  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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
