Star Trek Into Darkness had a bigger opening weekend than The Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America and Twilight. But there's one film Into Darkness couldn't beat that stands out: its 2009 predecessor, which took in $75 million over its first Friday-Sunday frame versus the new film's $70 million. Hollywood sequels are supposed to be bigger, in scope, in budget and, most of all, at the box office. Here are three ways to explain what happened to Into Darkness: 1. It Lost Some of Its Payload on Lauch: Or, to put it another way, because the J.J. Abrams-directed adventure opened Thursday (with Wednesday night previews), instead of Friday, ticket sales were spread out over four days instead of »
The CW is holding both "Star-Crossed" and "The 100" in reserve for mid-season duty, but during the recent TV Upfronts they released a few photos from each show's pilot, and we have a look at them all right here.
Both series have a sci-fi tinge, but "The 100" especially, with its post-apocalyptic setting and the presence of Henry Ian Cusick (“Lost,” “Scandal”), has our attention for sure. And while "Star-Crossed" definitely seems to appeal to the more romantic types among us, it has a lot of familiar faces and could be worth watching for one or two episodes at least.
So while you're here, check out the photos below (top row from "The 100" and bottom from "Star-Crossed"). For more info visit "The 100" and "Star-Crossed" on Cwtv.com, and follow "The 100" (@cwthe100) and "Star-Crossed" (@CWStarCrossed) on Twitter.

Robin Williams’ biggest commitment to series television since the days of “Mork & Mindy” highlights a 20th TV slate that is deep, even if not necessarily brimming with international star appeal.
Williams is teaming with another recognizable face, Sarah Michelle Gellar, in the single-cam, father-daughter workplace comedy “The Crazy Ones,” from the pen of a scribe with no small amount of global cachet himself: David E. Kelley.
Kelley’s star Stateside hasn’t shined quite as brightly of late — “Harry’s Law” (NBC) lasted only two seasons, while “Monday Mornings” (TNT) didn’t make it past one, and half-hour isn’t exactly where the “Picket Fences” and “Ally McBeal” creator made his bones, but a series starring Williams in an accessible setting is filled with worldwide potential.
A slam dunk for interest is the limited-series return of Kiefer Sutherland in “24: Live Another Day.” The condensed format »

David Fincher's movie was due to begin shooting in Sydney next month, with the support of a £15m grant from the Australian government. Pitt had been earmarked for the role of cocky master harpooner Ned Land, made famous by Kirk Douglas, but there were reports in February that he had left the project.
The news that Australia had wooed Disney with a multimillion dollar package had been hailed as a sign that the two countries were set to renew their connection after a troubled period in which the strong Australian dollar made the country less attractive to Us studios as a filmmaking location.

The fact that The CW's new series "The Tomorrow People" is providing a regular home for the wonderful Mark Pellegrino is reason enough to give it a shot, but it will also be interesting to see if lightning can strike twice for the Amell family - on the same night.
Check out the first stills and a promo photo, and look for a premiere date announcement soon.

I confess… I bought Stephen King’s epic novel for Under The Dome shortly after it came out and I haven’t had the courage to tackle it quite yet. I mean, there it is on my book shelf, staring back at me, just daring me to devote all my time and energy into tackling all 1088 pages… and I just haven’t done it. It’s hard enough finding the time for all the television I want to catch up on! A-ha! And now CBS has adapted and is premiering the TV series version based upon King’s book on June 24th. Below you’ll fin a pretty cool 2 and a half minute preview of what we can expect. Oh and did I mention the mighty Jeff Fahey is one of the leads of this sucker? Awe yeah…

An extended period of silence regarding Sonic the Hedgehog's next adventure came to an abrupt halt this morning when Nintendo Worldwide President Saturo Iwata announced a new partnership with Sega that will deliver the next Sonic video game, dubbed Lost World, exclusively to Wii U and 3D.
Apart from the lone screenshot you see below, Nintendo nor Sega is offering any additional information about this new game today other than describing is as an "action platformer." However, additional details have been promised to arrive ahead of E3 early next year, which makes me wonder if Sonic: Lost World will be a late 2013 release and will be playable at the big gaming expo.
Nintendo also announced the Sega partnership is bringing a slew of Sega Game Gear games to the Nintendo eShop including:
Columns Crystal Warriors Defenders of Oasis Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine G-loc: Air Battles Shining Force II: »
A slew of new information came out today in Nintendo's latest Direct Video, but one of the larger announcements was that they have made an exlcusive deal with Sega for the next 3 Sonic the Hedgehog games, starting with Sonic Lost World. Come inside for details on the deal as well as the list of Game Gear games that are coming to the 3Ds Virtual Console.
While Sega hasn't been a competitor against Nintendo in a long time, if you were one of those kids who got into the whole Sonic vs. Mario debate back in the day, feel free to call up all your childhood buddies and rub this in their faces. The next three Sonic games are coming exclusively to the Wii U and 3Ds. The first game announced was Sonic Lost World, though they didn't offer up a lot of information on the title, saying that more would »

The opening scene in "Up"; Tom Cruise's heart-stopping climb up the Burj Khalifa in "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol"; "Not Penny's boat." Some of the most memorable pop culture moments from the last decade have one thing in common: musical accompaniment written by Michael Giacchino.
"The stuff I work on tends to be big things like Pixar movies or franchises," Giacchino, 45, told HuffPost Entertainment. "It's kind of fun to be a part of this world, working on movies that I would have loved when I was a kid."
One of those movies is this week's "Star Trek Into Darkness." It's the second time Giacchino has boldly gone into space with the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and the fourth film collaboration between himself and director J.J. Abrams.
"When we first met we became very fast friends because we had a very similar background with regard to our love of filmmaking, »

CBS has released a new TV spot for the Stephen King and Steven Spielberg-produced series Under The Dome. The spot includes even more new footage from the series that give us more insight to the story.
Brian K. Vaughan of Lost is developing the show, and the pilot episode was directed by Niels Arden Ople (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). I really enjoyed the book that the show is based off of, and I think it looks like they've turned it into a great series worth checking out.
The sci-fi thriller is set to premiere on Monday, June 24th at 10 pm.

