the Star Trek villian is… John Harrison?

Up until today, most people have assumed that (the great) Benedict Cumberbatch was playing either Kahn or Gary Mitchell in ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’. That was before Paramount released this picture labeling Zachary Quinto as Spock, Chris Pine as Kirk, and Benedict Cumberbatch as… John Harrison. This guy:

“In ‘Space Seed,’ Harrison was nearly suffocated to death on the Enterprise bridge by unfrozen superman Khan.”

You know I am paying to see this movie, right? I’d kinda like to something about it. Do I even get a real Star Trek ticket when I buy one or would that ruin the surprise? Is there a theater behind the door I’m sent to or does it just lock me out in the alley?

the Japanese ‘Star Trek’ trailer has more footage, Japanese

There’s a longer trailer due next week, and a nine minute trailer in front of ‘the Hobbit’ in IMAX, but today we finally got a teaser for JJ Abrams ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’. And since he can’t market anything without some secret Japanese thing, there is of course a secret Japanese thing. In this case a slightly longer trailer with new footage at the end, where Spock does his hand thing to a sickly looking person behind glass.

Is that Kirk? Is he dying? Is that what Sherlock is talking about? Maybe the twenty dollar bill in my hand right now will get Abrams to spill some secrets.

Star Trek and Superman have new posters

We still haven’t had a real trailer yet for ‘Man of Steel’ or ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’, but today we do have the hundredth best thing; movie posters.

One shows the most malleable Superman yet, in tights that somehow still show his abs, allowing himself to be led away in handcuffs by 4 cops who would shit their pants at a Criss Angel show due to their unwavering faith in handcuffs.

Then there’s the sequel to ‘Star Trek’, with villain Benedict Cumberbatch and another example of “a hole in the building shaped like a thing from the movie”, taking a cue from the gritty Dark Knight Rises posters and less gritty Kool Aid commercials.

Benicio Del Toro might be in Star Trek 2

Variety is reporting that Benicio Del Toro has been offered the role as the villain in the sequel to ‘Star Trek’, though it’s not clear which villain he’ll play. I know this is off the subject but Benicio had sex with Scarlett Johansson in an elevator when she was 19 and he was 37. That’s pretty bad ass. Also off the subject but why is my penis two shades darker than the rest of me. Does astroglide have some kind of self-tanner in it?

BOOTLEG STAR TREK TRAILER

By brendon November 15, 2008 @ 9:30 AM

Some dashing ne’er-do-well put up a bootleg copy of the new "Star Trek" trailer, which premiered yesterday in front of "Quantum of Solace".  At first I was thinking that kid sucks I hate him. Then I was like oh okay. Then I was like wow that dude is a perfect Spock and the new “beam me” effect is cool and this is really beautiful and that black girl is hot and LOOK IT'S SIMON PEGG. Then the hot black girl took off her top and I kinda lost track of stuff from there.

It looks like there are spotlights all around the hot black girl taking off her top, leading me to hope that maybe this is some kind of "talent show" scene where hot girls take off their clothes and then, you know, do it. It would make a lot of sense if you think about it. Otherwise casual fans like myself would leave wondering why the movie didn’t have more scenes with hot girls gettin in on.

UPDATE – much much larger copy of this file for DL on rapidshare here and megaupload here.  You will need the VLC media player to play it.



HEIDI KLUM IS NAKED

By brendon August 13, 2006 @ 9:35 PM

Supermodel Heidi Klum and husband Seal admit to having naked portraits of themselves adorning the walls of their home.   The nude pics are hidden in the couples bedroom and bathrooms to keep them hidden away and private.

"I have very nice pictures of my husband in my bathroom. We don't really have naked pictures of us all over the place but he would have the occasional one of me and I have the occasional one of him."

This seems like a solid idea.  I’m sure he’s delightful, and you’re welcome to debate his music, but Seal is not a handsome man, so any pictures that distract from his face are entirely welcome.  He looks evil.  It creeps me out.  In fact, I heard that when he goes to the zoo, all the animals start goin' crazy, like in the movies when someone is possessed by the Devil.  The monkeys start jumping around, and the dolphins won't listen and the tigers roar.  True story.
