STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS has grossed $1.16 billion worldwide which cost $350million to make. Its so good people are seeing it three, four times - Go see it!

The movies world premiere took place at Los Angeles on Dec 14th with a razzmatazz of invited guests, Stormtroopers, Chewy, R2D2, CP3O, J.J. Abrams, George Lucas and legions of fans swarming up to the red carpet. The films movie director J.J. Abrams even got in on the action pausing to take a selfie of himself with some fangirls.

VERDICT? I must confess, the sheer size and attention to detail is amazing. The movie is mixed with an exciting new and spectacular old feeling which has made it a hit. So big in fact, Mark Hamill is warning fans not to fall for fake autographs. Heres a great shot of Star Wars 501st Legion taken in Singapore. Look how low pitched their rifles are slung.

 I guess Vaders Stormtroopers can't shoot it out with rebel factions at the opening première. Vaders advancing legion gives the Jedi a chance to break a leg and get the best front row movie seats.

 Hey these guys aren't Jedi's! What happened to the good guys? Were you one of Jedi or the Sith? Did you wear your uniform? Spot any Trekkies hiding in the audience?

May the Force be with You -  Live Long and Prosper.

Star Trek Beyond's Trailer


Star Trek Beyond's - trailer 1 is here, finally. Its showtime with the new USS Enterprise NCC 1701 crew tearing up some alien world and btw, they've gone and wrecked the bl**dy ship again!!! Earlier in the year we speculated the skunk lady (Sofia Boutella) would be contending with Star Trek's fearsome villains, WELL, we were right!

Here's Star Trek's killer gazelle fighting a Jem Hadar type alien in Star Trek Beyond. Doesn't she look great?

"This is where the frontier pushes back." Heres Idris Elba's character "Kraal" speaking from the chaos.  The dude actually looks like Satan.. (I reckon the reason Worf was so popular is because he looked real, fans liked the moving face and identified with the Klingon.) Kraal is a different alien altogether so you'll have to decide.


So now we've no ship, no crew and a bewildered Captain Kirk pondering his faith having stuffed up command for a 3rd movie in a row.

Seriously, does new age Kirk know what hes doing? LOL I sure hope Kirk doesn't turn out like Captain Nesmith in Galaxy Quest. Remember him? Hilarious - which likely points at where Star Trek Beyond is going into the future -

The world première of the film kicks off Star Trek's 50th anniversary celebrations on July 22nd 2016. Is Idris Elba's Kraal on a thrill to kill spree? Is it written in the stars for the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 to turn into a blazing fireball?

Will Keenser save the day? - I sure hope so, trekkers. Live long and Prosper!
