USPS STAR TREK 50th Anniversary Stamps Coming Soon

Via Variety The U.S. Postal Service will boldly go where it’s gone only once before.

The agency will debut a quartet of “Star Trek” stamps honoring the original TV show’s 50th anniversary. The USS Enterprise, the Starship Enterprise inside an outline of a Starfleet insignia, a silhouette of a crew member being beamed up and a Vulcan salute get adhesive as part of the 2016 stamp roster. The classic icons are set against backgrounds mirroring the colors of the characters’ uniforms from the series.

The USPS also launched “Star Trek”-themed stamps — worth 33 cents — in 1999 as part of its “Celebrate the Century” initiative. The 2016 counterparts are commemorative “Forever” stamps.

“We aren’t Trekkies, but we love the franchise, especially the tone and aesthetic of the original CBS series,” said Jason Kernevich, creative director of The Heads of State, the design team behind the stickies. “As we were working on the art Leonard Nimoy passed, so that created an even stronger connection to the material for us.”

A new “Star Trek” TV series will debut in January 2017 following the semicentennial of the original program, which premiered on Sept. 8, 1966. Alex Kurtzman is developing the sci-fi drama for CBS’ digital subscription service. The show will debut on CBS then be available exclusively on CBS’ All Access.

Kurtzman co-wrote and produced 2009’s “Star Trek” with Roberto Orci and 2013’s “Star Trek Into Darkness” with Orci and Damon Lindelof. The newest sequel in the rebooted franchise, “Star Trek Beyond,” hits theaters on July 22.

First Look At Rene Zellweger As Judy Garland

Renee Zellweger would be taking on the challenge of playing Judy Garland in a new biopic called, simply, Judy. If you wondered what she'd look like, you now have the chance.

Director Rupert Goold has now kicked off shooting the film in London, working from a script by The Crown's Tom Edge. The story is set in 1968 as Garland arrives in chilly, swinging London to perform at a sell-out run of her show. It's 30 years since she appeared in The Wizard Of Oz, and if her voice isn't quite the same, her intensity has grown.

She faces battles with her management and charms the musicians she works with, while also starting a romance with Mickey Deans, who will go on to be her fifth husband. Yet she's also haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood and struggling with the desire to be back home with her kids.

Jessie Buckley, Finn Wittrock and Michael Gambon are also in the cast, with no word yet on a release date.
