Star Trek (2008 film)

Star Trek (2008 film)

There's a lot of Star Trek movie info here, I just thought I'd share a little bit of it:

Why a TOS film instead of another TNG film? (or even a new cast and crew)
The short answer is this is the story that Abrams (and his writers) want to tell.

Clearly Paramount had lost faith in Rick Berman and the rest of the Trek team (and possibly casts) and they have quite a lot of faith in Abrams. In addition Abram’s deal with Paramount gives him an unprecedented amount of creative control, including final cut. It is important to note that after the failures of both Star Trek Enterprise and Star Trek Nemesis the franchise was essentially dormant until JJ Abrams made it clear to Paramount that if they wanted him, he wanted Trek. Even though it may be Abrams idea, Paramount probably see it as a ‘get back to basics’ origin story along the lines of Warner’s Batman Begins, MGM’s Bond ‘restart’ Casino Royale and Fox’s 3 Star Wars prequels.

Show Harold the Money?

Watch with Kristin - Kristen is reporting about the possible return of "Michael" to LOST.

Brandi in Taos, New Mexico: What's the latest on Lost? Will Michael come back? Please say yes!
I can tell you that producers definitely have made an offer for Harold Perrineau to return in the new season, which they also did last season (Harold declined because he was working on a pilot). Back then, Harold was offered a truckload of money. Now, sources tell me he wants that same truckload. The question is whether he will receive it—hence, the holdup. I, for one, am happy to empty out my piggy bank and couch cushions and contribute to the H.P. Fund, for I miss him so. Who's with me?!

'Lost' won't end 'with a blackout'

'Lost' won't end 'with a blackout' - The Hollywood Reporter talks about the ending of LOST with Carlton Cuse & Damon Lindelof. Also gives some clues for next season.

While "Lost" viewers will have to wait till next year to see the next TV episodes, Cuse and Lindelof said in the fall there will be a series of "Lost" mobisodes featuring the entire cast and rolling out first on Verizon Wireless and then probably appearing on They said they're keenly aware of the eight-month gap between last month's finale and the return of "Lost" at the beginning of next year.

"How do you keep the show alive in the minds of the audience in that time?" Cuse asked. They're also planning to go back to San Diego's Comic-Con International, where the show was launched, to address May's Season 3 finale and what they had in mind.

Cuse said the mobisodes, about 90 seconds each, will give the hardcore "Lost" viewer more information that they probably weren't going to get through the show itself. What it won't be, they said, was a mini version of "Lost."

Who's in the Coffin? (SPOILER)

I have been thinking about that coffin and what we know. I think based on the available evidence a lot of people are saying that it is Michael in that coffin. We know he's from New York and has a son. I think the person in the coffin is someone that we have not meet yet. We'll just have to wait and see, and depending on the timeline of the show over the next couple of seasons, we might be waiting a long time to find out.

LOST producers and the end of the Sopranos

Reaction - Sopranos Ending - New York Times:

Damon Lindelof took a break from the banjo long enough to talk about the controversial ending of the last episode of the Sopranos:

"Damon Lindelof, one of the creators of the ABC hit show “Lost,” another series whose viewers have high expectations about quality, said: “I’ve seen every episode of the series. I thought the ending was letter-perfect.”

Like millions of other viewers, Mr. Lindelof said he was initially taken aback by the quick cut to a blank screen and thought his cable had gone out at that crucial moment. He even checked his TiVo machine and saw that it was still running several minutes beyond the end. When he checked the scene again, he said, he noted “the scene cut off right as Meadow is coming through the door and right at the word ‘stop’ in the Journey song.”

He said: “My heart started beating. It had been racing throughout the last scene. Afterward I went to bed and lay next to my wife, awake, thinking about it for the next two hours. And I just thought it was great. It did everything well that ‘Godfather III’ did not do well.”
Carlton Cuse also chimed in, pant less no doubt, about the ending of the Sopranos:

For the producers of “Lost,” who have declared an official finale in three more seasons, the conclusion of “The Sopranos” carried special weight. “There was immediate blow back for me,” said Carlton Cuse, Mr. Lindelof’s creative partner on the show. “A sense of fear ran through my veins, thinking that we are going to be in this position,” he said, adding, “we know the end is coming in 48 short episodes.”

He had admitted to some initial frustration with the ending of “The Sopranos.” “But it settled well with me,” Mr. Cuse said. “In that blank screen, there was a certain kind of purity in the choice Chase made to make it the fulcrum of the ending.”

Mr. Lindelof said that as daunting as it is to think of the expectations of ending a popular piece of entertainment, there was also a bit of benefit. “If you feel that everybody is going to hate it anyway, no matter what you do,” he said, “there’s a certain liberation in writing it.”

LOST in 250 Words or Less?

Emmy submission includes an essay - Times Union - Albany NY

Carlton Cuse, executive producer of ABC's 'Lost,' said he would submit an essay but he doubts it'll do much to improve Emmy prospects for his complex, serialized desert-island thriller.

'I don't know how you can even begin to explain 'Lost' in 250 words or less,' Cuse wrote me in an e-mail. 'We're going to have to rely on the fact that members of the TV academy are TV watchers and hopefully will have seen other episodes of the show.'"

Watch with Kristin - LOST Season 4

Kristin has come inside info from Damon Lindelof, that she shared a couple of days ago here: Watch with Kristin - Spoiler Chat

"From Sandy in Oregon: On Lost, what will happen to Desmond after Charlie's death?

Excellent question! And I have the answer from the man who knows bestest—Damon Lindelof. He tells me, 'Desmond will have to deal with the aftereffects and the guilt of it. He will question whether or not Charlie would have made this sacrifice had he not told him that it was what he was going to do. He will question the role he played in Charlie’s death.' So, it sounds like big sexy Dezzie is haunted by Charlie's passing, as many of us fans are!"
