Bryan Cranston to feature in next film??

An early – and as yet unverified – report from Film Divider suggests that the evil shoes of Star Trek 3’s villain have been filled. Breaking Bad alum Bryan Cranston has been linked to the space-set threequel, for a role that’s apparently “Bryan Cranston-like, to the point that Cranston himself has had words with the studio about taking the role.” It certainly makes sense that he’d audition for a part that uses...

Scotty ‘Transporter’ created

Don’t you wish you could beat the rush hour traffic or be on time for meetings by merely beaming up from one place to another? Wouldn’t it be so much more convenient to order items online and receive them in one go?

The Self-Sustaining Star Trek -By Rick Austin @EvolvedRick

First JJ Abrams stepped down as director of the next Star Trek film, then Roberto Orci left. I don’t know if Orci’s departure was a decision made on friendly terms, but from his statements online, and the announcement that he isn’t writing the script either, it doesn’t look like it. I appreciate what he’s helped to bring to the films, just as I did with JJ Abrams, although I’m still not sure if the...
