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.
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.
“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.
What a great way to kick off the week! Earlier this month, the poster and first teaser trailer for Star Trek: Into The Darkness was revealed. Today, the first full trailer has just been released and the movie looks epic! The intensity and music in the trailer reminds me of the newly released Zach Snyder trailer for Man of Steel. So many good movies in 2013!!
In case you don’t already know, here’s the premise of this upcoming new J.J. Abrams film: “When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated everything the fleet stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a “one man weapon of mass destruction.”
In this trailer, we here Pike (Bruce Greenwood) tell Kirk, “There’s greatness in you, but not an ounce of humility. But there’s going to come a moment when you’re wrong about that. And you’re going to get yourself, and everyone under your command, killed.” The film stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, and Zoe Saldana and hits theatres May 17, 2013. Enjoy the first full length trailer below.
Check out the teaser poster for The Dark Knight Rises. Oops, I meant to say Star Trek Into Darkness. In my defense, the first official poster for the Star Trek sequel looks awfully familiar to the crumbling city landscape in the first creative for the Batman film.
Whatever happened to the Star Trek mantra of going where no man has gone before. Apparently, that excludes Christopher Nolan films ;) Too bad, the studio didn’t release an awesome motion poster like the one for Catching Fire. That would’ve been intergalactic.
Paramount tweeted the first official image for the highly-anticipated flick today. It follows J.J. Abrams’s recent reveal of the film’s plot. The next step in the film’s initial marketing push is debuting the movie trailer during screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I can’t wait.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew. – Abrams
This article is for all my trekkie homos out there and those pop culture queens who love a good piece of trivia. While I am not a full fledged trekkie, I have enjoyed myself a fair share of seasons from Star Trek: The Next Generation and I think I’ve seen every episode of Voyager. While it wasn’t their best work, I did watch Deep Space Nine with my dad when it was on the air. So, when Patrick saw this and shared it with me, I couldn’t help but share it with you.
The Star Trek franchise has spanned multiple decades and generations with various takes on the original, classic tale imagined by Gene Roddenberry. The latest adaption has been the film version created by J.J. Abrams with its initial movie grossing over $380 million at the box office and now, a sequel on the way.
While there have been many celebrities who worked on full seasons of Star Trek (like Whoopi Goldberg and Patrick Stewart), there are a few stars who you may not know had a role or two on the sci-fi cult hit. Thanks to a user at IMGUR, we can check out a few of those celebrities who made their appearance. Some of the side-by-side-comparisons may shock you. Check out the list below.
Chris Pine is Unstoppable, ever since his breakout role in Star Trek last year. Well, these pictures may cause something to Beam Up, that’s for sure.
He’s got the movie, Unstoppable coming out in November and he’s actually here in Vancouver filming This Means War with Reese Witherspoon and Inception‘s Tom Hardy. He describes the movie, “It’s a rom-actsh-com. A romantic action comedy. Or maybe it’s com-actsh-rom? Executives probably use these terms all the time. ‘We need more com-actsh-roms!’ It sounds like a Hare Krishna temple.”
Who wants to climb his Pine tree?
Today the Producers Guild of America unveiled their top ten movies of the year. Just like the Academy Awards, they doubled their normal field of five nominations to ten. The Producers Guild Nominations are usually one of the most accurate indicators of what the Academy will honor in a few months.
While art house independent flicks normally dominate the PGA nominations, this year, science fiction blockbusters scored big with the guild. Star Trek, Avatar and District 9 took three of the ten spots. If the Oscar choices follow the same train of thought, the producers of the Oscar telecast should be very happy. Typically when the Academy honors popular blockbusters, the show gains mass appeal and score bigger ratings.
Generally TV viewership as a whole is declining and the Oscar show isn’t immune to this trend. The telecast is usually able to buck the trend when huge hits are in the running. 12 years ago when “Titanic” swept the ceremony, The Oscars had their biggest audience ever. With Avatar breaking box office records worldwide, expect James Cameron to prove he really is “the king of the world”.
By increasing the field to ten nominations, well reviewed blockbusters have a better shot of securing one of the coveted nominations. While the PGA nominations do a great job of predictions, they are not always on the money. Last year, “The Dark Knight”, 2008′s biggest commercial hit, earned a nomination from the PGA but was snubbed by the Academy.
