It’s been rumored for a while, but should Star Trek seriously consider bringing back Chris Hemsworth as Captain Kirk’s father?

“It will come as no surprise that I love the Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth father-son relationship present in Star Trek, the 2009 reboot film from J.J. Abrams. Hemsworth played George Kirk, father to James T. Kirk (Pine), who dies trying to protect his ship in the movie’s opening scene. Which is, as Star Trek fans know, not the canon from the original series, thus giving us the alternate timeline of the Kelvin universe. We got Hemsworth in that first movie and he’s getting ready to die as his son is being born and they’re talking about what to name the baby and that’s pretty much all we got of George Kirk. In fact, the father-son relationship here is defined by the fact that they didn’t get to have one, which hugely impacted James Kirk’s life.”

You’ve probably heard Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill” all over the internet since the release of Stranger Things 4, but the song has actually connected with different generations for four decades.

“A short list of words that might be used to describe Kate Bush’s 1985 synth-pop classic “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” include: otherworldly, haunting, yearning, and profound. None of these descriptors come remotely close to doing the song justice, but they help to explain why it was picked to soundtrack the climactic scene in a season 4 episode of Stranger Things. It’s no spoiler to say the moment calls for something intense, ethereal, and epic—and for that, the production knew there was really only one choice.”

Despite praise from fans upon its release, the prologue to Jurassic World Dominion did not make the final cut of the film. The director of the movie explains its confusing omission.

“It’s hard to imagine there’s anything left on the cutting room floor of these behemoth, two-plus hour mega-blockbusters, but of course, there’s always more content. Just ask Colin Trevorrow, whose prologue for Jurassic World Dominion isn’t even in the movie. It was, however, released online for the viewing public late last year to wet everyone’s whistle for the coming dino invasion. The better part of the prologue is a peaceful, nature-movie take on when dinosaurs ruled the planet before cutting to the not-so-peaceful coexistence 65 million years later.”
