Dammit Jim!

Does Anyone Recognize These Men Who Claim to Have Kidnapped J.J. Abrams?

Late last month these three unknown (totally known) men sent (tweeted) this picture to George Lucas (the internet), alleging that that they did not know where J.J. Abrams was, despite it appearing that the director of both the last two Star Trek films and the upcoming Star Wars VII was slumped behind them. The director has (not) been missing for at least a week. Anyone who can identify these three will (not) be eligible for a hefty reward from police.

Disney’s Into the Woods Movie Goes Into the Production, Releases Official Cast

Is a viral video star, as rumored, really in the role of Little Red Riding Hood? Is Anna Kendrick in it? Are Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine, and Johnny Depp all in one movie?

Thank goodness we have answers to all these questions below. Get ready for a wall of names.

Review

Star Trek Into Darkness Goes, and Goes, Just Not Very Boldly

Into Darkness, that colon-less second installment of New Trek kicking off the summer season is a lot of things, including plentifully humorous, bombastic, well-designed, and confused about its purpose. Like the villain that menaced us from all those teaser posters, Into Darkness makes us wonder what, ultimately, it’s up to. Identity is a key factor to wonder about as, two movies in, even casual Trekkie patience is worn thin by a stream of visual and idealistic incursions that belong to other films. Make no mistake; Into Darkness is a good popcorn-crunching experience, swift on its feet and full of action and jokes. It’s just not, like its predecessor, much of a Star Trek film.

Ensign, take us to SPOILERS.

Emma Watson, Zachary Quinto, & The Pitch Perfect Cast Experience Ellen’s Kid Reporters

The other day we posted a still from this interview session of Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine with The Ellen Show’s kid reporters/singing sensations, Sophia Grace and Rosie. The video has surfaced and features the adorable duo speaking with a few other stars backstage at the MTV Movie Awards. I’m not sure what part is my favorite, their photo-op with Emma Watson or watching the cast of Pitch Perfect try to upstage them at their speciality.

What Does Star Trek Into Darkness Have In Common With Princesses?

So much wonderful in this photo, it doesn’t even need to be explained. In other news, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine are counting the minutes until they can talk about Star Trek Into Darkness for real. “The good news is we’re about two weeks away from being able to actually talk about it,” Quinto told MTV, with Pine adding, “It’ll be nice not to have to lie anymore.”

Now, release the video from this interview ASAP, Ellen.

Star Trek’s Chris Pine Threatens To Kidnap J.J. Abrams Over This Whole Star Wars Thing

We know the long-running feud over Star Trek vs. Star Wars can range from telling jokes to throwing punches but the interesting thing about J.J. Abrams being chosen to direct the next Star Wars film was the entire world realized it was blasphemy, not just fandom. So what does the rebooted Trek’s Captain Kirk think of the news? Actor Chris Pine is excited for his friend, but also really serious about making sure he’s back on board the Enterprise in a few years. But what if Pine were to get a role in Abrams’ Star Wars? Would a black hole open up and suck all of us into it? Find out what Pine thinks.

Everyone Involved in Star Trek Into Darkness Is a Giant Troll [VIDEO]

First J.J. Abrams shares three frames of Star Trek Into Darkness on Conan. And now Zachary Quinto has contributed to the trollery with his own clip—or, well, “clip”—from the upcoming Trek sequel.

“I have a lot of respect for you and your audience,” said the actor to Conan, “and I wanted to bring something for you guys that was more than [three frames], you know.” Sure, Quinto. Sure. I don’t want to spoil the clip for you, but let’s just say it involves greenscreen and something resembling a Spock snuggie.

Simon Pegg tweeted yesterday that the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer is premiering online this Thursday. I swear, if Chris Pine shows up on Conan tonight to explain that the star of the film is actually—surprise!—William Shatner, I am going to scream.

And then possibly die laughing. I love this cast.
