James Franco brought many, uh, distinctive features to his role as Alien, the gun-toting, dreadlocked drug n' arms dealer and part-time rapper of "Spring Breakers." But what's probably most memorable about Alien is the fact that his smile could make you go blind if the light were hitting his mouth just right.
In honor of Alien's trading of boring ol' pearly whites for a tricked-out metal grin, we reimagined a few other movie characters that might benefit from a a set of grillz as well. We actually wouldn't have been surprised to see any of these people in any of the many "Spring Breakers" party scenes. Get More »
With "Star Trek Into Darkness" set to hit theaters in less than two months (May 17, y'all), J.J. Abrams has hit the interview circuit to help get word out about his new sci-fi blockbuster. And everywhere he goes, everyone has just one big question: What's the deal with "Star Wars"?
Lucky for us. Get More »
The new trailer for "Star Trek: Into Darkness" is teeming with explosions, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) roughing up the Enterprise, one very unamused Spock (Zachary Quinto) and tons of stern-faced villainy by Benedict Cumberbatch's dubiously named John Harrison. Trekkies the world over are having a field day right about now with all the juice there is to suck out of this bad boy, and already they've unearthed a massive Easter Egg.
Set your phasers to eeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!, everyone. Get More »
Some people spend most of their time in front of a computer ... and others go out and do stuff like this.
Behold some of the most elaborate and large-scale movie-themed fan art you'll ever see, most of it created under cover of night with a few spray cans and a seething desire to create ... or at least conjure stunning portraits of Neo, Freddy Krueger, Yoda, the Dude and other pop culture icons that shape our everyday lives. If only all walls were this cool.
Though offered a role in the 2009 smash hit space reboot, it turns out Marky Mark didn't want to be part of J.J. Abram's funky "Star Trek" bunch. Why? Well with all that Vulcan-y dialogue and wacky character names like Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, the script was just too blimey confusing for Mark Wahlberg.
During promotions for "Broken City," his latest cop-ster flick also featuring Russell Crowe with words simple enough to follow along at a table read, Wahlberg spoke with Total Film about the one that got away ... and hinted at his hopes of starring in Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII." Get More »
Everyone loves a good wedding: free booze, awkward speeches and creepy DJs — what more could you want? All too often, however, the invites don't live up to the day. (Seriously, if I open one more shimmering envelope and a sliver of cream-colored tissue paper falls out I'm gonna scream.) So when film buffs throw calligraphy and caution to the wind and opt instead for movie-themed wedding invitations, it's time to celebrate. Get More »
William Shatner is more than just a film icon, he's a national treasure. From "Star Trek" to "T.J. Hooker" to The Priceline Negotiator to his amazing career as a musician (seriously, check out his 2004 album "Has Been"), Shatner has pretty much done everything there is to do in show business.
Good things come to those who wait… right? We sure hope so, because after what felt like ages of hopeful anticipation, the news finally broke that "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams is manning "Star Wars: Episode VII," leading to
mass euphoric hysteria excitement all around.
However, just as we're coming down off this contact high, rumors have surfaced that Abrams might not make the initial target release date, which Disney had announced as sometime in 2015. While there was never an official announcement committing to that timeline, we kinda thought it was going to happen by then, what with the public enthusiasm and all. But, according to Cinema Blend, sources in the know have been quoted saying the director "has not committed to that release date" and is reserving the right to push that "Star Wars" date back if his production schedule demands it.
We're torn on this news, as we're eager to see the next installment on the big screen (and we've never been all that patient), but we also want it to be, you know, completely awesome. And it's hard to make a good movie when you don't have the time you need to do it — or so we hear. For now, it seems we just have to sit tight and see what happens. On the plus side, we're getting really good at that.
Is this the
droid "Star Wars" director you were looking for?
Citing "an individual with knowledge of the production," TheWrap.com today reported that none other than "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams would helm the newest installment of the "Star Wars" franchise.
Before we get too excited, take a step back and consider past evidence: The fact that Abrams would sign on to "Star Wars" comes as a huge surprise, considering that in December, he flat-out denied involvement in the Mouse House's newest acquisition, despite calling the franchise "one of my favorite movies of all time."
