'Star Trek Into Darkness' teaser: The Wrath of John

17 December 2012 9:10 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

The first trailer for next year’s decolonized preboot-sequel Star Trek Into Darkness focused mainly on Benedict Cumberbatch, who is playing John Harrison or Khan or Gary Mitchell or Charlie Evans or Sherlock Holmes or whatever. A new teaser, however, puts the focus on Captain Kirk. In voiceover narration, Captain Pike chastises Kirk: “There’s greatness in you, but there’s not an ounce of humility…you’re gonna get yourself and everyone under your command killed.” Various shots of the Enterprise crew follow, along with one shot that looks like a direct reference to an extremely memorable scene from »

'Star Trek Into Darkness': Alice Eve's role revealed

10 December 2012 10:41 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Some of the tightly kept secrets of sci-fi sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness" -- including the name of the character played by Alice Eve -- are starting to leak out as the film ramps up its publicity in advance of next year's May 17 release date.

First, we discovered that Benedict Cumberbatch's mysterious villain is apparently named "John Harrison" -- a name that means nothing to the "Trek" faithful.

Now, Coming Soon is reporting that Eve's character is called Carol Marcus, and that's a name that means a lot. In "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," Marcus was a scientist and one of Captain Kirk's lovers. Not only that, but she gave birth to his son, David. Actress Bibi Besch played the role in "Khan."

As those who saw director J.J. Abrams' 2009 reboot "Star Trek" know, the new series of films is unfolding in an alternate timeline from the original series. »

News On A Key "Star Trek" Sequel Character

10 December 2012 8:16 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

So who in the hell is Benedict Cumberbatch's villain in "Star Trek Into Darkness" anyway?

All signs continue pointing to Khan and/or Gary Mitchell as it has been revealed that Alice Eve's role in the film will be that of Carol Marcus.

Bibi Besch played the role in "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," a Federation scientist who had previously had a relationship with James T. Kirk and became mother to his son, David.

A recent preview of nine minutes of footage from the movie for select press included many of the scenes from the recent 'Announcement Trailer' including the scenes within a volcano, and the Enterprise hiding out at the bottom of an ocean on a planet covered in red flora.

The caption of recently released photo, seen below, says Cumberbatch's character is named "John Harrison" but why do I doubt it? Also interesting is »

‘Star Trek 2′ Image Clarifies Japanese Trailer Footage? Villain Alias Revealed

10 December 2012 2:42 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

One day after our own Vic Holtreman had a chance to check out the nine minute Star Trek Into Darkness prologue (read his preview), Paramount Pictures has released the first official image from the highly anticipated sequel. While the image isn’t quite as revealing as the gallery of HD trailer screen grabs we collected from the Star Trek 2 trailer, it does add a new bit of speculation for footage associated with the Japanese trailer debut – specifically a shot that was reminiscent of the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan finale.

Of course, for every mystery that we might solve, a new one usually arises and the new image is no exception – begging the question: who is John Harrison really?

Star Trek: Cumberbatch is truly tantalising

7 December 2012 4:11 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With the debut trailer out, big questions remain about the bad guy Cumberbatch is playing in his first big Hollywood role

Reading this on mobile? Click here to view video

Jj Abrams' Star Trek was something of a surprise treat three years ago, impressively reinvigorating a tired franchise that seemed to have nowhere to go, boldly or otherwise. It may have rubbed purists' noses up the wrong way with its space opera leanings and focus on intense action, yet it delivered a full-blooded vision of extra-planetary conflict like nothing seen before on the big screen while dropping a respectful nod in the direction of its predecessors.

Sequel Star Trek Into Darkness is out in May and the four-year gap alone would have been enough to suggest optimism, Abrams having pointedly refused to sign on until a decent script was in place. The recruitment of Benedict Cumberbatch to play the »

Wonder Woman and Superboy captured on DVD

6 December 2012 10:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Warner Archive Collection is hoping to lasso Christmas shoppers on December 11th, 2012 by releasing a pair of fanboy-centric DC Comic properties on DVD.

Though many associate Lynda Carter as the small screen incarnation of Wonder Woman, a tennis pro pursuing her acting ambitions starred in the original 1974 television pilot; Cathy Lee Crosby portrayed the Amazon Princess as superspy rather than superhero who seeks to thwart Richardo Montalban (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) from stealing ultra-secret code books resulting in her discovering an Amazon sister-in-exile played by Anitra Ford.

