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 »
Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.
Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."
Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »
[From MTV News] Just like Kirk and Spock in "Star Trek Into Darkness," Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have developed a relationship that's seemingly built on a firm bedrock of respect and bewilderment. While attending the red carpet premiere of "Star Trek Into Darkness" in New York City, the two actors revealed that their relationship toward each other has grown to be as playfully opposed as the Enterprise's captain and his first officer.
"The worst thing is that Zach likes to play these ridiculous vocabulary games," Pine revealed, "which he will tell everybody he wins, which is such a crock of bullsh--." Get More »
[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.
While it's hard to cover all of the topics touched on during "MTV First: Star Trek Into Darkness" without giving a blow-by-blow, these five takeaways should give you a feel for what went on when MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Abrams and the cast. Get More »
The Force is definitely with these two ... Oh wait, wrong space franchise. Right. So, "greetings."
Kidding, kids. Don't go gettin' those tighty-whiteys in a wad, 'cause there's some fun to be had here.
It was absolutely bound to happen that Spock (Zachary Quinto) and Spock Prime (Leonard Nimoy) would come to a battle of wits, with "Star Trek Into Darkness" offering up an on-screen reunion of the two big-eared human-Vulcan hybrids, and now it has. Get More »
How pumped are you for "Star Trek Into Darkness"? You just can't wait until May 17 to see it on the big screen; you'll be the first in line! You've seen all the trailers and followed all the news, but how would you like to see a little sumpin' sumpin' right now?
Kirk in the captain's chair! Spock in space armor! It's all here, all in the video above.
Along with, uh, all kinds of other stuff you don't really want to see. Get More »
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 »
[From MTV News] On April 14, the MTV Movie Awards will feel the thunder from Down Under as "Pitch Perfect" actress Rebel Wilson stars as host of this year's celebration of all things cinematical. But, as we've learned from Wilson's hilarious car-chase promos with "Magic Mike" hunk Channing Tatum, she could always use a little back-up (or feel up, as the case may be). And now she's getting it—the back-up part, at least—with a slew of presenters announced today. Get More »
Usually when a new international trailer hits the interwebs, fans carefully pour over it to parse out every small bit of new footage. And generally speaking, while there are usually a couple new scenes here and there to whet your appetite, the meat of the piece remains the same. For instance, if the clip is intended for British audiences, it's basically the regular trailer with maybe an extra five seconds of Big Ben or something. That sort of thing.
Well, J.J. Abrams has just said to hell with that, because Apple's new international trailer for "Star Trek Into Darkness" is comprised almost entirely of footage we've never seen before — and it's totally amazeballs. Get More »
Billy Eichner hosts "Billy on the Street," a gem of a television program on FunnyOrDie.com and on the Fuse Network every Friday. He recently hosted Star Trek's Zachary Quinto for a delightful game called "It's Spock! Do You Care?," in which Eichner runs around Manhattan with Quinto and asks unsuspecting Manhattanites if they care that the guy who plays Spock is right next to them.
And though we at NextMovie might trip over ourselves to wax philosophical with the Star Trek star, it turns out most New Yorkers wouldn't, necessarily, with a few exceptions. In fact, most of the people in this video are just horrified. Get More »
