Thanks to the fact that every actor in the film is denying it while all of the film’s marketing seems to suggest it, the question of whether or not classic Star Trek big bad Khan is the villain in Star Trek Into Darkness is driving the Trek fan community bonkers.  For every trailer clip that seems to indicate J.J. Abrams is going full Wrath of...

Look, maybe it’s time we give up on the whole “hey, is Khan gonna be in this thing or not?” game with Star Trek Into Darkness, Paramount and J.J. Abrams, because it’s not a fight we’re winning.  Every new trailer or image only serves to confuse the matter further, so maybe we should just be patient and wait until the film’s May 17th release date to see—oh, who am I...

Star Trek Into Darkness is certainly one of the most anticipated films of 2013—not only because of the never ending “is the villain secretly Khan?” debate—but also because the IMAX 3D CGI extravaganza (and any other trends you can think of—Smell-o-Vision?  Is it in Smell-o-Vision, too?) likely marks the final moment in the Star Trek franchise...

Another day, another chance to discuss whether or not the villain portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Trek Into Darkness is Khan, or just some random dude named “John Harrison.”  Fan speculation is rampant, and recent advertising for the film isn’t helping (there’s a brief clip of two hands pressed against glass, referencing the tragic ending...

So it’s finally here—the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer that will answer all your questions, finally reveal who the film’s Big Bad really is, and… er, wait, nevermind.  Yes, it’s a full trailer, but no, we still have no idea what the hell is happening in this movie, aside from the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch is still denying he’s playing Khan and that...

The big release this week is The Dark Knight Rises, but there’s something for everyone this week, from hidden gems, to stone cold masterpieces.

For months now, we’ve agonized over the ludicrously titled Star Trek reboot sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness—will Khan be in it?  Will Captain Kirk be as much of an overacted cartoon character as he was in the first film?  Will there be another villain motivated by another ridiculous reason for revenge coupled with massive plot holes?  None of that is for certain. ...
