News that the first nine minutes of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness would screen exclusively with IMAX 3D prints of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December 14th was either incredibly exciting or incredibly frustrating. If you’re one of those lucky few who has a real IMAX theater in your town, you were probably excited. If not, you were probably considering driving to one. Well, don’t fret just yet. Paramount will allow everyone to get a dose of Star Trek goodness on December 14.
Non-IMAX screenings of The Hobbit (including those in High Frame Rate) will have the first official trailer for the May 17th film attached. Read more after the jump, including Chris Pine’s reaction to the IMAX news. Read More »

Marc Forster‘s adaptation of the Max Brooks novel World War Z ran into some problems a few months ago when it had to go in for extensive rewrites and reshoots late in the game. Starring Brad Pitt as the Guy Who Has to Save the World (very loosely based on the primary narrator of the novel, a UN inspector whose work documents a zombie pandemic) the film was pushed from a late 2012 release back to June 21, 2013.
The trailer for World War Z will hit on Thursday, but in the meantime check out a bit of footage thanks to an Entertainment Tonight tease for the show’s coverage of the film. The talking heads aren’t nearly as irritating as they typically are. OK, they’re still pretty irritating, but at least you’ve got a chance to get a look at what Forster has done with loads and loads of fast-moving digital zombies. Read More »

What we see is grim, greenish, and even a bit grimy, and there’s a replication of the classic Sam Raimi POV shot that was one of the series’ visual hallmarks. And you’ll even get a look at the book of the dead (seen in part above) to tease what’s coming next. Read More »

Here’s your first look at footage from Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln, which comes in the form of a trailer for the trailer. The real trailer will hit on September 13, after the previously announced Google+ Hangout with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. But for now you can get your first taste of footage from the film below.
You won’t see much of Daniel Day-Lewis in motion as the sixteenth President of the United States, but you will hear him.

The first Lincoln footage will be shown via a Google+ hangout (that is: a fancy video chat) with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, on September 13.
A bit more info is below. Read More »
