"Star Trek Into Darkness" doesn't hit theaters until next spring and Paramount has only just begun revealing imagery and trailers from the movie, but director J.J. Abrams is already starting to drop hints about the film's ending and the villain John Harrison as played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

9-Minute 'Star Trek Into Darkness' IMAX Preview Makes Us Ready To Be Beamed Up Again

Starting this weekend, in select IMAX screens across the country, there will be a special, nine-minute preview of May's hotly anticipated sci-fi sequel "Star Trek Into Darkness," in a marketing maneuver similar to last Christmas' "The Dark Knight Rises" prologue, which was attached to IMAX prints of "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol." Last week's teaser of the trailer (or whatever that was) was purposefully elliptical, showing only visual effects-y glimpses of the scenarios that crew of the Starship Enterprise (including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and Zoe Saldana) will face this time around. And while these opening nine minutes aren't exactly revelatory, they do give a good idea of what will be in store for audiences this summer. And based on the preview, we are very, very excited.

Another day, another "Star Wars: Episode 7" nugget. Word around the sequel has been ranging from speculation to hard news (the latest being that Michael Arndt will be writing the screenplay, and that the movie is now in pre-production). But the biggest question facing fans right now is who is going to direct the next installment. Matthew Vaughn has been rumored, while Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino and Zack Snyder all took themselves out of the running. Now, a couple more fan favorite helmers have weighed in on the prospect of taking on the universe created by George Lucas.

Well, no matter where you stand on the prospect of "Star Wars: Episode 7," you have to admit this is at least a step in the right direction. The studio has found an Oscar winner to pen the treatment and possibly the screenplay for the upcoming sequel, and nerds and indie-cinema heads alike will approve.

As we continue to patiently wait for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" to get a release date and a marketing campaign from Warner Bros., it seems even the filmmaker himself is getting a bit antsy, and is lining up his first small-screen gig in nearly a decade.

As ever, the CIA-like secrecy around J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot company has proved remarkably resilient against leaks during, and after, production of "Star Trek 2." We can be pretty sure that it'll involve spaceships. We know that most of the original cast, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, and Bruce Greenwood, are returning. We know they've been joined by some new additions, including Alice Eve, Noel Clarke, Peter Weller and Benedict Cumberbatch, as a villain who may be Khan, or may be original series character Gary Mitchell. Beyond that, Abrams has been keeping things as close to the chest as ever.

It's an interesting time for animation at Paramount. For many years they were the sole distributor of DreamWorks Animation's animated product. After this fall's "Rise of the Guardians" though, that will no longer be the case, leaving DreamWorks to fend for itself (the studio is still figuring out what it's going to do but it's looking like Sony will probably distribute, starting with Chris Sanders' caveman romp "The Croods") and Paramount to look for fresh animated product, following its Best Animated Feature win for last year's "Rango." Well, the studio is releasing more details about its next phase of animation. Oh, and DreamWorks released a new photo from its movie about an F-1 racing snail. Whew.

Way back in 2008, J.J. Abrams teamed up with Universal to produce an earthquake movie -- not a remake of the 1974 Charlton Heston flick -- and tasked the original "The Omen" writer David Seltzer to pen the script. And then....that was pretty much the last we heard of it. But now a new writer is on board and it's not exactly the most obvious name you would think of for a blockbuster.

Paramount has had a rough few weeks, with Sacha Baron Cohen’s “The Dictator” underperforming and their now tentpole-less summer after deciding to push back “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” by nine months. Fortunately for them, they’re still very much in the J.J. Abrams business.

J.J. Abrams just doesn't do conventional does he? The writer-director unveiled an early look at a Klingon from his upcoming "Star Trek" sequel during this past weekend's MTV Movie Awards but, rather than putting it on the MTV website or premiering it in footage during the show, Abrams decided to purposefully leave it on a television in the background during a skit.
