Fox's 2013/2014 lineup (and NBC's as well) probably presents us with the most to look forward to, with regards to new series with black actors in starring roles. First, Almost Human, the futuristic thriller from Fringe executive producer, writer, director and showrunner, J.H. Wyman, as well as creator J.J. Abrams. Michael Ealy co-stars alongside Karl Urban in a series described as an action-packed buddy cop show set in the near future, where all Lapd officers are partnered with highly evolved humanlike androids.

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.

The blockbuster season has started. It might not be summer quite yet, but already we have seen some of this year’s biggest movies released into theatres. Iron Man Three, Oblivion, and Fast and Furious 6 have all entertained and frustrated audiences in equal measure.
The biggest success so far, critically at least, is Star Trek Into Darkness. Of the blockbuster movies released so far this year, it has received the highest Rotten Tomatoes score. But is this a fair reflection on the movie itself?
In 2009, Jj Abrams’ rebooted Star Trek pleased fans and newcomers alike, with a mix of entertaining characters, comedy one-liners and action. A whole new generation fell in love with the crew of the USS Enterprise, and as a result, there was a lot of expectation for this year’s sequel. The critical success of Star Trek Into Darkness seems, to me at least, to be due »

Drama is taking centerstage at this year’s L.A. Screenings.
Most of the big TV stories of the past season were about dramas old and new breaking out (to various degrees) — whether the CW’s “Arrow,” NBC’s “Revolution,” PBS’ “Downton Abbey,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead” or History miniseries “The Bible.” Networks both here and abroad are looking for ways to duplicate that success for themselves.
“The shows that work best internationally are episodic procedurals with interesting lead characters,” says Jeffrey Schlesinger, who last week was promoted to prexy of Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution.
That said, with more channels to fill, international buyers are just as interested in all different sorts of shows — from broad comedy to intense action — as domestic buyers. But the drama market looks particularly fertile.
Genre dramas remain popular this season, with networks picking up several series with sci-fi or fantastical premises.

Warning: Crazy Spoilers Herein.
It's become a bit of a tradition in Hollywood for the creators of pop culture-friendly franchises to hide a few Easter eggs in the film for hardcore fans to find and get giggly over. "Iron Man 3" did it just this month while Marvel's other giant blockbuster, "The Avengers," perfected the art last year.
But while those movies were at least sometimes subtle about their references and in-jokes, "Star Trek Into Darkness" has taken a somewhat different approach: smacking you right in the face with them at every single opportunity.
Of course, that's bound to happen when your whole film is taken part and parcel from the most beloved "Star Trek" installment of all time, "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." But since not everyone going to see "Star Trek Into Darkness" has a Ph.D. in Trekkery ("Wrath of Khan" did come out over 30 years ago, »

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.
