CBS is readying to launch in January a new streaming series, Star Trek: Picard, featuring Patrick Stewart‘s famed Starfleet officer Jean-Luc Picard. The actor led the cast of TV’s Star Trek: The Next Generation as the captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise for 7 seasons beginning in 1987 and then in 4 theatrical films, the final being in 2002’s Star Trek: Nemesis. To familiarize viewers with Jean-Luc Picard and the Star Trek: The Next Generation universe, CBS and Paramount have released Star Trek: Picard Movie & TV Collection, a new Blu-ray box set centering around the character.
The 6-disc Blu-ray set includes all four feature films starring TNG cast — Star Trek: Generations, Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Insurrection, Star Trek: Nemesis — as well as the scifi television show’s 2-part episode “The Best of Both Worlds.” If you don’t already own one of the previously released movie Blu-ray box sets, then this new Picard-centric package is the way to go as far as what you get for the price — and you get a lot.
CBS has found huge success with Star Trek: Discovery on its CBS All Access streaming platform. And now they are expanding the franchise with a new television series Star Trek: Picard. The spin-off series will feature Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) 20 years after the events of the film Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). Now we are getting a first look at the series. Check out the trailer here below.
After twenty long years, a sequel to 1996’s Independence Day is set to arrive in theaters in just a few days.
Some familiar faces from the original movie have returned for the sequel, which is titled Independence Day: Resurgence, including Dr. Brackish Okun (played by Brent Spiner). There’s only one fairly large problem with that: most people watching ID4 back in ’96, myself included, thought that Dr. Okun met a most unpleasant demise after being used as a human ventriloquist puppet by one of the aliens. But as we’ve seen in the various trailers and TV spots for the movie, there he is, alive and well!
But instead of making you wait to actually see the movie to find out how that’s possible, 20th Century Fox has released a new video that actually explains what happened to Dr. Okun. You can check it out below.
Of all the days to drop a trailer, 20th Century Fox decided today, Earth Day, a day to celebrate Mother Earth, to drop the newest trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence. It was 20 years ago since the first film was released, where aliens nearly annihilated the world with their destructive force. Since their defeat, humans have been able to adapt their technology to modify their own military forces. However, the aliens they defeated were only the welcoming committee, as they have returned with an even more powerful weapon than the one they had unleashed on us two decades ago.
Roland Emmerich returns to his directing post. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Brent Spiner are also back to reprise their respective roles. They will all be joined by newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, and Jessie Usher. Check out the newest trailer here below.
