  • Leonard Nimoy, Spock of ‘Star Trek,’ Dies at 83

    Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles.

    When Captain Picard reveals his unfortunate duty of informing Spock that his father, Sarek, has died, Data posits that Spock – as a Vulcan – would surely see death as the logical conclusion of his father’s illness. Picard explains that death is never that easy, not even for a Vulcan.

Shailene Woodley once again plays Tris, a special snowflake with more than one personality trait. That makes her a threat to the corrupt system, run by Jeanine (Kate Winslet).

  • ‘Focus’ Trailer: Will Smith Will Be Very Rich or Very Dead

    Focus is only a few days away from opening, but that’s still enough time to squeeze in one last trailer. Will Smith and Margot Robbie play two con artists with a romantic history — which proves quite inconvenient when she shows up just as he’s trying to pull off his biggest con yet.
