Actor Jason Isaacs, who plays Captain Gabriel Lorca in the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery, recently survived a small Twitter battle with some hardcore Trek fans and…maybe…William Shatner as well?

The inciting incident was a NY Daily News interview with Isaacs in which he was quoted as saying:

“I don’t mean to sound irreverent when I say I don’t care about the die-hard Trek fans. I only ‘don’t care’ about them in the sense that I know they’re all going to watch anyway. I look forward to having the fun of them being outraged, so they can sit up all night and talk about it with each other.”

Mission Impossible 6 director Christopher McQuarrie recently clarified the extent of Tom Cruise’s injuries suffered during a stunt for the film. Don’t worry, folks: Tom is going to be okay, but he has a broken ankle and has to heal. That means: a temporary delay to the film.

McQuarrie told Empire:

Tom is great. He’s in very good spirits. He’s feeling great about the movie. Very excited in general. When I went to see him, the first thing he said when I walked in the room was, ‘dude, my ankle’s broken’. Without missing a beat, I said, ‘there’s a silver lining to this cloud. We just don’t know what it is yet.’

I’ve decided that I’m going to cover British TV here—I mean…outside of Doctor Who—because I really like it & it’s my site so what the fuck.

I am MAD about David Mitchell and Robert Webb—you know, Peep Show, The Mitchell Webb Look, Magicians, their radio stuff, etc. So I am as pleased as FUCK for this new comedy from Channel 4: Back:

And so here we are at the start another “universe-shaking” multi-issue comic book event that will Change Everything As We Know It. Does Dark Nights: Metal #1 deliver in its promise to shake up the DC Universe down to its very foundations? And does it live up to its two highly-ambitious “prologues,” Dark Days: The Forge and Dark Days: The Casting?

Spoilers, obviously, ahead!

Hunger Games And Twilight Theme Park To Open In South Korea

The Twilight franchise may no longer be the New Hotness, and Hunger Games is still popular but certainly not enough to open up a theme park or anything. However, in South Korea both properties are still super-big, and yes—a gigantic outdoor theme park devoted to Twilight and Hunger Games is being built there.

Lionsgate Movie World will be 1.3 million square feet devoted to seven “movie zones”—each zone dedicated to a specific Lionsgate film. In addition to Twilight & Hunger Games, the movie Now You See Me will also be represented (which is odd to me, but maybe that small franchise is big in Korea as well), as well as a zone dedicated to the studio’s upcoming Robin Hood project.

Well, this is awkward.

Ben Affleck is currently doing publicity for the upcoming Justice League, touting his appearance in the movie as “a much more traditional Batman.” But Ben’s brother Casey might have accidentally spilled the beans on his future (or non-future) with the franchise.

I really dug this trailer for Rememory, the Peter Dinklage starrer which is also one of Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin’s last movies. The film, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, features Game Of Thrones actor Dinklage as a private detective investigating the murder of a scientific pioneer who has created a machine that can extract troublesome memories.
