Night at the Museum took an incredibly novel idea (artifacts at New York’s Natural History museum coming to life) and made it something truly special. It became a huge hit and we got the equally as fun Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian, which took Ben Stiller’s museum guard Larry Daley and his gang to Washington, D.C.
Where to go from there? How about the British Museum in London? Fantastic idea!
What “new” thing could they introduce there?
How about a museum guard (a Stiller comrade in “arms”) played by Rebel Wilson, a Lancelot come to life in the form of Dan Stevens and Ben Kingsley as the Pharaoh Merenkahre -- who is key to our all-new mystery? Bloody brilliant!
If you like the Night at the Museum movies, then you’ll love Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. All of our favorite characters are back, including Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt (sadly, the last time we will see him on screen), Steve Coogan as Octavius, Owen Wilson as Jedediah and Patrick Gallagher as Attila the Hun.
As previewed in the Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb trailer, Stiller is back at the New York Natural History Museum and it’s a big night where all the glitterati will be present. The tablet that we all know makes these museum residents come to life each night is having issues. It's fading and its power is weakening. That causes havoc during the fundraiser and Stiller must head to England to discover the source of the tablet’s power and how to fix it. And yes, the gang comes along too… even that cute little monkey.
One new character that is introduced absolutely steals the film and that is a caveman named Laaa who has an uncanny resemblance to Larry. It helps that he’s also played by Stiller. It is fantastic to see a new comedic Stiller character that has to rank up there with some of his best, and we even mean Zoolander! And don’t get us started on the comic explosiveness of the scenes with Stiller as Laaa and Wilson!
The thing about this third Night at the Museum is it is kind of just more of the same. And we adore that, but not everybody will. It does have the added feature of Stiller’s Laaa, but many might hope for a little bit more.
What does feel missing is imagination and the writing talents of the duo that created these characters, the original film’s screenwriters -- Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant. Perhaps their handprints could have added something to the series, like they did with Battle at the Smithsonian.
Our Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb review feels that, sure, we’ve added a new locale and some fantastic fresh characters (particularly Stevens as Lancelot, who knew he was so funny?!), but the richness of the first two movies is off, just a bit in this third flick -- something Lennon and Garant might have been able to do something about.
And one last thing... the film is quite a goodbye to Williams. They handle it brilliantly.
Watch Night at the Museum online to see how it all got started.

Musicals rarely get the remake treatment in Hollywood and with the arrival of Annie, filmmaker Will Gluck has brought back to the big screen a beloved character popular culture first fell in love with in the comic strip Little Orphan Annie back in 1924.
There was the wildly successful early '80s big screen version, but it is definitely time to revisit and update (a bit) the story for a new generation.
The project was originally conceived as a hip hop update with Jay-Z and Will Smith producing that could perhaps serve as a vehicle for Willow Smith, Will’s daughter. But years went by and not taking anything away from what Willow might have done, but she got too old for the part and thank goodness. That is because we get an Oscar nominee in the form of Quvenzhane Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) to portray the title character.
She is effervescent, a pure presence and all Annie, circa 2014.
But the star of this movie, truly, is Jamie Foxx. If there is an individual who is custom fit for a big screen musical it is the Oscar winner for Ray. We know his dramatic power. Everyone knows he can sing (he’s had several number one hits) and his comic timing is almost unmatched. Therefore, even though the film is called Annie, this particular project is all about the sensational showmanship of Foxx as Will Stacks.
As teased in the Annie trailer, Stacks is a tech billionaire and he’s running for mayor of New York City. He is way out of the running in the polls. One day he saves a little orphan (Annie) from being hit by a van and the video of it goes viral, shooting his popularity through the roof. His campaign staff (a brilliantly cast Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale) advises him to re-connect with Annie (with cameras present, of course) to check in on her. The little orphan with eternal optimism seizes on the opportunity and suggests Stacks takes her in.
