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, »

There is a moment in Star Trek: The Video Game when a firefight with the Gorn leads to a door, and behind that door stands one of the game's Vulcan Npc characters calmly waiting for your arrival as if it was an airport terminal on a weekday afternoon. Never mind the fact that every area around this room is crawling with cannon toting Gorn.
This lack of logic is a microcosm for the bafflingly poorly executed game as a whole, ironic since one of its two playable character's belief systems is structured around the examination and acceptance of logic. If Spock sat down to play Star Trek: The Video Game, he'd quickly flip open his communicator and make the request, "Beam me out of here, Scotty."
Iron Man 3 just broke the part-three movie curse. Conversely, Star Trek Into Darkness breaks the second is better than the first installment streak. Before heading off to another galaxy far far away director J.J. Abrams delivers a summer popcorn flick that thrills as much as tickles the funny bones. If the results never quite reach the slam-dunk highs of the 2009 reboot, that's somewhat to be expected. After all those mysterious trailers and TV spots there was bound to be some J.J. fatigue. Six months after the events of the last film, Kirk (Chris Pine) and the crew of the Enterprise are off to capture and assassinate a man who's responsible for blowing up a building and open firing on the heads of Starfleet. As usual, »
Los Angees, May 18: Actress Zoe Saldana says the number of her male friends exceeds that of her female pals.
No wonder the 34-year-old loved being a part of the almost completely male cast of "Star Trek Into Darkness".
"It's a very accurate reflection of how I am in my own life. I have more male than female friends," contactmusic.com quoted Saldana as saying.
"We stay in touch through chain emails, we all joke and congratulate each other on personal and. »

Emily Blunt (Looper) has been cast in Disney's big screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Into the Woods. It was recently announced that Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine are in discussions to join the film which also stars Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep.
The movie will be directed Rob Marshall, and the story follows "a childless baker and his wife who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter Rapunzel, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk’s Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, and other classic fairy tale characters."
Blunt is set to play the baker’s wife in the story, which it the female lead. Streep is playing the vain and charismatic Witch, while Depp is going to play "a hungry and sexy variation of a fairy tale wolf." If Gyllenhaal and »

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, »

Wow, "Into the Woods" is becoming a star-studded affair! We all know Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp are joining the big screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical from director Rob Marshall ("Chicago"). And then we heard that Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal were in serious talks to join the cast as a pair of self-obsessed princes.
Now, we're hearing from Variety that Emily Blunt is also in serious talks to star as the Baker's wife. It's a lead role as the play focuses on the Baker and his wife as they go into the woods in search of the witch (Streep, I'm sure, will be fantastic!).
James Lapine wrote the script based on his book from the musical. No production date set yet, but my oh my, with a cast like this, I can't wait! »

What is Casting Couch? It’s tying a nice bow on this work week with casting news concerning lovely ladies like Michelle Yeoh, Olga Kurylenko, and Chloe Moretz. Oh yeah, and there’s some stuff about some dudes in there too. The upcoming adaptation of the Steven Sondheim musical Into the Woods that Rob Marshall has been putting together for Disney hasn’t been too secretive about its casting process. James Corden is rumored to be on board as the film’s lead, the Baker, we know for sure that mega-stars Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep are signed for sizzle roles as the wolf and the witch, and we even recently learned that Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal are close to landing the roles of a couple of bumbling princes. But the one key ingredient that’s always been missing is who’s going to play the female lead, the Baker’s wife. Until »

Chicago – The anticipation of experiencing the rebooted crew of the starship Enterprise now may overwhelm any creative team’s ability to deliver to that anticipation. “Star Trek Into Darkness” piles on the space war excess, while lessening the savory humanity and memorable characters.
After successfully relaunching and rebooting the characters and universe of Star Trek in 2009, the team of screenwriters Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, Damon Lindelof and director J.J. Abrams have serious “Iron Man 2” syndrome in the follow-up – the tendency to emphasize the larger-than-life gadgets and effects over the smaller-than-life interactions of the humans operating the machines. What makes it a bit frustrating is that they nailed the first one so well, that evolving to the second adventure was an anticipatory slam dunk. There are many fine moments involving the Enterprise crew, but those tasty bits are covered with the fake butter of a franchise summer movie. It »

I was never the Star Trek fan in my family. No, that distinction goes to my Mom. The TV show, the original 6 movies, marathon after marathon on any random cable channel, she was all about it. And despite her best efforts, I just couldn’t get into it. But let it be known I have seen a good portion of the TV show along with all of the movies. Then in 2009, J. J. Abrams comes along with his reboot of a franchise that at that point, had become more of a mocked gesture than a sincere one. And despite my initial reluctance, I went and saw the J.J. Abrams version of Star Trek…and enjoyed the hell out of it. Sure it was more action driven, many would say Star Wars-esque, but »

"The Weekend Rent offers quick-hit suggestions of what to watch at home to get psyched for new releases in theaters, on Friday." There is only one new wide release in theaters this week, Star Trek Into Darkness, because the other studios want to steer clear of the hotly anticipated Paramount sequel that is looking at an opening weekend of around $100 million. We've posted countdowns for it and endless geek speculation for, oh, over a year now on this site, but that's because director J.J. Abrams is so protective of plot details and, well, we're talking about Star Trek. In the second Star Trek adventure directed by Abrams, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise chase former Starfleet agent John Harrison...

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, »
