Relentless action, 3D spectacle, and IMAX-size scope. In less than 90 seconds all that and more is discussed in regards to J.J. Abrams‘ next movie, Star Trek Into Darkness. With all the news centering on that other film Abrams will soon work on, it’s been easy to overlook this film, a sequel to the hit 2009 Star Trek revival.

Most of you probably know some of the story of Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln: the director has wanted to make the film for years, but needed to secure the proper script, the proper actor, and timely financing. Things finally came together in 2011, and the result is Spielberg’s best film in several years, and a particularly timely movie that perfectly captures not only much of the essence of Abraham Lincoln and the time in which he lived, but also reflects our own culture and politics.
The new 20-minute “making of” special Lincoln: An American Journey is a fairly comprehensive account of the development of the film, complete with many detailed interviews and some great early pictures and footage. It’s a must-see for anyone who was moved by the film. Read More »

They’re not quite trailers, but two new videos featuring footage and updates on Star Trek Into Darkness have come online. The first is an 18-minute video called ”Secrets From Inside Bad Robot” which takes the viewer on a tour through the mythic production company, with a strong focus on its editing bays and workflow. In the video, there are a bunch of quick, new glimpses at the J.J. Abrams directed sequel.
The second video is the official onstage annoucncement of the Star Trek Into Darkness app, which was revealed earlier this week. Co-star Alice Eve hit the stage to explain how the app will not only come into play during the Super Bowl, but will faciliate a real world easter egg hunt for the May 17 release.

Heading into 2012, two films many of us were looking forward to were the new movies from Rian Johnson and Judd Apatow: Looper and This is 40. Now that we’ve seen them, why not see a bit more? After all, whether or not you loved or loathed either film (read my review of each at these links) it’s difficult to dispute that everything Johnson or Apatow does is worth watching.
Two deleted scenes from This is 40 have been posted, including a really funny one with Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, and another with indie songwriter Mark Oliver Everett of Eels. Then there’s a tense scene from Looper featuring Emily Blunt, Garret Dillahunt and a hamper. Check them out below. Read More »