Foxx and Wallis have fantastic chemistry and it is believable that his Stacks, a man who can barely handle an adoring public, would fawn and fall for a little girl such as the one Wallis plays. The two sing together, play together (there’s a fantastic scene where they go to a Hollywood movie premiere and after party) and bond as fathers and daughters do.
Gluck has chosen the right beats from the Broadway musical to bring to his production. There are slight pacing problems and it doesn’t flow as smoothly as the first film, or the live show. We think Cameron Diaz is a true talent, but she might have been miscast as Miss Hannigan, the overseer of the orphanage. We would have loved to have seen Jane Lynch cast as the evil, money-grubbing orphanage leader (she played the role on Broadway recently).
Wallis is terrific as Annie and she can sing like an angel (especially on the terrific sure-to-be-nominated for an Oscar new song, Opportunity), but her onscreen lip synching needs a bit of work.
The soundtrack is still largely faithful to the original. There are some hip hop beats, particularly on A Hard Knock Life, which is no surprise as Jay-Z once sampled that track. The entire song list gets a bit of an update, but it is not a full-on hip hop redo. It still works though -- my goodness, the music still works.
What saves this entire film is Foxx, our Annie review can report. He is electric and it is one of the greatest performances in a musical that we’ve seen in some time. We adore the actor in everything he does, but after witnessing him in Annie, we just want to know, what musical will he tackle next?
Despite a critical drubbing, Transformers: Age of Extinction went on to bank over a billion dollars at the international box office. So, it is probably no surprise that a fifth Transformers is coming, even if director Michael Bay said he’s likely to pass the helming duties to someone else. What is interesting is that it appears that star Mark Wahlberg will return and a fifth film will come sooner than later.
“Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more. I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on set soon,” he told MTV, while promoting his current flick The Gambler.
Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager was just a man trying to do right by his daughter (Nicola Peltz) and got drawn into the entire worldwide adventure that featured the human race’s biggest fight yet against the Transformers, thus the title!
Judging by the “on set soon” comment, we’re guessing that filming will begin sometime in 2015. In the meantime, Wahlberg has Ted 2 coming out in 2015.
Watch Transformers: Age of Extinction online to see Wahlberg in action.
Wouldn't want to meet Grimlock in a dark alley!
We all know that Star Wars: The Force Awakens finished shooting and of course we are still watching that Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer on repeat. But, what you might not know about the seventh Star Wars film is that it also was a vehicle to raise money for charity.
Specifically, J.J. Abrams sought to raise awareness and funds for UNICEF programs, and by connecting it to his film, and using the word “Force,” he truly struck a chord.
The program released a “thank you” video today with a ton of crew members and a few iconic characters giving thanks for the $5 million that has been raised to help fund what UNICEF does all over the globe.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters December 18 and brings back Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew and Anthony Daniels.
What more needs to be said to make our day?!
Ted 2 is just one of dozens of reasons why summer 2015 will be the best ever.
The sequel to the highly successful film that brought us those insane Ted quotes is landing June 26, 2015, and today we have our first image from the film. And as one would expect, it is hilarious.
The shot debuted in EW and features Mark Wahlberg and his Seth MacFarlane-voiced teddy bear Ted about to do something you’ve never seen a teddy bear do -- go scuba diving!
Ted 2 features Amanda Seyfried stepping into the girlfriend role that Mila Kunis held in the first film and it adds some heavyweights as well. Oscar winner Morgan Freeman plays a civil rights lawyer and Mad Men veteran John Slattery also stars.
Watch Ted online to see what all the fuss is about! Click through the slideshow below and also check out a fantastic set photo that involves Wahlberg, a motorcycle and his character's continuing fascination with Flash!
If you thought the terrorist attack on Sony Pictures was over when they pulled The Interview from theaters, you’d be wrong. The hackers, er terrorists, have made further demands today and we also have a clearer picture of who exactly they are.
The FBI has released a statement confirming what we thought all along, the Guardians of Peace (GOP) group is merely a front for the country of North Korea.
“As a result of our investigation, and in close collaboration with other U.S. Government departments and agencies, the FBI now has enough information to conclude that the North Korean government is responsible for these actions,” the statement read.
