Some great headlines and rumors to discuss on this week’s episode of the GeekScholars Movie News podcast!
The show kicks off with the hosts discussing the large amount of casting currently underway for the film adaptation of the Broadway musical, Into the Woods. Specifically, it sounds like Meryl Streep, Johnny Deep, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, Allison Janney, and Anna Kendrick may all be joining the fairy tale adventure. Also, two movies about chefs are squaring off—Chef starring Jon Favreau, Robert Downey, Jr., and Scarlett Johansson, and a rival picture of the same name starring Bradley Cooper and Michelle Williams.
From there, the crew plays ‘Never Tell Me the Odds’, where they predict the probability of lots of film-related rumors! See which ones after the jump! [click to continue…]
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.

Finally! Some new footage – and it is spectacular!
Lots of new footage here – and not just of Alice Eve’s Dr. Carol Marcus in her underwear!
Even with its fast-paced action and quips, this new Star Trek Into Darkness teaser still doesn’t reveal all that much about the movie – but it does make skipping it seem like not an option.
If you’re looking for a fresh way to dig into the upcoming Star Trek Into Darknes (and you know you are), then you might want to check out a new app based on the movie. Available now from the app store and Google Play, the app will give you access to all kinds of Trek content – as well as the opportunity to take part in missions and win valuable prizes.
There’s a good deal more, so follow the jump to get all the details.
