KHAAAAAN

J.J. Abrams: Keeping Khan’s Identity Secret Was a Mistake

“It ended up coming off like we were being coy. We were just trying to not ruin the thing. The truth is that after one screening everyone knows whatever it is. The idea was that for the first hour of the movie the characters in the movie don’t know, and it felt like if there were articles about KHAN! it would take away from the story. The truth is I think it probably would have been smarter just to say upfront ‘This is who it is.’ It was only trying to preserve the fun of it, and it might have given more time to acclimate and accept that’s what the thing was. The truth is because it was so important to the studio that we not angle this thing for existing fans. If we said it was Khan, it would feel like you’ve really got to know what Star Trek is about to see this movie. That would have been limiting. I can understand their argument to try to keep that quiet, but I do wonder if it would have seemed a little bit less like an attempt at deception if we had just come out with it.”— J.J. Abrams, admitting that all that secrecy surrounding the Cumbervillain was maaaaaaybe a bit much. But it’s the studio’s fault, because who do you think he is? An A-list director who has some degree of control over these things and is also notoriously obsessed with secrecy? Pssht.

BRB. Eyerolling into the final frontier.

J.J. Abrams Is Officially Not Directing The Next Star Trek Movie

Good news! Or bad news—your mileage may vary. But something tells me most of you are going to come down on the “Yes!” side of things. J.J. Abrams has confirmed that he’s stepping down from the director’s chair for the next Star Trek film. That and other bits of reboot Trek miscellany (Khan almost wasn’t in Into Darkness! Abrams talks about his decision to make the villain reveal a secret! Another BS explanation of the Carol Marcus underwear scene!) are behind the jump.

The Mary Sue’s 2013 Summer Movie Wrap-Up

This summer was a weird one. It felt, in a way, like were were still coming down from the high of The Avengers, the movie that ruled our hearts, minds, and wallets a single summer ago. On hand to catch us as we fell were some good movies, some bad movies, some movies that we weren’t angry at, just disappointed, and one shining example of Oh please God, no, why did this movie happen?!

We’re taking a fond (or, in some cases, not-so-fond) look back at the summer of 2013′s giant monsters, giant robots, giant stuffed rabbits, and the giant pile of wrongness that was a whole lot o’ whitewashing. Whew. With the summer over, let’s get ready for the end-of-year releases. More Hunger Games, Thor, and The Hobbit are right around the corner.