Just yesterday, Sony released a new The Interview trailer and it seemed to flip a middle finger to the terrorist threat by saying, “In Franco & Rogen We Trust” as Americana music played in the background.
That video has since been pulled, and the GOP has also demanded that Sony remove all trailers, clips and basically any evidence that the film even existed.
They are also demanding that the film never be shown on Video on Demand or be available on DVD, Blu-Ray or digital download.
“Now we want you never let the movie released, distributed or leaked in any form of, for instance, DVD or piracy,” the GOP said in a statement released to CNN.
Celebrities have reacted to The Interview being canceled, and the public sentiment seems to be, “We want to see this movie!”
Unfortunately, it appears that that will never be the case. So, since we have seen it (check out our The Interview review) -- check out the slideshow below for 11 things you won’t see in The Interview!
The film begins with a little girl singing in the most beautiful of ways. It's a song that sounds like it comes from an angel. But, then the translation appears on the bottom part of the screen and it's clear that this is a song that is meant to slam America with lines such as, "May they drown in their blood and feces." It's absolutely hilarious.
The first Get Hard trailer has premiered and it gives us a first look at Will Ferrell’s next movie after he gave us those long awaited Anchorman 2 quotes.
Get Hard stars Ferrell as a financier who is found guilty of fraud and sentenced to 10 years in a maximum security prison. Afraid he won’t be able to hack it, he hires the man who washes his car (Kevin Hart) to train him to… Get Hard.
We love the scene in the trailer below where Hart is explaining why he went along with the idea that Ferrell believes he even went to prison!
Ferrell and Hart are both of our favorite comic screen actors out there, and the fact that this is their first pairing has us eagerly anticipating the flick. The concept also appears to be right up each of the stars’ alleys.
Get Hard marks the directorial debut of the man who wrote Tropic Thunder, Etan Cohen. It also stars Alison Brie, Craig T. Nelson and Tip “T.I.” Harris. Look for it in theaters March 27, 2015. While you're in a Hart mood, check out his latest and watch Ride Along online.
The first poster for Get Hard has Kevin Hart getting ready for prison.
The end is near, at least for our friends in Middle Earth and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Peter Jackson's final Hobbit movie has arrived and it is not alone in this weekend before Christmas.
Also landing in cinemas is another third chapter in a movie franchise, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and the musical remake of Annie.
Let's break it down...
The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies: Sure, maybe Jackson did not need to turn JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit into three movies. But, what he did do is allow us to visit Middle Earth again and that is something that is always glorious. The journey of Bilbo comes to a close in this final chapter and the director was right, those final 45 minutes give us a battle scene the likes of which we've never seen.
From the look on his face, what Gandalf is seeing is not so good.
Fans of the series will surely be giddy with joy with this final installment, and the way it creates a bridge to Jackson's The Lord of the Rings is a stroke of brilliance. For more, check out our The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies review.
Night at the Museum Secret of the Tomb: Ben Stiller is back as the leader of the museum residents who come to life when the sun goes down. This time out, the tablet that makes them all come alive is waning in its power. To find out why, the gang must go to England to the British Museum and discover the source of its power.
Robin Wiliams in his final film role, as Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb.
Going to England is a stroke of genius for this film's third chapter as it gives us several things that make this movie: Rebel Wilson as a fellow museum guard, who absolutely kills it, Ben Kingsley as an Egyptian leader who holds the secret to the tomb and Dan Stevens as a come-to-life Sir Lancelot. Stevens is astounding and reminds us once again why he has quickly become one of our favorite actors. As our Night at the Museum: The Secret of the Tomb review reported, fans of this series will love it -- others might not so much.
Annie: Musicals get remade all the time on Broadway and with touring productions, so why not on the big screen? Annie was a sensation when it came out in movie theaters 30 years ago and if there is a musical ripe for a movie remake it is this one.
As our Annie review stated, although the film is about the little orphan Annie, the star is really Jamie Foxx. If there was an actor custom-made for a big screen musical, it is him. He makes this thing worth it.
