Lucasfilm and Disney have confirmed that Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian in the upcoming, as yet untitled, young Han Solo film as part of Disney’s Star Wars Anthology series.

Glover will star alongside Alden Ehrenreich, who portrays the smuggler made famous by Harrison Ford, in the 2018 spin-off directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Taking place in-between the events of  Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of The Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope it will further expand on the period that saw the rise of the Empire, much like Star Wars: Rogue One that comes out this December.

“This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi,” Lucasfilm added in a statement. In September, producers announced a third Star Wars anthology film would arrive in 2020.

Lord and Miller had the following to say about the casting in a statement:

“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”

And my personal take that nobody asked me for? Well, I’m extremely hyped and happy for this casting news. I’ll admit that I have been wary of revisiting these iconic characters due to the very real possibility of screwing it all royally up and tarnishing the legacy of these larger than life heroes I grew up watching.

I am still skeptical about a young Han Solo film but knowing the talent and charisma of Glover (I’m a huge fan of Community where he played the ever affable and hilarious Troy Barnes) my fears are certainly lessened.

I can’t personally think of a better choice to play the character played so superbly in Star Wars: Episode IV: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi by Billie Dee Williams.

We will have a while to wait to see the actor and rapper that also goes by the name of Childish Gambino on stage don the iconic cape (you know it will happen) with the as of yet untitled Han Solo movie opening in theaters on May 25, 2018. Not to worry though, with Star Wars: Rogue One coming in December and Star Wars: Episode VIII landing in 2017 there will be plenty of adventures in a galaxy far, far away to keep us all entertained.

Jeri Ryan want to reprise role of Seven of Nine in new Star Trek Series. https://viralfrequency.com/jeri-ryan-want-to-reprise-role-of-seven-of-nine-in-new-star-trek-series/ https://viralfrequency.com/jeri-ryan-want-to-reprise-role-of-seven-of-nine-in-new-star-trek-series/#comments Tue, 14 Jun 2016 23:25:34 +0000 https://viralfrequency.com/?p=6038

In a recent interview with Digital Spy Jeri Ryan, famous for playing the sultry borg, Seven of Nine (more like Ten out of Ten, am I right) in Star Trek: Voyager mentioned that she would be open to returning to the iconic character if given the opportunity.

Jeri Ryan burst on the to the scene in season four of Star Trek: Voyager instantly becoming a fan favourite as the sexy, strong and compelling former borg drone. Whilst looking absolutely stunning in those various tight fitting costumes she was more than just sex appeal and went on to become a very memorable character in the Star Trek canon.

“My understanding is that it’s in a very different world from any of the previous shows – but never say never. It’d be fun to just drop in and revisit her – not that I want to revisit her all the time!”

Details about the new series are scarce still but rumor has it that it will be set between Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country and Star Trek: The Next Generation. This poses a problem since the character of Seven of Nine (originally Annika Hansen) would either be very young or not even born yet.

A problem for sure but this is Star Trek we are talking about and the potential for some possible time travel shenanigans are always on the table.

If a clever writer can bring her back in to the series in a natural and non forced way then I am all for it. It would be amazing fan service and a brilliant bridging to the previous series. Jeri Ryan isn’t the only former Voyager alumna that has aspirations about reprising their role. Kate Mulgrew, (Captain Katherine Janeway) has also expressed interest in returning to Star Trek in some capacity.

Lots of potential for the writers of the new series to think about when it comes to drafting those time travel stories we all know and love?

Jeri Ryan in the same interview also had some nice words for new show runner Bryan Fuller.

“Number one, I just love him personally. He’s such a great guy. He’s incredibly talented and he has such a great and quirky vision for all of the projects he’s done. I think he’s going to bring that creative spin – but still have respect for the original beast because he wrote for it for so long [on  Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine]. He’s just going to be great. I’m thrilled for him.”

The new series is slated for release in 2017 and there is a considerable amount of hype building around it. Star Trek has been represented by the big screen reboots since 2009 and has not been on the small screen since Enterprise ended in 2005. I think the consensus is now that Star Trek is long overdue a return to its roots on television and with a talented group of former Star Trek writers running the show there is plenty of reason to be excited that what makes Trek so great will be preserved and expanded upon.

Speculating about potential cameos of well loved characters is perhaps premature but it’s still good to know that even 15 years after the last episode of Star Trek: Voyager aired there is still plenty of love from members of the cast for their characters and the franchise. Jeri Ryan had this to say about her role:

“That character gave me a career. That was a beautifully written character to get to play as an actor. She was really a gift. As far as legacy to the fans, it was yet another really strong portrayal of a woman. She was incredibly intelligent and incredibly strong. Young girls can grow up – and have grown up – looking up to her. I’ve heard from a lot of young women now watching Star Trek that she inspired them to go into engineering, into astrophysics and any number of STEM industries.”

