Besides the second coming of Star Wars, there’s another major geek event on the horizon: Interstellar. I know, it’s not a remake of another movie, video game or TV show, but it is the next movie Christopher Nolan is making post-Batman, and we’re dying to see what he’ll come up with next.
We try not to pay attention to rumors here at TG, there’s a lot of them out there, and they’re usually nonsense. But in the age of the internet, it is indeed amazing how fast a rumor can get out there and be assumed as fact.
We didn’t have the term “show runner” back in the day, but Rod Serling was absolutely one of the first.

JJ Abrams, who we all know as the current mastermind behind Star Trek and Lost, recently mentioned to Howard Stern that he has a 3D printer in his office, and considering you can practically make anything short of a real human being with a 3D printer, it seems like it would be really cool to have one.
While we’re not exactly that thrilled about how a movie’s box office performance has become a big horse race with the public, it’s often fun to track how a movie does when it finally hits the theaters.

So we know the next Star Wars movie is supposed to be top, top secret, that’s a given. But some people involved in the next film just can’t seem to help themselves, and quite a few people like Carrie Fisher also have diplomatic immunity.
Star Trek Into Darkness is now two weeks away from hitting theaters, and along with Iron Man 3 it should help make this summer a rather memorable blockbuster season.
As much as we’d love to know everything there is to know about the new Star Wars movie, there may not be all that much official information right now.
We all know by now that the original Star Wars trio of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher are returning to the next movie in the series, which is currently due for release in 2015.
We’re just about three weeks away from Star Trek Into Darkness, and soon the public will be making the final decision whether it was worth the wait or not.
We’re big fans of time travel stories here on TG, and Stephen King wrote one titled "11/22/63," the fateful day when Kennedy was killed.
Several days ago, the reviews finally got out in the geek-o-sphere for the next Star Trek movie, and so far they’re pretty good.
Dynamos like JJ Abrams are practically their own industries, constantly churning out hit movies and TV shows, and his workload’s about to get a lot heavier taking on the Star Wars universe.
