English actor Simon Pegg has enough geek credits on his resume to earn a lifetime pass at Comic-Con. He's played an unwitting zombie fighter in "Shaun of the Dead," the best friend to an alien in "Paul" and will fight an army of blue-eyed somethings in this summer's "The World's End." It's Pegg's role as Scotty in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" films, however, that really endears him to the Hall H crowd.
Pegg returns this week as the wisecracking intergalactic mechanic in "Star Trek Into Darkness," the follow-up to 2009's immensely popular reboot of "Star Trek." As the crew of the Starship Enterprise faces a mysterious villain (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) hell-bent on destroying Starfleet, Scotty serves as the moral backbone of the team, not to mention its most persistent source of comic relief.
NextMovie caught up with Pegg ahead of the May 17 release of "Star Trek Into Darkness" and chatted about everything from intergalactic drinking pals to whether J.J. Abrams' other "Star" franchise will keep him from trekking once more. Get More »
Some say the world will end in fire, some say ice. From what we've tasted of desire, though, we're pretty sure it will end at the bottom of an empty pint glass — unless, of course, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have anything to say about it.
It's summer, summer, summertime, time to sit back and unwind, as The Fresh Prince once rhymed. Iron Man, Wolverine, Superman and Hit-Girl are suiting up and the AC is pumping as studios trot out their big guns, eager to put butts in the seats with big stars, bigger explosions and lots of numbers after titles.
That's right, nearly a third of our list is sequels, there's even more that didn't make it, and that doesn't even count the reboots and potential franchise-starters in store as we dive headfirst into our glistening pool of summer movie bliss. Get More »
Man, 2012 was a pretty darn good year for films, right? "The Avengers," "Lincoln," "The Hunger Games," "Silver Linings Playbook," seriously, we could go on and on, as this past year has been one of the best in recent memory.
And that has us even more amped up to see what Hollywood does for an encore. Sure, 2013 has some pretty big shoes to fill, but there are always news movies to see, new adventures to experience, new stars to meet and new pop culture obsessions waiting to be born.
So with that in mind, we've put together our list of the top 50 Movies We’re All About in 2013. Because last year is just so last year. Get More »
Nowadays in Movieland the magic word is "trilogy." Getting one thing made is great, congrats, but THREE movies means you can infinitely repackage it, box sets, marathon showings on TBS, and each successive part pays off dividends since the prior entries were just one long commercial for the new chapter.
Whether they're "The Chronicles of Narnia" or the "Pusher" trilogy they always leave us wanting more, which is precisely why we're so excited that the funniest, loosest series going right now is about to complete its holy trinity: Three Flavours Cornetto. Get More »