What do you think? Should the new show break away from all the previous series and start totally fresh or are you open to the idea of characters from previous shows turning up?

The diminutive green Jedi Master is one of the most powerful characters in the entire Star Wars saga and was instrumental in training Luke to become a Jedi and to also resist the pull of the dark side. But what if the benevolent and wise Yoda had turned to the dark side himself? Chaos would no doubt have ensued with Yoda even possibly defeating the emperor and taking over the entire empire himself and plunging the universe into even more darkness than Darth Sidious and Vader did. He may be small but as we know you shouldn’t judge him by his size and without a doubt Yoda falling to the dark side would have been a disaster. Of course, Yoda stayed in the light but “what if” scenarios are always fun.

Alternative Video Game/Movie/TV series artwork is very popular on the internet with some fantastic artists bringing fresh and unique artistic takes on well known characters. Yoda, super popular as he is, is no exception and the “what if” of Yoda falling to the dark side has been thought of plenty of times before so here is some art from around the web showing what it might look like if the Jedi Master succumbed to the dark side!

It’s been a year since Kung Fury burst on to the internet. A short film crowdfunded on Kickstarter by writer/director/star David Sandberg. An over the top, highly stylized 80’s inspired extravaganza. Sandberg originally had looked to raising $200,000 but ended up smashing that original goal with $630,019 finally raised. That was enough to expand certain aspects of the film and even manage to get David Hasselhoff in for a cameo and song.

Today the film is free to watch on Youtube and has racked up over 25 million views. If you have never checked it out before you should do yourself a favour and remedy that A.S.A.P.

So, with the year anniversary today Sandberg released this on his twitter account. S script for Kung Fury II wrapped in the red bandana for extra emphasis.

We don’t really have any more information to go on but this seems to speak more than clearly enough that KFII is a go. The “IT’S HAPPENING” tag on that tweet pushes it over the edge. More Hasselhoff, dinosaurs, Nordic Gods and power glove powered time travel please.

On friday night Suicide Squad had its first test screening at Century 25 theaters in Union City, California.  Many of the lucky filmgoers that saw the film didn’t spend too much time getting on the Twittersphere afterwards to praise it.

This will certainly come as good news to DC as they continue to lag behind their Marvel rivals. Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice garnered many negative reviews (a bit unfairly I think, but I digress) and the public’s love in with Marvel continues to go from strength-to-strength. It’s well overdue for DC to not only exceed box office expectations but to also have a big critical success on their hands. Suicide Squad could very well be that film.

Slated for full release on August 4th for the rest of us not quite so lucky to get an advanced screening, we still have a ways to go until we get to see the likes of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as the latest incarnation of Mr. J, Will Smith as Deadshot as well as some possible bat related fun and games as the mayhem ensues.

Here are the tweets from some of the lucky ones that have seen it :

 

This is of course a very small group to take a sample from but for one of the more “out there” films coming from DC this year it’s good to hear the first impressions are so positive. Now to find out for ourselves if August would be kind and hurry up and get here.

Hot on the heels of the CBS teaser for the new but yet unnamed 2017 Star Trek series, we are now getting the full feature trailer for Star Trek: Beyond, the third in the rebooted Star Trek films.

Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In “Beyond,” the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
Director: Justin Lin
Cast: Idris Elba, Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Anton Yelchin and Karl Urban

When the first teaser trailer for Star Trek: Beyond dropped in December 2015 the immediate backlash was fierce. Many quickly dubbed it “Fast and Furious in Space,” a jab at Director Justin Lin who has directed most of the Fast & Furious films coupled with the nature of the teaser that focussed on things going fast and blowing up whilst the Beastie Boys, “Sabotage” played throughout.

The backlash was so great that co-writer and star Simon Pegg, himself a dyed-in-the world hardcore Trekkie, responded to the criticism, some of which was coming from Star Trek alumni like, George Takei and Wil Wheaton.

Harsh words from Wesley there for sure.

Pegg had this to say:

It was very action-packed,” Pegg told Hey U Guys (via /Film). “It was surprising. I find it to be kind of the marketing people saying, ‘Everybody come and see this film, it’s full of action and fun,’ when there’s a lot more to it than that. I didn’t love it because I know there’s a lot more to the film,” he explained. “There’s a lot more story and a lot more character stuff, and a lot more what I would call Star Trek stuff. But you know, they’ve got to bring a big audience in. They’ve got to bang the drum. To the Star Trek fans, I’d say be patient.”

All this is long in the past and finally the new trailer is here and shows a clear improvement over the original. The whizzing and banging is of course still in full effect, and did I just see the Enterprise being destroyed…..again? Surely not! But we also get a sense that there is more to the film than just mindless generic summer blockbuster action although it seems to be sparing no chance to throw the crew and ship in to perilous situations.

