With less than a year until Star Trek Beyond beams, warps, or is hurtled by a powerful alien known as the Caretaker into theaters near you, news of the production is beginning to trickle in. The most recent news item is that actor/martial artist Joe Taslim is joining the cast.
The actor was relatively unknown outside of his native Indonesia until he jump-kicked his way on to screens with 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, directed by Justin Lin, who is also helming Star Trek Beyond. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story over the weekend.

Love them or not, one can’t deny that Creation Entertainment has built an enduring calendar of annual events. If you’ve never been to a convention put on by Creation, they are indeed a bit different than most pop-culture conventions. The first thing to strike a visitor is that these events are fairly low-key affairs. That’s not to say that they’re not very well attended; there’s a healthy crowd, but it’s not shoulder-to-shoulder, and definitely once you’re past picking up your registration badge, not the typical bumper-car experience. They tightly control the daily number of attendees to make sure that every person at the event can make it into the main session rooms to enjoy the experience.
