'Star Trek: Into Darkness' doesn't hit theaters until May of next year, but fans are more than looking forward to seeing the much talked about first footage, said to premiere along with screenings of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' come December 14. Bring on the marketing! Presumably in preparation for the big reveal, Paramount has released the first teaser poster for 'Star Trek: Into Darkness.' Check it out in full after the break.
J.J. Abrams has long loved keeping secrets from his audience, and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' is no exception. The film is slated to come out May 17, 2013, which means we may yet see a teaser soon (undoubtedly we'll get one before the end of the year). But for now Abrams is only showing three frames.
Well, that'll wake you up in the morning. With the imminent end of 'Fringe' beginning on September 28, it was only a matter of time before series executive producer J.H. Wyman would call upon movie/TV magnate J.J. Abrams for another go on the telly, but is the latest effort another out-there sci-fi romp, or something a little more down-to-Earth? Will FOX be quick on the trigger?
Imagine you were to form a cinema nerd supergroup. Wouldn't you want Edgar Wright and J.J. Abrams in the mix? Well the two are working together on 'Collider' which Abrams will be producing, and Wright came up with the story. The script is being handled by Mark Protosevitch, who's probably best known for penning 'I Am Legend.'
When a filmmaker like J.J. Abrams spends so much of his time keeping secrets about his latest film from the audience, any new nugget feels like a revelation. And so - confirming an old rumor - it looks like Abrams let the cat out of the bag at last night's MTV Movie Awards that Klingons will have a role in 'Star Trek 2.'
Oh, happy day, and strawberry milkshakes for everyone! After a long, and arduous process of waiting, 'Fringe' fans can finally rest assured that their beloved sci-fi series will return for a fifth, and conclusively final season. But just how large is FOX's is order, and how will it all end after last week's crazy "Letters of Transit?"
It's hard to think that an entire generation of young folk are more intimately familiar with the 'Star Trek' of J.J. Abrams' reboot franchise, given the decades worth of 5+ TV series, and 10 resulting films, but the idea of bring 'Star Trek' back to TV is hardly a new one. So what are the odds of seeing that materialize in the near future?
Sometimes it takes years of putting your knows to the grindstone before becoming the lead of a major TV series. Some find themselves lucky enough that the studios are willing to take chances. And yet sometimes, it's as easy as "What about this guy? He's already here, so why not?"
