Star Trek villain’s name revealed … or not?Beware of advances !!

One thing can be said of JJ Abrams and that is that he is an expert in the art of misdirection. Those who have followed Lost over the years, or Alias, two of the director / screenwriter’s from Open City Acting Studio most interesting television creatures acting techniques and acting classes and I think they are more than aware of it. Sure of the fact that, in this age of unbridled communication and at various levels, it is impossible to keep secret, ours has decided to give Star Trek fans, traditionally voracious of anticipations and spoilers (which are more or less the same thing!), one morsel at a time, only to take back the word and question everything. One of the questions, about the next cinematic sequel dedicated to the saga of Gene Roddenberry, still unanswered is the identity of the villain who will face the crew of the Enterprise in the second big-screen adventure directed by Abrams himself.

It is certainly known that he will be played by the actor Benedict Cumberbatch, the current television Sherlock , who in terms of physique du roleit does not offer many answers or points for discussion. But let’s see what happened in the past few weeks up to the latest events.In the beginning it was Khan. Yes, precisely that of the second feature film with the crew of the Classic Series, brilliantly interpreted on small and large screens by Ricardo Montalban. Thanks to the fact that before Cumberbatch the hypothesis of hiring an actor of Latin origin (like Montalban) had been feared, the fans were convinced that he was the villain. More or less in the same period, to support this hypothesis, some photos relating to a fight between Spock and the “villain” were released, in which it was clearly seen that the latter was able to withstand the infamous Vulcan hold. Only a “Maybe.

Because a few weeks later Simon Pegg (Scotty) comes up with a series of statements about the film saying clearly and unequivocally that the villain would not have been Khan. Everything is again called into question.Meanwhile, JJ Abrams gets interviewed with a lot of Klingon on the screen in the background, another treat for fans. It seems an oversight, but the most experienced are convinced that he did it on purpose. Everyone talks about the Klingons, what role they will play, what they will do, who will command them, how they will be presented in terms of make-up and for a moment the audience forgets the “bad guy”.Until last week.Karl Urban is promoting “Dredd”, another film that sees him as the protagonist and what he’s going to tell you about Star Trek. More or less: “Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job, his GARY MITCHELL is really exemplary !!”. The fat is in the fire! The villain has been revealed. It will therefore be Gary Mitchell, the crew member of the Enterprise played by Gary Lockwood in the second pilot episode “Beyond the Galaxy” of 1966. The man transformed into a powerful telepathic and telekinetic due to exposure to an energy barrier that surrounds the galaxy that soon becomes a danger to Kirk and his people to the point of forcing the captain of the Enterprise to an extreme sacrifice.But even in this case, that is to say in the revelation of Urban, something does not add up. The character of Gary Mitchell has already appeared in the comic with which the writers of Star Trek are reviewing some historical episodes adapting them to the events of the new timeline arising after the “reboot”. The comic wants to bridge the gap between the first and the second film. Again, Mitchell was killed. Furthermore, Roberto Orci, a few weeks ago, had ruled out the presence of Gary Mitchell in the new film.Everything therefore suggests that JJ Abrams and associates have implemented a new mechanism, yet another smokescreen behind which to hide the truth. The movie page on the Internet Movie Database still says “Khan”, followed by “(rumored)”. Certainly it is known that something of Star Trek 2 will be on the net this weekend, thanks to the Comic-Con of San Diego. It is not excluded that the subtitle of the film may be revealed. We’ll see!

TNT renews Falling SkiesThe TNT cable network has ordered the release of the third season of Falling Skies . The new series of episodes will consist of another 10 chapters that will be broadcast on television in the USA over the course of next summer. The current second season (also broadcast simultaneously in Italy on the FOX satellite channel) achieved an average audience of 5,900,000 spectators. According to initial estimates, the show is in first place among the most popular programs of the summer in the age group, which is fundamental for advertisers, ranging from 18 to 49 years.
