INTO DARKNESS! The strangely-titled “Star Trek” sequel, “Star Trek Into Darkness” gets officially synopsized. Via Badass Digest:
In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes Star Trek Into Darkness.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.
With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
ON MESSED UP TONY! Splash Page reports on Kevin Feige’s update on the state of Stark in “Iron Man 3”:
“By the end of ’Avengers,’ when a portal is opened up in Manhattan and he’s met Thor and The Hulk and the Chitauri are coming down on him, he realizes that he doesn’t know everything; we think that has had an effect on his psyche, and then his world is blown out from underneath him.”
X-TERMINATION Looks like Nightcrawler is back and tangling with Logan as “Worlds Collide” in this new Marvel teaser.
GOODBYE, AMC! Hey remember when AMC constantly reminded DISH customers that their favorite shows were no longer available because of business-folk-wrangling? Well, it could happen again. This time with FIOS. From Deadline:
Verizon says AMC is simply trying to “scare” FiOS customers. The phone company adds that it’s “unfortunate that [AMC] has decided to unnecessarily publicize these discussions, but not surprising as they have a history of using their viewers as pawns in their negotiations with distributors.”
NEW iMACS! According to MacRumors, the new Apple desktop could go on sale today? This message from Apple to retailers is a pretty big clue:
BAD. ASS. BoingBoing unleashed this video of a Cheetah running in slow motion.
