Mere months away from its world premiere, the cast and crew of Star Trek: Picard took to the stage at Madison Square Garden for New York Comic-Con to share tidbits about the show. Moderated by CBSN anchor and CBS News national correspondent Vladimir Duthiers, the discussion included Sir Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), Isa Briones (Dahj), Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal “Chris” Rios), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Harry Treadaway (Narek), and Evan Evagora (Elnor), as well as executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, and Heather Kadin, co-executive producer and director Hanelle Culpepper and supervising producer Kirsten Beyer.
It was certainly an exhilarating atmosphere in MSG’s Hulu Theater, especially when Stewart stepped onto the stage and was greeted by a standing ovation. The crowd’s excitement only enhanced when he announced that New York Comic-Con fans would be the first to view the “quite unseen” second trailer for Picard.

By now we should all know that the Transformers films are not subtle and clearly lacking in narrative. But that’s okay. Since 2007 these films have been blowing up cities and the box office. But now it all comes to an end for director Michael Bay (or does it?).
Transformers: The Last Knight will be his final film (is it really?), and he intends to go out with a Bayhem bang. Though the Transformers film franchise has had a history of just being big robots and big explosions, The Last Knight may be the first to actually expand on the long history of the alien robot species’ relationship with humans. Check out the newest trailer for the film below.
No matter what you think of the Transformers film franchise, Paramount will continue to release new films as long as they are a box office success. They’ve even gone as far as expanding the world by planning for 14 films featuring multiple spinoffs and sequels. And it’s going to be important to know what will happen to the future of this franchise now that Michael Bay has declared that Transformers: The Last Knight will be his last time directing in that franchise.
Trailers have shown us that the Autobots and Decepticons have been on earth for much longer than we originally thought. In fact, they were on this earth as far back as medieval times and even had a role in World War II. How much of an impact they had is still unclear, but a new set of released images give us some sense of their “historical” importance. Check them out below.
