For 30 years, Joel Harlow has been one of Hollywood’s premiere makeup artists, and come Oscar night, he’ll contend for his second Academy Award for his work on Star Trek Beyond, which required him to create more than 50 different alien species. A North Dakota native, Harlow took home a gold statuette for J.J.

The Enterprise is going beyond Star Trek Beyond. With the latest big-screen episode in the vaunted 50-year-old franchise still days away, Paramount announced Monday that there would be fourth installment featuring J.J. Abrams’ rebooted cast.

At London premiere, Zachary Quinto, Justin Lin, express support for decision despite pushback from actor George Takei, who played the character originally
In the summer of 1968, George Takei attended a pool party at the Hollywood Hills home of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry.

I was still closeted, so I did not want to come out to him.”
A week ago, at a Star Trek fan event at Paramount Pictures in Los Angeles that culminated with the dedication of a street on the lot in honor of Leonard Nimoy, Zachary Quinto spoke eloquently of his predecessor as Spock. “In a way I feel like he was more a part of this film than he was of the other two,” Quinto said of Nimoy, who died in February 2015 at age 83, about four months before filming began on Star Trek Beyond.

The first teaser for Star Trek Beyond is full of surprises — not the least of which is that Captain Kirk is a Beastie Boys fan. The new film, directed by The Fast and the Furious franchise veteran Justin Lin from a script co-written by Simon Pegg (Scotty), is engineered to be lighter in tone and heavier on action than its predecessors, Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013).

Alex Jung Star Trek star and Priceline pitchman William Shatner has been vocal about his distaste for the Star Wars franchise for quite some time. Even J.J. Abrams’s spot at the director’s helm for both franchises won’t usher in a new era of peace as long as Shatner is trolling Star Wars fans hard on Twitter.
