StarTrek.com is upon us. The website, which went live this morning, handles all things Starfleet and is meant to be the official online destination for Trekkies everywhere. It covers all incarnations of the venerable Roddenberry franchise, including the new movie, so even if you are among the many for whom the initials TOS mean nothing, there’s still something here for you.Set your faces to stunned because the new, all-encompassing re-launch of
In a statement on the site, the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy, confesses he finds the new website entirely logical, welcoming visitors, saying, “To those of you who have been with us for so long, my sincere thanks for your interest. For those of you who are new to Star Trek, who are discovering it through the recent movie and are about to explore the franchise in its infinite diversity… welcome. Come aboard and enjoy.”
It’s not the flashiest-looking site, but that totally works for me. I was always more into the slight cheesiness of green body paint and William Shatner’s judo chops than the shiny surfaces and lens flares of the reboot. Plus, the databases are almost mind-meldingly comprehensive. But what do you think, PopWatchers? Like the new site? Ready to surf long and prosper?
Nicolas Cage could return in 'Ghost Rider' sequel, William Shatner to direct documentary about himself
- Though there’s hardly a burning (heh) desire for it, a Ghost Rider sequel possibly starring Nicolas Cage is in the works. [Variety]
- William Shatner will direct The Captains, a documentary about his rise to fame as Captain Kirk on Star Trek. I’d write a joke, but really, it’s all there, folks. [Reuters]
- Paramount is bending the release date of The Last Airbender, moving it to July 1. [Variety]
- Russell Crowe will star as Robert McCall in an adaptation of the 1980s TV series The Equalizer. As long as he stays away from cliffs. [The Los Angeles Times]
- Chace Crawford is set to star in indie Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding. That could pretty much be a caption to this picture, right? [THR]
- Patrick Dempsey will star in the Lasse Hallstrom-directed Tom’s Dad, a coming-of-age film about a 1960s-era vaudevillian performer who “struggles to keep up with changing comedy styles.” [THR]
- Style has increased its season two episode order of Jerseylicious from 10 to 20 episodes. [THR]
- Some frakkin’ good news: Battlestar Galactica‘s Michael Hogan has joined the cast of Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood. [The Wrap]
- Smallville writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will pen Monster High, a musical based on the line of Mattel dolls. The movie will “feature the spawn of famous monsters including Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman undergoing the trials and tribulations of high school.” I would say that I didn’t know monsters attended high school, but then again, I was a 14-year-old girl once. [THR]
As EW reported last night, Star Trek‘s Captain Kirk, Chris Pine, is in early negotiations to fill in for Bradley Cooper in the spy buddy comedy This Means War. Holy final frontier, does this news make me happy! Because, as we saw in that whole vaccine scene in Star Trek, the dude is funny. And it’s rare that we get funny and incredibly gorgeous in one nice little package in Hollywood. (Yes, Paul Rudd, you still belong to that club.) Honestly, I see Pine’s comedy career as a natural progression. Now, if he’d record a spoken-word cover of “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds,” I’d be even happier.
Who else wants to give Pine a hand for tackling a starring role in a comedy? And who knew he looked so much like Lee DeWyze in high school? (Random Internet surfing alert!)
I’ve got to hand it to Zoe Saldana: The girl is clearly making up for her Oscar dress debacle with a parade of smart choices on the red carpet recently, including this edgy suede Balmain number she wore to last night’s premiere of The Losers (left).
Taking a step back, Saldana has experienced an interesting trajectory in the world of red carpet fashion. Last spring she came up from what seemed like out of nowhere to wow us with consistently beautiful pieces while promoting Star Trek. Thanks to that summer blockbuster, her name got more bold-faced by the second and pretty soon she was appearing on red carpets left and right, showing off her style acumen. READ FULL STORY
That’s right: The man formerly known as Spock intends to step down from his acting career after finishing his arc as Dr. William Bell on Fringe. That means no more Bell, and no more Spock — even when it comes to Star Trek‘s 2012 sequel. Says Nimoy to the Toronto Sun: “I want to get off the stage. Also, I don’t think it would be fair to [Star Trek's 2009 Spock] Zachary Quinto…He’s a terrific actor, he looks the part, and it’s time to give him some space.” (Ha. Space. Was the pun intended? I’d like think so.)
And get this: He might even retire from sci-fi conventions. Gah! I don’t know, PopWatchers. I loved Zachary Quinto in last year’s film, but are we ready for Leonard Nimoy to disappear from our lives like a red shirt? Do you think he’ll at least perform a follow-up to “Ballad of Bilbo Baggins” for us?
Either way, live long and prosper, my friend. Because I’m sure you haven’t heard that enough.
I predicted the former Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation would return to the show as Sheldon Cooper’s official Worst Enemy. I had no idea, however, that Evil Wil Wheaton would be this evil, widening his path of destruction to include not just Sheldon, but Penny and Leonard’s fragile romance as well.When Wil Wheaton first appeared on The Big Bang Theory last fall as an odiously underhanded version of himself,
Yes, it’s official: Penny and Leonard’s season-long courtship is seriously on the rocks. After Penny managed to pull off an unambiguous, post-coital reference to The Empire Strikes Back (just in time for its 30th anniversary, too!), Leonard was moved to attempt an unambiguous, post-coital declaration of love for her, i.e. “I love you.” Penny’s response: “Oh. Thank you.” Not good. READ FULL STORY
