It's hard to say whether people are more excited to finally see "Star Trek Into Darkness" or to just be done anticipating it. It seems like we've been dying to see this one for forever, right?

There are only a handful of people in Hollywood that have the inside scoop on "Interstellar," the upcoming science fiction film from Christopher Nolan, and one of those people happens to be on a press tour right now promoting a movie.
MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Matthew McConaughey, the man tapped to star in the time travel movie, and he kept a pretty tight lid on what's going on with "Interstellar."
He couldn't even really discuss how he came to join the project for the sake of keeping company secrets. "Oh, I can tell you a little bit, but even that is sort of under lock and key. It really is," McConaughey said.
When filming "Jack Reacher," Tom Cruise presented director Christopher McQuarrie with a unique problem. Most actors do not do their own stunt driving and therefore require stand-ins and crafty camera work to create the illusion that they do.
As we see in this exclusive featurette from the Best Buy edition of the "Jack Reacher" Blu-ray, Cruise required the opposite. Since the actor would be doing his own stunts, McQuarrie needed to create shots that would show off his actor behind the wheel.
The resulting chase sequence ended up looking like something we don't see a lot in movie anymore, where the shot hammers home the realness of the situation.
Learn all about it in the video above, and look for "Jack Reacher" on Blu-ray and DVD on May 7 and for digital download now!
If you're not already on board with Guillermo del Toro's new movie "Pacific Rim," then Warner Bros. is looking to enlist you. The studio released a new promotional image on Twitter that's styled as a recruitment flier for the Pan Pacific Defense, better known as the PPDC.
If you go to the PPDC website, you'll find a number of the viral "Pacific Rim" videos and blueprints for the various Jaegers that have been released up until this point. It's a cute touch, and hopefully Warner Bros. keeps rolling out more nontraditional teasers for GDT's new movie in the months leading up to its July 12 release.

There was some possibly disappointing news for fans of Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" movie adaptations coming from the author himself at the Los Angeles Festival of Books on April 20 (via Ender's Ansible). First, Card says hardcore Ender-heads should not go into the movie expecting a super-faithful interpretation of the best-selling book, saying he actually didn't want it to be. He said:
It won’t be identical to the book. So if you go there expecting that please don’t be angry that it’s not just like the book. It can’t be. I don’t want it to be. You don’t want it to be, ok? You want it to be a good movie which the book would not have been. So we’ll all find out whether they’re successful or not, but I know everyone involved in this movie is doing their very best they can to do this.

You can add another title to the growing list of video game adaptations in the works. Variety is reporting that the producer of the animated movie "Escape from Planet Earth" is developing an animated "Ratchet & Clank" film based on the platformer from Insomniac Games for release in early 2015.
While news of yet another video game movie is not earth-shattering, the "Ratchet & Clank" film is falling more in-line with what we've seen from the recent wave of film adaptations. As Variety reported, TJ Fixman is writing the script for "Ratchet & Clank," a fan-pleasing choice considering that he's a senior writer at Insomniac. What made the series so popular in the first place was, obviously, the gameplay, but also the sense of humor that both characters had.
For the four of you who are worried about the potential fate of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's "Fast and Furious" character Luke Hobbs, you can now breathe easy. We have some good news for you. The Rock ain't going anywhere.
Collider caught up with "Fast and Furious" producer Neal Moritz to talk about all the things that are both furious and fast, including the already-planned seventh installment in the series to be directed by James Wan. That movie is due out next summer, and the Rock has a busy schedule ahead of him, especially with Brett Ratner's "Hercules," so it stands to reason that even if Hobbs survived "Fast and Furious 6," he might not show for "7."
But Moretz told Collider that Johnson will return as the federal agent turned ally. "[Fast & Furious 7] is a new chapter, but The Rock will be involved as well," he said.

The first clip from "Star Trek Into Darkness" debuted today over at AOL, and the bottom line is that even at a little over a minute long, the preview manages to be highly "Star Trek"-y in an awesome kind of way.
The basic set-up for the clip should be familiar to anyone who was able to catch the extended preview before "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" last year. Kirk and Bones just narrowly escaped that cliff jump you've seen one million times in various trailers and previews.
But that leaves Spock squarely situated in a highly active volcano and Kirk with one hell of a decision to make.
Check out the full clip from "Star Trek Into Darkness" above!
In the early days of Disney animated features, the creators would film somewhat elaborate versions of the image in real life for animators to use later. The image above is one of those tests next to the finished product.
