This is a great tune – so fresh, so clean, this one is big. The radio edit (above) is actually better – I’m not against cursing on songs but in this case it spoils the unedited version.

Star Trek Sequel Already In The Works

Filed under: Star Trek, movies — Tags: , , , , — Roco-D @ 8:55 am

According to Sci Fi Wire a sequel to the much anticipated Star Trek relaunch-movie is already in the works:

Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to its Star Trek franchise relaunch, and has hired Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof to pen the screenplay, Variety reported.

J.J. Abrams, who directed and produced the latest chapter, is onboard to produce the follow-up alongside his Bad Robot partner Bryan Burk. No decision has been made yet on whether Abrams will return behind the camera for the sequel.

“There’s obviously a lot of hubris involved in signing on to write a sequel of a movie that hasn’t even come out yet,” said Lindelof, co-creator with Abrams of ABC’s Lost who produced the upcoming Trek but did not contribute to Orci and Kurtzman’s screenplay. “But we’re so excited about the first one that we wanted to proceed.”

The story is still in the embryonic stage, but the trio are aiming to deliver their script to the studio by Christmas for what would likely be a summer 2011 release. As for potential storylines, Kurtzman stressed that the writing team will wait to take a cue from fan reaction about which direction to go.

The latest Star Trek movie posters look pretty decent, not the best that I’ve ever seen, but they’ll do. I’m looking forward to this when it’s released in May.

New Pixar Movie – “UP”

Filed under: movies, trailer, up, video — Tags: , , — Roco-D @ 9:32 am


up, up and away!This movie looks great! According to MovieWeb:

An old man (played by Ed Asner) ties a thousand helium balloons to his house and floats off into the stratosphere. He is accompanied on this adventure by a young boy scout that accidentally stows away on his front porch. Together, they get into all kinds of crazy mishaps.

At this point, I could very easily offer an advanced review of the film. Forty-five minutes is an awful lot of footage to view from an eighty-minute cartoon as a preview. It’s sort of frustrating, because I don’t want to have to sit and wait through these same forty-five minutes all over again when Up gets a proper release on May 29th. I want to watch the ending right now. Damn it! And in Up’s case, it truly is a stunning cinematic achievement that I didn’t necessarily want to be whisked away from. Especially right in the middle of the second act. I was surprised at the emotional depth the film packs. There is a clear and definite reason why this old man has decided to float his house into the heavens, and its rendered in a deeply touching ten minutes that just might break your heart.
