UPDATE: Roberto Orci Leaves Star Trek 3

Read on to learn who might replace Roberto Orci as director of Star Trek 3.


Regardless if you're a long-time Trekker (that's what we call ourselves) or someone who just enjoyed Director JJ Abrams' rebooted series, Star Trek has proven to be a money-making hit as well as a critical success. Perhaps the main reason for that was Abrams himself, who stood the frankly tired franchise on its ear by beaming its characters into an alternate timeline. Add to that a rich history of characters, including the conflicted Vulcan Mr. Spock and the bold adventurer Captain James T. Kirk, and you had a winning formula for success.

But with Abrams now attached to Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and having released a pretty awesome teaser trailer the week of Thanksgiving - it's clear that his somoene needed to pick up the car keys to drive Star Trek forward. That person was set to be Writer Roberto Orci, best known for his screenwriting work with former partner Alex Kurtzman. Orci was to make his directorial debut with the movie.

But, life has a funny way of taking things from you, and with the announcement on Friday that Orci was leaving the helmer chair, it's thrown this up-and-coming franchise into a bit of tailspin.

The reason? Filming was set to begin in Spring 2015, which doesn't give Paramount Studios a lot of time to find a replacement. Compounding the problem is the reality that the rollercoaster has pretty much left the building, and anyone they get needs to strap in and simply hold on. So who would be so crazy to take on something which is in many ways done? How about someone without a job.

Deadline is reporting that former Ant-Man Director Edgar Wright is on the shortlist. As you might remember, Wright departed the Marvel movie just months before filming was to begin, giving Marvel a surprising black eye. His availability, while unfortunate due to his long-time love affair with Ant-Man, could be to Trek's benefit. Wright has demonstrated that he gets characters, as evidenced in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but he's also directed fairly big action pieces in Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World's End. Don't get us wrong: none of those hold a candle to the effects work in Trek, but his ability to succeed at both parts is a necessary skill for a series of this importance.

As for Orci, he will still remain involved with Trek 3 as a Producer, THR has confirmed. Whether he will come out to explain his departure any time soon is your guess, but Wright's possible signing interest or worry you?

FROM BODYBUILDING TO BILLION DOLLAR BOX OFFICE SEE THE FILM THAT STARTED IT ALL PUMPING IRON. NOW ON DIGITAL HD WITH RARELY SEEN CONTENT AND INTERVIEWS

Witness the rise of international film star and former Mr. Olympian Arnold Schwarzenegger in Pumping Iron, the critically-acclaimed 1977 documentary that put the world of bodybuilding on the map, and bench pressed Arnold’s career from muscles into movies. Pumping Iron focuses on the intense competition between Schwarzenegger and newcomer Lou Ferrigno, the biggest threat to Arnold’s goal of becoming Mr. Olympia.

Now available on Digital HD for the first time, fans of Pumping Iron will be introduced to content never-before-released in the US, including “Still Pumping,” featuring newly recorded interviews with ‘The Austrian Oak,’ who talks about what it takes to succeed — both mentally and physically — in the highly competitive world of professional bodybuilding. Also featured is “The Hard Science of Bodybuilding,” with tips from Schwarzenegger and top bodybuilders on how to sculpt your perfect body.

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this documentary about the 100 days leading up to the 1975 Mr. Olympia contest. Five-time former champion Schwarzenegger is pitted against shy newcomer Lou Ferrigno (TV's "The Incredible Hulk") in a showdown that is as mental as it is physical. With psychological warfare, intense determination, trash-talking, and the easy charm that would later catapult Schwarzenegger to stardom, PUMPING IRON changed the world of bodybuilding forever and launched both men's careers.

Special Features:
· Still Pumping: Success in bodybuilding is a mental challenge as well as physical. In these newly recorded interviews, Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about the will power and focus you need to become a champion, and the mental attitude that has shaped his career.

· The Hard Science of Bodybuilding: Arnold Schwarzenegger and top bodybuilders give insights into the sport of bodybuilding and tips for building the body of your dreams.

New Clip From "JANE" Following A Young @Janefonda

Here is a special clip from the documentary JANE. The film features a young Jane Fonda as she rehearses for her early starring role on Broadway in 1962. The documentary is available now at SundanceNow Doc Club - a subscription based streaming service.



