Does Anyone Recognize These Men Who Claim to Have Kidnapped J.J. Abrams?

Late last month these three unknown (totally known) men sent (tweeted) this picture to George Lucas (the internet), alleging that that they did not know where J.J. Abrams was, despite it appearing that the director of both the last two Star Trek films and the upcoming Star Wars VII was slumped behind them. The director has (not) been missing for at least a week. Anyone who can identify these three will (not) be eligible for a hefty reward from police.

Lucasfilm Says J.J. Abrams Is Not Leaving Star Wars: Episode VII

“Was J.J. Abrams planning on leaving Star Wars VII?”, you may ask. Well, you’re confusion is justified, as there have been little more than typical rumors on the subject. Still, Lucasfilm issued a statement yesterday stating that J.J. Abrams will continue to happily work away at the next Star Wars film. The company apparently felt that the small amount of online speculation that Abrams was dropping out needed to be addressed, and responded swiftly to assure us that J.J. Abrams will in fact continue his monopoly on big budget films with “star” in the title for the foreseeable future.

Star Trek Into Darkness Goes, and Goes, Just Not Very Boldly

Into Darkness, that colon-less second installment of New Trek kicking off the summer season is a lot of things, including plentifully humorous, bombastic, well-designed, and confused about its purpose. Like the villain that menaced us from all those teaser posters, Into Darkness makes us wonder what, ultimately, it’s up to. Identity is a key factor to wonder about as, two movies in, even casual Trekkie patience is worn thin by a stream of visual and idealistic incursions that belong to other films. Make no mistake; Into Darkness is a good popcorn-crunching experience, swift on its feet and full of action and jokes. It’s just not, like its predecessor, much of a Star Trek film.

Ensign, take us to SPOILERS.

I Guess This Charming Leonard Nimoy/Zachary Quinto Sketch is a Car Commercial Or Something

Emma Watson, Zachary Quinto, & The Pitch Perfect Cast Experience Ellen’s Kid Reporters

The other day we posted a still from this interview session of Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine with The Ellen Show’s kid reporters/singing sensations, Sophia Grace and Rosie. The video has surfaced and features the adorable duo speaking with a few other stars backstage at the MTV Movie Awards. I’m not sure what part is my favorite, their photo-op with Emma Watson or watching the cast of Pitch Perfect try to upstage them at their speciality.

What Does Star Trek Into Darkness Have In Common With Princesses?

So much wonderful in this photo, it doesn’t even need to be explained. In other news, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine are counting the minutes until they can talk about Star Trek Into Darkness for real. “The good news is we’re about two weeks away from being able to actually talk about it,” Quinto told MTV, with Pine adding, “It’ll be nice not to have to lie anymore.”

Now, release the video from this interview ASAP, Ellen.

Does Anyone Care About Spock? Zachary Quinto Is On The Case. [VIDEO]

Poor Zachary Quinto. To some Star Trek fans, he will never be Spock. And to some people he’s just a guy in a leather jacket and glasses harassing them on the street. Funny or Die’s Billy Eichner took the actor on a wild jog down the streets of Manhattan to see if anyone would recognize him as Spock and/or care. The responses are pretty great.

Everyone Involved in Star Trek Into Darkness Is a Giant Troll [VIDEO]

First J.J. Abrams shares three frames of Star Trek Into Darkness on Conan. And now Zachary Quinto has contributed to the trollery with his own clip—or, well, “clip”—from the upcoming Trek sequel.

“I have a lot of respect for you and your audience,” said the actor to Conan, “and I wanted to bring something for you guys that was more than [three frames], you know.” Sure, Quinto. Sure. I don’t want to spoil the clip for you, but let’s just say it involves greenscreen and something resembling a Spock snuggie.

Simon Pegg tweeted yesterday that the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer is premiering online this Thursday. I swear, if Chris Pine shows up on Conan tonight to explain that the star of the film is actually—surprise!—William Shatner, I am going to scream.

And then possibly die laughing. I love this cast.