Movie Fanatic has seen all the films there are to see in 2014 and it’s time to announce our 15 best flicks. Will your favorite make the list?
We’re sure one will, one that is the highest grossing movie of the year that charmed absolutely everyone -- watch Guardians of the Galaxy online and be charmed once again!
Our top 15 is a varied list featuring biopics, Oscar-worthy flicks, sci-fi spectacles (watch Edge of Tomorrow online) and cinematic game-changers.
It also finds a highly anticipated book adaptation (or two, like the one with those riveting Gone Girl quotes!).
It’s been a great year for movies in 2014 and it’s hard to believe that 2015 could be any better (wink wink, we think it will be the best movie year ever!).
Click through and discover the Movie Fanatic top 15 movies of 2014!
Edge of Tomorrow is Tom Cruise's best film in years and achieves something that few sci-fi movies have been able to do of late: Be original! Cruise has to live, die and repeat the experience over and over during a war against alien invaders. He holds the key to victory and won't live to see tomorrow until he gets today right. Oh, and Emily Blunt, well, she just kicks some serious butt.
The first trailer for True Story is here and after the controversy over The Interview, James Franco is probably eager for the discussion (film wise) to change.
Franco stars with Jonah Hill (recently seen uttering those 22 Jump Street quotes) in the, well, True Story of disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel, who was fired for making up part of a story on African teenagers.
He would leave the paper and New York and try to find himself. What he found, well it found him.
Franco is Christian Longo, a man charged with murdering his wife and three kids. When he’s arrested, he says he is Finkel. Yeah, that.
Longo then contacts Finkel and the two forge a friendship that would turn out to be quite explosive before all is said and done.
Look for True Story in theaters in January.
If there was any question whether audiences would show up for a three-part movie series on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, this weekend’s box office answered that once and for all. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies made $90 million since its debut last Wednesday, easily making it the number one movie in the land.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, for the strict Friday through Sunday timeframe, earned $56.2 million.
What’s fascinating about this weekend’s numbers is that the Middle Earth movies from Peter Jackson have now topped the $5 billion in grosses mark and that makes it the second most profitable franchise in history, even more than the Star Wars and Batman movies. Who’s in first? You know… the boy who lived!
Second place belonged to another film series’ third chapter, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. The Ben Stiller-starring comedy banked $17.3 million.
The Annie remake shouldn’t feel too terrible. The third place finisher took in $16.3 million. Meanwhile, fourth place found the previous box office winner, Exodus: Gods and Kings. The Christian Bale-starring flick added another $8 million to bring its total to $38.9 million.
Closing out the top five is the season’s biggest hit (at least until all that Hobbit money is counted!), Mockingjay Part 1. Katniss and her clan of rebels tossed in another $7.8 million to bring its cume ever closer to that coveted $300 million mark. In four weeks, Mockingjay Part 1 has made $289.2 million.
Box Office Top 10:
1. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, $56.2 million
2. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, $17.3 million
3. Annie, $16.3 million
4. Exodus: Gods and Kings, $8.1 million
5. Mockingjay Part 1, $7.8 million
6. Wild, $4.2 million
7. Top Five, $3.8 million
8. Big Hero 6, $3.6 million
9. Penguins of Madagascar, $3.5 million
10. Interstellar, $2.6 million
From the look on his face, what Gandalf is seeing is not so good.
Mike Myers made a triumphant return to Saturday Night Live over the weekend and it was in the form of one of his most popular movie characters ever, Dr. Evil.
See, there’s something about the rearing of those evil heads that brought on the cancelation of The Interview by Sony, that Dr. Evil felt he had to comment.
Check it out in the video below!
Myers has been talking about returning to the world that gave us those Austin Powers quotes, and who knows if this SNL visit will spur interest. That crowd reaction when he appeared was something.
Meanwhile, the group he lampoons, the GOP, has asked Sony to also remove all forms of the scandalous comedy and to never release The Interview on DVD or any other format.
