Yelchin's parents, Irina and Victor, are suing the manufacturers of the Jeep Grand Cherokee that killed their son after it rolled backwards down his steep driveway in L.A.
The parents of the late Star Trek actor Anton Yelchin broke down in tears at a press conference as they revealed that they’re planning to sue car manufacturers Fiat Chrysler for the “wrongful death” of their son.
On June 19th this year, Yelchin was discovered pinned against the closed gate of his driveway at his home in Studio City, California, after his Jeep Grand Cherokee had rolled backwards after it was parked, and crushed him to death.
The 27 year old actor’s parents, Irina and Victor, gave an emotional press conference on Wednesday (August 3rd), during which they announced their intention to sue Fiat Chrysler, the manufacturer of the Jeep Grand Cherokee model in question, as well as manufacturer ZF North American and the AutoNation car retailer.
This is where the Star Trek franchise officially shifts from thoughtful drama into thunderous action. Fast & Furious director Justin Lin brings a kinetic energy to this third chapter in the rebooted space saga, leaping between chases and battles to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Combined with constant witty interaction, the film is massively entertaining, even if the plot ultimately feels a bit thin.
It's been three years since the crew of the Enterprise started their five-year mission, and they're in need of a break. So they head to the nearest spaceport for some down-time, which is soon interrupted when Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his team (Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin) are called to travel through a dangerous nebula to rescue a kidnapped crew from a villainous thug called Krall (Idris Elba). On arrival, the Enterprise is overwhelmed by Krall's bee-like military swarm. Stranded on a strange planet, the crew teams up with Jaylah (Sofia Boutella), a feisty survivor of one of Krall's earlier attacks. And as they realise the extent of Krall's evil plan, they're not sure that they can stop him.

Headlines this week have been filled with the death of 'Star Trek' actor Anton Yelchin, but the truth is this was a rising star who had plenty more going for him than the blockbuster movie franchise. Wipe away the 'Star Trek' veneer and you've got an actor whose starred alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood within the confines of independent filmmaking.
Anton Yelchin had a vast filmography under his belt
As well as 'Star Trek Beyond', Yelchin has a number of posthumous releases from Mark Palansky's sci-fi thriller 'Rememory' to Peer Pedersen's family drama 'We Don't Belong Here'. But he wasn't merely an up-and-coming star; over the past year or two, he's firmly cemented himself as a household name with these other epic releases:

Reports suggest a flaw in his Jeep Grand Cherokee could be responsible.
Further details surrounding the untimely and horrific death of 'Star Trek' actor Anton Yelchin have arisen this week, with reports suggesting that his 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee had a serious design flaw and was subject to a recall along with 1.1 million other Fiat Chrysler vehicles around the world.
Anton Yelchin owned a Jeep that had previously been complained about
If reports are to be believed, Anton Yelchin is not the first victim of this sort of incident from a Jeep, though no other deaths have been reported. Apparently, it could all be down to the electronic gear selector which doesn't work in the same way as the more typical lever which sits in certain positions for each transmission mode. Complaints have been filed to the manufacturers and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by owners who have also had roll-away incidents as a result of the Jeep's confusing handling.

Shooting is expected to begin next month on the dark comedy, which boasts an impressive cast and crew and looks like it could be the perfect vehicle to relaunch Deschanel’s film career, which seems to have taken a back seat to television lately.

Glenn Close will play a role similar to Samuel L Jackson's in The Avengers.
Well this is a surprising casting, though one that sort of makes a ton of sense. According to the Deadline.com, Marvel Studios has landed Oscar winning actress Glenn Close to play a major new role in its latest franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy. The actress will reportedly play a leadership role in Nova Corp, the intergalactic space control.
The new James Gunn-directed movie goes into production next month, so Marvel have left it late to cast what is essentially a major role. The movie already boasts a pretty decent looking cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker and John C. Reilly. Pratt landed the lead role following a search that included Marvel looking at Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess and Eddie Redmayne.
Sources tell Deadline that Close's role will be the closest thing to the one that Samuel L. Jackson plays in The Avengers, though perhaps with more of an edge. Close has proven she can play the hardnosed character in the likes of Damages, Fatal Attraction and, err, 101 Dalmatians and we see her being a real hit in Guardians.

The pugilistic script is based on one of those fascinatingly ugly crime stories that come rocketing out of Southern California every now and again, to much clucking of tongues over wayward and rudderless youth. Following the sad state of events that leads a drug dealer to kidnap the younger brother of a client who owes him money, as a means of extracting said payment, the film traces how the kidnapped teenager (a momma's boy who yearns for rebellion) develops a horribly overwrought case of Stockholm Syndrome, earnestly believing he's just having a good time with the dealer's hard-partying friends. In fact, while the kids party like it's 1999 (the year the kidnapping actually took place), imbibing copious amounts of drugs and alcohol, the dealer, Johnny (Emile Hirsch, like an evil version of Turtle from Entourage) is panicking, having realized what he's gotten himself into.
