There's no getting around it: JJ Abrams has transformed the 'Star Trek' franchise into an action series.

Part of the burden that comes with something as big as 'Star Wars: Episode 7' is the constant chatter of which stars might be boarding a "galaxy far, far away." Thanks to J.J. Abrams' involvement in the new trilogy, everyone's been wondering whether or not he'll be bringing over some of his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' talent into the new 'Star Wars' universe.

How is it that 'Star Trek Into Darkness' is only a few months away and we still don't know the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's mysterious, trenchcoat-wearing villain?

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.)

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.

"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.
