Justin Lin to direct Star Trek 3; here are 4 people who should direct Star Trek 4

23 December 2014 1:31 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[N.B. This article started out as being about Star Trek 3, but then Justin Lin was announced as director before the article was published. Having directed four Fast and Furious films, including the terrific Fast Five, Justin Lin is a brilliant action director, who's bound to deliver on a blockbuster level, although the same could be said of basically any action movie he might work on.

The article follows, slightly reworked for Star Trek 4, seeing as Star Trek is a franchise with lots of potential to explore further, and Justin Lin is a highly sought-after director, who will probably go on to The Bourne Legacy 2 and then perhaps Fast and Furious sequels after finishing Star Trek 3. So this is probably the first article about who should direct Star Trek 4...]

Recently, Roberto Orci stepped down from directing Star Trek 3 (2016), which would have been his directorial debut. He's worked on the screenplays for all three rebooted Star Trek movies, and remains involved in Star Trek 3 as a producer.

The obvious question remained: who would direct Star Trek 3?

With Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) director J.J. Abrams busy directing the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII (2015), Justin Lin is stepping in to direct Star Trek 3, now set for July 8, 2016.

J.K. Rowling "Unnerved" by Girls Who Fell for Draco Malfoy

23 December 2014 8:12 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

J.K. Rowling never intended for Harry Potter readers to fall for bad boy Draco Malfoy. In fact, she revealed in a new 12 Days of Christmas story posted to Pottermore Tuesday that she found herself "unnerved" by the "number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character." She wrote that she does "not discount the appeal of Tom Felton, who plays Draco brilliantly in the films and, ironically, is about the nicest person you will ever meet." However, "Draco has all the dark glamour of the anti-hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people," wrote Rowling. "All of this left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers' »

J.K. Rowling's New Story Explains Her "Pity" For Draco Malfoy

22 December 2014 3:10 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

J.K. Rowling is continuing with her 12 Days of Harry Potter, this time posting a short story about Draco Malfoy. As she did with her first piece of writing 10 days ago, Rowling teased this one via Pottermore's Twitter handle. This time, she tells of how Draco's last name could have been "Smart, Spinks or Spungen," but she settled on Malfoy because his Christian name comes from a constellation: the dragon. Rowling also spills some interesting details on her on personal feelings about the character and his legion of fangirls. Take a look at the most interesting tidbits below! On Why Draco Is So Mean to Harry Potter "Like every other child of Harry Potter's age, Draco heard stories of the Boy Who Lived through his youth. Draco's feelings for Harry were always based, on a great part, on envy. Though he never sought fame, Harry was unquestionably the most talked-about and admired person at school, »

Original Ending Revealed for Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes - Concept Art

14 November 2014 10:26 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Rupert Wyatt's Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a great film, and it payed homage to several aspects of the original film that it was inspired by. One of them included Dodge Landon (Tom Felton) yelling "Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!" He also says, "It's a madhouse! A madhouse!" Thanks to Film Sketchr we have some concept art and information regarding an alternate ending to the film that would have offered another big nod to the original film.

The ending we saw to Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes saw Will Rodman's (James Franco) emotional release of Caesar into the forest. It was followed by a precursor of where the story would go when Caesar and his pack looked out over the city of San Francisco. Then during the film's credits scene, we see Rodman's neighbor/airline pilot become the second »