Since it appears it may be a while before anyone can see the movie, check out our 11 things you will never see in The Interview.
Franco and Rogen team up for their latest movie together in The Interview.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. has had an interesting journey to the screen. Although we’re the hugest of Quentin Tarantino fans, we’re actually thinking the film found its perfect director when “T” dropped out and Guy Ritchie stepped in.
The film (based on the popular '60s TV show) has released its first photo, featuring stars Henry Cavill (see him and watch Man of Steel online) and Armie Hammer.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. takes place during the 1960s and follows an unlikely partnership in the middle of the Cold War. Cavill’s CIA agent Napoleon Solo must work together with Russian KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to stop a nefarious criminal group.
Ritchie’s film lands August 14, 2015 and is just one more reason that period is looking to be the best summer movie season ever!
Warner Bros. has also unveiled the film’s first synopsis:
Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) stars as Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Illya Kuryakin in director Guy Ritchie’s action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E., a fresh take on the hugely popular 1960s television series.
Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.
Check out the first photo in the gallery below!
Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill look quite stylish in the first true still from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Everyone has their idea of what a perfect Christmas movie should be. Movie Fanatic is no different, but our tastes run the gamut from the traditional to the subversively non-traditional.
This year we decided to take a look back over Hollywood history and give our readers a holiday treat… the Movie Fanatic Top 15 Christmas Movies Ever Made!
What flicks do you think will make the list? It’s a varied bunch, we promise you that!
Want a hint? Watch Love Actually online, why not, we do every year! There is no further proof of a modern holiday cinematic standard than that Richard Curtis film that was deemed a classic as soon as it arrived.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from us at Movie Fanatic, and why not celebrate with one of our top 15 Christmas movies of all time.
After Vacation and European Vacation, many wondered: Why do a third Vacation movie? But, when we first heard about it and knew its title, Christmas Vacation, the entire world thought, "How perfect!" The Griswold family Christmas would not be any normal holiday. In fact, it would be balls-to-the-wall hilarious. And frankly, where his family might have seen out there the first two movies, this holiday farce hit quite close to home.
Everybody is always taking from Liam Neeson’s Bryan Mills, no?
They took his daughter and as seen in the Taken 3 trailer, they’re taking his wife. But, now, it’s gotten even worse as Fox has released a music video (inspired by the film series) where they’re just taking everything!
Check out the video for Stop Taking My Sh*t!
Mills is back in the film series that you can see how it started when you watch Taken online. This time out, his past is haunting him unlike ever before.
They’ve killed his wife and the LAPD thinks he did it. He’s on the run and people will pay until he finds those responsible and extols his “special set of skills.”
Look for Taken 3 to hit theaters January 9!
The true story that inspired one of the most classic tales of all time, Moby Dick, is told in Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea.
Chris Hemsworth stars as the commander of the whaling ship Essex. In 1819, it was destroyed by the most enormous whale ever recorded. He and his crew would survive 90 days, continually being taunted by the massive beast. Years later, the story would become better known as Moby Dick, with some fictional license, of course.
Warner Bros. has released the latest In the Heart of the Sea trailer and it shows why it is so impressive -- Howard has brought his cinematographer from the outstanding Rush, Anthony Dod Mantle, to this project and it appears that we are in the boat with these men looking death in the face.
In the Heart of the Sea also stars Brendan Gleeson, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw (soon to be seen in Spectre) and Benjamin Walker.
Look for it in theaters March 13, 2015.
The whale looms large below the ship in the first poster for In the Heart of the Sea.
This Is Where I Leave You has landed on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download and we cannot think of a finer time for it to arrive. With the holidays upon us, families across the world will be gathering and no movie nails the modern family of 2014 quite like the Tina Fey and Jason Bateman comedy.
Bateman and Fey are just two of four siblings (Adam Driver and Corey Stoll are the others) who have to head home when the family patriarch passes away. They want to be there for their mother (Jane Fonda), but her plans for memorializing their father seem a bit off. Apparently, his dying wish was that the family would sit Shiva, the Jewish tradition to sit in the house together for one week mourning the lost love one. Friends and family come visit and bring food and the like and share memories.
