"To 3D or not to 3D?" is a question moviegoers often have to ask themselves when hitting the multiplex to see the latest blockbuster, but the debate doesn't stop at the paying customer. Sometimes it's the filmmakers themselves who are dubious about the technology, even as they work with it. This issue has come to light after J.J. Abrams revealed that he himself was not sold on converting his latest, 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' into 3D initially. In fact, he had it forced upon him by the studio.

The question of who will direct the next 'Star Wars' still lingers quite maddeningly; while we would ideally be compiling a shortlist of contenders, we mostly collate who has expressed disinterest or denied involvement.

Star Trek Villain Details

The identity of the villain in 'Star Trek Into Darkness' has been an internet mystery for a year now, with fans speculating that Benedict Cumberbatch could be playing anyone from Khan to Sybok.

News Round-Up: Casting ‘Cinderella’ and Creating a ‘God Particle’

Casting Cinderella
WestEnd Films

Last week, the news broke that the ever-wonderful Cate Blanchett was close to joining director Mark Romanek's 'Cinderella' in the role of the evil stepmother, firmly establishing it as the Hollywood Revision Of A Classic Fairy Tale to watch out for. It still feels odd that the director of 'One Hour Photo' and 'Never Let Me Go' is making a Cinderella movie, but putting quality actors on the screen is the first step in giving us hope. On the heels of the Blanchett news, Variety reports that the short list for the title role is down to three actresses: Saoirse Ronan, Alicia Vikander and Gabriella Wilde. You'll probably recognize Ronan from 'Atonement,' 'The Lovely Bones' and 'Hanna' and if you were unlucky enough to see 'The Three Musketeers' you may remember Wilde, but Vikander seems to be a newcomer, making this role her potential big break and her own potential Cinderella story. Life imitating art and so forth.
