Big Movie News! JJ Abrams to direct Star Trek, James Cameron says Jesus is fake, and JLA: The Movie

For some strange reason or other, today I found out that this blog has a total of 16 (!) hits a couple of days back, and none of them came from me. So apparently at least someone must be reading it. Although I hope it’s more than one person because if it is, then I have to apologise to what must be a most disappointed blog-stalker.

Anyways. To those of you who do read it, you’re probably in the geek community, so you’ll be pleased to know that there was a crap load of movie news over the past couple of days that didn’t involve the Oscars. Most of them involves women in tights/female nudity of some sort, so here goes the movie roundup.

1) Star Trek is still alive, or so says JJ Abrams, who will be directing Star Trek XI. According to, “The reports say that the deal with Abrams was officially signed just last Friday. Also part of the rumor mill for this film is that Matt Damon was supposedly going to play Captain Kirk, but that rumor has since been debunked and just about every other male actor has been rumored to be in the talks for either Kirk or Spock as well.” My suggestion for Captain Kirk? Steve Carrell. Now that would be awesome.

2) James Cameron, the director of such fantasies such as Titanic, plans to debunk Christianity is his next documentary. According to Time, this documentary will see Cameron as producer, with director Simcha Jacobovici examining the claim “that Jesus wasn’t resurrected –the cornerstone of Christian faith– and that his burial cave was discovered near Jerusalem. And, get this, Jesus sired a son with Mary Magdelene.” Sounds like a publicity generating documentary that won’t have much conclusive evidence. Watch the trailer and have your fill.

3) Justice League of America: The Movie. Dude. Wonder. Woman. Batman. Superman. AWESSSOOMMME!

4) Hostel Part 2 movie poster that was banned. I’m not a particularly big fan of this hack-n-slash film, but I do like the movie poster. Gruesome and sexist. FYI, the storyline for the sequel involves three women who stumble upon the Slovakian hostel. One of the women is Bijou Philips (pictured below).


5) Random screen cap from Blades of Glory where Jenna Fischer (the secretary from the US version of The Office) plays a prostitute. Always had a thing for Jenna. She’s hot. So there.
