When Benedict Cumberbatch appeared as the antagonist of Star Trek Into Darkness, the identity of the character he was playing was kept very secret, to the point that JJ Abrams straight-up lied about it. But apparently Cumberbatch spilled the beans to one special person.
At the end of Star Trek Into Darkness, it seems like Carol Marcus (Alice Eve) is poised to join the Enterprise and become an important member of the crew (and break up the near-total sausage party that is the cast). But come Star Trek Beyond, she’s nowhere to be found. Now we know why.
Gods of Egypt is finally premiering this week, but no matter how weel it does (or how poorly) it will always be remembered mainly for causing such an uproar, the director was forced to apologize. But it’s just the latest in a long line of movies where characters of color are played by white actors. Movies that should…
Star Trek Into Darkness had plenty of unfortunate flaws, but if there’s one thing that it’s still mocked for, it’s how the production team approached keeping the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain away from moviegoers. Two years after the film came out, they’re finally starting to admit that was a mistake.
Terminator Genisys didn’t just underperform at the U.S. box office—it also attracted an audience that skewed older. Maybe not surprising, for a film that rewards intricate knowledge of a movie from 1984. But which movie sequel relied the most on references to earlier films?
Villains sure do like to be captured on purpose, don't they? We've seen it again and again as a trope, but it's not always a bad thing. Sometimes, it does show just how brilliant our bad guy is. And sometimes, it shows just how stupid our heroes are. Here are the best — and worst — times a villain got sent to the…
How many lens flares are there in the whole of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movies? A lot. And some crazy rounded them all up into two videos just to inform us all of the light bright insanity that is a lens flare.
Greetings, my little stamp-lickers! I wish I had some kind of new, amazing post-apocalyptic adventure to share with you, but after Ape City, I'm taking a break. Maybe sleet nor snow nor pouring rain can't stop the mail, but a bunch of angry intelligent apes can make me take a vacation. But not from your letters!
You've seen brief glimpses of the shenanigans aboard the Starship Enterprise, but now get the whole space enchilada. The entire gag reel from Star Trek Into Darkness has been released and it is glorious. Behold the majesty!
Regardless of how you might feel about Star Trek Into Darkness, there's no arguing that seeing Simon Pegg, Christopher Pine, Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch goof around on set is anything but a good time. Seriously!
Remember how Paramount decided to split the special features for Star Trek Into Darkness among the Target, Best Buy and iTunes Blu-ray releases? Well, it's taken almost a full year, but a decent STiD Blu-ray chock full of all the extras is finally on it's way! There's just one small catch...
No matter your feelings on nu-Trek, this is very cool — for a limited time, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness will have a limited re-release in which the scores for both films will be played live by an accompanying orchestra.
Those Star Trek Into Darkness deleted scenes that were removed from the DVD/Blu-ray release in order to make you buy a second better (or decent) Collector's Edition release later are now available for your perusal. They fill more than a few of STiD's plotholes, including why Carol Marcus is suddenly British.
You might recall that the Star Trek Into Darkness DVD/Blu-ray release was somewhat... umm, feature-light. Among other things, it didn't include any deleted scenes — but now those scenes have turned up, and you can read descriptions of them.
Check out a blazingly awesome piece of newly revealed concept art from Star Trek Into Darkness, created by artist Victor Martinez. He recently created a website to showcase his work for Trek 2, Oz the Great and Powerful, and the never-made Fantastic Voyage and Captain Nemo films.
For architecture nerds, the best part about Star Trek: Into Darkness is undeniably the phantasmagoric depiction of a 23rd-century San Francisco. Towering skyscrapers lined the horizon and flying vehicles weaved between them. It was all so beautiful—until a starship crashed into Earth and wiped out half the city.
We may have possibly had a few issues with Star Trek Into Darkness, but I think we can all agree it looked pretty. Industrial Light and Magic just released two behind-the-VFX videos, including how they transformed a shot of pretty much nothing into the Enterprise crashing through a massive metropolis.
To err is human, to forgive divine. So I guess if you forgive these people and companies for making some of the most moronic decisions of this year, you're a god. Congratulations! Now cast your divine attention to learning how DC, Cartoon Network, Disney and more bungled their way through 2013.
