  1. Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland Trailer Is Finally Out, and You Should Watch It

    Taking things to a whole other dimension.

    You have been waiting for months—no, years—for this. At last, the second (and probably final) teaser trailer for Brad Bird's sci-fi Tomorrowland is on the internet for the world to see. And it looks amazing!

  2. First Photos and Plot Deets For Tomorrowland, From Damon Lindelof (So, You Know)

    I mean. You know.

    For reasons currently passing understanding, Hollywood has chosen to make a movie out of Tomorrowland. You know, that one part of the Magic Kingdom at Disney? Anyways, since that's the most ambiguously ridiculous thing to make a movie of ever, and the film is already in post, be glad we finally have some photos and plot details from the production team.

  5. 6 Famous Creators Who’ve Left Twitter Because of Their Critics

    Qwitters.

    Celebrities on Twitter get a lot of people constantly spewing hate at them, but for anyone who's in some kind of creative leadership position, it's about a spillion times worse. So it's no wonder that a bunch of showrunners and game developers have quit the social media network at one point or another.

  6. Damon Lindelof Doesn’t Care What You Think About LOST’s Ending, Thanks to Breaking Bad

    Hey, there are still people out there who liked the LOST finale! I think?

    Earlier in the week, we told you that LOST creator Damon Lindelof had been receiving some pretty terrible hate in the wake of the widely-acclaimed Breaking Bad series finale. In a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof just wants you to know: he doesn't care what you think about the LOST finale any more. He. Is. Over it.

  7. Breaking Bad Finale Makes Fans Remind Damon Lindelof How Much They Hated The LOST Finale

    Not sure if he agrees, or just trolling.

    Unless you live in an internet-less cavern (if so, how are you reading this, magical being?), you probably know that Breaking Bad ended last night. People were so pleased with the outcome of AMC's epic show that they celebrated in the best way the internet knows how: by hating on someone else. This time, it was LOST creator Damon Lindelof.

  8. Damon Lindelof Basically Lied To ABC So They Would Pick Up LOST

    "Oh, yeah, the smoke monster, totally going to be resolved in the first few episodes."

    Love it or hate it, LOST was a game-changer in the world of television. Expensive to shoot, filmed in Hawaii, incredibly serialized, and often completely nonsensical, it's amazing that in the current TV landscape, a network looked at the premise for the show and said, "That's a great idea! Let's do it!" Well, as it turns out: that never happened.

  10. There Was a Deleted Cumberbatch Shower Scene; I’m Not Impressed

    If we got angry about this kind of thing we'd be angry all the time

    On Conan O'Brien last night J.J. Abrams was asked about the recent controversy over a moment of contrived near-nudity in Star Trek Into Darkness. And I actually respect Abrams' response: he says that his intention was to do a quick joke in the midst of a bunch of action, but says "I don't think I quite edited the scene in the right way," and of those that felt the scene was exploitative "I can also see their point of view." There are ways that the scene could have been directed or edited in a way that actually made it appear that Carol Marcus' reaction to Kirk being a supercreep shamed or cowed him in, well, any way. If Abrams felt this scene was really the "balance" to a brief scene of Kirk post-coitus with two alien women, where his nudity before the opposite sex is a product of his sexual prowess, not something that he has just expressed a clear desire to avoid, I just wish he'd executed that better. Abrams also shared a few seconds of Benedict Cumberbatch's character taking a shower, which was not included in the final cut of the movie. And since Cumberbatch is kind of a rising nerd property now (particularly among women), that clip is getting spread around quite widely, touted as the end to the argument. And I'd like to, just for a moment, talk about what this clip isn't: it isn't evidence that men and women's bodies are treated equally in the movie.

  11. Damon Lindelof Says Something Else About Women in Star Trek Into Darkness

    I Want to Believe

    "I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress. We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies. Do not want to make light of something that some construe as mysogenistic. What I'm saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future. Also, I need to learn how to spell 'misogynistic.'" - Star Trek Into Darkness writer Damon Lindelof in a string of four tweets sent out roughly a half hour after we posted his lackluster answer as to why actress Alice Eve was made to strip down in the film for no reason. It's nice to see Lindelof comment on the complaints at all, and we hope he really is more mindful of these types of things in the future but we must point out - having half naked actors in a sex scene does not equal the treatment Eve received. Again, it's all about context and Dr. Carol Marcus was put on display with none. What do you think of Lindelof's apology? (via tipster commenter Eric) Previously in Star Trek

