We all know that JJ Abrams is the king of secrecy. He wants his audiences to have the purest possible experience before going in to a movie. But he has just admitted there’s one secret he shouldn’t have kept, and that’s the villain’s identity in Star Trek Into Darkness.
Recently a rumor hit the web that there may be another Star Trek series in the works, and why not? There have been many incarnations of Star Trek on the big and small screen, and considering Trekkies can’t get enough, a new series could totally go like gangbusters.
History often repeats itself, especially in Hollywood. Back in the late seventies, Star Trek: The Motion Picture actually became the most expensive movie of its time, costing a whopping $46 million. The film did well, but with Star Trek II, Paramount cut a lot of corners and delivered the cheapest film in the franchise. Not only did it come in at the rock bottom price of $11.2 million, it also made a ton of dough at the box office, and is still the best movie in the series
The Fox show Sleepy Hollow has gotten off to a strong start in the ratings, and it’s great to see horror back with a vengeance on TV. Not only does the show have the writing powerhouse of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Transformers), but it also stars Orlando Jones, who I loved on Mad TV.
William Shatner has earned the right to say whatever he wants. The man was the original Captain Kirk, and he’s still going strong at 82. Now he wants to kiss and make up with JJ Abrams after allegedly saying some caustic comments about the new model Star Trek.
In a recent interview, Roberto Orci, one of the screenwriters of the 2009 Star Trek, as well as Star Trek Into Darkness, had said it was inevitable that Star Trek would one day come back to television. Apparently he knew more than he was telling, because there’s now reports he’s indeed working on a Trek series.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released on May 2, 2014, but there’s already plans for the third installment of the new model Spidey, along with the same writing team that created the second installment.
As we all know, when Star Trek was first on TV from 1966 to 1968, it had a tough time staying on the air. There was even a protest to keep it on the air. But of course the cult of Trek has gone on and on since its initial run, and it should continue to go on for God knows how long.
Film has been officially over and done with for a while now, and for cinema fans everywhere, this is really a damn shame. There have been tremendous strides being made with digital, and it looks fine in most movies, but to many cinema fans it will never be as good as celluloid.
A British has inventor has unveiled the ultimate Star Trek gadget - a £650 (approximately $1,000) handheld scanner that could be used to copy almost any item.The Fuel3D scanner, originally developed at Oxford University, can capture everything from a flower’s petals to the contours of human skin.The Fuel3D ...
We at TGD love Bill Shatner. Whether he’s hilariously interpreting a song like Rocket Man, leading the Enterprise, fighting the Gorn, performing spoken word on Broadway, or battling an army of tarantulas in the ‘70’s B movie classic Kingdom of the Spiders, it’s amazing that Bill’s still around at 82 and he's showing no signs of slowing down.
It used to be if you liked geek stuff, you didn’t have much of a shot at meeting women with similar interests. Back in the day, chicks just didn’t dig stuff like video games, Lord of the Rings, horror movies, Transformers, etc. We geeks just knew this was the way it was, and we weren’t going to give up our love of Star Trek and Dungeons and Dragons to conform and fit in (and hopefully get a date).
We try not to pay attention to rumors here at TG, there’s a lot of them out there, and they’re usually nonsense. But in the age of the internet, it is indeed amazing how fast a rumor can get out there and be assumed as fact.
JJ Abrams, who we all know as the current mastermind behind Star Trek and Lost, recently mentioned to Howard Stern that he has a 3D printer in his office, and considering you can practically make anything short of a real human being with a 3D printer, it seems like it would be really cool to have one.
A team of scientists has managed to create a protocol which can carry out 7.8 million MPI tasks on 1,966,080 cores of the Sequoia Blue Gene/Q supercomputer system.
Talk about set for stun. It’s amazing to see what sci-fi memorabilia goes for these days, but if you’re lucky enough to have the kind of money to buy it, you can take home your own little piece of Star Wars or Star Trek.
One of my all-time favorite science fiction series is Star Trek The Next Generation. And to be honest, I've always preferred the episodes where the holodeck played a major role in the storyline.
When it was announced that JJ Abrams will be directing the next Star Wars movie, many wondered if Abrams could handle both SW and Star Trek. Would the decision hold Trek back for years? And who could take over if Abrams absconded?
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman have worked together on a number of high-profile sci-fi projects, including Fringe, Star Trek, Enders Game and even Cowboys and Aliens.
The new Star Trek trailer showcases just how epic a Star Trek story can be - if it has the proper budget and talent.
