Star Trek Into Darkness

  1. [UPDATED] Alice Eve’s Transphobic Comment About Bruce Jenner Underlines A Greater Misunderstanding of Feminism

    Two days ago, Star Trek Into Darkness' Alice Eve posted this great photo of body confidence activist, Harnaam Kaur, on her Instagram with the hashtags #equalpay and #equalrights. Seems like it'd be a feminist post, right? Well, yes and no. While Eve did post the image of Kaur in solidarity with a fellow woman, Eve then felt the need to talk about Bruce Jenner's announcement in the comments for some reason. They have since been deleted (but not before the Internet took notice).

  2. Star Trek Into Darkness Bloopers Have Surprisingly Less Darkness In Them

    Star Trek Into... Levity?

    IGN just put out this exclusive set of bloopers from the Star Trek: The Compendium Blu-ray set of both J.J. Abrams-directed films. Say what you want about the movie (we have), its unfortunate Khan reveal (we did), and its odd objectification of its female characters (yup, that too), but damn it if these are those most adorkable actors all hanging out with each other and we just want to love them so.

  3. Here’s What Happened at the “Women of Trek Fandom” Panel at Star Trek: Las Vegas!

    "Ma'am" will do in a pinch, but they prefer "captain."

    Walking the floor at Star Trek: Las Vegas, the world's largest Star Trek convention, you can see the tradition of active female Trek fans is alive and well. This year's "Women in Trek Fandom" panel, hosted by Mary Czerwinski of DVD Geeks and Glue Guns and Phasers, was a chance to reflect on how far we've come and what still needs to happen to achieve equality in fandom, as well as in terms of on-screen representations and behind-the-camera roles.

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

    KHAAAAAN

    "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.

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

    To Boldly Go

    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.

  11. The Mary Sue’s 2013 Summer Movie Wrap-Up

    Power Grid

    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.

  20. 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.