Superboy: The Complete Second Season (1989 to 1990) features the adventures of Gerard Christopher as the younger Kal-El who has to battle villains Metallo, Bizarro, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Yellow Peri and Lex Luther who marries the Kryptonian's high school sweetheart Lana Lang.  The cast of guest stars includes 007 veterans George Lazenby (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) and Britt Ekland (The Man With the Golden Gun »

'Star Trek' Trailer Has 'Wrath of Khan' Homage/Possible Spoiler (Video)

6 December 2012 8:52 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Japanese version of the new "Star Trek Into Darkness" trailer has a few seconds not seen in the American version that may suggest tragedy awaits the U.S.S. Enterprise. 1982's "Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan" famously ended with Spock sacrificing his life to save the starship. He goes to its engine room and fix its damaged warp drive, exposing himself to deadly radiation in the process. As he dies, he makes the Vulcan symbol and presses it to the clear wall. Kirk reaches for his hand, but they are separated »

Movie Hero Rap Sheet: Captain Kirk

6 December 2012 8:34 AM, PST | | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer hit the interwebz today and it looks like Captain James T. Kirk will have a "personal score to settle," with a "one-man weapon of mass destruction" (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) which may not be hard to believe when one looks over Kirk's history in Starfleet, particularly when you consider the lengthier history of the Captain Kirk from an alternate timeline (William Shatner). Starfleet has a list of malfeasance by their most roguish member as long as a Bajoran wormhole and he is wanted in the better part of three quadrants for various crimes. Following is a list of Kirk's crimes, if you encounter said individual, you would be better off hitting warp 9 in the opposite direction.

'Star Trek Into Darkness' extended trailer hints at Khan homage?

6 December 2012 3:46 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Trek Into Darkness has released an extended trailer that appears to contain a homage to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. From 0:56 onwards, the Japanese trailer contains footage not included in the Us and UK versions, in which Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) appear to re-enact a scene from Nicholas Meyer's beloved 1982 film. "Is there anything you would not do for your family?" Cumberbatch's villain asks in voiceover, as Kirk and Spock's hands touch through a pane of glass, recalling the pair's iconic farewell scene from The Wrath of Khan. Ever since Cumberbatch was announced as the film's villain, speculation has been rife regarding the identity of his character, with many fans suggesting (more) »

Updated: Teaser Preview Trailer: Star Trek Into Darkness

6 December 2012 12:26 AM, PST | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

Paramount has released  what they're calling a "preview" of a teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness. Running at one minute and three seconds long, the video gives us our first meaty look at the second movie in the Star Trek rebot universe. The same fresh faced cast from 2009's Star Trek film is back for the sequel along with Benedict Cumberbatch who's playing the mysterious bad guy out to put sad faces on those smiling Federation citizens.

The voiceover that you'll hear in a moment is Cumberbatch's character, making some threatening remarks and promising that he's about to start dishing out his "vengeance". Is that a clue as to the identity of the baddie?


Up to last week I was making a guess that Cumberbatch is playing an old original Trek series character named Gary Mitchell, a Starfleet Academy friend of Kirk's that he was forced to kill when »

“Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

A proverb whose origins date from a French-English translation from the the early 19th Century, which has appeared in all forms of popular culture, such as Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan or more recently, CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory.  However, it is its brief appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s fifth feature film that sets the tone for his endeavour to blend Eastern and Western cinematic cultures.

Star Wars Episode 7 – 7 Composers Who Could Replace John Williams

16 November 2012 2:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The main theme of Star Wars, as composed by the great John Williams, is one of the most iconic and instantly recognizable pieces of music – film or not – of the last 100 years. This is a fact. It’s also a testament to how great a composer Williams is, and further proof that film scores are the modern equivalent of the classical music from the 1600-1800′s. Film scores can carry all the same emotion, range and complexity that Mozart, Bach, Beethoven and other composers used in their symphonies that we still listen to today. It’s my opinion that in 100 years, the film composers of the 1900-2000′s – led by John Williams – will be remembered alongside those greats as the modern torch-bearers of the grand orchestral music tradition. Which leads me to the topic at hand.

15 Blunders That Ruined J.J Abrams’ Star Trek And Destroyed The Franchise

19 September 2012 1:34 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Star Trek turned 46 this month and the legacy of the show has grown to include 11 movies and a further 4 television series’. After the Original Series got canceled in 1969 after only three seasons, the show became extremely popular in syndication. In 1979 Star Trek The Motion Picture was released to capitalize on the success of Star Wars. Even though the film was a financial success, it failed to impress critics but the subsequent sequel by Nicholas Meyer with Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan showed audiences that Star Trek could be a success in the cinema as well as on TV.

The show’s popularity peaked with Star Trek The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager with all shows lasting seven seasons. The follow-up prequel series Enterprise was deemed a failure and the show got canceled after only four seasons, sadly just as the show’s quality was starting to pick up. »

Star Trek: The Wrath of Colon?

16 September 2012 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So, after months of speculation and waiting with baited breath, the next Star Trek title has been announced.

Star Trek Into Darkness

It’s certainly different. And not what we were expecting. But is it any good? Well, it kinda works and it kinda doesn’t. Trek Into Darkness sounds fair enough, sound like a gritty indie horror or a survival movie. But Star Trek Into Darkness? We’re not so sure.

Surprisingly, the biggest complaints amongst some quarters of the fanbase seem to be about the lack of punctuation. Every Trek movie, and series, up to this point, has used a colon in the title. Well, except for Enterprise, but that’s because it wasn’t quite Star Trek yet.

Anyway, Star Trek Into Darkness will be the twelfth Star Trek movie to grace the silver screen. And suddenly dumping Star Trek Xii into theatres just wouldn’t have worked. »
