Star Trek Beyond beats the curse of the odd numbered Trek films with a stick.

With plenty of the kind of pace you expect from director Justin Lin, the film wins praise for the way he integrates the character moments into the action.

I don’t know what the haters are whining about, so far everything I’ve seen from Star Trek: Beyond looks pretty darn awesome. Looking forward to this one. Check out this new trailer. On the one hand the Rhianna song, doesn’t quite fit, but the overall trailer is pretty haunting and well done.

TMNT: Out of the Shadows: Better – But Only Just!

The first movie in the series had one really good action sequence and a bit of clever banter but largely a waste of space.

Out of the Shadows makes a more than casual nod to the delightful animated series of the eighties and, when it gets it right is definitely an improvement. Then it squanders those improvements for a harebrained subplot that builds resentment between the brothers.

See for yourself after the break. Monster Trucks stars Lucas Till and will be in theaters in January 2017.

Contextual Trailer: Star Trek Beyond!

Remember the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond? The one that was a whirlwind of action with only pauses for a couple pithy remarks?  Remember how a lot of Trekkers complained that it looked like Beyond was going to be Fast and Furious in space?

The new trailer puts all that action into context – with Captain James T. Kirk facing a bit of an existential crisis, and a brief flurry of Spock/Bones debate. It’s as if Paramount Pictures was aware of how fans would react to the first trailer thus setting up this more typically Trek trailer.

This is a superb second trailer. Check it out after the break. Star Trek Beyond opens on July 22nd.
