Actor Anton Yelchin, best known for his role as Chekov in ‘Star Trek‘ and Zack ‘Alpha Dog,’ died early Sunday morning when he was pinned by his own car in his own driveway. He was supposed to meet his friends hours earlier for a rehearsal, and when the didn’t hear from him they went to his home and found him pinned between his car and his mailbox, attached to the driveway security gate. No statement has been released as to how this happened exactly, but foul play has been ruled out.

Yelchin was an only child and his Russian parents were professional figure skaters that moved to the U.S. when he was just a baby. Such a tragic and sad story – he was only 27 years old.

Watch a tribute of the talented actor’s work below. Rest in Peace, Anton.

During their upfronts (I’ll post trailers for new shows later), CBS shared the first promotional video for their highly-anticipated Star Trek reboot. Don’t hold your breath for your favorite characters from the past to return, the teaser clip promises “new adventure, new crews, new villains, new heroes.”

“The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.” – CBS

The upcoming series comes from former Deep Space Nine writer Bryan Fuller. No cast announcements have been made yet, though CBS president Les Moonves coyly played with the audience. “You didn’t think we were going to show you the cast, did you?,” adding, “It’s too early for that.” The reboot will air sometime in early 2017. Check out the teaser clip below.

Star Trek Beyond Releases First Teaser Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

After directing the first two Star Trek reboots, J.J. Abrams steps down from the directing chair. He still, however, stays on as producer. Stepping into his place is Fast and Furious maestro, Justin Lin. Based on the first piece of footage, it appears the Lin era will be more comedic in tone. Smart move considering the lackluster reviews of Star Trek Into Darkness.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and John Cho all return to reprise their respective Trekkie role. Joining the franchise as this instalment’s villain is Idris Elba.

Check out the first teaser clip below which is set to the Beastie Boys 1994 hit, “Sabotage.” In addition to having a more lighthearted vibe, it seems Lin has amped up the action as well. Buckle up because the new film is going full warp speed ahead.

Star Trek Beyond beams into theaters on July 22, 2016. Check out the trailer below.

Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing Spock in Star Trek for which he received three Emmy nominations, has passed away at the age of 83 at his Bel Air home in Los Angeles. His wife Susan Bay Nimoy confirmed the sad news.

Nimoy revealed last year that he was suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease caused by smoking. Though he had given up the habit for three decades, it was years of smoking prior that is to blame.

Fittingly in his final tweet before his death, Leonard said his character’s signature saying. “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” LLAP is an acronym for ‘live long and prosper.’

Movie Review: Star Trek Into Darkness

In: Movies, Tommy D

We’ve finally arrived to the release date of one of the most anticipated movies of the year. It is the sequel to the mega blockbuster Star Trek a few ago, this one titled Star Trek: Into Darkness.

I didn’t know much of this movie before I stepped into the theater and I think that was the point. That seems to be happening a lot with the big blockbusters this year. Iron Man 3 was vague, as is Man of Steel, Star Trek was no different. The only thing you knew from the previews is that this movie looked epic, and it absolutely was.

Chris Pine Looks Sharp For Esquire UK

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

If you read Homorazzi regularly, you might notice articles about Chris Pine are few and far between. Personally, I don’t get the appeal and that’s why he landed on my “5 Guys Everyone Finds Smokin’ Hot… BUT Me” post. With that said, I do realize plenty of our readers do love him so… here you go. Enjoy.

Another reason I’m publishing this post is because of the clothes. I love a few of the pieces he’s wearing in Esquire UK’s May 2013 issue. Photographer Yu Tsai did an astounding job with the shoot. I have to admit that the 32-year-old Star Trek Into Darkness actor looks not half bad with the scruff and styling. Check out his editorial and a few quotes from the publication below.

On Fan Reactions

“When I went to Japan for Star Trek, the fans were at the airport waiting. But they didn’t scream until Benedict [Cumberbatch] got off the plane. And I was like, f**k man: what about me?”

Attention all Trekkies and blooper-lovers: The Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 2 Blu-Ray has just been released, and included in its special features is a brand-new gag reel that has never been released before and it’s absolutely hilarious.

With Whoopi Goldberg (who plays Guinan) forgetting her lines, Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) in some sexy poses, Worf (Michael Dorn) continuously messing up his lines, and countless scenes where the cast can’t help but burst into laughter.

The new Blu-Ray also includes brand-new documentaries featuring all new cast and crew interviews, original episodic promos, TNG 25th Anniversary Cast Reunion, deleted scenes, and more. Watch the Season 2 outtakes below. I’ve also included the Season 1 gag reel, although it’s not in HD like Season 2 is.
