Prepping for Launch

Canadian captains are traditional, reallyYou can tell the summer movie season is upon us when suddenly there’s only room for one big movie at a time. This week, it’s J.J. Abrams’ reboot of “Star Trek”, which opens tonight and is kind of awesome.

Here’s my Q&A with Bruce Greenwood, who plays Captain Pike in the reboot. As tempted as I was to get him to answer questions with “yes” or “no”, I thought it would make more sense to let him use complete sentences.

Oh, and tonight’s big Hot Docs event, as far as I’m concerned, is the premiere of “65_RedRoses”, which was the subject of last week’s cover story and remains the best film I’ve seen at the festival. Tickets are still available for Sunday night’s repeat screening at the Bloor; you can order them with the “Buy Tickets” button at the bottom of this page.

You know, if you’re interested.

  1. Just when you think they couldn’t possibly reinvent a 43-year old franchise, they go ahead and do it again.

    There goes the odd-numbered film curse…

    Great flick. 100+ Million over the weekend, accounting for early Thursday returns….

  2. I’ve never bought into the “odd-numbered film curse” thing. Star Trek I and III are both far better movies than IV.
