The geniuses behind Star Trek Into Darkness mashed up clips from the sequel in a new music video set to the hit song “Beam Me Up” by Cazzette. The sequel, starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, has the Internet buzzing in anticipation as it rolls out nationwide this weekend.
The PR blitz ahead of the release of Star Trek Into The Darkness means one thing: The bromance of Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. The two stars are incredibly adorable around each other, showing just how great friends they are at press junkets and interviews. If only it was something more… But at least you can enjoy all their moments together over the past few weeks.
Zoe Saldana’s too beautiful to be believed. Zoe Saldana’s starring in a sure-to-be blockbuster (Star Trek Into The Darkness, opening this Friday). Zoe Saldana’s red carpet game is next level amazing. We hate this woman! Kidding. But in honor of her sick style, we’ve ranked her ten hottest ensembles of the year.
You have no idea how long we’ve been waiting for the new Star Trek movie. And now we’re one step closer because the teaser trailer is out and it is all sorts of boss. All the usual suspects are in there reprising their roles: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg and John Cho. New additions include Alice Eve and one totally baller Benedict Cumberbatch. Sherlock fans will know why we’re so stoked. And he’s the bad guy, which is even cooler. The trailer starts with his gravelly voice threatening, “You think your world is safe. It is an illusion. A comforting lie told to protect you. Enjoy these final moments of peace. For I have returned to have my vengeance.” And then everything explodes in the coolest way. Of course there’s the obligatory close-up shot of Pine’s face with his baby blues looking intent. Makes us melt every single time. There’s also one clip of Alice screaming in abject terror, so you know Cumberbatch is bringing it. The movies’s only releasing next year in May, which is a huge bummer, but if they keep serving slices of trailer goodness, we won’t complain. Not too much, at least.
As weekend hit the 65th annual Cannes Film Festival, it seems like the gals and the guys took very different approached to the dress code. Starlets like Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Cheryl Cole stepped out in gorgeous floor-sweeping gowns, and A-list actresses like Salma Hayek and Diane Kruger hit the red carpet in bosom-bearing low cut couture that left photographers screaming for more. The guys, on the other hand, seemed to take significantly less care on their appearance. Shia LaBeouf looked scruffy with a half-beard and his long unruly mane slicked back, while Gerard Butler also shared the five-o’clock-five-days-later shadow. But the king of the WTF fashion this weekend was Tom Hardy, who took grizzly to new heights with greasy-looking hair, unabomber beard, and a thousand-yard-stare that makes us wonder if he swam the Atlantic to attend the festival.

The 65th annual Cannes Film festival kicked off in high style today, as celebs from all around the world descended to the coastal town with their finest clothes and accessories. Eva Longoria and Diane Kruger both made big entrances in huge Cinderella gowns with trains that could stretch all the way to Paris! Jessica Chastain’s dress was a little more streamlined, but definitely drew attention with a plunging neckline. The dudes cleaned up pretty nicely as well, with action stars Bruce Willis and Chris Pine rockin’ the tuxes, but Sacha Baron Cohen (predictably) stole the show when he rode down the red carpet in full Dictator regalia while on the back of a camel. Sure it’s pretty in-your-face, but at least it’s better than drowning Elisabetta Canalis for publicity, right? We’ll go with yes. Check out more incredible styles in the gallery below!

The ads for This Means War don’t really do it any favors, we know. Yes, it is the silly action-rom-com it appears to be. And yes, it does feature the problematic premise that CIA guys can totally stalk women for fun. And some of Chelsea Handler’s lines are kind of cheesy. BUT they actually make you laugh in the context of the movie. Also, after spending five minutes with Tom Hardy’s character, you will not want him ever, ever to leave the screen again in the entire future of all film. And you will want to have Reese Witherspoon’s life and Chris Pine’s apartment for your very own. Part of the credit for the surprising likability of this McG movie goes to the stars, of course. And another part goes to costume designer Sophie De Rakoff, who’s designed the costumes for a number of Reese’s other movies, including a little one you may have heard of called Legally Blonde.
“Reese doesn’t ask for me, that’s not what she does,” De Rakoff explained to us. “People know that we have a relationship and that we work well together, and she looks good when I work with her, so that if the right movie comes along, then they’ll bring me in.”
Lookit Reese Witherspoon getting edgy in Louis Vuitton. As edgy as Reese can get, that is. The breezy blonde can’t help but look adorable all the time, but full marks for adding chic cred with this sparkly, textured, emerald-green number worn at the U.K. premiere of her new film This Means War. That bright smile makes her look as delicious as a peanut butter cup! Speaking of delicious — check out her co-stars Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. Because some people get to wear fabulous dresses and date hot men (onscreen) for a living. No offense,
Mr. Reese Jim Toth, but your wife is livin’ it large. Although she’s tiny. Seriously, look at her next to Tom and Chris. She looks minuscule. And makes us want to sing Pocketful of Sunshine or something.

Ah Hollywood: you give with one hand, take with the other. Reportedly Warner Bros is looking at Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield or James McAvoy for Akira‘s male lead Tetsuo. For the futuristic sci-fi film’s co-star Kaneda, scripts have been sent to Garrett Hedlund, Michael Fassbender, Chris Pine, Justin Timberlake and Joaquin Phoenix. The film is due out in 2013, and will be reportedly split into two parts. Given the amount of sweet biker gang moves and writhing protoplasm in the 1988 animated version of Akira, you’d think this movie would be primed for a mega-success. But since this is Hollywood, you know can’t do something great without messing it up in some profound way.
The most conspicuous theme in the announced casting choices (besides beautiful dudes with a layer of stuble) is the apparent lack of Asian or Asian-American actors in the Akira remake so far, a choice which seems pretty odd considering how extremely Japanese the original story is. The movie is based off a Japanese manga first published in 1982, and takes place in a futuristic Neo-Tokyo in 2019. However, it looks like the new version is set in New Manhattan and, despite keeping the Japanese names, doesn’t seem too concerned with actually having Japanese characters. If you recall, similar issues came up around the casting of white actors in The Last Airbender and Prince Of Persia last year. Call us crazy, but we’re pretty sure there are plenty of super hot Asian-Americans actors who are dying for roles like these. No offense, Pattinson; you know we love you in our way.

That’s a trick question! They are both as classy as fine wine served out of a box, or a string quartet conducted by Coco. Following an excruciatingly personal interview with Howard Stern this morning about his separation from wife Courteney Cox Arquette, David Arquette’s one-night stand Jasmine Waltz (well, okay, maybe two nights) is helping him down the slippery slope to public self-destruction with her long list of Hollywood exes. In addition to the apologetic Arquette, Waltz has dated, in ascending order of lameness, Chris Pine, Jess McCartney, Rod Stewart’s son Sean, and Ryan Seacrest. Normally we’d give a pass to anyone whose had their sheets ruined by Seacrest’s spray-tan sweat, but our allegiance to Monica…um, we mean Courteney runs too deep.
Not only has she taken most of the B-List for a test-drive, but reportedly Waltz also punched Lindsay Lohan this summer while working at nightclub Voyeur. Just to be clear: Waltz was on the clock when she may or may not have decked LiLo, which she denies happened. “All I have to say is that disturbed little train wreck is delusional,”, Jasmine claimed at the time, as only another train wreck can. So is Waltz a villain, or just a celebrity gold digger that dug on the wrong man? Did David Arquette really not know all of this was going to blow up in his face? So many questions remain, though the question “Why exactly did Courteney leave?” seems pretty much been answered.
