    Women of America – particularly female "Star Trek" fans – co-writer/producer Damon Lindelof has something to say to you: There was no practical reason for Alice Eve to appear in her lingerie in "Star Trek Into Darkness," and he's sorry for that.

    Peter Weller on Star Trek, Getting His Ph.D., and Defending J.J. Abrams by Bilge Ebiri If you saw Star Trek Into Darkness this weekend and couldn't quite place Peter Weller, the actor playing Starfleet Admiral Marcus, allow us to refresh your memory: Weller starred in two of the biggest cult films of the eighties, Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai and RoboCop, as well as in David Cronenberg’s adaptation of William S. Burroughs's The Naked Lunch. He's also had supporting parts on 24, Dexter, Fringe, and House. And if that weren’t enough, the man is currently finishing up a Ph.D. in art...

Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness you will notice that the film is dedicated to post-9/11 veterans. And the connection doesn't end there as Abrams cast four vets from the Mission Continues charity in the film.

    Breitbart - Big Hollywood ^ | May 16, 2013 | Christian Toto
    Director J.J. Abrams' 2009 prequel to the dusty Star Trek property got the space saga out of mothballs and back on the pop culture radar. Star Trek Into Darkness resumes the franchise's penchant for futuristic allegories to modern times. Well, if you consider the Bush years the state of today's foreign policy debates.The '60s series never bludgeoned viewers with its mission statements, and the Star Trek sequel similarly embraces razzle dazzle over speechifying. Abrams is too keenly focused on ambitious action sequences, those maddening lens flares and the bond between the ship's crew that made those prior voyages such a...

    Will the new Star Trek sequel boldly go where much of Hollywood has gone before--bashing President George W. Bush? Benedict Cumberbatch, the British actor who plays the mysterious villain in Star Trek Into Darkness, told BBC America that the new film's futuristic setting didn't stop it from reflecting on recent global events.

    She has dated two actors, Zoe Saldana is quite frankly over it. The Avatar star appears to be making a vow to have less high profile romances in the future. Zoe quite literally bares all as she strips off for a photo shoot while speaking candidly in a new interview. The actress also suggests that when it comes to her future relationships, the person she ends up with may not be a man. ‘[I might] end up with a woman raising my children,’ Zoe tells the new issue of Allure magazine. ‘That’s how androgynous I am.’ Zoe had a famous...

    The first look at Star Trek Into Darkness is making some people angry because they think it looks like some sort of Dark Knight Rises clone. I am not one of them. I loved J.J. Abrams’s first movie so much that nothing could make me dislike this one.

  • Star Trek Into Darkness Review (MovieMantz)

    For a TV show that debuted back in 1966 and struggled in the ratings during its 3-year run, there's no question that "Star Trek" has endured and defied the odds. But in order for it to truly live long and prosper well into the 21st Century (and, hopefully, beyond), it had to change, take risks, think outside the box and appeal to a much bigger audience than just its devoted fan base of Trekkers. Fortunately, that's exactly what the 2009 big screen reboot directed by J.J. Abrams did, and in a very big way. In fact, no review for its...

    Why, in the age of instant global communication, filmmakers insist on telling stories that depend for their impact on surprising twists I simply cannot fathom. But insist they do.But I won’t break the movie reviewer’s Prime Directive.All I can hope to do is try to preserve the element of surprise for you by missing out gigantic chunks of this review. But it’s going to be a bit like describing an elephant without mentioning the trunk.I don’t think it constitutes a spoiler for me to tell you that Star Trek Into Darkness is a brilliant, relentless thrill ride.There’s a growing sub genre of...
