Star Trek: Into Darkness was released in theaters last week and altho the movie has been getting a mostly positive response from viewers, not everyone is pleased with the film. One of the criticisms of Into Darkness falls squarely on the shoulders of director J.J. Abrams for choosing to include a gratuitous shot of actress Alice Eve (who plays a brilliant scientist in the film) in her underwear. To make up for this supposed infraction, Abrams shared on Conan last night a gratuitous “deleted” scene of actor Benedict Cumberbatch (who plays the film’s villain) in the shower. I’d say that the release of this scene makes up for his crime, don’t you? Click the embed above to see what all the fuss is about :D
JGL's Directorial Debut Looks Friggen Awesome!
I’m not gonna lie– I was nervous for this one y’all. When actors get behind the camera and start directing, it doesn’t always pan out. We heard about Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s directrial debut Don Jon a while back, and while I was excited, I was also wondering if JGL would be able to pull it off. Well, judging by this first trailer, I think we can expect some very good things. JGL plays a Jersey Shore-type porn addict who starts to fall for a girl (Scarlett Johansson) and, naturally, things get complicated from there. Peep the video for more! Apparently, there’s also a little hint at a movie-within-a-movie, featuring Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway– awesome.
Don Jon hits theatres on October 18th.
OK … I hope you’re sitting down right now because I have some news that will COMPLETELY BLOW YOUR MIND. The 1996 film The Craft has been adapted into a stage musical and altho the production is not yet complete, the whole show was workshopped recently. Video from the live workshop performance has been uploaded online and the vids give us a very good feel for how the show may turn out. Now, some of y’all should know that The Craft is one of my fave movies (along with Clueless and Empire Records) so news that it has been adapted into a musical is more than I could have ever dreamed possible.

"The fate of your planet rests in your hands"
We are less than a month away from the release of Superman: Man of Steel but today we get one last movie trailer to check out before the film hits theaters on June 14. As you may recall, we’ve previously seen sweeping, emotional trailers for Man of Steel but the just-released newest trailer is all action. Check out the embed above and get a taste for just how action-packed Man of Steel will be. We have mere weeks left to go before Superman flies into movie theaters … are you ready? Cuz after watching this trailer (a few times) I am SO damn ready.
More and Faster
Back in March we got our first look at the first official trailer for The Wolverine and today we get to see official trailer #2. As you can see in this new trailer via the embed above, Wolverine is reunited with one of his old X-Men compatriots … a very special compatriot, actually. I’m not always very excited about stand alone movies like this that focus on one character (outside of the rest of the films that feature more than one member of X-Men) but I like what I see from this movie so far. The Wolverine opens in theaters on July 26 … and I think I’ll be there.

The Return Of Mystique
Over the last few months we’ve been hearing news here and there about the upcoming X-Men sequel, Days of Future Past. Halle Berry is reprising her role as Storm (to the disappointment of many, many people), and Hugh Jackman will be returning as Wolverine, along with Nicholas Hoult who played the young Beast in X-Men: First Class. Today director Bryan Singer tweeted the first look at Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence rocking the blue Mystique costume, as she’ll also be reprising her role in the upcoming movie.

Just watch the trailer! Blood Ties looks gritty, gangsta, and hella intense. I’m sooo in!

These Afros Are Sooo Appropriate
Yaaasssss! Last week we heard the awesome news that Kanye West (AKA Young Yeezus) had joined the cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. But wait– there are more rappers! Drizzy Drake was recently photographed on set, and now I really, really can’t wait for this movie! I mean, the thought of him being in a film like this isn’t quite as shocking as Kanye‘s casting; many of us still refer to Drake as ‘Jimmy from Degrassi.’ But this is still hilarious.

Brick Still Can't Get It Together
We recently heard the best news ever– Kanye West has joined the cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. I mean, c’mon. This is clearly going to be the greatest thing to hit the cinema since… Rust And Bone?! LMAO, but seriously. We have a new mini-trailer to check out and although Yeezy isn’t in it, it’s another great way to get us excited for the upcoming sequel. Peep the video above and watch Steve Carrell (AKA Brick) struggle with his catchphrase, yet again.
It Looks Like the Protest was a Success
Earlier this month the Walt Disney Company crowned Brave character Princess Merida as its 11th Disney Princess and celebrated by giving the character a makeover that slimmed her down and “sexed” her up. As a result, angry fans launched a public protest of the changes and demanded that Disney Pixar undo the changes to the character so that she can “exist” as non-glam character she was created to be. Today we hear from Disney Pixar officially on Facebook that they are listening to the fan backlash and have promised that the “integrity and appearance” of Princess Merida will NOT be changed after all. I’d say that the angry fans handily won this battle. Click below to read the full text of Disney Pixar‘s Merida statement. More »
