"This Is Like Everything I've Done Wrapped In One Movie" Says J.J. Abrams. Star Trek Into Darkness Hits The Super Bowl
If you watched the big game tonight, you probably saw the Star Trek Into Darkness teaser ad. Well, if you haven't, Youtube comes to the rescue. I'm not sure how long this will stay up considering the new spot is an exclusive iTunes movie trailer. If it gets taken down, you can always visit the Into Darkness page at trailers.apple.com. The new spot shows a few never-before-seen frames full of despair and a plummeting Constitution Class ship. It still is a Constitution Class, right? Considering the parallel universe and all. Check out the trailer below.
As refined thespians and Knights of the Realm, Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen are no strangers to the Broadway stage. This fall Picard & Magneto (or Professor X & Gandalf, if you prefer) are set to co-star in two separate plays. First, they will be reprising their roles in the critically acclaimed Samuel Becket play Waiting for Godot, which originally played in 2009 to sold out audiences at London's West End. Next, they will be in a limited engagement run of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land.
The Master Of Subterfuge Strikes Again. J.J. Abrams "IS" Set To Direct Next Star Wars Film. Ewoks and Jar-Jar Rejoice.
Okay, so this is the second article I've written in so many months about that other "star" franchise. Let me set the record straight, I dig Star Wars too. In fact, I love Empire... both the Queensryche album and the Star Wars movie. So, when the news came through the tubes today that J.J. "will" direct the Episode VII, I got kinda excited. I was hoping for Joss Whedon, but what's a brother gonna do?

Today we'd like to celebrate the birthday of our favorite country doctor, black hat cowboy, and consummate actor DeForest Kelley. De would have been 93 years-young today and the Trek universe hasn't been the same since his untimely passing in 1999. De started his career in Hollywood with a role in the film noir classic Fear in the Night which starred Paul Kelly & Ann Doran. Shortly after that role, De served his country during World War II in the First Motion Picture Unit, making propaganda & training films for the US Armed Forces. During his time with FMPU, De was spotted by a paramount talent scout and the rest, as they say, is history.
I have a few idiosyncrasies as a Trek fan and my choice for favorite Captain is definitely one of them. Sure, I dig Kirk, Picard, & the rest of the gang, but my fav has to be Captain Pike. Of course, you probably guessed it by my nom de plum. The original Christopher Pike was played by the late great Jeffrey Hunter and TrekWeb just recently reprinted excerpts from an interview featuring the "first" captain of the Enterprise. The original interview was conducted in 1965 and Jeffrey explains the premise of a scifi pilot that he's filming and how excited he is to be a part of it.
"We run into pre-historic worlds, contemporary societies and civilizations far more developed than our own" Hunter told the interviewer "It's a great format because writers have a free hand - they can have us land on a monster infested planet, or deal in human relations involving the large number of people who live in this gigantic ship."CONTINUE READING >>
