One of the most prolific and successful writers working in Hollywood today is Alex Kurtzman!
Along with his partner Roberto Orci, they are responsible for writing such popular films as The Legend of Zorro, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers, Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Cowboys & Aliens, as well as the upcoming films Edge of Tomorrow, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. They also created the TV series Fringe and Hawaii Five-0, not to mention that Kurtzman recently made his directorial debut with the film People Like Us. In addition, the duo produced this summer’s surprise hit Now You See Me, as well as the highly anticipated Ender’s Game. Now their latest film Star Trek Into Darkness, which they co-wrote with Damon Lindelof (Prometheus) and is a sequel to the popular 2009 reimagining of the iconic franchise, is available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning September 10th.
Once again directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Trek Into Darkness finds the crew of the USS Enterprise discovering an unstoppable force of terror within their own organization that forces Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) to lead a manhunt into a war-zone world in order to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction named Khan Noonien Singh (Benedict Cumberbatch). Along with Pine, the returning cast includes Zachary Quinto as Spock, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, Karl Urban as Bones, Simon Pegg as Scotty, John Cho as Sulu, Anton Yelchin as Chekov, and Bruce Greenwood as Pike, as well as new cast members Alice Eve (The Raven) as Carol Marcus, and Peter Weller (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part 1) as Admiral Marcus.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with writer and producer Alex Kurtzman about his work on Star Trek Into Darkness, as well as its recently announced follow up Star Trek 3, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The popular filmmaker discussed the latest Star Trek movie, the decision to use iconic Trek character Khan as the film’s villain, why there was so much secrecy surrounding the role during the movie’s marketing campaign, returning to the franchise without director J.J. Abrams, and the process of choosing the villains for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
The final frontier is in your hands now. Or, rather, the final frontier is now in your living room.
Star Trek Into Darkness, the twelfth theatrical adventure of the starship Enterprise, brings our spacefaring heroes of the Federation to high definiton Blu-ray this Tuesday, September 10th.
He may look like the monosyllabic bruiser checking your I.D. on the way into an unsavory bar, but Vin Diesel is possessed of the gift of gab.
The loquacious action star is sharing his enthusiasm for Riddick, this Friday's sci-fi sequel that heralds the title character's return after an absence of almost a decade.
Interstellar outlaw Richard B. Riddick first charmed audiences thirteen years ago as the breakout character in Pitch Black. As one of the survivors of a crash landing on a desolate alien world, the extremely proficient killer whose polished eyes see in the dark went up against a swarm of nocturnal beasts. The sequel, 2004's summer event movie The Chronicles of Riddick, put the anti-hero at the center of a vast mythology, revealing him as the last of an extinct species known as Furyans and putting him in conflict with a marauding galactic empire.
Nine years after the straightforward sci-fi spectacle of that sequel comes Riddick, a return to form for the genre's foremost tank top-wearing mass murderer. Without abandoning the elements introduced in The Chronicles of Riddick, this entry more closely follows the stripped-down approach of Pitch Black. Once again, Riddick finds himself marooned on harsh alien soil. With no other option, he activates a distress beacon, one that brings not rescue, but bounty hunters intent on collecting his head. Unluckily for them, the mercenaries aren't just facing the most dangerous man in the galaxy, but also another limitless hoard of alien carnivores.
On Riddick, Vin Diesel dons the characters goggles again, working with David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway), the writer-director behind both Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick. IAR recently attended a press conference in which star and producer Diesel was happy to discuss Richard Riddick's return, how his fatherhood affected the character, building franchises like Fast & Furious, financing Riddick independently, Dungeons and Dragons influencing the atmosphere on set, matching muscles with professional wrestlers, and the future of the last Furyan.
The red band preceding the Riddick trailer that debuted at Comic-Con today declares that next month's sequel is rated R on account of "strong violence, language and some sexual content/nudity."
You won't see any sexual content in this three-minute look at Riddick, but you will see at least one knee-slappingly over-the-top kill. More importantly, you'll see Vin Diesel once again growling as interstellar outlaw Richard B. Riddick.
Richard B. Riddick is an avowed bad guy, a spacefaring mass murderer with only the barest hint of a conscience.
Nonetheless, he still loveable to an alien dog, seen in a new piece of Riddick concept art and some Comic-Con promotional art declaring "Riddick Rules."
"You're not afraid of the dark, are you?" Vin Diesel growls in the first TV spot for Riddick, alluding to both the character's first onscreen adventure and one of his distinguishing attributes.
The latest poster for Riddick declares that Richard B. Riddick's revenge is survival, a statement that applies both to the title character and the series itself.
Even on a brand new Riddick IMAX poster, Richard B. Riddick sticks the shadows.
A new international trailer and Comic-Con specific poster for September's Riddick boast Vin Diesel at full grizzle as he returns to the sweaty, dangerous, sci-fi character for the first time in almost a decade.
