“You haven’t got a prayer…”

Directed by Cuban-American filmmaker Camilo Vila (Resurrection Blvd.), 1988’s The Unholy is a cheesy ’80s ripoff of ’70s “prestige horror” films like The Exorcist, The Omen, and The Sentinel. Now available on Blu-ray thanks to Lionsgate’s Vestron Video Collector’s Series, this demonic possession flick is concerned with Catholic priests, young and old alike, doing spiritual battle with a sexy-but-demonic force.

Box Office Buzz: ‘Star Trek’ Earns $79 Mil; Breaks IMAX Records
  |  @   |  

While touted as being “not your father’s Star Trek,” perhaps it was actually your mother’s, because this Mother’s Day weekend, JJ Abrams‘ prequel/reboot Star Trek reportedly earned $79.2 million at the domestic box office and has broken opening weekend IMAX records.

Paramount reports that due to strong attendance on Mother’s Day yesterday — which brought in $21 million — the film exceeded expectations by $3 million. The film went into early previews on Thursday night and played in 3,849 locations.

Meanwhile, 11% of the film’s total domestic gross came from its Star Trek: The IMAX Experience showings, which brought in $8.5 million from 138 IMAX screens. The limited IMAX run registered a per screen average of approximately $62,000 for the weekend, marking the highest grossing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday ever for an IMAX opening.

Movie Review: Star Trek (2009)
  |  

Star Trek– ***1/2
Directed by J.J. Abrams
Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Eric Bana, John Cho, Ben Cross, Bruce Greenwood
Rated: PG-13
Release Date: May 8, 2009

Commanding attraction from a once commendable television franchise, which, up until 2009, has seen countless diffident reboots, is Star Trek, a new perpetual powerhouse film that is an imaginative mix of futuristic grandeur and old-fashioned history. The movie echoes the unmistakable freshness of a distinctive and original action picture while still pertaining to the origins of a forty-year-old series that will still satisfy die hard Trekkie fans and lay a new slate for first timers.

The creative imagination behind the TV series Lost and action pictures like M.I. III is J.J. Abrams, and he is at the forefront of reconstructing a partly departed and retroactive, iconic television series from the 60s. Sounds appetizing when given the amount of numerous failed attempts at reincarnating the Enterprise; the last being 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis. Abrams recognizes those films’ faults and is up to the challenge to fathom a dissimilar approach to a decades old problem that hindered most Star Trek movies.
