WARNING: CRAZY SPOILERS HEREIN.
It's become a bit of a tradition in Hollywood for the creators of pop culture-friendly franchises to hide a few Easter eggs in the film for hardcore fans to find and get giggly over. "Iron Man 3" did it just this month while Marvel's other giant blockbuster, "The Avengers," perfected the art last year.
But while those movies were at least sometimes subtle about their references and in-jokes, "Star Trek Into Darkness" has taken a somewhat different approach: smacking you right in the face with them at every single opportunity. Get More »
"Shall we begin?" We sure would like to, Mr. Super-Sexy "Star Trek" Bad Guy.
"Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch is ready for the big leagues with his villainous turn in "Star Trek Into Darkness," director J.J. Abrams' follow-up to his beam-me-up-and-then-some 2009 reboot. And this is only the beginning, as the handsome British thespian has featured roles in such high-profile upcoming films as "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" (as Smaug himself), "August: Osage County" and Guillermo del Toro's "Crimson Peak."
Check out our collection of pics featuring Benedict Cumberbatch looking hot n' dapper in movies, on television, in magazines and on the red carpet.
Let's face it, it sucks when people die. Except sometimes in the movie, because then it gives filmmakers an opportunity to put together an amazing ensemble cast for one of those big family dramas where everyone comes together and their shared grief causes them all to say a bunch of stuff nobody should probably say out loud.
Hey, if someone has to die to give us a new Meryl Streep movie, then so be it. Get More »
[From MTV News] In our exclusive 30-minute interview with the cast of "Star Trek Into Darkness" and director J.J. Abrams, the conversation touched on just about everything under the stars. From Spock's eyebrows to laughing on set, the topics were as vast as the travels of the USS Enterprise.
While it's hard to cover all of the topics touched on during "MTV First: Star Trek Into Darkness" without giving a blow-by-blow, these five takeaways should give you a feel for what went on when MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Abrams and the cast. Get More »
Finally, a man boldly went there.
Look, the beauty of the "Star Trek" franchise is how unabashedly geeky Trekkies can be. Those nerds just don't give a flying eff what anyone outside the Starship Enterprise has to say about them, so there's a ton of fun to be had with it.
Here in this "Star Trek Into Darkness" junket interview with J.J. Abrams and his cast — Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Alice Eve — quirky YouTuber Daniele Rizzo posed as Spocko, a Vulcan-slinging weirdo with no qualms about asking tough questions like who this John Harrison baddie is and how the "crew" feels about the term "V.I.L.F."
Because...sure. Get More »
Usually when a new international trailer hits the interwebs, fans carefully pour over it to parse out every small bit of new footage. And generally speaking, while there are usually a couple new scenes here and there to whet your appetite, the meat of the piece remains the same. For instance, if the clip is intended for British audiences, it's basically the regular trailer with maybe an extra five seconds of Big Ben or something. That sort of thing.
Well, J.J. Abrams has just said to hell with that, because Apple's new international trailer for "Star Trek Into Darkness" is comprised almost entirely of footage we've never seen before — and it's totally amazeballs. Get More »
"You think your world is safe?" asks the villainous Benedict Cumberbatch (that's right, we've come to the conclusion that he's just playing himself) in "Star Trek Into Darkness." "It is an illusion," he warns. Now, that lack of safety has spilled onto your own web browser.
Things look even more bleak for the crew of the Enterprise with the "Star Trek Into Darkness" motion poster, which paints a grim portrait of Cumberbatch's destructive vengeance with falling pieces of what looks to be some building in 23rd century San Francisco. Whether this guy is Khan or Gary Mitchell or just some dude named John Harrison (or, as we theorize, Cumberbatch himself), he's got no love for the Federation ... or for California property in general.
Check out the motion poster below. "Star Trek Into Darkness" opens May 17.
Now, this is what we're talkin' about. Following up on that ominous little one-minute teaser from two weeks ago, Paramount Pictures has finally unleashed a full-length theatrical trailer for its long awaited "Star Trek" reboot sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness."
While the first promo warned of the "illusion" of safety and peace on earth - with Benedict Cumberbatch introduced as the breathy foe - the villainy gets a little more personal in the two-minute trailer.
It's been a long, long wait for fans of 2009's "Star Trek" reboot, but today we finally have our first look at next year's sequel, "Star Trek Into Darkness." So does this new teaser trailer from J.J. Abrams live up to expectations?
Well, if you were expecting Benedict Cumberbatch to totally steal the show, then the answer is "yes." Get More »
Does anybody remember laughter? Laughter, in conjunction with beautiful people holding hands and smiling on red carpets?
In a world where Brangelina, Bennifer, Bennifer 2 and TomKat (sorry, Suri, have a cupcake) have all been earnestly embraced by the media and public at large, we have but one whole-hearted plea: just let us have some fun again. There's nothing wrong with being obsessed with celebrity couples (we are, totally), but you know what else is totally allowed? Laughter.
On that note, please consider throwing your support behind CumberPoots. Or, for the uneducated, Benedict Cumberbatch and Imogen Poots.
