  • Video: Star Wars text crashes down on Earth like alphabetical asteroids

    I have NO idea how the text from the opening credits of Star Wars made its way to our galaxy. It’s supposed to all be far, far away! And what are the odds that it’d find its way into Earth’s gravitational pull, only to come raining down on an unassuming suburb? If only the Starship Enterprise would emerge and blast some of the letters out of the sky. The video was shot in… Read More

  • Next Star Trek date announced, with no director

    Time to save the date! Word is out that the sequel to the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie will be out on July 29th, 2012. What we don’t know as of yet is exactly who the director will be.

  • Captain Kirk's missing scene from JJ's Star Trek

    William Shatner did have a part in the new Star Trek as it turns out. It wasn’t a major role like Leonard Nimoy’s, but rather a recording that Nimoy’s Spock would give to the younger Spock at the end of the film. It obviously never made the film but I somewhat wish it had. Read More
