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 »
This week: Tim Burton expands his short stop-motion film "Frankenweenie" into a charming feature-length film about a boy who uses science to bring his beloved pet back to life.
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.
In the past, the extremely detailed, jiggling, bloody cellulite of punctured, tattooed flesh was something that you'd have to go all the way to Japan to see. But with "Dredd 3D," it's playing at a theater near you.
"Dredd 3D," a very entertaining, bone-crunching midnight movie, will linger in Fanboy conversation for quite some time. It'll be Exhibit A whenever someone starts whining about an upcoming remake. "What about 'Dredd,' huh? What about 'Dredd?" I can practically hear the trolls saying now. It's not really a valid argument – because unlike, say, "Total Recall," or "Straw Dogs" or the upcoming "RoboCop" (or the threatened "Videodrome,") the first "Judge Dredd," wasn't, by any measurable accounts, any good.
Rather than focus on it being this being exception to the RAB rule (RAB standing for Remakes Always Blow) let's take a step back and applaud "Dredd 3D" for a more noble but less obvious accomplishment. Get More »
Chances are you grew up watching "The Simpsons." So imagine what it'd be like if one day you were offered a role playing Bart (or Maggie) Simpson in a Hollywood blockbuster. Hey, it could happen …
That's sort of what's happened to Karl Urban. The action star best known as Éomer in "Lord of the Rings" and Bones in 2009's "Star Trek" grew up reading the "Judge Dredd" comics as a youth in New Zealand. Now, some 20-odd years later, he's the man behind the mask in the buzzed-about reboot "Dredd 3D."
And no, unlike with Sly Stallone's unfortunate 1995 version of "Judge Dredd," you will not see Urban's full face in this movie. Get More »
With Halloween fast approaching, chances are you're starting to get that familiar feeling of dread. But this year, thanks to our brand new giveaway, two lucky fans are about to receive something even more thrilling: A feeling of "Dredd 3D."
And this one is all treat and no trick. Get More »
The cinematic odyssey of amnesiatic CIA assassin Jason Bourne left a trail of bodies, property damage and wrecked cars, but there's apparently still more carnage to be mined from this franchise in this week's "The Bourne Legacy."
Picking up after (and sometimes during) the previous three movies, "Legacy" presents a new agent named Aaron Cross dealing with government duplicity as many, many bullets are fired at him, seemingly at all times. As Jeremy Renner inherits the Bourne mantle, we look back at his predecessor to help you catch up. It might be difficult, though — Matt Damon can run really fast. Get More »
Ever since Lionsgate announced they were going to do a live action adaptation of the cult classic comic book "Judge Dredd," fans have been praying for one thing: Please, please let it be better than the horrible 1995 Sylvester Stallone version.
Well, the first trailer for "Dredd" has at last arrived — and it's up to you to pass judgment. Get More »
There might be another "Chronicles of Riddick" movie, some day. And if that day comes, Karl Urban will be there.
The "Star Trek" actor will be reprising his role as the ever-scowling Lord Vaako in "The Chronicles of Riddick: Dead Man Stalking," a movie that's nowhere close to getting the green light, according to Bloody Disgusting. Get More »
