Thursday, October 4th, 2012

For J.J. Abrams, the relationship between human beings and machines is something that fascinates him.

Abrams’ newest show, Revolution, shows what happens when mankind is involuntarily disconnected from modern technology. “When the power goes out, the structure of society would shift enormously,” he said. “The people who are in control are more likely to fall by the wayside and not know how to handle anything. The have-nots will know how to live in that world and will become the most powerful.”

Clarke: Am I In The Movie?

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Noel Clarke, who portrays an unnamed character in Star Trek Into Darkness, is not at all sure that his character will make the final cut of the movie.

If cut, it wouldn’t be the first time for the actor, who was cut from Ghost Rider 2. “Probably better off with [being cut] that one to be honest,” Clarke said.

“As far as I’m aware [I'm in the film],” Clarke told a BBC Breakfast interviewer recently.

Clarke went on to talk about his time working on the Star Trek sequel. “I had a great time filming it,” he said. “I went in and did my job to the best of my ability and hopefully J.J. and the execs were happy and hopefully I’ll make the final cut of the movie.”
