STAR TREK: Lower Decks season 1 is coming to DVD and blu ray on May 18. There are tons of special features. And if you enjoy collecting special packaging editions, there will be a steelbook version as well.

There is another new Star Trek movie in development. Many false starts have been reported, but this time it may happen. Kalinda Vazques has been tapped to write the next movie. There are no plot or cast details, but if it happens, this will be the first Trek film written by a woman.

The Alamo Drafthouse theatre chain has filed for bankruptcy. They have also closed 3 locations. There is wild speculation on what this will mean for the company, but no one is certain, especially with a buyout quite likely.

Kevin Feige is working on the next X-Men film. Marvel has been slowly incorporating mutants into their cinematic universe. The Mutants could be the next film to feature the X-Men. Speculation is running wild!

Australian author Matthew Reilly is turning to directing. He has been hired by Netflix to direct Interceptor. Reilly is known for his fast-paced action-adventure novels and the upcoming film promises to be more of the same.

Christopher Lloyd in the news! He has 2 exciting projects on the horizon. In Discovery+’s upcoming documentary, Lloyd will be tracking down the other 6 time machines in Expedition: Back to the Future. The 4 part doc will hit the streaming service on March 15.
