This Week’s Trivia Question:

Star Trek Next GenerationMarina Sirtis, what part was she orginally considered for in Star trek The Next Generation?

News from the Bar Tender: Miles starts out sharing some Star Trek news. We also find out Cirque Du Freak gets January 2010 release date. High Plains Invaders: James Marsters, who stars in the SCI FI Channel original movie High Plains Invaders, told SCI FI Wire that adding aliens is the only way to reinvent the western. Marsters plays a reluctant cowboy hero who leads a town against invading alien bugs.  Sounds like a bad SciFi TV movie to us. Men in Black 3 and Ghostbusters 3 and Spiderman 4: Rory Bruer, president of Sony Worldwide Distribution, announced during the company’s ShoWest 2009 presentation that it is developing another Men in Black movie, collider.com reported.

All three projects are in the works with an eye toward 2011 releases. Alice in Wonderland to premiere simultaneously in IMAX 3D March 5, 2010 – Tim Burton Producing and Johnny Depp as Madd Hatter. Fringe Returns April 7th 9 PM FOX.  And we share some Transformers news.
