Just because J.J. Abrams and the crew of the Enterprise are currently hard at work filming the still-untitled sequel to 2009’s Star Trek, doesn’t mean there isn’t anything new to report. Several of the film’s cast and crew have been out and about giving hints about what’s going on behind closed doors. For example, Zoe Saldana was at the Sundance Film Festival promoting The Words (review here) and gave a few of info about the developing relationships between Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto), and Spock and her character Uhura.

Then there’s the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy, who revealed he’ll be visiting the set of the film soon, though everyone has previously said no original cast members will be in the film this time around. Finally, the new Spock, Quinto, turned some heads when he mentioned that the script for the film, written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof was changing on a daily basis. Orci took to the Internet to clear that up and hinted at the time frame of the sequel.

‘Super 8′ Easter Eggs

JJ Abrams is obsessed with mystery, and often hides a lot of easter eggs in his films and tv shows. In the past we’ve chronicled easter eggs in the Pixar movies Toy Story 3, WALL-E, and Up, as well as some other films. So it should come as no surprise that his latest movie, Super 8, is also packed with fun hidden bits.

For example: Did you know that Leonard Nimoy appars in the movie? How about that another one of JJ’s Star Trek stars plays “the monster”? Did you spot the references to Lost, Alias and The Twilight Zone? After the jump I’ve compiled 16 hidden easter eggs which can be found in the movie.

Be warned: for those of you who havent seen the film yet, the following article may contain spoilers.

In the past couple days there has been a lot of talk about the CGI characters in Green Lantern getting voice actors cast well into the post-production process. Seemingly meant just to prove that such a thing happens relatively often, and that Green Lantern isn’t in trouble because of it, here’s some Transformers: Dark of the Moon casting news. While the film has been shot and in post-production for some time, Leonard Nimoy was just cast as Sentinel Prime. Read More »

I’ve been hearing about a possible sequel to Free Enterprise for over ten years now. I really thought it was a pipe dream that would never happen. But apparently the sequel is actually happening, likely thanks to the recent jump in Trek popularity thanks to the JJ AbramsStar Trek-reboot. If you haven’t yet watched Robert Meyer Burnett‘s 1998 indie film, it can be easily described as Swingers for sci-fi geeks. It was about two aspiring LA filmmakers/Trek geeks who meet their screen idol, William Shatner (played by himself), who turns out to be nothing like the person they had imagined. The film has gone on to become something of a cult classic among geeks, and I highly recommend you check it out.

Burnett has been trying to get a sequel greenlit for years now, and it is now falling into place.

Leonard Nimoy to Retire From Acting


For years after the original broadcast of Star Trek, Leonard Nimoy struggled with identification as his most famous character, the half-Vulcan Mister Spock. He agreed to make Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan only on the condition that Spock would be killed off in grand fashion, but the film turned out well enough that he not only reprised the character in the third film, but directed the picture as well. (Quick, what was Nimoy’s most financially successful directorial effort? Answer: Three Men and a Baby.)

Now Nimoy has made his final appearance as Spock, in last year’s Star Trek, and will make his final acting appearance, period, on an upcoming episode of Fringe. Nimoy says that, after sixty years of acting, he plans to retire for good. Read More »
