    Star Trek Actor Anton Yelchin Dies
    Another week, another tragic death in this terrible year.
    Weeks before Star Trek Beyond opens in cinemas, Anton Yelchin who plays Chekov in the film series, has been tragically killed by his own car. The Russian-born actor, who was only 27 years old, was crushed by his car as it rolled down his own driveway after he had briefly exited the vehicle. Yelchin had most recently been seen in the excellent Green Room and had previously played Kyle Reese in Terminator Salvation.

    Paramount Pictures, the studio behind the Star Trek franchise, said in a statement “the world is mourning the untimely passing of Antony Yelchin. As a member of the Star Trek family, he was beloved by so many and he will missed by all. We share our deepest condolences with his mother, father and family.”

    Our thoughts and sympathies also go out to Anton Yelchin's friends and family.