JANE, directed by Drew Associates, captures a rare and oft forgotten piece of film and theater history. A young Jane Fonda prepares for her tumultuous starring role on Broadway in "The Fun Couple." The Drew Associates filmmakers track Fonda's every move during the production as she strives to legitimize herself as an actress and remove herself from the shadow of her father, Henry Fonda.

The film follows Jane through demanding rehearsals, testing the play for out-of-town audiences and, finally, opening night in New York. Though the show opens to devastating reviews, Jane's love of acting, her determination and her resilience shine through the biting criticism.

Benedict Cumberbatch To Play #DoctorStrange

Benedict Cumberbatch has entered the world of the mystic arts.

The actor will star in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange,” scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016. The film, directed by Scott Derrickson with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.”

Cumberbatch rose to international prominence with his critically acclaimed turn as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous creation in “Sherlock,” currently preparing its fourth season. The series’ most recent season earned Cumberbatch the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie in 2014, after winning the BAFTA/LA Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year in 2013.

Cumberbatch most recently starred in “The Imitation Game,” playing famed mathematician and logician Alan Turing, and will soon be seen in “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” as Smaug and the Necromancer. For the role of Smaug, Cumberbatch stepped into the world of motion capture to bring the dragon to life. He will next be seen in Scott Cooper’s film “Black Mass,” the story of Whitey Bulger coming to theaters next September, where he stars opposite Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton.

The star’s other credits include the Academy Award-winning “12 Years a Slave,” “War Horse,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “August: Osage County,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “The Fifth Estate,” and “Parade’s End.” Benedict will be returning to the stage this summer in Hamlet at the Barbican with Lyndsey Turner directing. His last stage performance in Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein opposite Jonny Lee Miller awarded him the Olivier.

With “Doctor Strange,” Cumberbatch is just the latest actor to join the bold Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, introducing new heroes and continuing the adventures of fan favorites across multiple films.

It's Chimichanga Time. Ryan Reynolds Confirms Deadpool Role

Though it would seem to be little more than a formality at this point, there was no official confirmation, when 20th Century Fox announced that the Deadpool film was actually happening, that Ryan Reynolds would return. He’s now busy making a deal for the film, and announced that less-than-cryptically via Twitter.


Deadline, meanwhile, reports that he’s in the middle of closing a deal for the film, which VFX expert-turned-director Tim Miller will wrangler together starting in March.



Despite his eventually silenced form in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the character best known as Wade Wilson, the Merc With A Mouth is normally found chattering away about everything, and even breaking the fourth wall as he goes about his missions. Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have written the script, and have said in the past that they intend to honor the character’s wisecracking, meta nature. The test footage that arrived online in the middle of the year certainly kept that spirit intact.

So now the near-indestructible hero should arrive properly on our screens in 2016. And intriguingly, the report mentions that this is a collaboration between Fox and Marvel Studios – so could we one day see Deadpool meeting some of his non Fox-owned Marvel pals?

Krysten Ritter To Play Jessica Jones In Marvel TV Series On Netflix

Some people get big announcements with glowing quotes. So we have to assume that, while she’ll probably end up with the role, Krysten Ritter is still in the final stages of sealing her deal to play Jessica Jones in the second of the Marvel TV series set to appear on Netflix.

Ritter, who was up against some strong competition for the role, has reportedly scored the gig according to Deadline, which goes on to mention that she has been auditioning with Mike Colter, one of the prime candidates to play Luke Cage. Jones and Cage have a history in the comics – they’ve been married and had a child together in one storyline – so it sounds like he’ll be introduced in her series before kicking off his own.

With Twilight scriptwriter Melissa Rosenberg (no stranger to telly after working on shows such as Dexter and The O.C.) overseeing the 13-episode first season, Jessica Jones will follow the young woman who, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after using her superpowers, decides to leave the life behind. But she doesn’t entirely forsake her past: she opens up a detective agency, which tackles cases for both ordinary people and superheroes.

Known for both comedy and drama – she was part of one of Breaking Bad’s more tragic storylines – Ritter seems like a good fit for the role. She, alongside Colter or whoever ends up as Cage, will eventually link up with Charlie Cox’s Daredevil and Marvel’s chosen Iron Fist for a miniseries called The Defenders, looking to tackle more street-level crime and villainy in New York.

Jonah Hill & Miles Teller To Star In Arms & The Dudes

Todd Phillips has turned to Jonah Hill to lead the charge of his next pic.

