Movie toy lines have a nasty habit of revealing too much information about the movies on which they're based. Either that, or we all just read too much into them. Regardless, it's become common place for die-hard fans to draw their own conclusions, which is what we did when Hasbro's 2013 Toy Fair presented it's 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Kre-O toys. So what potential spoilers were picked up?
'Star Trek Into Darkness' hits theaters on May 17th and everybody will be seeing it. Those are just the facts. (That lovely Super Bowl spot only solidified this.) But how cool would it be to see it before everybody else? On an IMAX screen?! Paramount has just given a supremely lucky handful of fans that very opportunity. Find out how you can be a part of this early 'Star Trek Into Darkness' screening.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard the news: JJ Abrams is officially directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII.' Even if you didn't hear it, you surely felt the rumble that shook the entire planet after the news caused the entire internet to break in half. While fans and critics alike debated what this meant for the 'Star Wars' franchise, another question arose. With Abrams departing for a galaxy far far away, what was going to happen to the 'Star Trek' franchise?
"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.
One can't be aware of 'The Big Bang Theory' without knowledge of its reverence for all things (maybe some things) 'Star Trek,' but upcoming episode "The Bakersfield Expedition" might push it to the limit. The latest from our favorite eggheads sees Leonard, Sheldon, Wolowitz and Raj all decked out head to to toe as their favorite 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' characters, getting a lot more than they bargained for on the way to a convention. Get a sneak peek of the latest 'Big Bang Theory' inside!
The last 'Star Trek Into Darkness' trailer wasn't enough for you? And the 9-minutes of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' footage in IMAX theaters with 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' wasn't enough either? How about yet another 'Star Trek Into Darkness' trailer this morning to whet your whistle! And the good news is, we get a ton of new footage in here.
When it comes to 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' the main talking point is without question the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's character. Is he playing an updated version of a classic villain, say, Khan for example? The word thus far from the creative team has been a definitive no -- but who ever trusts what these notoriously secretive folk say anyway?
Today the denials get firmer, as we have Cumberbatch himself weighing in, talking in some detail about who his character is and what his name isn't -- and that it is NOT Khan.
It feels like J.J. Abrams and company are going to keep playing footsies with the "is he or isn't he Khan" in regards to Star Trek Into Darkness's villain (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), but they did let out some details about the film and its cast today at their first big press event for the summer film, including a real connection to 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.'
