It's a geek rivalry that has gone back generations. "Star Wars" or "Star Trek"? Even in this day and age, the question can still divide a crowd, even one a seemingly one-sided as the folks that showed up to the "Star Trek Into Darkness" Blu-ray event.

MTV News headed out to the red carpet to see which franchise would come out on top when pitted against each other. Cast members from "Star Trek Into Darkness" get to decide who would come out on top in a fight. Ewoks or Klingons? Vader of Khan?

As we get closer and closer to the finale of "Breaking Bad," more and more people are paying homage to the series that has entertained us for five unbelievably tense seasons.

Last night on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," the talk show host delivered his respectful and accurate parody of the series, stepping into the shoes of Walter White.

The premise of the 12-minute parody is that Fallon only has six months to live... as the host of "Late Night" before he moves over to "The Tonight Show." To make the most of his remaining months, he begins to sell his own higher grade of jokes the desperate junkies.

The video is full of surprises and hilarious cameos and is definitely worth checking out for any diehard "Breaking Bad" fan.


Jurassic World

Now that we know when and under what title a fourth "Jurassic Park" movie will appear — "Jurassic World" opens in June 2015 — we're free to speculate about more specific issues, like what the heck the thing will actually be about.

Today, a video that some are claiming is a pitch reel for "Jurassic World" has surfaced online, causing many to speculate that the upcoming sequel will finally answer the fan questions about whether the flying creatures from the prehistoric island could fly to the main land.

Check out the reel and read more about the theories on it after the jump!




The latest big-screen adaptation of "Frankenstein" is turning into a bit of a "Harry Potter" and "Downton Abbey" mash-up. Former "Abbey" star Jessica Brown Findlay has just been confirmed to star in the flick alongside Daniel Radcliffe. Variety broke the news on Wednesday.

At this January's Sundance Film Festival, those heading to the fest with a close eye on the schedule noted one movie in particular that they would have to check out in Park City, Utah because there may not be a chance to ever see it again.

"Escape From Tomorrow," a horror fantsy shot guerilla-style in Disneyland and Disney World, might have never seen the light of day outside Sundance. It was simply too twisted and involved way too much of the beloved family vacation destinations to ever avoid the myriad of lawsuits that would keep a film from seeing distribution.

Well, after reportedly editing the movie only slightly, director Randy Moore's bizarre creation will get a limited release in theaters and on VOD on October 11, and there's now a trailer (via The Film Stage) for you to preview the madness.



The summer of 2015 gets more crowded with blockbusters every day. This past week, we added Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man" and confirmed "Jurassic World" for the tentpole season less than two years from now, but one movie expected to bow then is now out of the race.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" was expected to set sail in July 2015, but now Disney is pumping the brakes.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the problem lies in the script by Jeff Nathanson, but there reportedly is an outline for the story that everyone, including producer Jerry Bruckheimer and "Kon-Tiki" directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, really love.

On September 10th, 1993, the world was introduced to "The X-Files" and a pair of alien-chasing FBI agents, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. For nine conspiracy-filled TV seasons (and two feature films) they fought to uncover The Truth about the existence of extra-terrestrials, along the way becoming iconic characters in pop culture.

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of "The X-Files," we present an update on some of its major players.



Game of Thrones

Like Snow Patrol and Coldplay before them, Sigur Ros will be taking a trip to Westeros next season. According to Entertainment Weekly, the indie band is the next music act to make a guest starring appearance on HBO's "Game of Thrones." confirmed that Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are all currently filming scenes for the upcoming fourth season in Croatia.

The site also made mention of the fact that the showrunners of "Game of Thrones" would often listen to the sounds of the Iceland art-pop band while filming in their native country.

"Game of Thrones" is expected to return to HBO in the spring, and it will probably kill off a couple of your favorite characters.



For her follow-up to the first "Twilight" movie, director Catherine Hardwicke didn't stray too far from the paranormal romance genre with "Red Riding Hood." Since that movie was — let's call it — less than successful, it comes as no surprising that Hardwicke is going in a different direction for her next movie. But she's hanging onto the love triangle.

"Plush," her new film starring Emily Browning and "Twilight" baddie Cam Gigandet, just debuted its first trailer, giving us a look at Hardwicke's twisted take on the world of rock and roll.

In the film, which hits theaters this week and debuts on DVD next month, Browning plays a rocker that faces the challenges of producing another hit. Things get even more complicated when she hires a sexy new guitarist and begins to get mysterious packages from an apparently obsessed fan.

Check out the trailer after the jump!