Sources tell Variety that the two-time Oscar nominee is in talks to star in Phillips’ “Arms and the Dudes” for Warner Bros.

Jesse Eisenberg and Shia LaBeouf had to depart due to delayed scheduling, and Warners worked fast to find replacements. The studio has offered the co-starring role to Miles Teller to replace LaBeouf.

Based on the Rolling Stone article by Guy Lawson, the story follows two unlikely arms dealers who got a $300 million contract to supply weapons for U.S. allies in Afghanistan. They soon found themselves in danger abroad and in trouble back home because they were completely out of their depth. Jesse Ehrman and Jon Gonda are overseeing for the studio.

The film is the first under the new production banner Phillips formed with his “Hangover” star Bradley Cooper. Cooper will produce along with Mark Gordon, who first acquired the article and brought it to Phillips. Bryan Zuriff is exec producing, with Jason Smilovic penning the script. Phillips and Stephen Chin also penned a version of the script.

Hill was present at the first table read but had to pass at the time because of scheduling. When the production was pushed, it gave the studio an opportunity to circle back to Hill to star.

Hill has had a busy year that included an Oscar nomination for his role in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” The actor was also seen in “22 Jump Street,” which grossed $320 million worldwide.

He is about to start filming the Coen brothers’ pic “Hail Caesar” and can be seen next in the New Regency pic “True Story” alongside James Franco. He is also attached to star in “The Ballad of Richard Jewell.”

TV Review: Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. ".Ye Who Enter Here"

TV Review: Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. ".Ye Who Enter Here"
By: Brandon Wolfe

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ continues to exhibit surprising sparks of life as its second season inches to the halfway point. The series is finally starting to work out some of its kinks. It’s now possible to get through a full episode without the risk of collapsing into a catatonic stupor. This is progress.

The series has found a measure of success in creating a more involving narrative thrust. Last year, it was more of a limp procedural until it began to focus on whatever it was that Bill Paxton’s character was up to. This season, however, the show has cast off the case-of-the-week format entirely and committed itself to an ongoing story thread with several moving parts, some of which are genuinely interesting. The show has also taken some agency with regard to embracing Marvel mythology. Where before ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ functioned as a bottom-feeder, making do with whatever table scraps the current Marvel film release would toss it, it’s now staking out its own claim on the Marvel universe, centering on a lost Kree city hidden on Earth, terrain the films haven’t really touched on apart from some cursory elements introduced in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ By taking on material that the films might not get to until the ‘Inhumans’ film all the way out in 2018, the series is actually emerging for the first time as a vital cog in the Marvel machine.

"...Ye Who Enter Here" presents a race against time with S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra each vying to locate the hidden city first, a race Team Coulson gets the upper hand in when they pinpoint the city’s location as lying beneath San Juan, Puerto Rico. The heroes also edge out the villains by getting to tertiary villain Raina first, as she is revealed to be a major component in unlocking the city’s secrets due to her ability to touch the deadly Obelisk without turning to stone, a quality she suggests she shares with Skye. With Raina in tow, the group heads to San Juan and the away team of Coulson, Bobbi, Mack and Simmons locate an entry point into the lost city, lowering Mack down into its depths while the rest of the team hovers above in a cloaked jet.



Matters are complicated when Hydra surrounds the jet and Ward boards it in midair under the threat of deadly force in order to take Raina and Skye into his possession. Meanwhile, down below, Mack is mysteriously infected by touching the surface of the city and attacks the rest of the team, necessitating Bobbi to knock him back down into the pit. Finally, though Ward leaves with the promise that he will not order the jet shot out of the sky, a promise he actually keeps, lead baddie Daniel Whitehall does not cotton to that decision and countermands Ward’s order. Dun-dun-dun!

Much of this stuff makes for decent television, which sounds like a low bar to clear, but is actually a remarkable feat for ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ which toiled for so long in deathly dull, go-nowhere nonsense. What’s further impressive is how much this notoriously chintzy show has stepped up its game visually. A fight between Skye and facially damaged May doppelganger Agent 33 continues the show’s increasing aptitude with fight choreography, and the show actually does a commendable job faking Puerto Rico. For a series that often looked like it was shot in someone’s garage last year, this is a big leap forward.


