Warlock (1959)

As the first wave of ‘adult’ westerns began to fade, 1959 gave us a burst of genuinely adult stories about the famed lawless towns of the frontier. Henry Fonda is at his moody best in a replay of his earlier Wyatt Earp, de-mythologized as just one more self-oriented opportunist in a land where even lawmen have an angle to play. But Fonda’s gun skills are impressive, and his deadly Clay Blaisedell is halfway to becoming the soulless ‘Frank’ from Once Upon a Time in The West. Edward Dmytryk almost rights his capsized directing career, and Robert Alan Aurthur’s screenplay delivers both an intense drama, & great gunslinging action.

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Movie is Still "a Very Big Possibility"

After director S.J. Clarkson’s Star Trek 4 was shelved because Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth dropped out of the project, the Star Trek film franchise has been in limbo. The shows being developed at CBS All Access are moving fast, but there doesn’t seem to be any momentum on the film front.

Well, it seems like the film franchise is about to pick up some momentum with the R-rated Quentin Tarantino Star Trek project. While talking to /Film about the new extended edition of The Hateful Eight on Netflix, the filmmaker said that his Star Trek project is still a possibility and that he’s going to start working on it again after he’s done with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

“It’s a very big possibility. I haven’t been dealing with those guys for a while cause I’ve been making my movie. But we

‘Star Trek: Discovery’: How Tig Notaro Best Embodied Starfleet’s Values in Season 2
[Editor’s note: The following contains mild spoilers for “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 2 Episode 14, “Such Sweet Sorry, Part 2.”]

Star Trek” has a history of bringing in unexpected stars, all drawn to the franchise by their passion for the source material. And with the latest iteration, “Star Trek: Discovery,” that tradition has continued in a number of respects, but none more interesting than the casting of Tig Notaro as engineer Jett Reno, introduced in the first episode of Season 2 and who proved to be a delightful presence over the course of the following episodes.

Notaro is best known as a stand-up comic whose riffs on her cancer battle and pop culture ephemera eventually led to the critically-acclaimed Amazon series “One Mississippi,” which ran for two seasons before its unfortunate cancelation. Her low-key but raw and honest work in “One Mississippi” was not one that might obviously lead to an appearance on the newest edition of the sci-fi icon, but she

Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek Movie is Still in Development at Paramount Pictures

No long ago we reported that Paramount Pictures shelved director S.J. Clarkson’s Star Trek 4 after Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth dropped out. Well, in case you were wondering what the status of Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek project is, it’s still moving forward!

The New York Times recently did a profile on the new leadership at Paramount Pictures and Wyck Godfrey, the president of the film division confirmed that Tarantino’s Star Trek was still happening and when talking about bringing up the idea of that to people he says, “Suddenly people’s eyes light up, Yours just did.”

There aren’t really any story details on the film yet, but The Revenant screenwriter Mark L. Smith is writing the script. Karl Urban also shared some thoughts on the film saying that it's "bananas".

Star Trek: Why We Can't Wait to Go Back to the 24th Century

Chris Allcock Nov 12, 2018

Captain Picard will return to our screens in a new Star Trek series, but is he all that’s needed to rekindle the Next Generation flame?

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

Even with the success of the divisive Star Trek: Discovery ringing fresh in our ears, CBS’s bold declaration that it was not only renewing the show for a second season, but also investigating a staggering five additional entries in the Star Trek canon, couldn’t help but raise a few Spock-styled eyebrows. Wisely, the network decided to allay fears of franchise fatigue with a piece of news that seemed designed to elicit good will, especially from fans who remained sceptical of alternative takes on the Original Series era: Sir Patrick Stewart is set to return as Jean-Luc Picard.

The response to this news was, by and large, incredibly positive. Articles and videos

Karl Urban talks Quentin Tarantino’s “bananas” Star Trek plans, confirms NuTrek crew and R-rating

Earlier this year, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced that it would be moving forward with its plans for Star Trek 4, before then shifting its attention to Quentin Tarantino’s pitch once the acclaimed filmmaker finishes up with his latest movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Well, those plans have since hit a stumbling block, with Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk) and Chris Hemsworth (George Kirk) walking away from the negotiating table after failing to reach a deal to reprise their roles in Star Trek 4., leaving the status of the next movie in question.

