Rick Berman, head of the Trek franchise, finally opened up about Star Trek: Enterprise, in an interview with the LA Times.
Sci-Fi will debut a new series starting July 14th entitled The Chronicle, about a tabloid that investigates paranormal phenomena. It will star Chad Willett (Alive), Rena Sofer (Melrose Place) and Reno Wilson (News from the Edge). George Takei (Sulu on Star Trek) is already set to guest star in an episode airing July 28th.
All the trades are reporting that Dreamworks SKG’s Shrek has taken over at the box office, taking in over $40 million and placing second all time for an animated movie weekend opening, behind Toy Story 2, and displacing The Lion King. Not a bad take for an ogre. Is this good news (acceptance of CGI) or bad news (it wasn’t theirs) for Disney/Pixar’s next feature, Monsters, Inc.?
