Listen To J.J. Abrams Talk Star Trek And Everything Else With Howard Stern
With Star Trek Into Darkness now playing all around the world and making its midnight debut last night in domestic theaters, J.J. Abrams has been keeping very busy. In addition to balancing all of his television projects and dealing with pre-production details on upcoming movies the filmmaker has been traveling around the world...
Star Trek Into Darkness: Was The Mystery Box Worth It?
Abrams is famous for his "Mystery Box" approach to storytelling, the idea being that it's better not to know what you're getting before walking into a movie. And though there are surprises in Star Trek Into Darkness that you probably won't know in advance, there are also parts of the film that Abrams went to a lot of effort to keep secret… and don't seem to matter all that much when you know them
To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Star Trek Into Darkness Ticket
Unbelievably, J.J. Abrams' first Star Trek opened before Avatar, in a time when not every summer blockbuster was expected to come out in 3D, and before movies were put through the post-conversion wringer to cash in.

By the time this year's Star Trek Into Darkness came along, John Cho says he'd become more comfortable stepping into Sulu's shoes-- but with a role that mostly has him on the bridge of the Enterprise and even occasionally taking over the captain's chair, there was a whole new set of challenges. Like, how do you pretend you're under fire when you're sitting on a set?

Star Trek Into Darkness 'Spoiled' By Conan O'Brien
The Enterprise crashes on Tattooine? Spock dies?? Kirk is gay?!? These are Earth-shattering revelations … and they are all bogus. Not as bogus as the blatant reveal dropped on CBS Sunday Morning (and do avoid Google searching for the clip if you don’t want to peek in J.J. Abrams’ vaunted “Mystery Box” before seeing Into Darkness later this week).
