JJ Abrams and his cohorts at Bad Robot are big on burying little clues and viral marketing into promotional material, so it only makes sense that the fresh Star Trek Into Darkness international trailer hid a clue leading to a brand new theatrical one-sheet right out in the open.
A new international trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness provides by far the most comprehensive overview of the sequel's story that we've seen yet.
With less than two months until the twelfth Star Trek film spills its secrets on May 17th, we have a pair of new stills from Star Trek Into Darkness.
Author, illustrator, and filmmaker William Joyce has had a vast and illustrious career in several different mediums.
In addition to writing and illustrating over fifty children’s books including George Shrinks, and Rolie Polie Olie, he has also worked as a conceptual artist on such Pixar classics as Toy Story, and A Bug’s Life, produced the hit film Robots, and most recently won an Academy Award for writing and directing the short film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. Not too mention that his book The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs has been made into the upcoming 3D computer animated film Epic, which opens in theaters on May 24th. But he is probably best known for his popular series of novels entitled The Guardians of Childhood, which were adapted into last year’s box office smash Rise of the Guardians and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning March 12th.
Each book in the series builds a super hero mythology around holiday characters like Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, The Sandman, and the Tooth Fairy. The film takes those characters, as well as new addition Jack Frost, and builds a Justice League type team that must take on the evil Pitch Black, also known as The Boogeyman. Rise of the Guardians, which was directed by Peter Ramsey (Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space) and produced by DreamWorks Animation, boasts an impressive cast of voice actors including Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October) as Nicholas St. North (Santa Clause), Hugh Jackman (X-Men) as E. Aster Bunnymund (Easter Bunny), Isla Fisher (Bachelorette) as Tooth (Tooth Fairy), Chris Pine (Star Trek) as Jack Frost, and Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) as Pitch Black.
I recently had a chance to speak with author, illustrator, and executive producer William Joyce about his work on Rise of the Guardians, and the possibility of a sequel. The multitalented novelist and filmmaker discussed the recent movie, the concept for the project, what inspired the idea and its characters, the incredible cast of voice talent, if he ever considered writing the film’s screenplay, legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall), and the prospect of making a sequel to the film.
Synopsis: When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
Paramount Pictures has offered up a weekend addition the current onslaught of summer blockbuster trailers: a new teaser for Star Trek Into Darkness.
No less a source than director and producer J.J. Abrams is talking up two new additions to his rebooted Federation in this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness. Neither one of these new additions is John Harrison, so relinquish any expectation that the notoriously secretive Abrams has spilled any villainous beans.
Instead, he's talking about the reintroduction of Klingons and Carol Marcus.
Who is John Harrison? He's the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness.
But who is he? We don't really know, and an international featurette sure isn't going to tell us. But his black leather coat flaps dramatically on a new motion for the twelfth installment in the theatrical Star Trek franchise.
A Good Day to Die Hard opened number one at the box office over President’s Day weekend proving that John McClane (Bruce Willis) and the long-running franchise is still beloved by movie audiences everywhere.
The film, which is the fifth installment in the action franchise following the original Die Hard, Die Hard 2: Die Harder, Die Hard with a Vengeance, and Live Free or Die Hard, is the first film in the series to take place on foreign soil. When McClane’s estranged son, Jack (Jai Courtney), is arrested for murder, John must travel to Moscow to help save his boy. But all is not as it seems, as Jack is actually a CIA operative undercover tracking a dangerous group of terrorists trying to steal weapons of mass destruction. Now it is up to the father and son team to put their differences aside and do what McClanes do best … fight terrorists. Director John Moore, best known for helming action films like Behind Enemy Lines, Flight of the Phoenix, and Max Payne, takes over the series from former franchise directors John McTiernan (Die Hard, Die Hard with a Vengeance), Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2: Die Harder), and Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard), respectively.
I recently had a chance to sit down with John Moore to talk about his work on A Good Day to Die Hard, and the challenges of taking over the iconic franchise. The outspoken director discussed the new film, becoming a Die Hard director, collaborating with series star Bruce Willis, the daunting task of casting John McClane’s son, the big name actors who were considered for the role, the organic way he fit in McClane’s famous catch phrase, and if he would like to return to direct the inevitable Die Hard 6.
Chris Pine makes an excellent Captain Kirk, Zachary Quinto is a tremendous Mr. Spock, and Benedict Cumberbatch will surely provide a resplendent John Harrison – whoever that ends up being – so why not check out all three actors in a pair of new images from Star Trek Into Darkness?
Oh, and another castmember has gone on record saying who the villain of this summer's sequel isn't.
