Unfortunately, due to my recent Eye Surgery and Paramount Pictures screening shenanigans (I raise my fist and cry fowl, FOWL!) it will probably be a few weeks before I can experience Trek. For those of you lucky enough to have peepers, see Star Trek: Into Darkness as it was meant to be seen on a real 7 or 10 story tall iMax Screen, not those FakeMax’s in the malls.
The DMV is lucky enough to have several real iMax theaters where you can see it. Paramount’s Star Trek Into Darkness opens at the Airbus IMAX Theater at the Steven F.Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va., today, May 15, and in IMAX 3-D at the Samuel C. Johnson IMAX Theater at the National Museum of Natural History May 31. Tickets to see the film at the Hazy Center are on sale at www.si.edu/imax.
On Monday, May 20th, Fox is premiering a new half-hour comedy called The Goodwin Games. It’s a series with an unusual premise – three estranged siblings return home for their father’s funeral and learn that, somehow, since they were last there, he amassed a fortune of $23 million – which he plans to leave to one of them. The catch is that they have to win a series of games to claim the prize! While it’s not obvious to them, there’s another reason for The Goodwin Games – to bring this trio of wildly different siblings back into each other’s lives and make them a family again.
In the show, which also stars Becki Newton (Ugly Betty) and T.J. Miller (Cloverfield), Scott Foley stars as Henry, the one success of the group – a respected, talented surgeon who is also tightly would and incredibly anal. Foley recently took a few minutes from his busy schedule To speak with a group of journalists/bloggers about the show.
Dexter Morgan is about to leave us. When Dexter (Showtime, Sundays, 9/8C) returns on June 30th, it is the beginning of the end –but for whom will it be worse – Dexter or Deb? Follow the jump to watch the official Season 8 trailer and decide for yourself.
Personally, I think revealing the name of the Doctor would be a big mistake, being kinda counterintuitive to name of the series. On the other hand, if Clara was to learn the name and never actually say it out loud on the show – not unlike River Song (who appears in this episode) – that could work. too.
Doctor Who’s Seventh Season finale runs Saturday at 8/7C on BBC America. For two very different but equally delicious teasers – one from BBCA and one from the mothership, the BBC, follow the jump.
