Pip pip cheerio, you dodgy codswallop ...
That's just a sample of the kinda chippy lingo American-as-pie director J.J. Abrams probably needs to familiarize himself with sooner than later because he'll be heading across the pond to work on "Star Wars: Episode VII" before the year is through. Even if he's none-too-thrilled about the transition. Get More »
"Star Wars" just wouldn't be "Star Wars" without the contributions of legendary composer John Williams, whose "Star Wars Theme" and "Imperial March" have become two of the most famous songs in the history of cinema.
And now we officially don't have to imagine a "Star Wars" world without Williams, as the 81-year-old Hollywood icon confirmed in an interview with Total Film that he is all in for "Star Wars: Episode VII." Get More »
Brace yourselves, Cumberbitches.
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 »

And, surprisingly enough, there's actually quite a bit of information floating around out there about the presumed third installment in the hit sci-fi franchise relaunch. With that in mind, we've compiled all the rumors, revealing interviews and MAJOR SPOILERS into one handy guide. Get More »
The biggest problem with the "Star Wars" prequels (besides, you know, Jar-Jar) was in the intervening 15 years between episodes fans had basically made those movies in their heads, and nothing could live up to the majesty of whatever they had concocted.
Luckily, J.J. Abrams has taken that into consideration, and seems open to taking suggestions directly from fanboys as he crafts "Star Wars Episode VII," as in last night's interview with Jimmy Kimmel where he took pointers from a guy with a light saber and a fat dude in Slave Leia drag (natch). And, surprise, O.G. "Star Trek" stars Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) and William Shatner popped up to offer their own expert opinions. Get More »
While most sci-fi fans are over the moon about "Star Trek Into Darkness" and the whole J.J. Abrams reboot, you may be surprised to learn that there are still quite a few "Star Trek" traditionalists who decry the new films as a monstrous blasphemy. A self-professed "Star Wars" fan turning "Star Trek" into a shoot first and ask questions later action franchise? No way.
And that got us wondering: Which is actually better, the new "Star Trek" or the old "Star Trek"? Get More »
"Star Trek Into Darkness" blasts into theaters (and, uh, darkness) this week and for most fans, it's a pretty damn exciting moment — all their favorite sci-fi heroes, finally back on the big screen, ready to save the future. Yee-hah.
But for some people, this whole "Star Trek" thing is still a bit of a mystery. So if you're one of those uninitiated that is curious about "Star Trek Into Darkness" but is intimidated by all the decades worth of baggage that comes along with the franchise, don't worry, because we're here to demystify "Star Trek" so you can go to the theater without a care in the world and see for yourself what the fuss is about.

|Exclusive - J.J. Abrams Extended Interview Pt. 1|
"I'm not gonna even go to these conventions anymore, I'm just gonna sit on your lap."
That's Jon Stewart speaking for pretty much all of us to "Lost" mogul J.J. Abrams on how flabbergasted he is that one man gets to control the fates of both the "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" properties during a very engaged 12-minute geek-out on "The Daily Show" to promote "Star Trek Into Darkness."

[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.
