The third entry in the J.J. Abrams rebooted sci-fi franchise is pegged to hit cinemas in 2016 – which also happens to be Star Trek’s big 50th anniversary…. so no pressure at all!
Just yesterday, out and about on the promotional campaign for his filmmaking docuseries ‘The Chair,’ Star Trek star Zachary Quinto was asked about whether the upcoming ‘Star Trek 3′ will feel like the end of a trilogy. “I think the five-year mission will be a part of this next film in some way,” Quinto replied. “We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic sci-fi series in entertainment history, so it’s inherently an ongoing story. But I do think that we’ll feel some sense of evolution in these characters that’s been building through the first few films.”
“The A-Holes take to the skies.” Writer-director James Gunn, one to regularly engage with his fans on social media, has posted this latest still from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ The stellar cast for the hugely anticipated Marvel movie includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Batista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as Groot, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Benicio del Toro as The Collector, John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, Glenn Close as Nova Prime and if recent reports are true, Josh Brolin as Thanos. Ophelia Lovibond, Gregg Henry, Marama Corlett, Emmett J. Scanlan and Enzo Cilenti co-star. The film arrives in cinemas in the UK and Ireland on July 31st before opening in the US on August 1st.
According to a new report, Rose Leslie is joining the Vin Diesel-starring, ‘The Last Witch Hunter.’ The supernatural action flick sees a semi-immortal witch hunter (Diesel) wandering the streets of modern New York City forced to partner with his natural enemy, a female witch (Leslie). The two must stop a villainous witch queen from obtaining a relic and unleashing plague upon humanity.
To be directed by Breck Eisner (The Crazies), ‘The Last Witch Hunter’ is set to start filming in August in Pittsburgh. Rose Leslie is a Scottish actress who is best known for portraying Ygritte in ‘Game of Thrones’ and Gwen Dawson in ‘Downton Abbey.’ She will next be seen alongside Harry Treadaway in the horror ‘Honeymoon,’ and she just finished shooting the indie ‘Sticky Notes,’ with Ray Liotta and Gina Rodriguez.
Focus Features has debuted this unique new trailer for ‘Wish I Was Here,’ actor-director-writer Zach Braff’s Kickstarter-funded follow-up to his 2004 directorial debut ‘Garden State.’ Braff’s comedy-drama centers on a 30-something actor coming to terms with his life in the face of his father’s illness and his life’s dreams unfulfilled. Co-starring the likes of Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Ashley Greene, Joey King, Pierce Gagnon, Michael Weston, Josh Gad, Jim Parsons, Donald Faison and the late James Avery, ‘Wish I Was Here’ opens on July 18th in the US and September 19th in the UK.
Universal Pictures has set loose this new extended clip from Luc Besson’s action-thriller, ‘Lucy.’ Scarlett Johansson stars as the title character, a young woman who is forced to become a drug mule and is subsequently transformed into an ass-kicking machine when a highly-specialized drug enters her system. As Lucy races against the clock to survive, her new abilities allow her to see into the future, move objects with her mind and disregard pain and other emotions.

EOne has unveiled this new poster for ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness,’ the upcoming comedy/drama based on François Lelord’s novel of the same name.

In the film, Simon Pegg plays Hector, an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier. He’s going nowhere.

More importantly, if it exists for Hector. And so begins a colorful, exotic, dangerous and hysterical journey.
