Also in 2013, Yelchin was cast in the titular leading role of 'Odd Thomas', in which he portrayed a psychic that was able to see dead people before going about solving or avenging their murder.
This is where the Star Trek franchise officially shifts from thoughtful drama into thunderous action. Fast & Furious director Justin Lin brings a kinetic energy to this third chapter in the rebooted space saga, leaping between chases and battles to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Combined with constant witty interaction, the film is massively entertaining, even if the plot ultimately feels a bit thin.
It's been three years since the crew of the Enterprise started their five-year mission, and they're in need of a break. So they head to the nearest spaceport for some down-time, which is soon interrupted when Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his team (Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin) are called to travel through a dangerous nebula to rescue a kidnapped crew from a villainous thug called Krall (Idris Elba). On arrival, the Enterprise is overwhelmed by Krall's bee-like military swarm. Stranded on a strange planet, the crew teams up with Jaylah (Sofia Boutella), a feisty survivor of one of Krall's earlier attacks. And as they realise the extent of Krall's evil plan, they're not sure that they can stop him.

It joins '10 Cloverfield Lane' and the upcoming ghost story 'The Conjuring 2'.
This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer.
Meet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'
1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

Arielle and Valéry don't exactly have a conventional marriage, they're happy enough and have two children together but they openly embrace the company of other extramarital partners - well, that is as long as the relationship doesn't involve kissing or any other physical contact.
When a chance meeting leads Arielle to make friends with gifted writer Brian, they instantly have a connection. He's quiet and much longer than the French mother, but it's obvious that both Arielle and Brian would like to meet again.
As Arielle begins to tell Brian that she can see Brian again between the hours of 5 and 7 she opens up to the youngster tells him about her French diplomat husband and their children. The information is hard to digest for Brian but feeling that their friendship is worth exploring further, Brian agrees to Arielle's rules. As their relationship deepens, Brian introduces Arielle to his parents; although obviously older than their son, she's a beautiful woman who both can see making their son happy - that is until they find out about the peculiar arrangement. As the pair grow closer, a relationship with no physical bond becomes ever harder. 2 hours a day isn't enough time for Brian and he wishes for far more than he knows he should morally ask for. Is there a way for Arielle and Brian's relationship to work?

After Van Helsing, the first G.I. Joe and the Mummy movies, filmmaker Stephen Sommers just about keeps his excessive action instincts in check for this offbeat supernatural comedy. There are still aspects of a thriller here, but the characters have a surprising depth that adds to the humour and drama, providing both strong laughs and moving emotional moments.
Yelchin plays the title character, who isn't sure if his given name is just missing a first T or whether it was prophetic. As Odd grows up, he discovers that he can see dead people who need help solving their murders. The police chief (Dafoe) in his small desert town believes him because he gets every case right. And now Odd's girlfriend Stormy (Timlin) helps him piece together clues when it becomes apparent that something hugely horrific is about to happen. Odd also turns to his psychic friend Viola (Mbatha-Raw) as he grows increasingly worried about the rising presence of deathly creatures that swarm around people who are about to die.
Sommers sets this up with a wry wink, letting Yelchin play Odd as a nerdy nice guy who can't quite believe he has such a hot girlfriend. We like him instantly, so are happy to go along with the fantastical story. And the witty dialogue keeps us chuckling with its snappy commentary and absurd sideroads. Yelchin gives Odd a terrific sense of physical energy, which helps him develop sharp chemistry with everyone else on-screen. With his visions of something momentous on the horizon, the film feels like a comical variation on Donnie Darko.
