Star Trek Into Darkness weekend box office: Downright disappointing domestic debut (photo: Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness) J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, featuring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan, took in an estimated $22 million at 3,668 North American venues on Friday, according to studio figures found at Box Office Mojo. Is that good or bad? Well, let’s just say that this weekend Star Trek Into Darkness should end up collecting approximately $20-28 million less at the domestic box office than early estimates indicated. (Check out comparisons between the Thursday opening of Star Trek Into Darkness and the more impressive debuts of other movie sequels.) Star Trek Into Darkness vs. Star Trek: Opening-weekend box office Star Trek Into Darkness will likely gross at most $83-85 million by Sunday evening, and $70-72 million over the three-day weekend.

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 »
Spoiler warning: Now that Star Trek Into Darkness has arrived in theaters, it’s fair game for the discussion of spoilers. I plan on revealing several key secrets that take place during Into Darkness, so if you don’t want to be spoiled in advance, look away.
There, that’s settled.
Much was made by the filmmakers responsible for 2009’s Star Trek movie, especially its director J.J. Abrams. He made it no secret that he wasn’t a fan of the Trek franchise, and that one of his intents was to make a movie that opened up the door for a wider audience. That was ultimately the primary purpose of J.J.’s Star Trek, and I’m certain that it was the main goal of his follow-up film, Star Trek Into Darkness.
Then why must he and his writers pander to classic Star Trek mythology, to the detriment of their original work, »

The networks unveiled their new shows at this week's upfronts, and we got a peek at new Fall schedules for Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS, and The CW. There's now lots of info for each of the upcoming series, so get to know them all by watching trailers for all the new shows. After nine seasons, The Office came to an end with a sweet episode that includes Dwight and Angela's wedding. To celebrate the milestone, we recounted the best episodes of all time and took a look back at Jim's floppy hair evolution. More season finale madness: Nick and Jess got together on New Girl, things got totally bonkers on the Vampire Diaries finale, and someone died on Grey's Anatomy. How I Met Your Mother finally revealed the mother, but there's a catch: Ted won't meet her for quite some time. Meet your kickass ladies of Summer blockbuster season! Need »

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, »

One of "Star Trek's" greatest legacies has been its positive portrayal of women.These roles aren't your typical damsels in distress or alien temptresses, they're Starfleet officers, dastardly villains and plucky heroines.And while there aren't many female roles in "Star Trek Into Darkness" -- the women who grace the screen are strong. Zoe Saldana reprises her role as communications officer Nyota Uhura, Alice Eve (above) joins the crew as Dr. Carol Marcus, and Nazneen Contractor plays Rima Hardwood, a mother whose decision sets up the entire film.Some big-name actresses have starred in "Star Trek" films -- including Kirstie Alley and Kim Cattrall. Click on the "Launch Gallery" link below to see what they look like now -- all are still beautiful, and some even age-defying (we're talking about you, Iman).Who is your favorite "Star Trek" actress?

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: 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 »

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.

Having arrived in UK theatres last weekend, J.J. Abrams’ anticipated blockbuster sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, has now officially been released into the Us multiplex, and is reportedly on track for a nine-figure four-day opening across the Atlantic.
The early reviews and the reception from our audiences have been very positive – you can read our review here – and we’re looking forward to seeing how it fares at the box office in the States this weekend.
Adding to all the brilliant things we’ve seen from the film already, Paramount have released a new music featurette in which composer Michael Giacchino talks a little about scoring Abrams’ blockbuster.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

Michael Kaplan’s career is one film after another of “wow, he did that?” cinema: Blade Runner, Flashdance, Seven, Fight Club, Burlesque, plus dozens more. Kaplan’s connection to Star Trek began as costume designer on J.J. Abrams’ reboot in 2009, and now he is back for the sequel. Despite admitting he was no expert in the world of Star Trek before signing on, his work on both movies has been praised; particularly the Enterprise crew uniforms (that reoccurring Starfleet pattern is a classy touch).

Before this review can begin, it is very important to remember that five minutes into J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek film, the entire Trek timeline, going back to the very second that James Tiberius Kirk is born, was forever altered. So, there was no five year mission. No Khan. No Next Generation, Deep Space 9, or even a Borg assimilation of Jean-Luc Picard. And Cameron never got his own ship. The writers, Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, wisely gave themselves a clean slate to work with and then proceeded to re-build a universe that was just as compelling, if not more action-packed than before. And it worked very well.
Now, four years later, J.J. Abrams, along with Orci and Kurtzman and now Damon Lindelof, have returned to the Star Trek universe with Star Trek Into Darkness. Many wondered what these creative folks would do with the clean slate. Would they »
Warning: This review contains mild spoilers.For a movie called "Star Trek Into Darkness," it's surprisingly full of light and humorous moments.In fact, jokes come second only to action in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" sequel, which opens in theaters Friday."Trek" is a wild ride -- a roller coaster of action that stops momentarily to clarify a plot point or deliver a bit of witty banter before barreling off again.It's a formula that after awhile feels uninspired: talk, joke, fight, talk, joke, fight, talk, joke, fight. But "Trek's" action scenes are thrilling enough they carry the entire film, though it definitely comes across as more style over substance.The plot revolves around John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), a Starfleet agent gone rogue. It's up to Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and his crew to track down Harrison and bring him to justice.With his piercing stare and deep voice, »

2009's "Star Trek" reboot rejuvenated the franchise beyond anyone's expectations. It was fast, funny, and sexy, and director J.J. Abrams took his sweet time developing a sequel (keeping it shrouded in mystery, of course). Now that sequel is (Finally) here, with "Star Trek Into Darkness," which pits the crew of the USS Enterprise against a terrorist villain known as John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch). In all likelihood, this will be Abrams's last go 'round in the captain's chair, as he starts work on the seventh "Star Wars" movie for Disney and Lucasfilm some time this year, for release in 2015. The question then is: Does he go out on a high note, or will he leave you begging for another director to helm the Enterprise? Well, here are 10 things you should keep in mind as you travel "Into Darkness." 1. It's Not That Dark The trailers and title for "Star Trek Into Darkness »

Review by Dana Jung
In 2009, producer/director J.J. Abrams took the nearly impossible task of relaunching a beloved and storied franchise. That film of course was Star Trek, and though Abrams created an “alternate history” version of that world that both reimagined and refreshed the series, he was wise enough to recognize that the character interplay of his three leads was the most important key to the original series’ charm.
As entertaining and action-packed as it was, that first film by Abrams now seems almost a complete setup for this sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. Here Abrams and his writers, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof, continue deconstructing the Trek mythology, and again have succeeded in creating a vastly entertaining movie, one of the best in the entire series, and one of the best films of the year so far. As the title suggests, however, this Trek has a »

And, surprisingly enough, there's actually quite a bit of information floating around out there about the presumed third installment in the hit sci-fi franchise relaunch. With that in mind, we've compiled all the rumors, revealing interviews and Major Spoilers into one handy guide.
So check it out. Because if there's one thing "Star Trek" has taught us, it's that tomorrow is going to be even better than today.
The Whole Crew Will Be Back
As the chatter surrounding whether or not Robert Downey, Jr. will be back for "Iron Man 4" has shown us, you just can't take anything for granted in the world of movies. If they can potentially replace the most popular and successful box office star of the past five years, »
