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.

Star Trek Into Darkness is off and running in theaters right now and up to $164.6 million worldwide. Last week, as the North American publicity tour wound down co-stars Simon Pegg, John Cho and Alice Eve ventured into Seattle where I had a chance to sit down with Scotty, Sulu and Carol Marcus to discuss the film, their aspiration, their reactions upon learning their director was also going to direct Star Wars: Episode VII and also ask where do all the dogs go in the future? The mood was light and festive as you'll quickly see... Do you have to get into shape for Star Trek? Are the suits form-fitting? Simon Pegg (Sp): Nah, I like to live my life like an international rock star. No, um, I was in quite good shape already because I came off shooting Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. These guys are always in great shape, »

New Star Trek 2,Into Darkness movie delivered great action,drama,twists & more. Paramount Pictures released their new sci-fi/action flick, "Star Trek 2: Into Darkness" into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was absolutely magnificent as it delivered big on the action,and the plotline was golden with tons of major twists towards the end. The drama was really intense too as Spock and Kirk really connected for some teary-eyed moments. I mean, I didn't cry,but I certainly would never rag on anyone who did. The movie stars: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, and Peter Weller. In the new flick, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) loses command of the Enterprise after he violates the Prime Directive in an effort to save his first Officer,Spock,from getting destroyed by »
With J.J. Abrams Star Trek Into Darkness now playing around the world, we recently landed an exclusive phone interview with John Cho. During the interview, he talked about making the sequel, how things changed on set, who was the one who broke the most while filming, his preparation process, did he take anything home from set, deleted scenes, and a lot more. He also talked about the status of Harold and Kumar, Get a Job, working with Matthew Perry on Go On, Bryan Cranston, and working on the pilot for Sleepy Hollow. Hit the jump for what he had to say. John Cho: What's up, brother? Collider: Nada, what's going on with you? Cho: Not much, we're in San Francisco at the moment. Oh, good times. I saw Mr. Pegg last night, he was here in L.A. Cho: Oh, you did? Okay cool. And now I'm with him, »

Star Trek Into Darkness box office: Solid or disappointing domestic debut? (Photo: Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock in Star Trek Into Darkness) J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, starring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock, has to date grossed $13.4 million in North America, including from 336 late-night Wednesday IMAX shows and all-day showtimes at 3,668 locations on Thursday. As explained by Ray Subers at Box Office Mojo, first-day figures may have been below par because Paramount Pictures changed Star Trek Into Darkness‘ release date last week — the Star Trek sequel was to have opened on Friday. (Addendum: Barring an unexpected Saturday and Sunday surge, “disappointing” is the word for Star Trek Into Darkness’ domestic box-office debut.) For comparison’s sake: With $11.53m on Thursday proper, Star Trek Into Darkness had the 11th biggest Thursday opening ever (not adjusted for inflation). Its Thursday debut, »

This summer director J.J. Abrams takes Star Trek Into Darkness as the young officers of The U.S.S. Enterprise set course for their most epic journey yet. Abrams reunites with the team that created the fun, the humor, and the spirit of 2009’s acclaimed hit reboot of the beloved franchise.
On this second voyage, they’ve amped the action, raised the emotional stakes and launched the Enterprise into a high-wire, life-or-death game of chess with an unstoppable force of destruction.
With everything the men and women of The Enterprise believe on the line, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn and sacrifices must be made for the only family Captain Kirk has left: the crew he commands.

Star Trek films have been hit-and-miss over the years. Even with the original cast, led by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, the Trek franchise had a lot of peaks and valleys. This one is a peak, and it corrects most of the flaws from the previous film. The 2009 film was a good action film, but not a good Star Trek film. This film is both. It appeases both people who are looking for slam-bang action, and those of us who loved the deeper nuance of classic Trek.
The story begins with a still-raw Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) commanding the USS Enterprise with his typical reckless, rebellious style. His well-meaning technique of ignore-the-rules-and-follow-your-gut gets him in hot water with Star Fleet command, »

Star Trek: Into Darkness might just be the perfect summer blockbuster. (Yes, I know it's still spring, but my thesis stands.) It's big, it's loud, it's well crafted, it's immensely entertaining and quite clever (or, more important, feels clever in the moment). What else could you want from a major Hollywood popcorn flick?
Better yet, it's also a great Star Trek movie. Director J. J. Abrams, with the help of his writers, the Nerd Herd (genre specialists Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof), has crafted a worthy sequel to his 2009 reboot of the franchise. To me, as an origin story that flick felt a little too orchestrated. But Into Darkness kicks off »
We haven't hit Memorial Day Weekend yet, but it's official: Summer Blockbuster Season is underway. Between comic books, Michael Bay's latest flick, a Tom Cruise vehicle, and summer dalliances in the Hamptons, the second installment of the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise almost seems superfluous. Almost. Still, there's plenty of other delightful fare at the cinemas: another "Taken" imitation, a New-York-set coming-of-late-20s-ager, a B-horror movie set in Maine, a Korean thriller that may or may not feature Oedipal urges, and plenty of engaging documentaries. So enjoy the early onset of summer, faithful readers! And tell us what you want to see to celebrate it in the comments below! "Star Trek Into Darkness" opened Thursday. Directed by J.J. Abrams. Starring Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho, and Anton Yelchin. Our review: "For the first hour or so, it's just as enjoyable as the original, »

Adaobi Ifeachor: 'Star Trek lets you release your inner nerd'
I have tried with Star Wars. After all, there are some enjoyable moments in the franchise: when the identity of Luke's father is revealed and finally seeing Yoda kick arse. But, for the most part, all I felt was an overwhelming sense of boredom. I rented the original trilogy as an adult. I sat through the prequels at the cinema. But, maybe you can never really connect with Star Wars unless you first watch the films as a wide-eyed child?
For me, it's the old science fiction versus science fantasy debate. Star Trek shows you how things work. It takes some pains to create believable rules around its technology and the universe the characters inhabit. Star Wars doesn't seem to bother. »

I loved the first .Star Trek. from director J.J. Abrams. And now, the director and his cast are back for .Star Trek Into Darkness.. Like its title, the sequel is darker and yes, bigger. But is it better?
Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), John Cho (Sulu), Simon Pegg (Scotty), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Karl Urban (Bones McCoy), and Anton Yelchin (Checkov) return for the sequel. Joining them are Alice Eve as the mysterious Dr. Carol Marcus and Benedict Cumberbatch as the villain Commander John Harrison.
Is .Star Trek Into Darkness. worth the wait? Watch my review:
Directed by: J.J. Abrams
Running Time: 2 hrs 12 mins
Release Date: May 16, 2013
Plot: After the Federation is attacked by one man (Cumberbatch), the crew of the Enterprise set out on a manhunt, which could lead to all out war.
Who’S It For? I think action fans will be happier than science fiction or Star Trek fans. It’s a big, fun ride.
Expectations: I loved Star Trek (2009), and all I kept doing was trying to avoid news of this film. That was very difficult since Abrams wanted secrecy, and that meant movie nerds were all the more determined to spread any news via Twitter that they could find. Luckily, I was able to go in fresh.
