Star Trek Movie News
Those hoping for a 2011 release date for the sequel to J.J. Abrams "Star Trek" have to wait a bit longer. Paramount announced a tentative June 29th, 2012 for the opening of Star Trek XII. As reported by ComingSoon.com, it's the only movie scheduled for that time frame so far. We're pretty excited that Paramount and Bad Robot didn't decide on a quick turnaround. The sequel needs time to be made right. Plus, we're pretty sure that J.J., Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman have lots on their plates.CONTINUE READING >>

Zanuck Producer of the Year film award is a precursor for some 13 Oscar best picture winners over the two last decadse. We can dream can't we.

Today has very special meaning for us Trek fans, in 1979 the Robert Wise directed "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" hit the big screen. This also has special meaning for me, ST:TMP is one of the first movies I actually remember seeing in the theater. In fact, I can recall being with my family on a small vacation in Galveston, Texas and seeing the now famous rainbow styled poster at the movie theater. It was tiny, single or double screened theater there in Galveston, but I remember being fascinated by the movie. First thing I asked for that Christmas, Star Trek: The Motion Picture on LP.
