2016.  Did any of us think we’d live this long?  Yeah, probably.  We’re Geeks, not morbid.

So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious?  See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.

Ok, who had 2015 on the board for “Beastie Boys song in a Star Trek trailer”?  Great choice though.  Love “Sabotage”.  I wonder if they are trying to tell us something?  Hmmm…

Check out the trailer and some miscellaneous thoughts after the break.

Tom Recommends: The Cornetto Trilogy

Gabbing Geek Tom Recommends v2Among the many interesting “what if’s” that we can ask in regards to the recent Ant-Man, there is the question of how the movie would have turned out had the original director, Edgar Wright, finished the movie he’d worked on for so long.  Wright still got a story and script credit for the work, and had parted ways due to some sort of creative differences with Marvel Films.  Wright had been linked to the project for ages, well before The Avengers hit the big screen, such that many hoped or assumed Wright’s longtime friend and collaborator Simon Pegg might have been cast as Hank Pym.

Why would anyone assume that?  Well, you’d need to see the Cornetto Trilogy to get that.

Star Trek 3 to Boldly Go Where They’ve Been Before

There are a lot of comparisons to Star Wars with the first two films. People said JJ Abrams really just made Star Wars films out of the Star Trek universe (Disney must have agreed he knew how to make a SW film…). Well, now it looks like the Trek team wants to turn the ship around.

I’m Givin’ Her All She’s Got, Captain! And Now You’re Asking Me For A Blimey Script?

How the Trek cast and crew feels without JJ.
How the Trek cast and crew feels without JJ.

The revolving space door that is the rebooted Star Trek universe now has a new co-writer.  Scotty himself, Simon Pegg will co-write Star Trek 3 with television producer Doug Jung. I loved Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, so Pegg is no stranger to pleasing the Geekdom. But the constant upheaval around this project since Abrams left to do some Disney movie, is not giving me very many warm and fuzzy feelings. Hopefully they can get back on track and continue the resurgence of the new Trek films.