Only, this family was not Jewish. And that is just the first of many jokes that completely and utterly work.
Forcing this dysfunctional family to sit together (as seen in the This Is Where I Leave You trailer) provides a landscape for dozens of jokes and also a whole lot of heart.
Our theatrical This Is Where I Leave You review could not rave enough about the pairing of Fey and Bateman as two of the most put together of the siblings. Their chemistry is palpable, but what is so fascinating is they project the image of being well put together, but inside are just as much a mess as everyone else gathered to pay homage to the patriarch.
Driver also is quite the presence and we cannot wait to see him in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Also, Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel) is at the helm and gives us his most personal movie to date.
When it comes to bonus features, the two-part The Narrative Voice is our favorite. The first part is an in-depth conversation with Shawn Levy and the writer of the novel and the screenplay, Jonathan Tropper. Getting the visionary’s take on the film is utterly priceless and adds so much insight into the film. You can’t not watch the movie with their audio commentary after that with The Narrative Voice: A Commentary with Shawn Levy and Jonathan Tropper.
If there is one person who steals every scene they’re in, it’s Ben Schwartz as Rabbi Grodner. As you quickly learn in the film, the kids nicknamed him Boner back in the day and now with his leading their Shiva as a full fledged Rabbi, it’s only natural that they call him Rabbi Boner, which of course -- he loves!
Therefore, also a must-see on the This Is Where I Leave You DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download is the featurette The Gospel According to Rabbi Boner. It only leaves us with one question: When will we get a Rabbi Boner solo movie?!
Jason Bateman and Tina Fey play brother and sister who have their differences, but come together when their father dies in This Is Where I Leave You.
Will Smith and Margot Robbie are quite the pair of con artists in the latest Focus trailer.
Focus is the story of Nicky (Smith), a veteran con man who may lose his Focus due to the arrival of another who works in the same world, Jess (Robbie).
He takes her under his wing and the two hatch a plan that could have them sitting pretty. But, how do you trust a con woman or a con man? Could they make it through to the payday without killing each other or getting the other killed?
Focus lands in theaters February 27, 2015 and also stars Rodrigo Santoro and one of our faves, Gerald McRaney.
Someone at the WB must have thought that Robbie and Smith make quite a pair, they lead the Suicide Squad cast!
And don't miss the movie that put Robbie on the map and watch The Wolf of Wall Street online.
Margot flirts with Will and it totally throws him off his game.
Someone with a lot of time on their hands (and we’re so happy they do) has dropped the most epic of superhero trailers on the internet. They’ve mashed up the worlds of DC Comics and Marvel and created the most fantastic of trailers for DC Versus Marvel!
From Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash to Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk and so many more, they’ll all represented in this trailer that makes it all look like they’re in the same movie.
Hey, we can dream, can’t we!
The video comes from someone who is calling themselves Alex Luthor and as we wait for that first Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Captain America: Civil War, Aquaman and Wonder Woman trailers, this will have to do. It is an explosive look, that is for sure.
Many of the above moments are contained in some of our favorite superhero movies. Check out who they are in the slideshow below.
You want to know how good The Dark Knight is? How about it was the first superhero movie to earn an Oscar in a major category! In fact, Heath Ledger's Joker may be the best superhero villain of all time.
When Star Trek 3 lost Roberto Orci as director, the search was on to replace the man who will still definitely be the one penning the film’s screenplay. Now, we know who will step into the director’s chair and it’s someone who knows a little something about building suspense and entertaining thrill rides.
Justin Lin, the veteran Fast and Furious helmer (he directed four of them), has been tapped to tackle the franchise left behind by J.J. Abrams when he exited to go make Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
According to those in the know, the third Star Trek film will finally head into deep space with our favorite crew (led by Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine) starting their five-year mission to go where “no man or woman has gone before.”
The film is likely to hit in 2016, which marks the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
To see where we left off, watch Star Trek Into Darkness online.