Karl Urban, who plays Bones in the rebooted series, has recently stated that he’s hopeful both Pine and Hemsworth will work out a deal for Star Trek 4, and now the New Zealand actor has been talking to fans at the Trekonderoga Convention about Tarantino’s proposed film.

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Star Trek’ Is ‘Bananas’ and Needs an R-Rating to Show the ‘Horror of Space,’ Says Karl Urban
Few details are known about Quentin Tarantino’s “Star Trek” movie, which is to say that rumors abound. Karl Urban, who appears in the current “Star Trek” franchise and is expected to be in Tarantino’s as well, is here to offer a few key details. According to him, Tarantino “went in to [producer] J.J. [Abrams]’s offices and pitched him an idea for a ‘Star Trek movie.’ I know a little bit about what that is, and it’s bananas.”

Bananas how? Allow him to elaborate: “You shouldn’t worry that it is going to be full of obscenity and stuff. He wants an R-rating to really make those beats of consequence land. If it’s not PG, if someone gets sucked out into space, which we have all seen before, we might see them get disemboweled first…It allows some some breadth…gives him some leeway to do that,

Karl Urban Discusses Quentin Tarantino's R-Rated Star Trek Film Saying It Will Capture the "Horror of Space"

Thanks to a recent interview with Karl Urban, we now know what his thoughts are on Quentin Tarantino's R-rated vision for Star Trek. He seems to know a little something about what the filmmaker's story will entail because Urban says it's "bananas". When talking to Trek Movie, he explained:

"Quentin Tarantino went in to [producer] J.J. [Abrams]’s offices and pitched him an idea for a Star Trek movie. I know a little bit about what that is, and it’s bananas. So, they are writing that as well. He is currently making a film with Brad Pitt and and [Leonardo] DiCaprio [Once Upon a Time in Hollywood]. So, it is going to be a year away from finishing that. So, it would be really rad to get to make a film with him. That would be a dream come true, he is definitely an auteur. Whether you like his films or not,

Karl Urban Explains The Challenges Of Playing Bones In Star Trek

Any Star Trek fan will tell you that the heart of The Original Series is the entertaining friendship between Captain Kirk and his trusted first mate Spock. Sure enough, this is something the rebooted movies have captured very well through Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto’s own version of the unlikely human/Vulcan bromance. What’s unfortunate, though, is that they’ve arguably forgotten the third wheel in this friendship who was invaluable to the team dynamic in Tos.

Of course, we’re talking about Leonard “Bones” McCoy, who was always a joy to watch as he usually served as the voice of reason. This looked to be replicated in the first reboot movie, too, as Karl Urban was such a spot-on replacement for DeForest Kelly. Unfortunately, though, he wasn’t given a whole lot to do in the first two films – particularly Into Darkness.

Thankfully, Beyond served him much better,

Tarantino Wants R-Rated Star Trek to Capture the Horrors of Space
It sounds like the Tarantino Star Trek Movie, should it ever actually get made, will be absolutely insane and covered in space guts, according to Karl Urban. The franchise is in an interesting place right now. Star Trek Beyond wasn't nearly as much of a hit as Paramount was hoping for and that has caused some issues with Star Trek 4, with both Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth possibly not returning over financial negotiations. But Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek is still being developed and Urban says he actually knows a bit about it.

Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto and a few others have spoken publicly since the news of Quentin Tarantino's Star Trek movie broke. Though, none of them claim to really know much about it. However, Karl Urban recently appeared at Trekonderoga and, speaking on the subject, the actor who currently plays Bones in the franchise dished what he could

Karl Urban Explains Why Tarantino’s Star Trek Needs An R-Rating

While Star Trek 4 seems to have hit a brick wall, another – much more unlikely – Star Trek film is going ahead instead. Quentin Tarantino has pledged his commitment to helm an R-rated film set in the Kelvin timeline of the Trek universe, complete with the modern movie cast.

While this is an exciting development for fans of the director, Trek lovers might be somewhat apprehensive about the Pulp Fiction filmmaker getting his hands on the beloved sci-fi franchise. Is Samuel L. Jackson going to stop by and drop a load of F-bombs? Is Michael Madsen going to chop a Klingon’s ear off?

Karl Urban – who’s played Bones since 2009’s Star Trek – has now assured fans that they don’t have to worry about Tarantino using the movie’s R-rating to turn it into expletive-filled torture porn. According to the actor, the director’s only pursuing a mature rating so
