I need to get something off my chest.
I am really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really not happy that J.J. Abrams will be directing “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Keep reading »
J.J. Abramspalooza: He’s Producing A Third “Star Trek,” Doing 2 TV Pilots And, Oh Yeah, “Star Wars: Episode VII” Is Confirmed
Sorry if you don’t like J.J. Abrams. You must be having a rough time of it right now.
First things first, the rumor that he’s directing “Star Wars: Episode VII” is no longer a rumor: Disney has confirmed it.
In a press release sent out by the Mouse House, LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy sung her praises of Abrams, saying:
“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie. J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”
The costumes look great. Some of them were very cumbersome and heavy, but some were very snug. You can almost see what religion I am.
Rrrrow! I’ll bet they look great, Benedict Cumberbatch. Of course, this joke actually means nothing because circumcision isn’t so religiously based anymore, but we thank him kindly for the visual. It sounds like the wardrobe for this movie is the men’s version of the Hervé Léger bandage dress. [io9]
See? The internet can be used for good!
Three days ago, a post was made on the ”Star Trek” subreddit about a man dying from cancer. It was a heartfelt plea from both the man’s wife and friend to try and get him a viewing of the J.J. Abrams film, “Star Trek Into Darkness.” Here’s what they had to say. Read more…
Okay, Enough Messing Around, JJ Abrams — Who Is Benedict Cumberbatch Playing In “Star Trek Into Darkness”?
“Star Trek Into Darkness,” JJ Abrams second “Star Trek” reboot film, isn’t in theaters until next May, but details on the films plot are slowly being leaked to the press. However, the biggest question remains: which villain is Benedict Cumberbatch playing? Producer/writer Roberto Orci had said that Cumberbatch would be playing someone well known from the “Star Trek” canon (i.e. not a new character created for the film). When I posted the teaser trailer for the film last week, I parsed the two most popular theories: that Cumberbatch is playing either Khan (the villain at the center of “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”) or Gary Mitchell, a character that appeared in an episode of the original series.
Well, this week, the filmmakers released this new image from the film, with Cumberbatch’s character identified as “John Harrison.” Who the fuck is that? (Warning: there are some spoilers after the jump!) Keep reading »
