Star Trek Beyond Trailer


When the Starship Enterprise finds itself under forceful attack, the crew on board fight to their best ability but it's not enough. The unstoppable wave of aliens constantly bombarding the ship means that the crew must accept defeat and flee to an unknown planet. Given the crew were deep into a five year mission, their location to the rest of the Federation is unknown and a rescue mission is going to be far from easy.

Simon Pegg George Takei Justin Lin John Cho

Star Trek Beyond co-writer Simon Pegg has said he “respectfully disagrees” with George Takei, after the actor called the news that Hikaru Sulu would be gay in the new movie “really unfortunate”. Takei, who is openly gay and played Sulu in the original series and movies, said that the franchise should have made a new character gay, instead of “twisting” Gene Roddenberry’s creation.

Lebron James Justin Lin

It looks like we'll finally get a chance to re-live a particularly special part of our childhoods as it is announced that a sequel to 1996's basketball flick 'Space Jam' is well on the way - and, as a bonus, it's rumoured that Lebron James will take over from Michael Jordan as the new movie's main star.

LeBron James made his acting debut last year in Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow's 'Trainwreck', so it's not completely unlikely for the Cleveland Cavaliers star to pick up another major comedy. On the other hand, Brian Windhorst of ESPN has reminded us that no deal regarding the NBA player has gone through as of yet.

After signing on to direct a couple of episodes from season 2 of HBO's True Detective, Fast and Furious filmmaker Justin Lin is now the man that will take over from JJ Abrams on Star Trek 3.

Though Abrams was never really in the running for the third sci-fi movie - given his allegiances to Star Wars - Lin does replace the high profile Roberto Orci, who climbed from the director's seat a couple of weeks ago.

Justin Lin Jeremy Renner Vin Diesel Dwayne Johnson Paul Walker Matt Damon

Justin Lin has been signed on to direct the next instalment of the Bourne franchise, which will see Jeremy Renner return as the star of the show. Filming for the fifth Bourne film is due to begin next year, with the movie expected to arrive in cinemas in summer 2015.

Lin, who masterminded the Fast and Furious franchise - which has become one of the most successful film series in history - was announced as the director of the next Bourne film via Deadline, who also revealed that Renner will be returning as Aaron Cross. The 2015 release is being written by Invictus and Sherlock Holmes writer, Anthony Peckham.

The fifth Bourne film will be Lin's first project since stepping down as the head of the Fast and Furious franchise - which grossed over $1 billion from the last three films alone - in place of James Wan. Universal have enlisted the help of Lin to hopefully propel the Bourne series to similar heights enjoyed by F&F.

The final trailer for Fast & Furious 6 is finally here, featuring Dwayne Johnson, Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel driving cars really, really fast. Ok, so it's a little more than that, though not too much. Essentially, the latest trailer is the best bits from the previous clips that have made their way online.

If you're a fan of the franchise you're probably aware that Justin Lin's swan song in the series follows Dwayne Johnson's Luke Hobbs tracking down Dom Toretto (Diesel) in order to ask for his help in taking down a much more dangerous criminal gang, led by Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). Johnson's character needs to recover Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez) whom he assumed was dead. Of course, nothing is ever that simple in the world of the Fast and the Furious and Shaw has his own team of experts pulling off dating heists.
