Simon Pegg Geekily Pranked Co-Stars on 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Set

You might think Benedict Cumberbatch is the kinda smarty you just couldn't get one over on, but Simon Pegg's got just the right amount of nerd cred to make it happen.

In this behind-the-scenes set video from "Star Trek Into Darkness," Pegg conspired with the makeup team to create "Neutron Cream," a substance said to help protect the cast from excess neutrons floating around in the laser room ('cause wouldn't you fall for that?), and Cumberbatch — or as Pegg calls him, Cumbersbumberswumbers — totally got gotten.

The 9 Dumbest Plot Points of Summer 2013

Man of Steel Warner Bros.

All told the movies of summer 2013 would have to get an A … for Average. Well, or maybe a B, for Blah. There were a few high points ("Iron Man Three," "The Conjuring," "This Is the End"), a few low points ("The Lone Ranger," "After Earth," "R.I.P.D."), and a whole mess that landed somewhere in-between.

What seemed to really come in abundance, though, in movies of varying degrees of quality, were head-scratching plot points, the things that made you go, "Hmmm … that was f**king stupid." Get More »

Zachary Quinto: 'Star Trek 3' Filming to Start Next Year...With J.J. Abrams?!

Paramount Paramount

Live long and prosper — that's certainly what the folks at Paramount Pictures are hoping their "Star Trek" film franchise'll be able to do at the box office.  And it looks like the studio might just be aiming to set the threepeat into motion sooner than later as Zachary Quinto has spilled the beans that they might be eyeing a 2014 start for "Star Trek 3"...with J.J. Abrams directing.

According to BuzzHub, while Quinto was present for a Q&A interview session on Friday, July 12 at the 2013 Galway Film Fleadh in Galway City, Ireland, he let it slip that all that "Star Trek Into Darkness" cash had the studio wanting light speed turnaround on a third installment to the spacey franchise.

"'Star Trek 3' should be filming, I suppose, next year," he said in response to a question about the J.J. Abrams-led reboot series. "It's going to be made a lot quicker than the last one. That's the plan, although nothing is confirmed yet."

Quinto also reportedly mentioned that he believes Abrams himself intends to direct "Star Trek 3," which, for those keeping count of all of Abrams' commitments — he's got "Star Wars: Episode VII" heading for production in London early next year as well — might be a tad baffling.

Interestingly enough, Quinto also declared that he'll not be re-teaming with Abrams on that other intergalactic reboot, though he did not say why.

Dear Hollywood: Whatever Happened to a Bright Future?

After Earth Columbia Pictures

Once upon a time, the future was going to be awesome. We were promised flying cars, robots that would wait on us hand and foot and possibly jet packs, just for the hell of it.

And now that we're actually living in that future, it is, in fact, awesome. Sure, we might not have any of those specific things, but we do have smartphones, the Internet and Video On Demand, allowing us to watch movies in high definition at our own convenience. Yes, the future is awesome.

Except in the movies. Because in the movies, man, the future royally sucks. Get More »

The 9 Best Movie Vines So Far

Vine Vine

Vine is to YouTube what flash fiction is to the short story, and the increasingly popular little video app is gaining a lotta traction in the movie biz right about now because, well, there's a ton of hilarity potential.

Sure, one could make a series of hoity-toity Tribeca Film Festival-worthy six-second shorts with the program, too (yawn), but who wouldn't rather see things like rap song/ Disney movie mashups and random celebrity impersonation samples and brief homemade movie reboots? Get More »

Listen to Benedict Cumberbatch Talk American

There are some things that just don't go together: oil and water; wine and Twitter; Jimmy Choos and a hardhat ... You get the idea. And as much as Americans seem to love "Star Trek Into Darkness" star Benedict Cumberbatch, he's not quite ready to pledge fealty to, as he put it, "the stars and stripes."

For the latest MTV After Hours special, Benedict Cumberbatch gave American Talk his very best go, and he was totally down to pimp the health benefits of the McRib and to start going by Sherlock Awesomepants (though only because the surname portion has the same number of syllables as his own). Also, his Arnold Schwarzenegger impression was pretty legit. Get More »
