Whatever else might be true of the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie, it’s also true that the filmmakers have put as much of the budget on the screen as humanly possible. And as you can tell when you watch the film’s opening scene—available here and now for your viewing pleasure—it has paid off, at least in in the…
Did you see this year’s Kubo and the Two Strings? How about the other films made by stop-motion animation company Laika, like Coraline, Paranorman, and Boxtrolls? Did you like them? If the answers are “yes,” get excited. The head of that company, Travis Knight, is making a Transformers movie.
Like most people, she’s not at all too happy at the prospect of waking up. Unlike most people, though, it’s because she’s freaking the hell out at the thought of being in an entirely different body than her own.
CBS and Paramount might not think it’s worth their time to make an HD version of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but the folks behind the DS9 documentary are determined to present the show at its best. They’re working on getting the negatives for some of the show’s best scenes, so they can do the job themselves.
Our latest look at the next Transformers film features very little of the historical elements we’ve seen before. Instead, it’s all about the future... and even beyond Autobots fighting Autobots, it’s a very bleak future for everyone involved.
The Ghost in the Shell producer Ari Arad has acknowledged that some “people online” are upset that Scarlett Johansson is playing a protagonist who was originally Asian, but that the fans he’s friends with were okay with it so it probably won’t matter.
Paramount, like every other studio in existence, wants more than franchises. It wants universes, which allow them to make stories with a popular name attached but that don’t need to be tied to continuity and stars. Paramount’s betting on Transformers.
At the start of Star Trek Beyond, it’s clear that Kirk is tired of being on the Enterprise. In this deleted scene, the crew of the Enterprise seems to be tired of him, too.
Fifty years is an enormous milestone, especially when you’re talking about the relatively short history of television shows. So why on Earth and Vulcan did CBS and Paramount fail to capitalize on Star Trek’s 50th anniversary?
Last week, Entertainment Weekly published a feature where Henry Winkler and William Shatner promoted a new project while apologizing for an old, bad one. Shatner offers his regrets for the infamous Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, while passive-aggressively blaming Paramount anyway. Fun!
This is weird. A new commercial for Star Trek Beyond, which is available on Paramount’s YouTube page, completely spoils the end of the movie. And not in the broad sense of showing our heroes win, but in the specific sense of giving away something that’s supposed to be a big twist.
One day, one of the new Star Trek films will be more than the sum of its parts—the parts being a nearly perfect cast. But until then we have Star Trek Beyond, a movie that is half-entertaining and half-frustrating.
CBS has finally announced an official name for the alternate timeline that started with 2009's Star Trek. Given that most of the unofficial ones weren’t particularly complimentary, it’s weird it took them this long to choose one.
Good news: Paramount and CBS’ have created a way to ensure a fan film won’t get sued. Bad news: The way they’ve done that is by issuing some seriously confusing and oppressive rules about what fans can and can’t do.
Well. Now we might know why, despite director J.J. Abrams recently claiming that we’d hear about a settlement, CBS and Paramount’s lawsuit against Axanar Productions is still going on.
Star Trek’s 50th birthday is this year, and the celebration has begun—there’s the new TV show on the way, cool merchandise, and a new movie. But this downright gorgeous collection might be the greatest thing about the year so far.
Despite earlier rumors to the contrary, another rumor surfaced last week which claimed that there was still some uncertainty over which universe the new Star Trek series would be set in, that of the original series, Next Generation, DS9 and the like, or the new universe of the recent movies? But we have a better…
The last time we heard about the Ghost in the Shell movie, it was not great news—the one-two punch of immense backlash at the first official image of Scarlett Johannson as Motoko Kusanagi and a follow-up report alleging the film attempted to digitally alter white actors to appear Asian left fans furious. This latest…
Congratulations to Paramount, which is finally in court on a $27 million lawsuit for failing to actually place a product from a product placement deal. Yeah. On one side is Paramount, the studio behind the Transformers franchise, and on the other side is a Chinese business who paid them to put even more logos in the…
You hear that sound? It’s the sound of Paramount executives slowly digging themselves further into a big, big hole.
