J.J. Abrams is famous for his devotion to secrecy, but even he knows when to open up and perform a good deed. After a Reddit post made the rounds last week about the wish of a Trekkie stricken with terminal cancer, the filmmaker got in touch with the man and his wife to offer a private screening of Star Trek Into Darkness.
Though the couple were “sworn to secrecy” about the details of the picture, they reported that they enjoyed it “immensely” and were touched by Abrams’ gesture. Read more after the jump, and then check out some new high-res stills from the film.

Sam Raimi‘s new prequel to The Wizard of Oz opens in a couple months, and to complement the most recent TV spots and trailer, we’ve got some new high-res photos that show off the characters played by James Franco, Michelle Williams, and others.
Oz: The Great and Powerful follows a magician (Franco) whose escape from a small town con game turns into a path to a new world, as he pilots a balloon that is blown off course into Oz. There he meets a trio of witches (Williams, Mila Kunis, and Rachel Weisz) and a few odd characters such as the monkey Finley (voiced by Zach Braff) and China Girl (voiced by Joey King).
The new images show off the designs and costumes that bring the characters to life; even if the film looks a bit too much like Alice in Wonderland for your taste, the costumes (by Gary Jones, who also did Spider-Man 2) are pretty spectacular. Read More »

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has been through some pretty rough stuff during his tenure as Iron Man, but he’s always managed to pull through with his trademark wit and charm. The marketing materials for Iron Man 3, however, suggest that even he may find he has his limits. A new high-res image shows the titular hero looking not just bloodied and battered, but emotionally defeated as well. Check it out after the jump.

Yesterday we saw some new official photos from Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, which stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer as Tonto and the Ranger, respectively. Now we’ve got a couple more new photos along with a strange and mysterious teaser poster. The poster highlights Tonto over the Ranger, demonstrating that while Hammer’s character may get the film’s title, this is really Depp’s show. Read More »
A few weeks ago, rumors began to circulate that Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus would have over a half hour of deleted scenes, a majority of which would be from the controversial ending. 20th Century Fox never confirmed this and since, it seems increasingly likely that’s not the case. The latest rumor is that the disc will have just over 20 minutes of extra and extended scenes with no word on how much of it will be from the ending. However, you can factor out at least half of it.
That’s because 10 minutes of deleted scenes from the film have made their way online: six scenes in total. They certainly give some of the characters more motivation and personality but there’s no real answers here. Just fat that was pretty expertly trimmed. After the jump, check out the interesting, but also kind of boring footage, as well as a bunch of gruesome behind the scenes images and concept sketches. Read More »
When Disney first unveiled Wreck-It Ralph to the world, it almost seemed too good to be true. The most storied animation studio in the world was making a wholly original, video game inspired film, chock full of your favorite characters. Directed by Rich Moore and featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, the film won’t be out until November 2. Despite presentations at D23 Expo, CinemaCon, Comic-Con, an awesome trailer and more, there’s still much to discover about the world of Wreck-It Ralph.
Earlier this week, Disney invited several journalists to their Animation Studios in Burbank, CA to learn all about this film and watch about 25 minutes of footage. The footage was very rough and unfinished, but extremely promising and exciting. We also spoke to people from all facets of the production and have come up with 50 things you may not know about Wreck-It Ralph.
How do Mentos, the Microsoft Kinect and the Royal Wedding fit in? What percentage of their work has each department completed? Which records has the film already set? Was there a full game that got cut from the film? And what new story tidbits were revealed in the footage? It’s all after the jump, complete with brand new images. Read More »
A batch of new images from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have hit today, but Warner Bros., MGM, and Entertainment Weekly have hit upon an unusual and (in this case) appropriate way to present them all at once. The images are stitched together to form one giant image “scroll” that shows several recognizable scenes from the first half of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s novel.
That piece above is just part of the image, and those who know the novel will instantly recognize a couple of the scenes depicted. Nearly everyone will recognize the moment on the left, in which Bilbo (Martin Freeman) uses the sword Sting to light his way through an underground cavern inhabited by Gollum (Andy Serkis). The other images below show Wargs howling around goblin-lit fires meant to flush Bilbo and his company from trees on the far side of the Misty Mountains, and the first look at Gandalf (Ian McKellen) speaking with the man-bear Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt).
One version of the full image is below. Read More »
