J.J. Abrams gave his first extensive interview on 'Star Wars: Episode 7' to Playboy and spoke at length about the challenges of being in control of 'Star Wars' and 'Star Trek' - two of the biggest sci-fi franchises in history. He talks about how he'll be collaborating with George Lucas, his feeling on the prequels and how you shouldn't assume he won't direct 'Star Trek 3.'
The first 'Star Trek Into Darkness' reviews have already begun to roll in even though the film doesn't officially hit theaters until May 17. J.J.

So, is the new 'Star Trek' worth your time and money?
'Star Trek Into Darkness' is coming to theaters this May 15 and will include a couple changes from J.J. Abrams' first run at the 'Star Trek' world.

Not too long after the new 'Star Wars: Episode 7'-led trilogy was announced by Disney and its acquisition of Lucasfilm, it was revealed that the studio was looking to kick things off in the summer of 2015.

The moment 'LOST' creator J.J. Abrams attached his name to a buzz-worthy, high-concept sci-fi drama on another broadcast network, viewers assumed 'Revolution' would take the same long and winding road toward answering any of its over-arching mysteries. Now, however, it seems showrunner Eric Kripke was right to assure us this wasn't the case, as last night's "Ghosts" revealed the true cause of 'Revolution's' global blackout! Get the answer to the big mystery inside!
Think back to 2002, when Warner Bros. was eager to relaunch the Superman franchise and had J.J. Abrams as the man leading the way. It's almost amazing to think - knowing now that Abrams was practically begged by Lucasfilm to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7' - that Warner Bros. didn't move forward with Abrams' vision for 'Superman' but his 'Flyby' was eventually scrapped and replaced with Bryan Singer's 'Superman Returns' a few years later. Now, as 'Man of Steel' is set to hit theaters this summer, Abrams reveals what his 'Superman' movie would've looked like and what, if anything, it has in common with Zack Snyder's upcoming film.
