Star Trek: Discovery Showrunner Explains Why Spock Had To Appear In Season 2

Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery didn’t feature any of the franchise’s most iconic figures, but it did encourage connections with them through the character of Lieutenant Michael Burnham, explained as the hitherto-unknown adoptive human sister of Spock. Now, season 2’s going ahead and bringing the Vulcan on board the U.S.S. Discovery, with Ethan Peck becoming the third actor to play the Enterprise’s science officer.

So, why was the decision made to include Spock in the show’s sophomore run? Trek Movie caught up with showrunner Alex Kurtzman who explained what got him so excited about featuring the character, and it’s all to do with how the prequel nature of Discovery allows the series to get a look at Spock before he became… well, Spock. Or rather, the person we know from The Original Series.

“What gets me so excited about the story that we

Rebecca Romijn Will Lead a Group of Satanists in Fangoria's New Horror Film Satanic Panic

It’s great to see Fangoria back in action and producing horror movies! I really enjoyed their last film Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich. It really captured the greatness of those old-school B-horror films.

Their next movie is a horror comedy called Satanic Panic, which is said to include “a healthy dash of imaginative gore.” Rebecca Romijn (Star Trek: Discovery, X-Men) is set to star in the Chelsea Stardust-directed film.

The plot follows a pizza delivery girl (Hayley Griffith) at the end of her financial rope who has to fight for her life — and her tips — when her last order of the night turns out to be high society Satanists (led by Romijn) in need of a virgin sacrifice.

Sounds like it will be a silly fun horror film! Romijn and Griffith will be joined by Ruby Modine (Happy Death Day), Arden Myrin (Insatiable), Jerry O’Connell (Carter), Aj Bowen

Trailers of the Week: ‘Pet Sematary,’ ‘Aladdin,’ ‘Glass’

This week: a quick, blink-and-you-miss-it glimpse of Disney’s whole new world of a live-action movie; sneak peeks at where Star Trek: Discovery and Making a Murderer‘s second chapters may be taking us; and not one but two extended early looks at a pair of major horror films hitting theaters in 2019. Here’s your best-of trailer round-up from the past week.

Aladdin

First off, Disney, lay off on the evil reverb-y voice (overkill much?). Second, Mena Massoud looks like a good Aladdin, in the nanoseconds that we see him.

Captain Marvel gets an updated logo as Brie Larson denies seven-film contract rumours

Following the release of the first trailer last month, Marvel Studios has now unveiled a slightly updated logo for its first superhero offering of 2019 – and the first female-led instalment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Captain Marvel.

Meanwhile, in another piece of Captain Marvel news, actress Brie Larson has taken to social media to debunk a rumour claiming that she’s signed up for a seven-picture deal as Carol Danvers…

Counterpoint: this is not true https://t.co/aDlKZu8Rqo

— Brie Larson (@brielarson) October 11, 2018

Marvel typically ties its talent down to multi-picture deals, ranging from six films through to nine (see Samuel L. Jackson and Sebastian Stan), so it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise if Larson was contracted for a potential seven films, particularly as Captain Marvel looks set to become a major part of the Avengers and the Marvel Cinematic Universe heading into Phase Four.

Ethan Peck Explains What Spock Brings To Star Trek: Discovery Season 2

He’s got the ears, he’s got the beard, and soon, Ethan Peck will be introduced to Trekkies as the fresh-faced Spock of Star Trek: Discovery season 2. And frankly, we couldn’t be more excited.

The world-famous Vulcan is the kind of character who transcends Star Trek to become something else entirely – a legend – and during his appearance at New York Comic Con, Peck touched base on the lengthy audition process, and what it was like to wean inspiration from the late, great Leonard Nimoy. The real legend.

The Spock in The Original Series is sort of the light at the end of the tunnel. So, we have to start Spock in a place where he is becoming who we see on the Enterprise with Kirk. I’ve done a ton of research and read the [Leonard Nimoy] biography and watched The Original Series. I like the idea that

Video Interview: Jason Isaacs, India Eisley, and Writer/Director Assaf Bernstein Talk Look Away

While Look Away might dive into a lot of teenage-minded subjects, the themes of isolation and insecurity at the center of the psychological thriller’s narrative are easily relatable to anyone at any age. Starring India Eisley as the film’s protagonist Maria, we watch as the awkward and overly shy teen grapples with her identity when she decides to let her doppelgänger take control of her life, which ends up resulting in some tragic circumstances.

