The reinvigorated Star Trek movie franchise must be feeling a little bit like an unloved stepchild since J.J. Abrams decided to abandon Gene Roddenberry's nerdier baby in favor of the more athletic and popular Star Wars franchise.
Just to remind everyone who has been busy fancasting young Han Solo, we've got five new images from this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness, along with two magazine cover showcasing the high cheekbones of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and the mysterious John Harrison.
Sony Pictures has officially announced the start of production on next year's sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man.

Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner have come so far in the four movies since they first lived life a quarter mile at a time in 2000's The Fast and the Furious.

With a sixty-second spot airing during Sunday's Super Bowl XLVII, Disney is laying on the Iron Man 3 hype extra thick. The latest Marvel morsel intended to whet our collective appetite before Sunday is an entirely new poster.
Opening in theaters on February 1st is the new horror thriller The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, which is a companion piece to '2009s The Haunting in Connecticut and is based on true events. The film was directed by longtime editor Tom Elkins (The Apparition), and features an excellent cast that includes Chad Michael Murray (House of Wax), Katee Sackhoff (TV's Battlestar Galactica), Abigail Spencer (Cowboys & Aliens), Cicely Tyson (The Help), and young actress Emily Alyn Lind (Movie 43).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with both Katee Sackhoff and Emily Alyn Lind to talk about their work on The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia. The two actresses discussed the new film, their research into the real life events it is based on, working with director Tom Elkins, if Lind was ever scared on set, the "real spirits" that haunted the set, how the cast kept the atmosphere light on set, their favorite ghost movies, and why Sackhoff wanted to make a horror film for the first time.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is turning into a thoroughly unconventional franchise effort, a sequel to a prequel that wraps itself around the movies getting prequelized in the first place. Not only is the text itself turning into an X-pretzel, but Bryan Singer, the director of X-Men and X2, is once again directing the mutant mayhem.

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to speak with legendary veteran actor Peter Weller on the red carpet for his new film Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part 2, which will be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning January 29th. In addition to discussing playing the caped crusader (which will run in a separate article), Weller gave his reluctant opinion on his Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams' decision to "jump spaceships" and direct Star Wars: Episode VII, as well as if he would be interested in playing a Jedi Master in the upcoming film, and the rumors that he is actually playing Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness.
