Michelle Yeoh, helicopters, and Star Trek: Discovery’s international release date.
We may be in the middle of a rare lull period for Star Trek releases but that doesn’t mean the news is limited. On the contrary, we have a whole host of little news bites including Michelle Yeoh, helicopters, and Star Trek: Discovery’s international release.
For Yeoh, the Hollywood Reporter revealed that the American Film Institute will honor Yeoh with the ceremonial Doctorate of Fine Arts, which is given to someone “for contributions of distinction to the art of the moving image.”
She joins Robert Altman, Maya Angelou, Helen Mirren, and Spike Lee as recipients of the award.
Pennsylvania’s American Helicopter Museum getting Star Trek Props
Are you a fan of helicopters? What about museums? What about helicopter museums!? You are!? Well, wait…what about Pennsylvania? You can, “take it or leave it”, you say? Well, if you’re so inclined to travel to Pennslyvania, and why would you with Ohio being right there, you can now stop on by for a little dose of Trek goodness.
The American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (AHMEC), located in West Chester, PA will will host an exhibit of props used in and designed for the franchise, as well as costumes from all over the Star Trek franchise.
The exhibit will host several speakers including Nancy Reagin, A. J. Black, Brian McGuire, Sherilyn Connelly, and physicist Lawrence Krauss. Modern fans for the franchise will also get a sneak preview of new items as well; though whether they are new items for the museum or for a new series is unclear.
Members of the museum get early access on Sep 8, while the general public can view the items from Sep 9 through Nov 27.
