Report: Original Robocop actor, Peter Weller, joins the cast of “Star Trek” sequel…

The casting for JJ Abrams, “Star Trek” sequel just got even more interesting! First Benicio Del Torro and actress, Alice Eve are both in talks of starring. Here’s the next surprising casting. I’m sure you’ve all seen the Paul Verhoeven epic sci-fi action flick, “Robocop”, starring Peter Weller. Well Peter just got casted for an un-named role in JJ’s “Star Trek” sequel. They don’t even say whether he’s playing a villain or a hero.

More on the story, here.

Nice! I loved the first, Robocop, movie. Just so you know, Peter has never retired from acting, he’s still working after all this time. He’s just been doing other movies and TV shows over the years. I remember seeing Peter in a role for “Dexter – Season 5”, he was a character named, Stan Liddy.

As for what character that Peter could be playing in “Star Trek”, my guess is that it could be, John Frederick Paxton, in which he played for in two episodes of the TV show, “Star Trek: Enterprise”.


Report: JJ Abrams “Star Trek” sequel confirmed for May 17th, 2013 release date…

Today, on the Star Trek website, just confirmed the release date for JJ Abrams, ‘Star Trek” sequel. The film will be hitting theaters on May 17th, 2013.

Plot details are being kept under wraps for now but JJ Abrams is set to return to direct and actor, Benicio Del Toro, is in talks to play the films leading villain.

We don’t know who Benicio will be playing yet, but notice that Benicio’s skin is a little dark, it look like he maybe playing a Klingon character. He also might be playing a young, Khan.

I thought the first Star Trek movie was real good and hopefully the next film will be just as good. I hope William Shatner will get a cameo this time, also.


Report: Steven Spielberg agreed with the public that “Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” had problems but blames Lucas…

“Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, the fourth installment to the Indy series has gotten negative feedback ever since it came out, and Steven Spielberg finally responds to the negative critics. He agreed with the public that Indy IV sucked, but he puts the blame on George Lucas for the bad movie.

Another thing that people’s been complaining about is the controversial Fridge scene in which Indy hides in to protect himself from an atomic bomb. Steven says he doesn’t blame Lucas for that scene, he blames himself.

Read the full story, here.

I’m one of the very few that actually loved Indy IV, I just didn’t like Shia Labeouf starring in it. I think it was pretty much him that ruined the movie. Without Shia, the movie would have been fine.

When they do Indy V, hopefully they get rid of Shia, and I’m hoping they make Indy V a more serious movie next time around, and not a popcorn flick. I think the next Indy movie should be more like, “Raiders”. Will they do the sci-fi thing again with Indy V? I don’t think they should do it again.

I think it would be kind of cool if they do a script on the Ark of Covenant, after all, the Ark did make a brief cameo in Indy IV. They better make Indy V soon, because Harrison is getting older.



Cool Video: Behind the scenes video proves Tom Cruise building stunt is real…

A behind the scenes video of “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” surfaces the web, showing the scene where Tom Cruise is doing the action scene on a tall building in, Dubai.

It proves the scene was done for real. No green screens, no special effects and no stunt doubles. That’s all Tom. He looks very confident doing that too.

No matter what you think of Tom, love him or hate him, what he did here is pretty ballsy. It gave me a little more respect for him after this. I can’t wait to see the movie, I’m definitely seeing it in theater.

See the video here, at AICN.


Report: JJ Abrams says he’s game for directing “Star Trek” sequel!!!

For a while now, JJ Abrams wasn’t sure if he will direct the “Star Trek” sequel. Now that he’s done with “Super 8”, he signed on to direct “Star Trek 2”. He’s working with the same writers from the first “Star Trek” movie, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof. I’m sure the same cast from the first movie will return too.

Deadline, reports.

I thought the first Star Trek movie with JJ was very good. Lets hope they do a good job with the second movie too. Will JJ finally agree that William Shatner should star in it this time? Hopefully!!! Captain Kirk died in “Generations”, but it’s science fiction. There are always ways to bring the original Capt. Kirk with Shatner back.

It be kind of cool if Patrick Stewart as Cpt. Picard can make a return too.


Report: “Star Trek – The Next Generation” is now streamable on Netflix…

Announced today, all 7 seasons of “Star Trek – The Next Generation” are now streamable for Netflix along with “Voyager” and “Enterprise”. I’m such a huge Star Trek “TNG” fan and I’m looking forward to watching this show all over again.

I’m glad Paramount let Netflix stream Star Trek series, because Star Trek still deserves to get known. Star Trek isn’t for everyone, but I suggest people to try and get into it. I’m a big Trekkie, and quite proud of it too. Have been a Trekkie ever since I was a child.

Thanks to Paramount and Netflix for this. I’m excited!


Cool Video: “Star Trek” video game trailer is now online!!!

Star Trek the Videogame trailer has surfaced the web today, brought to you by IGN. As expected, the game looks impressive. Yes, the trailer does show game play footage from the game.

Hopefully, it’ll be a long game and won’t be too easy to play. I hate those kind of games when you get excited for something, the game turned out to be too short and too easy to finish.


Report: New “Star Trek” video game is on the way!!!

Last year, Cryptic Studios released a Star Trek game, called, “Star Trek Online”. Which is an online multi-player game for the PC only. Just announced earlier this week, Paramount announced that there will be a new “Star Trek” video game that will be available for the PS3, Xbox, and PC. The new “Star Trek” game will be adapted from JJ Abrams 2009’s “Star Trek” movie. The new game will continue the adventure from that film, and you’ll get to play either Spock or Kirk. The new “Star Trek” game will be released sometime next year in 2012.

More on it, here.

As a huge Star Trek fan, I’m very excited for this, so I’ll definitely be getting it. I wonder if they’re going to have Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine voice for Spock and Kirk?

I’m sure it’ll be a nice game.


Cool Video: New “Super 8” trailer with more footage from the film hits the web!

The JJ Abrams directed, Steven Spielberg produced sci-fi movie, “Super 8” have just hit the web this morning. It surfaced on twitter. The trailer is still keeping the monster or alien mysterious as you can see here.

The movie looks very cool. I’m happy for Kyle Chandler that he’ll get the recognition he deserves. I’m there in theaters when it comes out, June 10th. Hope it’s a good movie.


Report: Paramount Pictures cuts Tom Cruise’s upfront pay for “MI: 4″…

Due to the box office failure for “Knight and Day”, that gave Paramount Pictures no choice but to cut Tom Cruise’s upfront pay for the upcoming, “Mission Impossible 4”. That means Tom will not be getting paid anything before the movie starts filming. He will have to wait to get paid after the movie is done and released, he’ll get his share of the investment after.

Collider reports:


I’m pretty sure Tom is not worried about not getting paid before the movie. Tom is loaded enough to not care about money. “MI: 4” will be a smash hit no matter what happens. So Tom will get plenty of cash when the movie is released. Tom always said he’s into acting ’cause he loves the movies, he’s always said he wasn’t in it for the money.

I have no interest in seeing “Knight and Day” but “MI: 4” is kind of exciting. I hope they make “MI: 4” a great one. Not much of a Mission Impossible fan, but if they make “MI: 4” an action packed ride, I might go to the theaters for this one.

I thought Tom’s best performance in his career was in the Bryan Singer Nazi film, “Valkyrie”, Tom’s acting was phenomenal in that film. He needs to stop doing silly films like “Knight and Day” and go back to do serious stuff like “Valkyrie”. I like Tom in action films too.
