Abrams’ Star Trek into Darkness, starring the star-trekking spaceship Enterprise, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

The hit BBC show Doctor Who released some saddening yet inevitable news this weekend; Matt Smith, who plays the eleventh incarnation of the titular Doctor, will be leaving the show following this year’s Christmas special. Smith’s departure is not unprecedented; in fact, the very nature of the character at the centre of the show is that they regenerate into a new person every so often, a loophole that allows for a seamless departure of a performer without disrupting the show. Speculation on who shall play the Time Lord after Smith’s departure has always existed in some form, never lower than a murmur, and is bound to intensify now that there is a definitive end date to Smith’s tenure. To that end, here are ten performers we’d like to see take on the role of The Doctor after Smith’s departure.

I loved Star Trek: Into Darkness.
I was riveted from the moment I planted my butt in the seat. All the major actors have made their iconic characters their own – Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, John Cho, and Anton Yelchin all turn in stand-out performances – and the script is full of the quips, banter, arguments, and heart-to-hearts that have made the interactions and relationships between the Enterprise crew a cultural treasure.
But Star Trek: Into Darkness also disappointed me.
I suppose that from Paramount’s view – after all, Paramount had to green-light the storyline – it was smart to pick a villain out of the Star Trek archives who would be familiar to both the “Trekker” and a wider audience; but all in all, I think that this particular villain was just too easy to choose.
Yep, that’s right. The rumors were true. »

Abrams offered the scene in response to claims that the movie is aimed more toward male viewers, the prime example being when Carol (Alice Eve) suddenly (and some might argue 'gratuitously') strips down to her bra and pants. He also pointed towards an earlier scene where Kirk appears with his own top off in bed.
Probably time for a cold shower now...
Star Trek Into Darkness stars Chris Pine (Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Karl Urban (Bones), Simon Pegg (Scotty), John Cho (Sulu), Anton Yelchin (Checkov), Alice Eve (Carol Marcus), Peter Weller (Admiral Marcus) and Benedict Cumberbatch (John Harrison).

Universal's sixth Fast & Furious film earned $38.2 million on Friday, and heads to around $110-$120 million over the weekend, easily doing way with Warner Bros. Pictures' third part in the Hangover franchise which made $14.5 million. The film will be the franchise's top opener to date, when comparing Fast Five's $86.1 million debut back on April 29th, 2011. In foreign territories, the Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson over-the-top actioner topped all of its markets, pulling in $36 million. In the meantime, Hangover 3 which debuted early to try get a jump on the weekend, will end off with around $60 million from five days. This is higher than the first Hangover's $44.9 million weekend pull on June 5th, 2009, but way lower than The Hangover Part II's $85.8 opening, with less days to do business in. Paramount's Star Trek Into Darkness began its sophomore weekend run with $10.2 million, bringing the J.J. Abrams film's domestic cume to just under $120 million. »
Singapore — Portraying USS Enterprise helmsman Hikaru Sulu in the latest "Star Trek" movie comes with big shoes to fill, but the man who played the part in the TV series and six films has given his blessing to the actor currently playing the role.
Even though George Takei – whose portrayal of Sulu made him a science fiction legend – said he had not yet had time to catch recently released "Star Trek Into Darkness" due to his busy schedule, he feels John Cho is the "ideal choice" to carry on Sulu's legacy due to the actor's "charm, intelligence, dash and sharpness."
"When (director) J.J. Abrams first announced he had cast Hikaru Sulu, I got a call from John (Cho) asking to have lunch with me," Takei said Friday in Singapore, where he attended the inaugural Social Star Awards. "He was very curious about the intensity of `Star Trek' fans and doing comic conventions, »
Alice Eve may play a scientist in Star Trek Into Darkness, but she's a big believer that we're not alone in the universe. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live recently to promote the sci-fi sequel, the British actress recalled for the funnyman the experience she, fellow cast members Chris Pine and John Cho and Star Trek director J.J. Abrams had when they participated in a Skype chat with astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Little did Eve realize the "cool" conversation would lead to some startling revelations about the possibility of humanity having had a close encounter! "J.J….said he sat next to an astronaut once who had told him that he had seen 'forms or shapes' »
Alice Eve knows aliens, or at least she does in her movies. The British actress has dealt with the topic of extra-terrestrial life quite a bit, as she's appeared in both "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Men In Black 3," which is fitting since she believes we're not alone.
During a recent appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the 31-year-old spoke of a Skype chat she took part in alongside "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams and co-stars Chris Pine and John Cho, as well as the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. The actress told Kimmel it was a fascinating experience, but she isn't convinced that Nasa has been honest with the public about the existence of alien life.
"That was definitely the coolest thing we've done. I mean, we've shared the movie with countries around the world, but we got to Skype ... with the guy in a space station. And »

Star Trek: Into Darkness didn't warp past its predecessor.
The sci-fi sequel directed by J.J. Abrams earned $70.1 million in its opening weekend. The original Trek reboot starring fresh faces Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana as part of the crew of the Enterprise opened with $75.2 million in 2009.
Abrams' sequel amped up the action with 3D and cast popular British import Benedict Cumberbatch as the villain John Harrison, whom Captain Kirk is dedicated to taking down.
Overall, critics were pleased with the sequel, which brought back its supporting cast including John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg and Karl Urban, earning it an 86 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes,very strong but a little less impressive than the 95 per cent score earned by the 2009 sci-fi flick.

So now that we finally have our 12th Trek into the Stars on the big-screen, which opened to rave reviews and generous first weekend box-office returns, the sequel to critical and commercial success ‘Star Trek’ (2009) also helmed by J.J Abrams. That previous installment of the nearly 50-year-old franchise brought new-blood in both in front of and behind the camera, reinvigorating and one could say reenergizing the then stagnant Sci-Fi staple.
That movie, despite some narrative misgivings I had about it, accomplished exactly what it needed rebooting Star Trek. Giving fans and casual viewers memorable characters, shiny tech and nods to the past series as a whole. Which brings us to ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’, which finds the emotional Star Fleet Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) journeying into the deepest voids of space to seek retribution after a horrific terrorist attack perpetrated by a rogue Starfleet Agent.

Nasa is routinely thought of as the our precursor to the fictional Starfleet Academy, and recently, astronauts interacted with “Star Trek Into Darkness” stars to discuss the intersection between “Star Trek” and Nasa’s current programs. Astronaut Chris Cassidy on the International Space Station and astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren connected with writer/producer Damon Lindelof and stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho through Google+ to talk about how “Star Trek” and Nasa are connected along with what happens in zero gravity, if any of the actors would want to go into space, which captain is Eve’s favorite and more.