Due to his experience writing on beloved genre shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Lost, and the fact that his debut as a feature film director, The Cabin in the Woods, was completely awesome, geeks all over the world view Drew Goddard as the next great hope when it comes to their chances of getting more genre-based products that are actually smartly written and funny. Most horror movies and the like are honestly kind of vapid and cheesy, and are the sorts of things that get described as being guilty pleasures, but not Goddard’s work. He’s the sort of talent who makes one proud to be a fan of nerdy things. So for movie fans whose particular brand of escapist poison tends to come from the science fiction side of things, the news that he’s currently negotiating with Fox to write and direct a movie about a man stranded in space should »

CBS has released promotional videos for six of its eight new series premiering next season. The network opted to post behind-the-scenes videos rather than traditional trailers. Included is The Millers with Will Arnett, Mom with Anna Faris, The Crazy Ones with Robin Williams and Hostages with Toni Collette. Cam Gigandet’s legal drama Reckless and the ensemble comedy Friends with Better Live are not included. Watch the clips below. Enjoy!
This heavily serialized thriller is set for a limited run of 15 episodes. Starring Toni Collette, Dylan McDermott and Tate Donovan, Hostages has been compared in spirit to an extended arc from Person of Interest. Like Showtime’s Homeland, the new series is based on an Israeli series by Alon Aranya, Omri Givon and Rotem Shamir. The show’s plot centers on a family wrapped up in a mass political conspiracy that is poised to change their lives forever.
Hostages airs mondays at 10 p. »

The CW has long been one of the best supporters of Our Kind of Shows, and at this year’s Upfronts they put even more money where our hearts are. Of the six new shows announced for the fall and winter schedule, four are for us: The Originals, The Tomorrow People, The 100, and Star-Crossed. Now of course more than one has that trademark The CW soap opera-ish spin on it, but hey, not Every show is for every one of us.
Here to assist in our prejudging are synopses for all, via Deadline, and maybe even better, clips and/or TV spots. There’s not really anything new for The Originals, but fans will want to see it all again anyway. The Tomorrow People features the wonderful Mark Pellegrino so it’s my favorite of the four.

The project is based off a 2012 e-book by author Andy Weir, which centers on an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars, and must find some way to make it back to Earth. The story is said to be a cross between Apollo 13 and Cast Away. Insiders also claim that the story is much different from Gravity, director Alfonso Cuarón's upcoming thriller starring Sandra Bullock as an astronaut lost in space.
Drew Goddard also wrote the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse, which was put on indefinite hold back in January. His other writing credits include Cloverfield, and episodes of hit TV shows such as Lost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, »
It's easy enough to think of J.J Abrams as some kind of overnight success. After all, it's only seven years since his first film as director, "Mission Impossible III," and "Star Trek Into Darkness," which opens on Friday, marks only his fourth film to date. And yet, even when he made that first film, he was already a brand name -- the man behind two bona-fide TV pop culture phenomena in "Alias" and "Lost," and that's only become more true since; his films have all taken at least $200 million worldwide, he's birthed several other successful TV shows, and he's taking over the Holy Grail of nerddom, "Star Wars," with 2015's "Episode VII." But all of this is the peak of nearly 25 years of work, including an awful lot of film and TV that you probably haven't heard of, away from the big franchises and tentpole TV shows that made his name. »

The CW announced its fall 2013-14 slate earlier today, adding five new dramas including a drama about Mary, Queen of Scots called Reign, as well as the highly anticipated Vampire Diaries spinoff titled The Originals, and The Tomorrow People, starring Robbie Amell, brother of Arrow’s Stephen Amell. The network has also released trailers which you can watch below. Let us know which shows you are interested in watching.
The Originals – Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, centuries have passed and the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy and hunger for power have torn the Original Family apart. When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, he »
"The 100" is a new The CW show that we're definitely looking forward to, but the clip that the network shows at its Upfronts in New York wasn't as revealing as we would have liked. While it showed some of the tensions that will likely play out between the characters going forward, it didn't reveal much about why this group of people are landing on Earth and why it's been so long since they last were there.
Fortunately enough of a plot synopsis has been released for the new show to intrigue us. "The 100" is set 97 years after a nuclear war destroyed civilization. In this post-apocalyptic world, the surviving humans send 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to see if it's fit for recolonization. Eliza Taylor looks strong in the leading role, and at least this clip promises that the series will look beautiful.

Watching Star Trek Into Darkness, I was blown away. Sure, the special effects are Oscar-worthy and IMAX is unbelievably immersive, but I was most impressed with the Star Trek franchise's geek to chic transformation. It’s not just 50-year-old Trekkies buying tickets for Star Trek Into Darkness but status-conscious teenagers as well. How did this happen? How can a franchise that was associated with the nerdiest of nerds, the dorkiest of dorks, the geekiest of geeks, become one of the coolest franchises after just one reboot? Star Trek's makeover began with the hiring of J.J. Abrams, who admittedly was Not a Trekkie but demonstrated an appreciation for sci-fi mythology on his ABC series Lost. The reinvention was supported with hot up-and-coming actors Chris Pine, Zoe...
