    Rumor: Pixar May Be Making A Star Wars Movie

    Since JJ Abrams confirmed on Monday that Episode VII is a real thing and not just some intricate smokescreen designed to lure grown men out of their mother's basements, we've had a lot of emotions to explore. We'd barely recovered when the rumor that we can expect a Pixar Star Wars in the future had us feeling a disturbance in the force again.

    Episode VII Has A Completed Script, Will Begin Filming in May 2014

    Welp, J.J. Abrams has confirmed it -- they're officially done with the Star Wars: Episode VII. It's starting to occur to us that this is actually happening and isn't some elaborate trick being pulled on us by a whole bunch of movie producers. Oh god. Oh god, we're getting more Star Wars. Someone hold us.

    Episode VII, Quit Playing Games With Our Heart!

    The rumor mill surrounding Episode VII continues to churn and emotionally exhaust us. Thankfully, recent rewrite updates are probably good news for anyone with a heart: our favorite trio from the original trilogy might be given one last "starring" role before forever becoming holograms in movie history.

    The Star Trek: Derp Edition Trailer Is The Final Frontier In Hilarity

    We once told you that the Star Wars: Derp Edition trailer was the best-ever use of bloopers. Then, we were pretty sure that award actually went to The Avengers: Derp Edition. But the folks at Slacktory have returned to prove us wrong, yet again, with this herp-derptastic edit of Star Trek (2009). No, it's not just Star Trek Into Darkness.

    Bad Robot Tweeted the First Star Wars: Episode VII Production Photo, This Is Happening

    J.J. Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, just tweeted the first production photo from Star Wars: Episode VII, and it's R2-D2! Have we said how excited we are that Episode VII has Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan? Or because the original Star Wars cast is involved? It's an unhealthy amount of excited.

    J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan Will Write Star Wars Episode VII

    Star Wars Episode VII will be written by Empireand Jedi co-screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, but he won't be working alone. Kasdan will be joined in his writing duties by J.J. Abrams who is also directing the film. This should put to rest any worries about how VII will fit into the Star Wars universe.

    J.J. Abrams Definitely Not Directing Star Trek 3, Fans Either Thrilled or Horrified

    Whether you love or hate J.J. Abrams’s recent Star Trek reboots, there’s no denying that he’s managed to breathe new life into the franchise (mostly via handsome men) – which is why the news of his departure from the next film as director is a pretty big deal.

    Update: Man Sends Model Of U.S.S. Enterprise Into Space (Almost) [Video]

    According to Steve Schnier, no one has ever sent a model of the U.S.S. Enterprise into space before. That's not a world he wanted to live in, so he decided to do it himself. On April 28th Schnier and his wife Heather Shaw used a balloon to launch a model of the Enterprise 100,000 feet in the air. That's not quite space, but at just under 19 miles high, it sure makes for a lovely video.

    Don’t Get Cocky: Harrison Ford Rumored to be Returning as Han Solo in Episode VII

    Somebody fired a proton torpedo into the Internet's thermal exhaust port today, because it blew up with the story that Harrison Ford will definitely be returning as Han Solo in Star Wars: Episode VII. The source of the story is El Mayimbe from Latino Review, and he dropped the news on Fox News Latino, but so far there's been no official word from anyone actually in a position to make a definitive statement. Maybe we should all just take a breath here.

    J.J. Abrams in Talks With Valve About Half-Life and Portal Films

    In his continued attempts to control everything we love, today J.J. Abrams said he's in talks with Valve co-founder Gabe Newell about bringing Portal and Half-Life to the big screen. These talks are in the very early stages, and a lot can happen to derail the projects, but Abrams has said, "Both a Portal and Half-Life movie are things I want to see." Us too, Mr. Abrams. Us too.

    This “Homemade” Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer is Adorable

    The trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness looked pretty amazing, but it lacked that "homemade" feeling. That's why the folks at Dust Films went ahead and made their own homemade shot-for-shot version. I've got to say, even if this was the real trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, I'd still probably go see it. I might even want to see this version more. Well done, Dust Films. You can even see a side-by-side comparison of the two trailers after the jump.

    Wake Up, Everybody! The Trailer For Star Trek Into Darkness Is Here, This Is Not A Drill

    There are days when it's just not worth it to get out of bed. Days when the only reasonable thing to do upon waking is hit the snooze button, draw the blankets back over your head, and roll back over into the welcoming arms of sleep. This is not one of those days, folks, as we just woke up to the just released teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, and if that's not worth waking up for, we don't know what is. So rouse that sleepy head, put on a pot of coffee and check out what you're in store for next summer -- lava lakes, terrified stares, and no shortage of things exploding, all narrated by a guy who sounds way more menacing and intimidating than someone named Benedict Cumberbatch has any right to. Then click replay and watch it again, because seriously, this looks kind of sweet and now that we're actually recalling how good JJ Abrams first foray into the Trek universe was, getting pumped for this one has officially commenced. In all seriousness though -- if you can watch the trailer after the jump without getting out of bed...we recommend that pretty highly.

    J.J. Abrams Producing Old-Timey Robot Romp Boilerplate

    Hopefully J.J. Abrams' company Bad Robot won't live up to its name when it adapts graphic novel Boilerplate: History’s Mechanical Marvel into a feature film. Unless by "Bad" Robot, we mean super sneaky sinister evil robot that's only pretending to be on our side as he fights alongside Teddy Roosevelt. Yes, that's a thing the robot does, so this is going to be awesome. But wait, the robot did a whole lot more in the wonderful alternate (or is it?) history in which he lived. According to Heat Vision, Boilerplate "purports to tell the story of the world’s first robot, who, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, fought alongside Teddy Roosevelt and Lawrence of Arabia, journeyed to the South Pole and was involved in the silent movie business before disappearing on the battlefields of World War I." Finally, my conspiracy-of-one theory has been proven correct. I knew the South Pole would be impossible to get to without robot assistance.

    J.J. Abrams And Joss Whedon’s Comic Con Panel [Full Video]

    When we first heard that J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon were going to be on a panel together, needless to say we were very excited. Well last night it finally happened. And while there was no big announcement of a collaboration (and we knew not to expect one), the panel was a great insight into the creative process these guys have and the geeky bond they share.

    Rumor: Joss Whedon And J.J. Abrams to Unite at Comic-Con

    According to the Hero Complex blog at the LA Times, a rumor is circulating that Entertainment Weekly is going to sponsor an epic duo of a panel at this year's Comic-Con, uniting two of the greatest creators of nerd media: Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams. Unfortunately, this rumor doesn't come along with any similar rumors regarding covert partnerships on secret projects, so it's probably just epic for epic's sake.