An area where the show continues to suffer is with its characters. For one, there’s just too damn many of them. Coulson’s roster now contains a whopping nine agents, an overcorrection to the frequent complaint last year that the team seemed too insubstantial (and that’s not even factoring in the stable of Patton Oswalt clones the show keeps popping out like Gremlins). There is also a surplus of villains, with Whitehall, Skye’s father, Ward, Raina and Agent 33 to keep tabs on, the first two on that list seeming to cancel each other out. The show could stand to do some major pruning right now. It may have already begun with the murky fate of Agent Mack, which seems to be a bad place to start as he’s actually one of the more likable members of the team. That Mack could be discarded as an expendable third wheel to the intolerable FitzSimmons will be a major miscalculation if it turns out to be the case.

The show also struggles with its character interactions. “…Ye Who Enter Here” is chock-full of dramatically tone-deaf one-on-ones between characters that simply don’t work. Raina and Skye discussing their potentially entwined fates just shines a light on how iffy Ruth Negga and Chloe Bennet are as actresses. And the show still expects some audience investment in the relationship between Fitz and Simmons, as evidenced by an interminable back-and-forth between the two, investment which I’m sure some pockets of the viewership have, though I couldn’t begin to fathom why. Generally, character-driven asides are the lifeblood of television shows, but this crop of characters is so thin that they should perhaps just stick to finding alien cities and not worry so much about trying to date each other.

But the big takeaway is that ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ is starting to become actually functional. In spite of the flaws still in place, this is huge. Let’s continue to chart its progress together.

What SPECTRE Means to Bond 24

Read on to learn why we're geeked out by Sony Pictures' announcement.

When news quietly arrived back in November 2013 of MGM's purchase of two cherished James Bond titles - SPECTRE and baddie Ernst Stavro Blofeld - we had a feeling it wasn't coincidence. Mired in the court system for literally 50 years, MGM and creator Kevin McClory finally agreed to end their differences, paving the way for SPECTRE's return in a future Bond film. The billion-dollar returns for Skyfall weren't an accident, and the franchise has enjoyed a renaissance unequaled with gritty action and graying loyalties. In many ways, the franchise was ready to take the next big step. Up until today, what we didn't realize was just how soon the terrorist organization and its leader would return.

When Sony Pictures' media event - held on the Pinewood Studios lot in England - released the name of Bond 24 as SPECTRE, it set off a shockwave of speculation: would Django Unchained Actor Christoph Waltz go on to portray Blofeld, or is that role being readied for someone else? Early reports pegged 12 Years a Slave Chiwetel Ejiofor to possibly play Blofeld, but he was not at the media event hosted by Director Sam Mendes. With everyone (and everything) else announced today - including iconic car maker Aston Martin was providing the wheels courtesy of the gorgeous DB10 - it's likely that Ejiofor is no longer connected with the project.

Why is the SPECTRE name so important? Simply put, it's the Klingons to Star Trek: you can fight the Romulans or even the Borg, but without the pirates of the galaxy, your universe is just not as exciting. SPECTRE is an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion, and is generally described as an apolitical organization bent on the destruction of all governments except their own. Ernst Stavro Blofeld - who's been portrayed several times by different actors and parodied in Mike Meyers' Austin Powers trilogy - employs a variety of assassins, all named as Number 1, 2, and so on. Each name was rotated to keep Bond and MI6 from discovering their true identities.

If some of this sounds familiar, you're correct. Current Bond Daniel Craig - who's generally regarded as the best Bond of all time - fought a shadowy organization in Quantum of Solace, who was planning to hijack water supplies and initiate a coup in La Paz. Its break up by Bond in Austria - famously played out to Tosca - should have given us a clue as to what the franchise might be planning. The only other question - is Waltz playing Blofeld or not - seems to remind us of the John Harrison fiasco with Star Trek: Into Darkness. Even tough Actor Benedict Cumberbatch hit it out of the park as Khan, Paramount's desire to keep his true identity under wraps ultimately destroyed confidence in the film. If Waltz is to play Blofeld, we hope it's done in such a way as makes sense for the franchise. Perhaps a name to change to hide his identity? Either way, Sony and Mendes need to be very careful with this one.

SPECTRE offers Mendes and all future Bond directors the chance to tell a sweeping story of perhaps the first terrorist group to appear in modern cinema, an agency that haunts Bond and MI6 through multiple movies. It also allows Sony to either bookend these and future titles with Dr. No or re-invent the franchise completely. No one pursues a legal issue like this for 50 years, only to burn it in one movie. The same logic applies to Blofeld, who represents a 'when not if' logic that can't be beat. Think of the last time we enjoyed a memorable villain who spanned several films; Bofeld offers the beleaguered Sony Pictures just such an opportunity. This could be the studio's last chance before declaring bankruptcy or selling its entertainment division, so SPECTRE offers a chance to either save the company or sweeten its value before being sold.

