‘Star Trek’ trailer
J J Adams take on the 11th film in the franchise reportedly veers away from the Trekkie canon. The cast looks promising: Simon Pegg plays Scotty and Winona Ryder somehow makes perfect sense as Spock’s mum.
Shatner does Pulp
William Shatner’s forays into music received mixed reviews, but this cover of Pulp’s “Common People” – accompanied here by an animation – will warm the hearts of even the most cynical Trekkie haters.
