“Star Trek Into Darkness”: Alice Eve and Simon Pegg play rumor control


Posted by on

Simon Pegg and Alice Eve have now joined in on the fun game of misleading fans looking to spoil “Star Trek Into Darkness.” During recent interviews at the BAFTAs, both made statements contrary to what is being popularly reported.

First up is Pegg. He spoke with Absolute Radio about the upcoming flick, and explained what he thinks of Abrams getting to direct “Star Wars: Episode VII” as well. The confusion came when Pegg was asked who he thinks should direct “Star Trek 3” instead of Abrams, since he will likely be tied up in “Star Wars.”

“J.J.’s the perfect choice for that job, and I just hope he doesn’t forget us Trekkies in the corner,” Pegg said. “He will do ‘Star Trek.'”

After people took that as confirmation, Pegg had to step up and clarify his statement, tweeting, ” Just to be clear, contrary to reports in the press, I have no idea whether or not JJ will helm Star Trek 3.” Nice rumor control there.

Meanwhile, Eve spun the Benedict Cumberbatch-as-Khan rumors back to square one when she told a BAFTAs reporter, “He’s not playing Khan.” Truth or lie? Either way, it seems like she is just trying to keep fans guessing until “Star Trek Into Darkness” comes out.

“Star Trek Into Darkness” is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho, Eve, Cumberbatch and Bruce Greenwood. The film is slated to hit theaters on May 17 in IMAX and 3D. It’s been revealed that over 40 minutes of “Star Trek Into Darkness” will be shown in IMAX.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