  12. Damon Lindelof on Women in Star Trek Into Darkness

    Today in things that make us scream incoherently

    "Why is Alice Eve in her underwear, gratuitously and unnecessarily, without any real effort made as to why in God's name she would undress in that circumstance? Well there's a very good answer for that. But I'm not telling you what it is. Because... uh... MYSTERY?" - Star Trek Into Darkness writer Damon Lindelof writing probably the most idiotic thing he could write in a letter to MTV. They had asked, "I feel like I have to start with the biggest mystery/conversation that's surrounded the film from the get go. Why is Alice Eve in her underwear at one point?" Because, well, that is an incredibly relavent question to ask. I mentioned it briefly in my non-TMS review but really, I could have gone on for pages about it. Eve's character of Dr. Carol Marcus was touted to have incredible intelligence, though instead of allowing her to use it to effect the plot, she was used as the most blatant eye-candy I've seen in a long time. We see this kind of thing a lot in Hollywood, sure, but the scene in question was akin to an actor holding up and verbally speaking the name of a can of Coca-Cola during a scene about cats or general surgery. And for a writer to respond to serious criticism in such a flippant manner is disappointing to say the least. Not to mention what he said when asked about a rumored shirtless scene for Benedict Cumberbatch's character:

  14. Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland Casts Its First Actress

    The Future Is Now!

    Tomorrowland is a movie shrouded in secrecy, being put together by Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof, two names that many folks would follow to any movie theater even if they weren't working together. We're interested in it not the least because if rumors are to be believed, while George Clooney and Hugh Laurie are playing major characters, neither are playing the lead. In fact, the lead, and both of the two remaining main characters will be played by young women. Those rumors stand supported with the announcement of Raffey Cassidy in the role of a butt kicking robot girl.

  16. Bird and Lindelof’s Tomorrowland Seems to Have Some Cool Lady Characters in It

    The Future Is Now!

    It doesn't take much to make our ears perk up and pay attention to a movie, and the possibility of some cool ladies in a movie is definitely one of those things. Cool being an, admittedly, simultaneously very broad and very specific definition. Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof have been teasing their upcoming Disney project for months now, first under the working title 1952, before the film's actual title was revealed to be Tomorrowland, after the themed attraction at many Disney parks. They even went so far as to reveal a mysterious image of a suitcase full of random stuff, so that the internet could go crazy identifying it all and wondering what it might mean. Clearly somebody out there knew what the movie was about, since Hugh Laurie and George Clooney are both attached to the movie. And now, thanks to casting info, we might have a clue to what it's all about.

  17. Damon Lindelof Commiserates With The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara Over Network Woes

    Oh Hollywood

    Late last year we learned AMC's The Walking Dead was going to lose its second showrunner, Glen Mazzara. While everyone was dying to know why someone creating a successful show for the network would leave (or told to leave), Mazzara was fairly tight-lipped on the subject. To fans it made no sense and perhaps that's why he was asked about it at a National Association of Television Program Executives panel with Damon Lindelof. Read on for what he had to say about his departure as well as how Lindelof could relate.

  18. Popular Science Picks the 2012 Movie With the Sloppiest Science

    she blinded me with science

    Science in sci-fi movies is rarely all that accurate. We get that. It's OK. Space battles wouldn't be nearly so visually interesting if there weren't any impossible explosions taking place in a vacuum. But some movies take their disregard for the basic principles of science to the next level. And according to Popular Science, the worst perpetrator from 2012 is…

  19. Damon Lindelof Won’t Be Back to Spread Confusion in the Prometheus Sequel

    It Came From Outer Space

    Ridley Scott's going to have to find himself a new writer to (hopefully) explain all those crazy plotholes in the Prometheus sequel, because Damon Lindelof has officially taken himself out of the running. Lindelof, who rewrote Jon Spaiht's original Prometheus script (which had facehuggers galore and a chestburster sex scene), told Scott that he'd be unable to commit to writing the Prometheus sequel because he has so many other projects in the works.

  20. Brad Bird’s Unnamed Sci-Fi Film Gets a Name Switch, Flirts With George Clooney

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Look, this will all make sense in a moment. Brad Bird, see, the guy behind The Incredibles, The Iron Giant, Ratatouille, and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, is working on this unnamed science fiction film, according to Hollywood buzz. Written by, yes, Damon Lindelof, it's currently running with the code name 1952, understood to be a codename that may or may not have anything to do with the actual content of them movie. The movie was also briefly known as Tesla, which, again, may or may not actually be related to the subject of the movie. Who is currently related to the movie? George Clooney.
