  1. Simon Pegg Says Our Genre Fiction Love May Have “Infantilized” Us, but He’s Still Proud to Be a Nerd

    I know you are, but what am I?

    Simon Pegg, nerd extraordinaire and co-writer of the new Star Trek, understandably caused a bit of shock today when he called some of our geekier interests "childish," but not all was as it seemed. Pegg has clarified his remarks, and he was actually "trolling" a bit in defense of the things we all love.

  2. Simon Pegg Can Do Absolutely Anything in the Trailer for… Absolutely Anything

    Apt title is apt.

    If this and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy have taught me anything, it's that aliens have kind of a thing for weird British dudes. And yes, that really is Robin Williams' voice as Dennis the talking dog, in case "Simon Pegg alien comedy" wasn't enough of a draw for you.

  3. Spaced Newbie Recap: “Ends”

    “Life just isn’t like the movies.”

    Can all season finales mimic what the season one finale of Spaced managed to accomplish?

  4. Simon Pegg Confirms He’s Writing Idris Elba a “Kickass Role” for Star Trek 3

    Oh, and The Force Awakens will apparently leave us "vibrating!"

    Nerd Do Well and Star Trek 3 scribe, Simon Pegg, spoke with MTV recently and confirmed that not only was he writing a "kickass" role for Idris Elba, but that it would be a never-before-seen character!

  5. Gordon’s Alive! Matthew Vaughn in Talks to Direct Flash Gordon Movie

    We're as surprised as Prince Vultan.

    News has been quiet on the upcoming Flash Gordon film reboot, but now it's been reported that X-Men: First Class's Matthew Vaughn is looking to direct.

  6. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Epiphanies”

    Is there any song in existence as instantly feel good as “Come On Eileen” by the Dexy’s Midnight Runners? What a way to start the episode. Hell, what an episode in general. It doesn’t seem like much of a reach to say that the sixth episode “Epiphanies” is Spaced's finest installment to date.

  7. Kingsman: The Secret Service Star Sofia Boutella Reportedly Lands Lead Role in Star Trek 3

    I'll drink to that.

    According to Deadline, Kingsman: The Secret Service star Sofia Boutella has landed a major role in Justin Lin's Star Trek 3.

  8. Spaced Newbie Recap: “Chaos”

    Despite an action-packed episode courtesy of Tim’s adoration of Star Wars, “Chaos” almost seems to be a relaxed version of the show. While it's certainly not a weak episode (does this show do weak episodes?), it’s definitely a more sedated version than we’ve gotten for the prior four weeks. Despite this, Edgar Wright goes all out in his love of quick cuts, exaggerated close ups, and sound effects paired with both.

  9. Star Trek 3 Writer Simon Pegg Comments on Those Idris Elba Klingon Rumors

    They've actually cast an unknown actor named "John Harrison."

    Has he dashed our great hopes or given us something epic to hold onto?

  10. Simon Pegg Says Star Trek 3 Will Have the Show’s Spirit, “Optimism” for a “More Enlightened Generation”

    Nothing says optimism like IDRIS ELBA.

    At a recent press junket for his upcoming film Kill Me Three Times, Star Trek and Mission: Impossible star Simon Pegg was asked how the opportunity to write the next Star Trek movie arose and what he hopes to bring to the script

    Damn it, Jim.

  12. Hawkeye Says Hey in First Trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Pizza Dog Sadly Absent

    Wait, where is Felicity Jones?

    I'm really excited for this movie despite its infuriatingly punctuated title, but it would be awesome if the Mission: Impossible franchise had at least one recurring female character worth mentioning.

  13. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Battles”

    We finally got more Mike this week!

    With this weeks episode of Spaced I saw two more Edgar Wright-isms introduced in the early stages of his career. First, there was his love of people jumping out of windows and out of scene, which would of course come back in Scott Pilgrim vs The World and The Worlds End. Then, Tim says to Brian "you've got some paint on you" which can't help but make me remember "you've got red on you" from Shaun of the Dead.

  14. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Art”

    My word, is David Williams' character Vulva ever on the eerie side.

  15. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Gatherings”

    I don’t see myself ever not saying this, but I loved this episode! It had me laughing essentially from the beginning until it ended, while allowing us to learn more about our oddball lead characters. The premise is again deceptively simple: Daisy, like many of us, is an enthusiastic procrastinator and decides to throw a party instead of sitting down to write anythin

  16. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Beginnings”

    There are no filmmakers like Edgar Wright. Wright has taken what’s fun about the cinematic experience and projected it through a lens that’s full of cheeky humor, impressively diverse visuals, and an emotional thorough line. All the while, he takes familiar narratives (buddy cop movies, zombies and aliens) and compresses them into a more singular story, while simultaneously broadening the topics to find something that can reach past those formulaic tropes.

  17. Simon Pegg to Co-Write Next Star Trek Movie With Doug Jung

    "Replicator, please make me a bunch of Cornetto cones."

    Expect Scotty to save the day even more than he usually does, possibly with the help of a new ensign who looks suspiciously like Nick Frost.

  18. Things We Saw Today: Cornetto Trilogy Figurines Have Got Some Red On ‘Em

    Let's just go to the Winchester and wait for all this to blow over.

    A Large Evil Corporation (excellent name is excellent) has produced three sets of highly-detailed vinyl figurines to honor Nick Frost and Simon Pegg's characters in each installment of the beloved Cornetto Trilogy.

  19. Things We Saw Today: Samurai Jack Teams Up With the Doctor

    Togeher they will take on Daleku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness.

    Man, if this Redbubble t-shirt were real and the Doctor had given Samurai Jack a lift, that whole "undoing the future that is Aku" thing would have been so much easier.

  20. Things We Saw Today: Our First Look At the Disney Villain’s Kids From Descendants

    I think I saw a Monster High set like this once.

    Welp, that is... pretty much how we expected them to look when we heard the words "Disney villain high school AU" for the first time. Starting left and going clockwise we have Booboo Stewart as Jafar's son Jay, Cameron Boyce as Cruella's son Carlos, Sofia Carlson as The Evil Queen's daughter Evie, and Dove Cameron as Maleficent's "Mal."
