Extras! 30 March 2015

3 min read


Welcome to The Extras! A daily dose of all the smaller movie related news, clips and just plain cool stuff that you might have missed!

  • Dear One Direction fans, Billy Zane has no idea who you are or why you’re cutting yourselves for him, but he appreciates all the concern you’ve shown him/Zayn on social media.

  • Poster of the day: Vertigo


  • And speaking of Batman…

  • When it comes to sequels to blockbuster movies, the tendency is always to keep getting bigger, but according to Simon Pegg, the upcoming Star Trek 3 will be looking for inspiration on something smaller: the small screen. Pegg, who will not only be reprising his role as Scotty for the third time, but now also taking on screenwriting duties on the Justin Lin directed threequel, says that the upcoming movie will be taking many of its cues from the classic TV show (including its split infinitives!):
“[STAR TREK 3 will] take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. [It is] about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know. Where no man has gone before — where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a more enlightened generation. But yeah, that’s the mood at the moment.”
  • Confused about the new Star Wars “Expanded Universe” and its 20 new books to be launched this year and how they all fit together chronologically? Then this new timeline infographic should shed some light on what you need to read next.
