When JJ Abrams Star Trek came out in 2009 I, like many others, really liked it. I actually saw it three times in theaters with one showing being on IMAX. Purists had a lot of problems with the movie, but it worked as a fun reboot and the cast nailed the characters perfectly. So there were high hopes for the sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, but unfortunately the movie falls flat on its face at warp... more.

Most likely due to show up with either Star Trek this week or Fast and the Furious next week in theaters, Universal has released the full two-and-a-half minute trailer for Riddick online.

On the eve of the new Star Trek movie release, Business Insider went to Neil deGrasse Tyson and asked him which scifi franchise he liked more; Star Wars or Star Trek.

While Netflix has already crushed people's dreams of a return of Firefly, another science fiction series stands the chance of returning to the service. With traditional Star Trek as we know it dead with JJ Abrams' idiotic action movies, people are longing for a Star Trek television series. With the third and fourth seasons of Enterprise being so good, could that be our last hope for a true Star Tr... more.

Artist Paul Shipper whipped up this stunning poster for Star Trek 2009 that's lightyears better than any of the official posters that Paramount put out for the movie four years ago. It obviously takes inspiration from the original poster for The Motion Picture, and has a very Drew Struzan style to it. He's working on a poster for ... more.

It's not uncommon for other directors to step in and do one shot or scene in a friend's movie. Tarantino did a scene in Sin City, and Spielberg (through animatics) "directed" the lava waterfall sequence in Revenge of the Sith. Earlier this year Edgar Wright said he directed a shot in one of this summer's movies, which immediately made everyone think he slipped Ant Man into Iron Man 3. Since tha... more.
