Michelle Obama Screens 'Star Trek Beyond' at the White House

Michelle Obama helped host a special Star Trek Beyond screening!

The 52-year-old First Lady of the United States welcomed stars Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, and Karl Urban to the White House in advance of the movie hitting theaters this Friday, July 22.

“Isn’t it cool that they’re here? They’re stars. There are movie stars here,” Mrs. Obama told the crowd in the South Court Auditorium (via People). “See, I still do this when movie stars show up. I’m like, ‘You’re really here!’”

She continued, “And they’re actually, like, normal-height people, handsome – let’s just admit it, ladies, they’re very handsome, aren’t they? I mean, we’ve got to just let that out. I could tell you wanted to just release that.”

Anton Yelchin's Role Will Not Be Re-Cast in 'Star Trek' Series

Anton Yelchin will be making one of his final appearances on screen in the upcoming film Star Trek Beyond and his role of Chekov will not be re-cast for the series.

JJ Abrams, who directed the first two films in the rebooted franchise and produced the third movie, spoke out in an interview with the Toronto Sun.

“I would say there’s no replacing him,” JJ said. “There’s no re-casting. I can’t possibly imagine that, and I think Anton deserves better.”

Anton died on June 19 in a freak accident after his Jeep rolled down his driveway and crushed him against a gate.

Zoe Saldana Wants to Be Captain of Starship Enterprise!

Zoe Saldana heads to her car after her interview on Good Morning America on Monday (July 18) in Times Square, New York City.

During the interview, a young Star Trek fan asked the 38-year-old actress when she would be captain of the Starship Enterprise.

“That’s a fantastic question,” Zoe responded with a smile and high-five. “I would love to be captain. I feel like in this movie, because we’re all split, the crew is split, based on the catastrophes that the Enterprise may have to endure, that we all play captain in our own right trying to get ourselves back together and save as many lives as we can. So, I think I did get a little glimpse of playing captain in this movie.”

Zoe went on to describe her deep love for all things science fiction.

“My sisters and I were definitely not the conventional little girls,” she continued. “We were always into, like, the infinite possibilities of the universe may offer and that kept me always so curious about space.”

Watch the whole interview below:
