Before we all get to see 'Star Trek Into Darkness' in theaters, we had the good fortune to speak with our old chum Simon Pegg, following a riveting conversation with his co-star Karl Urban about all things Bones McCoy,
For Scotty fans, 'Into Darkness' is a big wet kiss, as our ol' Aberdeen pub crawler/inadvertent inventor of transwarp beaming is all over this movie, offering laughs, cheers and thrills. Take a look at our conversation to learn about why, one day, he barfed on set. (Also, there are itty bitty SPOILERS in here, but all pertaining to stuff that happens early enough. Just read the damn thing and don't be that guy.)
One of the main questions regarding 'Star Wars: Episode 7' is, "Will J.J. Abrams be able to follow in George Lucas' footsteps?" Many, including 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Simon Pegg, believes yes, as he's already reinvigorated the 'Star Trek' universe. But what exactly will he bring to the next chapter? As Pegg said, "All the things that we loved about the first three."
A group of friends try to finish an epic pub crawl despite of an alien invasion.
It's almost silly to talk about 'Star Trek Into Darkness' deleted scenes; a movie that hasn't even hit theaters yet. But we spoke with star Simon Pegg this weekend and described to us a scene not in the final film that will be included on the 'Star Trek Into Darkness' DVD and, even though it's a ways off, we already can't wait to see this.
We don't have all the facts about 'The World's End' -- Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's latest genre-bending comedy -- but when these three team up, we don't really need to know anything (other than "When can I see it?!"). However, the latest quad poster for the summer comedy has arrived, and it offers some hints as to what we can expect.
For some 'Star Trek' fans, it was a slap to the face when director J.J. Abrams stopped going where no man has gone before and decided to journey to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. How will they feel when they see Abrams discussing how great 'Star Wars' is with the chief engineer of the Enterprise, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott (aka Simon Pegg)?
We're about as excited for 'The World's End' as we are for any Edgar Wright directed film...meaning that we're excited about it a whole bunch. Like "if we could only see one movie in 2013, it would be this one." Thanks to some schedule changes, it looks like we'll get to see the latest from Wright and frequent collaborator Simon Pegg sooner than we expected.
The one problem with 'Star Wars Episode 7' news is that at least half of it going to be absolute bunk or inflated misinformation. Those that remember the years leading up to 'Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace' will recall the sheer amount of BS that flew over the then-young internet and how much of it was accepted as fact by fans. So let's take the rumor that director Alfonso Cuaron and beloved geek actor Simon Pegg are joining the 'Star Wars' universe with a pound or two of salt.
