MOVIEPASS: Star Trek Into Darkness: Was They Mystery Box Worth It?
- cenimablend:Star Trek Into Darkness is now finally open in theaters everywhere, the United States included, and depending on how careful you’ve been you’re either seeing it with minimal knowledge of the plot… or you’ve checked IMDB lately and gotten spoiled on a major plot point that director J.J. Abrams has spent many months keeping secret.
Abrams is famous for his “Mystery Box” approach to storytelling, the idea being that it’s better not to know what you’re getting before walking into a movie. And though there are surprises in Star Trek Into Darkness that you probably won’t know in advance, there are also parts of the film that Abrams went to a lot of effort to keep secret… and don’t seem to matter all that much when you know them. We’ve spent months and months speculating about what he and his team were hiding behind the mystery box, and once it was revealed.. was all that waiting worth it?
Sean and Katey don’t know themselves, but they’re trying to figure it out in our latest Great Debate, piecing through the reveals of Star Trek Into Darkness and wondering if Abrams’ secretive approach blew up in his face this time. Read their conversation by CLICKING HERE, but ONLY AFTER YOU’VE SEEN STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. Admiral, there be spoilers here.
MOVIEPASS: Brad Bird Talks Sequal To ‘The Incredibles!’
- comingsoon: Brad Bird was the driving force at Pixar behind the ever popular superhero film The Incredibles and with each announcement of a Pixar sequel, fans have always cried out in support of another “Incredibles” movie. Bird has spoken previously about doing a follow-up to the movie, but his latest comments to The Hollywood Reporter about the matter seem more promising than previous answers.
“I have been thinking about it. People think that I have not been, but I have. Because I love those characters and love that world. I am stroking my chin and scratching my head. I have many, many elements that I think would work really well in another [Incredibles] film, and if I can get ‘em to click all together, I would probably wanna do that.
“I like the idea of moving a little more quickly in films. I’m looking for ways to accelerate the pace a little bit and figure out a way to keep creative control over these movies to a level where I’m comfortable with the end result but also speed them up a bit and make more of them. I have many different films I wanna make. It’s like a big airplane hangar and I have different projects on the floor; half-assembled in my brain. I’m interested in all of them. You kind of have to move on the ones people are willing to pay for and the ones you’re most excited about.”
Bird also spoke about being approached for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, which he turned down.
“They did come to me. But the problem was, the schedule they had in mind made it impossible to do…unless I dropped Tomorrowland. And I was just really deeply into this film at that point. It’s easy to say, “Just put it on hold.” But you’re moving now; you don’t know if you’re going to be able to move later. Maybe it’s true of filmmakers like Cameron or Spielberg, but I have to act on momentum. We had reached a critical mass where it would’ve thrown the furniture around from the train stopping. I really want to see this movie. I love the Star Wars films, and I can’t wait to see what J.J. does, but it meant I’d have to shut down one dream to participate in another. I feel like [with Tomorrowland] we’re making something that’s really special and unique.”

Whether Lars von Trier would return to Cannes with NYMPHOMANIAC has been the subject of speculations ever since the project was announced.

MOVIEPASS: Michael Bay’s Sci-Fi Indie ‘Almanac’ Adds Cast To It’s Time Machine
- cenimablend: Even though Dean Israelite is the director of the upcoming sci-fi drama Almanac, it’s still a Platinum Dunes feature produced by Michael Bay, and that immediately makes it a “Michael Bay movie” to anyone listening. Just like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, really. It’s especially easy to do it in this situation, since it’s Israelite’s first feature. Whether it takes the heat off of him if the film fails, or makes him a star if it succeeds, Bay’s name is still what has made this film interesting.
Well now it’s got a couple of leads to its credit, according to The Hollywood Reporter, though the independent nature of the film means these performers are of the up-and-coming variety. Jonny Weston and Sofia Black-D’Elia are both in negotiations to star in Almanac, which was written by newcomers Andrew Star and Jason Pagan.
Details are sketchy on Almanac, beyond the central concept of it being a found footage film that centers on the creation of a time machine, and someone eventually uses an almanac to their advantage, which we’ve already made the obvious comparisons to Back to the Future II.
