Between the Streams: Star Trek expands, Alien sequel mania, ‘Wrecked’s’ Asif Ali (exclusive)

DT’s entertainment show, Between the Streams, is your guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was. (You can also add us via RSS, iTunes, or Stitcher at the links above to take BtS on the road!)

We’ve got a great show lined up today, including a bonus interview with Asif Ali, part of the cast of the new hit comedy Wrecked — only available for those who follow us on the podcast version. In other words, if you have yet to check us out on Stitcher, now would be a great time! (You can also check it out in our podcast player below.)

There are some intriguing movies coming out this week, so we’ll give you the lowdown in our Weekend Box Office segment. Highlights include the new Viggo Mortensen movie about a family of outcasts who live apart from society, Captain Fantastic; the new gross-out/buddy comedy with Zac Efron Adam Devine, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates; and some other picks for those looking to hit the cinema this weekend. Spoiler alert: You’re going to want to avoid John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson’s cell phone zombie flick. For reals.

We’ve also got news on both new films in the Alien canon: Ridley Scott’s follow-up prequel, Alien: Covenant, and the still-untitled, Neill Blomkamp-directed Alien sequel. Cast member of the former film, Danny McBride, reveals some cool, new secrets about the film, including the origin of its title. In the case of the latter, franchise veteran Sigourney Weaver has officially confirmed that the film will indeed forge a new path that casts away some of the previous sequels. Confused yet? Don’t worry, we’ll break it all down.

We’ve also got Star Trek news to discuss, including more details about CBS’ new Star Trek series, as well as a preview of the new special that will discuss Star Trek’s relationship with state-of-the-art science fact. We’ll go through all of that and much more, so tune in or take us on the road via Stitcher or iTunes!