With so many appealing titles already slated for 2015, and the deepest collection of December movies in recent memory, SPECTRE appears ready to blow the entire James Bond universe wide open...again. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until the film releases on November 6, 2015 in the US to see if our greatest hopes will be realized.

#SPECTRE Bond 24 New Title & Announcement Video

Welcome back, Spectre. We've been expecting you. Today, at a grand unveiling at the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios, director Sam Mendes revealed the title of the 24th James Bond film - and the follow-up to the franchise's first billion-dollar grosser, Skyfall - will be SPECTRE. You can check out an impressive motion poster over on Facebook.


And, as Mendes intimated, Bond fans will know what that means. SPECTRE is, of course, the terrorist organisation that was a thorn in Bond's side throughout most of the early 007 films. It stands for Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge And Extortion, and is not to be trifled with.



Of late, SPECTRE has not had a presence in the Bond universe thanks to a long-running copyright battle between MGM and the estate of Kevin McClory, the producer of Thunderball and the unofficial Connery Bond, Never Say Never Again. That, however, was resolved in 2013, paving the way for SPECTRE to return to the Bond movies - and with it, presumably, its leader, the iconic Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Not so, at least according to today's announcement, in which Christoph Waltz was confirmed as a cast member. His involvement has been rumored for a couple of weeks, and it's been presumed that he will play Blofeld. Yet his character is called Oberhauser, according to the official press release. So nothing to see here. No Blofeld, move along.

But, that bait-and-switch has happened quite a bit in recent times - there's the John Harrison/Khan situation in Star Trek Into Darkness, the constant denials that Marion Cotillard was playing Talia Al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises, and of course the smokescreen that enveloped Naomie Harris in Skyfall, where her character Eve was revealed at the last minute as the new Miss Moneypenny.

So, for the next year or so, Waltz and everyone involved with SPECTRE will have to field endless "You're Blofeld really, aren't you?" questions. But while it would make sense to bring Blofeld back, and while Waltz would be a great choice to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Donald Pleasence, Charles Gray and Telly Savalas, perhaps Mendes and EON, the Bond producers, are building up to his reintroduction down the line. All will be revealed next October – and certainly the official synopsis hints at intrigue to be uncovered.

“A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”

See? Interesting.

Waltz, double Oscar winner that he is, is the crowning glory of an excellent cast, the principals of which were confirmed today. There's that newcomer Daniel Craig as Bond, of course, and he is joined by returning MI6 allies, Ralph Fiennes as M, Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Rory Kinnear as Tanner. A new addition to the MI6 ranks is Andrew Scott as a guy called Denbigh. Will he turn out to be a bad 'un? Scott, of course, has form in that department. He is Moriarty from Sherlock, after all.

If Waltz is to be the bad guy, every villain needs a formidable henchman, and Mendes confirmed that Dave Bautista will go from guarding the galaxy to trying to break the world as a character called Mr. Hinx. It’s been a long time since Bond faced off against a walking, talking brick shithouse. Their encounters should prove memorable.

And of course, no Bond film is complete without Bond girls. And SPECTRE's come in the form of Monica Bellucci – a Bond femme fatale in waiting, if ever we saw one – and Lea Seydoux. It’s a cracking cast, filled with storied actors who should be able to bring depth and shade to the standard Bond archetypes.

The script for SPECTRE, which will also see 007 drive a new Aston Martin, the DB10, was written by John Logan, along with longtime Bond scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Skyfall cinematographer Roger Deakins is not part of Bond 24's team, and Interstellar DP Hoyte van Hoytema will take his place. Continuing the link with Chris Nolan, his regular editor, Lee Smith, will cut the film, which starts filming on Monday in Pinewood, London, Mexico City, Rome and Tangier and Erfoud, in Morocco.

As the official press release also states, Bond will return to the snow once again, this time in Sölden, along with other Austrian locations, Obertilliach, and Lake Altaussee. And if that doesn’t instantly make you think of the greatest Blofeld story of them all, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, we’ll be very surprised.

SPECTRE is set for November 6, 2015 release in the US.
