Here in the deep cold of winter, I thought I’d feature a few scenes from one of my favorite movies of all time to cozy up with. I think I’ve memorized most of the dialogue in The Lion in Winter, (1968) if you’ve never seen it , rent or Netflix it now! Every performance s sterling. Especially O’Toole and Hepburn.
Yesterday , January 8th, would have been Elvis’ Birthday — in that spirit, here’s a couple of videos showing the Elvis/Star Trek connection! (Well, some of the Elvis movies and Star Trek were both made by Paramount, so that’s not too surprising!) I always thought Kirk was the Elvis of the Galaxy!

I wasn’t going to post anything new until Monday, but just came across this!!! Squeee! Here’s the Japanese version of the preview for the new movie Star Trek Into Darkness coming in May! I ‘m posting the Japanese version because it has a touch more footage, most notably it appears Spock’s hand giving the Vulcan salute through glass to… someone ( reference to “The Wrath of Khan?”)
The plot of this one seems to be someone evil planning vengeance against Kirk and crew, just a matter of speculating who this bad guy is. A lot have suggested that it’s Khan, but after closer examination, I think it’s Gary Mitchell from Where No Man Has Gone Before, which is an exciting prospect to me because I always felt bad that Mitchell had to die in the original. Another hint? The pretty blond crew-member looks like Dr. Elizabeth Dehner from that original pilot. ( I thought it might have been Yeoman Rand at first, but she’s wearing science blue!)
Oh man, I can’t wait! Questions? Comments? Let us speculate!
I’m a great fan of old movies, I watch TCM whenever I can, and I am especially a fan of old movie poster art. After doing my StarTreKomics for several months now, (and yes, there will be more) all the collage work I had been doing suddenly lit a compact fluorescent bulb over my head. Hey! Trek has always been a great adventure/romance/drama in the most cinematic way, and wouldn’t it be fun to re-imagine episodes as if they were weekly serials at the movies? Of course, they’d need a thrilling poster to attract attention. hope to do all 79 episodes, but for now, here is the first in my series of Trek Episode Movie posters; Ladies and Gentleman of all species, here is “The Cage” -Be sure to click on the image to see in in it’s full size glory!
