J.J. Abrams stopped by Conan this week to promote his new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. He also wanted to clear the air about a scene from the film that's creating controversy for briefly showing Alice Eve in her underwear. To settle the score, he brought a delete scene from the film that shows villain Benedict Cumberbatch shirtless in the shower. It's a quick look, but still pretty entertaining. Check it out:
Star Trek Into Darkness comes out this week, four years after J.J. Abrams rebooted the franchise with stars Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine. This time, there's a new story and a new villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch, but is the sequel worth seeing in the theater? Watch our video review to find out!
Star Trek Into Darkness is J.J. Abrams's second installment of the famous franchise he rebooted in 2009, and the success of the first film is both a blessing and a curse for the sequel. It has a lot to live up to, but this isn't Abrams's first time at the sci-fi rodeo; he delivers a fantastic film that's both a satisfying sequel and a standalone movie (no need to rewatch the first one or even really be familiar with the Star Trek universe). The awe-inspiring visuals are enough to make a fun Summer movie, but when you factor in the engaging story and strong performances of the cast, Star Trek Into Darkness adds up to a can't-miss movie.
Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are back as Captain Kirk and Spock, along with the rest of the Starship Enterprise, like Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Scotty (Simon Pegg), and Sulu (John Cho), all showing off more of their fun chemistry, but with interesting developments. Scotty has a moral dilemma with Kirk, Spock and Uhura are having relationship issues, and Kirk and Spock are working on their friendship. It would be entertaining to watch another chapter of these characters together, but it's the arrival of Benedict Cumberbatch as the mysterious villain who targets Starfleet that escalates the excitement. Ready to find out why Star Trek Into Darkness is so great? Just keep reading.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pine, and Zachary Quinto made a hot trio at last night's Star Trek Into Darkness premiere in NYC.

I already have my tissues ready just watching the trailer for August: Osage County, which stars Meryl Streep as the matriarch of a family who gathers for the funeral of her husband (Sam Shepard). The kids all come home to Oklahoma, most notably Julia Roberts as eldest daughter Barbara, and unkind words, snark, and tears are unleashed. August: Osage County is full of familiar faces, and the rest of the extended family includes Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin, and Margo Martindale. Whew!
Obviously, if Streep is involved you know you're in for a dramatic treat, and she's bringing it in the preview, but it also looks like Roberts and the supporting cast are at the top of their game, too. This adaptation of a stage play looks so powerful already, and I can't wait to see it when it comes into theaters Nov. 8 — right in time for award season. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Season three of Sherlock is up and running! After recently confirming the show will return for a fourth season, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, in Sherlock and Watson gear, respectively, have hit the streets of London to film episodes for the new season.
This week, we also learned the title of season three's second episode: "The Sign of Three," likely based on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle original story The Sign of Four, the case in which Watson meets his future wife, Mary Morstan. The first episode in the series, "The Empty Hearse," is thought to be a take on Doyle's The Empty House, which details the detective's return from the dead.
Producer Sue Vertue took to the web to beg fans who spot the crew out filming on location not to reveal/tweet/Instagram/Vine/all of the above any plot spoilers or specifics on the production's daily location. No show spoilers in the following gallery from the first week of London filming, other than, yes, that is an iPad Benedict is carrying to set, and we'll speculate the other device is a Kindle of some kind. Proceed to the Sherlock extravaganza!
