You know about the Han Solo movie, right? The one that seemed like a joke at first, until Disney announced the casting. The one that got Chris Miller and Phil Lord to direct, only to fire them at the end of production because they were crea...

Star Trek: Discovery's SDCC trailer is full of drama

I really wish that CBS would put out a trailer or something that made me feel confident in exactly what Star Trek: Discovery is. Am I supposed to be watching something from the original Trek universe or not? They say it's in that timel...
