“Star Trek 2” video shows Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch fighting

If you thought those leaked “Star Trek 2” pictures of Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch fighting were cool, just wait until you see this video.

For whatever reason, it seems like Cumberbatch’s villain and Quinto’s Spock are not big fans of one another. The two duke it out pretty intensely in the video below, and it seems as though this showdown is one of the major action set pieces in the movie. The latest rumor regarding Cumberbatch’s character is spoiler alert that he’s playing Spock’s half-brother Sybock from “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.” There’s no official confirmation of that being Cumberbatch’s role, but it would explain all the bad blood between the two men during this fight.

When IFC caught up with Quinto recently at the Spirit Awards, he explained that he and Cumberbatch had been rehearsing that scene for five days. The cameras weren’t rolling during that time, so all you’re seeing in the above video is the fight’s choreography being practiced, but it looks badass all the same.

That being said, someone is going to get in some big trouble for leaking this video onto the Internet. If director J.J. Abrams was peeved about the pictures being put online, we can only imagine what he thinks of this.

“The picture leaking did not go over so well. They’re go to great lengths to preserve security,” Quinto said.

“Star Trek 2” is due out in theaters on May 17, 2013. It also stars Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho and Alice Eve.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney To Host Spirit Awards

The Spirit Awards Air February 25 LIVE on IFC.

Posted by on

The 2017 Spirit Awards have finally found their frontmen: Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. And it’s no wonder. Just marvel in their splendid chemistry back when they appeared on Comedy Bang! Bang!:

The pair are prolific within the performing arts community: television (Kroll in The League and The Kroll Show, Mulaney as a writer of IFC’s own Documentary Now!), theater (including Broadway’s current Oh Hello Show), and stand-up comedy. In fact, it’s entirely possible that emceeing an awards show is one of the few remaining line items on their professional bucket lists.

It’s important to caveat this announcement, however. Unlike the bigger and more ubiquitously known awards shows, the Spirit Awards are not, well…boring. (We’re talking to you, Oscar.)

They’re funny. They’re honest. They have quality to match the red-carpet fanfare. And that’s alarmingly special. Last year’s show included some legitimately historic moments, like when transgender actress Mya Taylor won best supporting female, or Kate McKinnon’s hilarious and timely parody of Carol. See more highlights here to get the flavor of the Spirit Awards and read all about Film Independent to dig deeper.

The 2017 Spirit Awards air live February 25 at 5P ET exclusively on IFC.

Xmas Miracles You’ll See At Joe’s Pub

Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special Premieres December 21 at 10P on IFC.

Posted by on

It’s just so tempting to bah-humbug the holiday season. And while there’s much we can’t wait to put behind us, one thing left to look forward to with pure and wide-eyed joy is Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special, starring Tony Hale. It’s a celebration in the true spirit of those splendid TV specials from the ’70s and ’80s, complete with special guests, musical numbers, awkward segues and an (intentionally) wafer-thin narrative through line.

As if you need more convincing, here are a few juicy nuggets to get excited for…

Tony Hale plying the captive audience with hot chocolate (and it working).

Bridget Everett dressed like an ornament…

and in a state of nearly constant wardrobe malfunction.

Not a Slanket. There’s a meaningful difference.

Lisa Loeb creeping on Kurt Vile.

and it pretty much going as expected.

Bottom line: the miracles abound. Grinches, Scrooges, and Tiny Tims alike will find their Holiday joy. And it’ll be awkward–in the most wonderful kind of way.

Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special premieres Wednesday December 21 at 10p on IFC