Written and directed by Assaf Bernstein, Look Away also stars Jason Isaacs, Mira Sorvino, Penelope Mitchell, and Harrison Gilbertson, and it arrives in limited theaters this Friday, courtesy of Vertical Entertainment.

Earlier this week, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Bernstein, as well as with co-stars Eisley and Isaacs, about working together on Look Away as well as how the film’s story taps into the everyday isolation most of us feel

Star Trek: Discovery Will Explain Why Spock Never Mentions His Sister

The biggest change that Star Trek: Discovery made to the Trek canon is the addition of Lieutenant Michael Burnham, the lead character of the show who’s actually the adoptive sister of Spock. Though a human, she was taken in by the Vulcan ambassador Sarek, most known as the pops of the Enterprise’s science officer. Though it firmly tied Michael into the established lore, it did create one tiny hiccup: why the heck had Spock never mentioned her before?

Though its visuals are perhaps more inspired by the Kelvin timeline movies, Discovery is firmly set in the original canon of the Trek shows and movies as it takes place 10 years before the events of The Original Series kicks off. Season 1 left fans to worry about these discrepancies, but the upcoming sophomore run seems to be keen to hunker down and sort out its place in the continuity.

Star Trek: Discovery's Mary Wiseman On Tilly, Short Treks, and Food Fights

Kayti Burt Oct 11, 2018

We talked to Star Trek: Discovery's Mary Wiseman about her role in the first Short Treks mini-episode.

Sylvia Tilly (Mary Wiseman) is one of Star Trek: Discovery's most likeable and relatable characters, which is why it's no surprise that Tilly is the focus of the franchise's first of four planned Short Treks, mini-episodes set in the world of Discovery.

In "Runaway," available to watch via CBS All-Access now, Tilly encounters an alien stowaway named Po (Yadira Guevara-Prip) who has come aboard Discovery illegally. Over the course of the 15-minute episode, Tilly helps Po stay off the radar and decide what she wants from her future. In the process, Tilly's own future ambitions are affirmed. Basically, it's great.

Den of Geek had the chance to speak to Mary Wiseman last week about how "Runaway" connects to the larger Star Trek: Discovery universe, doing voice work for

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2 Trailer Introduces Spock and More

The New York Comic-Con panel for Star Trek: Discovery provided the perfect opportunity for CBS to unveil a new look at the upcoming  season.

Rather than a clip, CBS delivered an extensive Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 trailer that runs the same length as a feature film trailer. That's fitting because the high production values introduced in Season 1 as equivalent to those found in films remain intact for Season 2.

There are three big revelations for Star Trek fans in the trailer. First, Klingons with hair can be seen following the Season 1 hairless and less nostalgic Klingons with their own agenda.

Speaking of Klingons, you'll clearly see a fan-favorite D7 class battle cruiser make its debut.

The big stinger comes at the end with the reveal of a young Spock. He doesn't speak -- yet -- but it's great to see a Star Trek legend return.

The Internet Reacts To Star Trek: Discovery’s Bearded Spock

This past weekend at New York Comic Con, a new trailer for the upcoming second season of Star Trek: Discovery debuted, teasing the intriguing storyline that’ll fuel the sophomore run of the CBS All Access series as well as giving us our first looks at some of the fresh faces joining the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery.

Of course, the biggest talking point coming out of the new preview was Ethan Peck’s version of the one and only Spock. As seen at the end of the trailer, Peck’s Spock is depicted with a healthy beard. Typically, seeing the character with facial hair means we’re dealing with his evil doppelganger from the Mirror Universe, but we’re fairly certain that this one’s the real deal and his unshaven state is just because he’s stranded in space on his quest to track down the mysterious “red angel.

Star Trek: Discovery’s Rebecca Romijn Opens Up On Playing Number One

Star Trek: Discovery season 2 will introduce a number of classic characters into the mix. Those taking the spotlight are Ethan Peck’s young (bearded!) Spock and Inhumans star Anson Mount’s Captain Christopher Pike. However, let’s not forget that Rebecca Romijn – most well known as the original Mystique in the X-Men movies – is also joining the ensemble cast as Pike’s right-hand woman from the U.S.S. Enterprise, Number One.

Trek fans will know that Number One initially appeared in The Original Series‘ pilot “The Cage,” where she was played by Majell Barrett, who happened to be the wife of creator Gene Roddenberry. While speaking with Et, Romijn admitted that she didn’t know the importance of the character in that way but still leaped at the chance to play someone who would already be iconic to followers of the franchise.
