Because teenagerdom is a mess, but some people handle it better than others.

The clip, behind the jump, is part of the first nine minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness that premiered at IMAX screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, so there’s nothing too spoilery regarding the overall plot. There is a fish, though. (Not a whale, which isn’t even a fish, I know. But can I really be expected to avoid a whale reference?) And a certain Enterprise crew member faces quite a bit of peril.
As a side note, the first gala premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness is happening tomorrow in Australia (which might be today in New York?… Bah, time zones), and that means people will start to find out who the Cumbervillain really is. If you find out, please, please make a concerted effort not to spoil others. And if you have to wait for your country’s wide release, you might want to start getting extra-careful about what links you click right about now. This has been a Public Service Announcement.READ MORE

Both posters are part of Bottleneck Gallery’s upcoming exhibit “When the Lights Go Out.” Gotta say, “glow-in-the-dark art” and “impressive” never really went together in my head… but clearly that was my bad. Mark Englert‘s Game of Thrones poster “The Battle at Blackwater” has shown me the (neon green) light. And Chris Thornley‘s 2001: A Space Odyssey poster, behind the cut, just convinced me further.READ MORE

Per the official Replica Dungeon description, this limited-edition The Walking Dead sword, modelled after the one Michonne wields, “is composed of 1045 high carbon steel and genuine ray skin [??] and leather on the handle wrap and strap.”
Yeah, OK. But how sharp is it?

It’s official: 20th Century Fox has confirmed that Alan Cumming won’t be in X-Men: Days of Future Past. I’ve gotta say, the news makes me rather… blue. (BA-DOOM-TISS)READ MORE

What can you say about Star Wars characters depicted as fruits and vegetables? May the figs be with you? Aren’t you a little short for an asparagus? That’s no moon, it’s a watermelon! No, you’re right, none of those should be said. But these are too amazing not to share. Artist Nela Krzewniak paired a few major Star Wars characters with fruits and vegetables for some interesting results. And yes, she did come up with punny names.

Universal Chairman Adam Fogelsen had a chat with The Hollywood Reporter about some of Universal’s upcoming projects, and while some of what he had to say had me snoozing (the 50 Shades of Grey movie might come out in summer 2014, at which point I will care about it even less than I do now, which is barely possible), some of it caught my eye. Namely: What was that you just said about a Van Helsing reboot and a Wicked movie, Mr. Fogelsen?READ MORE

Last we heard about Disney’s live-action version of Cinderella director Mark Romanek was out because Disney didn’t take too kindly to the dark (read: Actually fairy tale-esque) ending he wanted. Now Vulture reports that Kenneth Branagh might jump in instead. But Vulture, tell me what I really want to know: Is Cate Blanchett still on board as the evil stepmother?READ MORE

My name is Rebecca, and I love puns. I’m usually on duty here at The Mary Sue on Sundays, so I like to fill that day with as many puns as I can/remember to use. I’m saying this by way of an explanation as to why I’m posting this set of concept art from Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, this fall’s sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. First and foremost, Cloudy was an excellent movie and I’m very much looking forward to the new one. And the concept art is, I think, pretty cool-looking.
But there’s an ulterior movie, too. You see, the plot of the sequel is that heroes Flint (Bill Hader) and Sam (Anna Faris) have to defeat a race of food-animal hybrids, or food-imals. This concept art is of said food-imals, most of which have been given a punny name.
I couldn’t resist. I tried, but I couldn’t. Here you go.READ MORE