We also get a peek at Idris Elba, heavily laden in prosthetics, playing the ominous main villain of the piece, Krall

isthisidris-xlarge

And a better look also at Sofia Boutella, that from what I can gather is playing an alien with some pretty sweet martial arts moves. Fans of the Kingsman: The Secret Service will remember her as that ever so charming psychopathic legless assassin.  I look forward to seeing what she brings in this film.

With Simon Pegg writing and a far more intriguing second trailer with only a scant few months until release maybe there is reason to get the hype train rolling a little faster and more furious for this one.

Also, check this out. Reddit user SymptomaticFiend has made this brilliant mock-up poster harking back in design and inspiration to the original Star Trek: The Motion Picture poster from 1979:

With the new Star Trek series rapidly approaching at warp speed for its 2017 arrival back on the small screen CBS Studios have released this teaser trailer for advertisers at Carnegie Hall in New York City and now to us, Trekkies around the globe.

Almost everything about the new series is still a mystery to the general public but do expect that it will be set in the Prime Universe (as opposed to the alternate current film universe) and as the teaser tells us will feature a new crew, new villains , new heroes and new worlds as the iconic music swells.

The new series has been taking on some very interesting people to actually make the thing and if you’re a dyed in the wool Trek fan they should fill you with some hope.

With names like Nicholas Meyer (the director of Wrath of Khan and Undiscovered Country the best, in this humble fans opinion of the original cast films) on board as writer and consulting producer, Bryan Fuller as Executive Producer and showrunner and Alex Kurtzman also serving as an exec to no doubt bridge the old generation with the new, there is a lot to be excited for and the choices made show a willingness to get Star Trek “right” and make sure the core principles of what make Trek so special are the driving force of this new series.

We can’t get much from this teaser but tentatively the excitement grows to see a true new Star Trek series coming back to our screens after so long away.

There has been a ton of controversy over Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters starring the all female cast of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. Now with the updated title of Ghostbusters: Answer The Call it’s set for release on July 15th but the backlash isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

“We have a gift – we see what no one else is willing to see. We do things others can’t do,” McCarthy says. “If there’s a paranormal problem, we’re the ones to answer the call.”

When the first trailer dropped it was met with what can only be described as a massive backlash online. The trailer itself ended up becoming the most disliked video by ratio in Youtube’s history.

What possible reason could there be for this monumental anger and rejection online?

Ghostbusters is of course a highly beloved franchise and many see this latest film as a poorly made cash in on the name; and the first trailer, at least in my opinion, didn’t give many any reason to feel differently.

Then there is the all female cast. In defence of the film director Paul Feig accused those attacking it online of being sexist against the women taking on the lead roles for the film.

I have no doubt that there certainly are many idiot sexists out there that just hate the idea of the girls taking over for this, no doubt at all. I’ve spent more than 5 minutes on the internet. That said I also believe there are plenty of valid reasons to be unhappy with what we are seeing regardless of wether it’s a female or male lead (which of course should not matter.)

Bad effects and stereotypical and outdated humor that looks phoned in from the start is why I didn’t personally care for the first trailer and whilst I do see some improvements in this new trailer my opinion on this being a trainwreck of epic proportions is not budging for now. That said, final judgement will be kept until the full release is seen.

Whatever the case the controversy is not likely to slow down anytime soon what do you think of the new trailer?

When Fox announced that fan-favourite Prison Break was returning in 2017 it was met with a decent degree of hype and since then we’ve all been waiting for the trailer to arrive to see our erstwhile heroes return to do some more high quality prison escaping and breaking.

With Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Robert Knepper and Amaury Nolasco all reprising their roles fans of the original run of Prison Break have reason to be excited and the trailer certainly delivers on what looks to be a high-octane and drama fuelled continuation. 

I watched Prison Break on its original 2005-2009 run and was a big fan of the show. That said, by the last season the convoluted way the writers had to keep getting them back in to various prisons so they could satisfy the premise of the shows name had long since tipped over the edge of the ridiculous. Michael has broken out of 3 prisons by my count and looks to be adding a fourth in the new series. This lad breaks out of “prisons” easier than I do out of bed in the morning.

From the trailer we can see that Michael Scofield has somehow managed once more to get himself handily incarcerated and his brother Lincoln Burrows is heading up the rescue attempt to break him out.

It’s stretching the edges of credulity but given how fun the show can be and how great some of the characters are (awesome to see T-Bag making a return) this is one that deserves waving away the convoluted premise and to just enjoy that it’s coming back after 7 long years when it finally lands in 2017. This is one I’ll be definitely checking out.
