:
