Star Trek Into Darkness is a 2013 American science fiction action film. It is the twelfth installment in the Star Trek film franchise and the sequel to 2009’s Star Trek and the second in the reboot series. The film was directed by J. J. Abrams from a screenplay by Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof based on the series of the same name created by Gene Roddenberry. Lindelof, Orci, Kurtzman, and Abrams are also producers, with Bryan Burk. Chris Pine reprises his role as Captain James T. Kirk, with Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Leonard Nimoy, Anton Yelchin, and Bruce Greenwood reprising their roles from the previous film. Benedict Cumberbatch, Peter Weller, and Alice Eve round out the film’s principal cast. The film was the last time Nimoy would portray the character of Spock, and his final film appearance before his death in 2015.

The plot of Into Darkness takes place one year after the previous installment, with Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise sent to the Klingon homeworld seeking former Starfleet member-turned-terrorist John Harrison. After the release of Star Trek, Abrams, Burk, Lindelof, Kurtzman, and Orci agreed to produce its sequel. Filming began in January 2012. Into Darkness‍ ’​s visual effects were primarily created by Industrial Light & Magic.

The film was converted to 3D in post-production. Star Trek Into Darkness premiered at Event Cinemas in Sydney, Australia, on April 23, 2013,[5] and was released on May 9 in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Europe, and Peru,[6] with other countries following. The film was released on May 16 in the United States and Canada, opening at IMAX cinemas a day earlier.[7][8]

Into Darkness was a critical success, and its gross earnings of over $467 million worldwide made it the highest-grossing entry in the Star Trek franchise.

‘Spocking’ Laurier on $5 not illegal, says Bank of Canada

It turns out there’s not a lot of logic after all in the belief that it’s against the law to Vulcanize Wilfrid Laurier’s likeness on the $5 bill.

The death of Leonard Nimoy last week inspired people to post photos of marked-up banknotes on social media that show the former prime minister transformed to look like Spock, Nimoy’s famous Star Trek character.

For years, Canadians have been wielding pens to draw Spock’s pointy Vulcan ears, sharp eyebrows and signature bowl haircut on the fiver’s image of Laurier.

Contrary to what many believe, the Bank of Canada said Monday it’s not illegal to deface or even mutilate banknotes, although there are laws that prohibit reproducing both sides of a current bill electronically.

Nonetheless, bank spokeswoman Josianne Menard pointed out there are reasons to resist the urge to scribble on bills.

“The Bank of Canada feels that writing and markings on bank notes are inappropriate as they are a symbol of our country and a source of national pride,” Menard wrote in an email.

Long life and prosperity might also take a hit: Menard said disfigured bills may not circulate for as long and risk being rejected by retailers.

Following Nimoy’s death Friday, social media users posted their own versions of Laurier’s Vulcan makeover to honour the actor.

“Spock your $5 bills for Leonard Nimoy,” a group called the Canadian Design Resource tweeted alongside its depiction.

The online images of the altered bills circulated widely and attracted international media attention to something many Canadians were already familiar with.

It wasn’t exactly a place that no Canadian had boldly gone before.

Calgary artist Tom Bagley, who posted his own Spock-Laurier hybrid on Facebook and Flickr after Nimoy’s death, described it as an old bar trick to impress the waitress

He compared it to folding the $20 bill along the Queen’s face to make her smile or frown.

Bagley said he had no concerns about any potential legal issues over defacing the banknote. Besides, he said, he drew his with a pencil crayon, which can be erased.

“I don’t know anyone that’s gone to jail for it,” he said in an interview.

“I always thought it was OK as long as the numbers were intact — it still counted as money. That’s what I heard. Because stuff happens, like say you spill spaghetti sauce all over it or something like that.”

The 90’s Are Coming… Again!!

Have you noticed how much the 1990’s are not sneaking back into the world. The 90’s are sneaking into our music, with 90’s music samples and 90’s music covers.

The 90’s are back taking over the TV with the return of Blossom (Amy Farrah Fowler) in The Big Bang Theory and Joey & Melissa Joan Hart in their respawned TV series as a merge of Blossom and Clarissa Explains It All/Sabrina The Teenage Witch.

Then we have the rebooted Star Wars and Star Trek franchises as well at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers thanks to Michael Bay.

Generally the adult population are currently the 80-90’s kids. They are now reminiscing and revisiting their childhoods but the worry is…

When will the 00’s revivial start and what do you think will be the lovingly remade? reformed? are McBusted the first? PANIC!!
