    Star Wars Episode VII Already Shooting, We’ll Soon Witness the Power of This Fully Armed and Operational Sequel

    J.J. Abrams' sneaky little lens flare-adept elves have already begun shooting the next Star Wars movie according to an interview with Disney Studios' Alan Horn. The movie's production is set to begin in earnest in about six weeks as far as us scruffy-looking Internet nerf herders are concerned, but Abrams apparently got a head start.

    J.J. Abrams Thinks Star Trek Into Darkness Suffered Because of The Awful Tie-In Video Game

    Does anyone actually expect video games based on movie franchises to actually be good? Sure, there are exceptions (and in Riddick's case, the games are actually better), but I don't think there's a single person alive who tears into a tie-in game thinking "Oh boy, this will be worthwhile and enjoyable!" Well, except for J.J. Abrams, that is.

    The casting breakdown for Star Wars: Episode VII has been leaked, and it has one clear focus: Let's make these space dudes hot. In a shocking and unprecedented move by J.J. Abrams, it seems the classic universe will be repopulated with a crew of attractive young people. Also, yes, that is sarcasm.

    J.J. Abrams is Bound to Confuse Star Trek and Star Wars [Video]

    One of the issues that people have with J.J. Abrams on both Star Wars and Star Trek is the idea that he's going to end up confusing the two somehow. What, exactly, does that mean? It's hard to say, but Official Comedy's taken a stab at what they think must be going on with J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Wars.

    The Honest Trailer of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Features Both Spork and Old Spork

    I'm not much of a Star Trek guy, so I don't have much of an opinion about how the J.J. Abrams Star Trek universe compares to the previous (alternate?) ones. Screen Junkies sure has some opinions, though, and they made this Honest Trailer of Star Trek to give vent to a couple of them. They also made it because a bunch of fans were asking for it on Twitter. It's also pretty hilarious.

    Latest Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer Features Hidden Hyperlink [Video]

    Benedict "Sherlock" Cumberbatch really dislikes us -- or at least our futuristic descendants, in the new Star Trek Into Darkness trailer that hit the web. You can give it a watch, and check out the slick secret poster that director J.J. Abrams and the Star Trek marketers are teasing us with, below the fold.

    Watch The New Star Trek Into Darkness Right Here, Right Now

    The first teaser and trailer for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness were flashy and vague, doing little to actually show much about the movie besides that, yes, another Star Trek movie was coming, and isn't that exciting? The new trailer just dropped, and it gives a bit more detail about the upcoming Trek. Heck, there's even a Spock joke thrown in there for good measure.

    It’s Official: J.J. Abrams Really Will Direct Star Wars: Episode VII

    Prepare for a whole new round of lens flare jokes, people, as things just got real. It was initially reported this past Thursday that J.J. Abrams would be directing Star Wars: Episode VII. This news was obviously met with more than a little suspicion, especially since Abrams himself had previously said he wouldn't be doing so. Well, turns out that wasn't as definitive as everyone thought. Per a press release from late last night, it's officially official: J.J. Abrams really will be directing Star Wars: Episode VII.

    J.J. Abrams Reportedly Set to Direct Star Wars: Episode VII

    What once began as a mere geeky flight of fancy appears to have become a reality now that various sources are reporting that J.J. Abrams has been given the prestigious honor of directing the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. Although Abrams had initially said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he wouldn't take on the task of overseeing the cinematic future of George Lucas' influential science fiction epic, it looks as though the fan-favorite creative visionary isn't passing up the chance to guide the next chapter in the Star Wars mythology.

    New Trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness is Just as Vague as the Teaser, But Longer

    Hey, J.J. Abrams, can we sit and talk for a quick minute? Okay, look, we're not saying that we aren't brimming with excitement for the release of Star Trek Into Darkness -- our enthusiasm for the first film no doubt proves this. It's just that, and we say this not as a slight against your writing talents and mastery of the craft, you don't have a grasp of what separates a teaser from a trailer. The teaser? Perfection. The trailer, well, you just added another minute and did nothing to up the ante or give us an inkling of what the story is about. Are the tribbles at the center of all this? It's the tribbles, isn't it, J.J.?

    LOST Makes More Sense as a Point-and-Click Adventure Game

    Somewhere, in an alternate universe, J.J. Abrams doesn't make TV shows. He makes video games instead. There are definitely some things that our doplegangers are missing out on... (Zach Snyder tries to reboot Star Trek. Yikes.) It's not all bad, though: In the world where J.J. Abrams makes video games, then Lost obviously replaces The Secret of Monkey Island as the pinnacle of point-and-click adventure games.

    NBC Does Something Right, Puts Entire Pilot for Revolution Online

    Every so often, television studios like to prove that they're not entirely without merit. That's not to say that they're quick to embrace change, but they can eventually come around. Kind of like how Neptune eventually goes around the Sun. NBC has proven this by hosting the entire pilot of J.J. Abrams' newest television series, Revolution, online for everyone to view. They've even enabled the ability to embed the video, as you can see above. Given that the series is about a world without power, it's somewhat amusing that they've gone ahead and provided it to the medium that absolutely relies on a functioning grid.

    J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot to Produce Sci-Fi Film About the Higgs Boson

    Remember all that handwringing that went on around the time as CERN prepared to fire up the Large Hadron Collider? Some people were concerned that the enormous particle accelerator would destroy all life as we know it. Thankfully that turned out to not be the case, but it looks like someone thought it sounded like a dandy sci-fi flick.
