Benedict Cumberbatch divulges Star Trek villain details

Dec 7 2012, 8:43am CST | by

Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed his 'Star Trek Into Darkness' character is ''ruthless''.

The 36-year-old actor and director J.J. Abrams have kept the identity of the mysterious villain under wraps until now, but the 'War Horse' star let slip his evil alter ego would be very difficult to judge because of his ambiguous nature.

Benedict told Trek Movie: ''He is very ruthless. He is not a clearly good or evil character. He is a villain but the actions he takes has intent and reason.

''He is a complicated character not to be judged by white-or-black, or good-or-evil. But this is the appeal of J.J.'s works and I felt challenged as an actor.''

The British star praised 'LOST' creator J.J.'s 2009 reboot of the cult sci-fi series, but is wary of the franchise's popularity and said he was overcome with ''terror'' when he realised how many people would be watching the sequel.

Benedict explained: ''I was a fan of the [first film], so I was pleased when I got the offer. But I know the second one will become far-bigger scale, so I felt terror instantly.''

His co-star Chris Pine - who plays hero Captain James T. Kirk - was impressed with Benedict's ''formidable'' performance on set and thinks fans will love the intensity he brings to the film.

Chris recently said: ''Obviously I can't say much, but there's one scene in it. It's a really hard scene, not for me, but for Benedict. And watching him handle that and to make something that I think, on paper, could have really been a death trap for an actor. He's formidable as an actor and as a character in the story.''

'Star Trek Into Darkness' is released on May 17 next year.

‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ Banner Teases Returning Characters

Sep 15 2014 1:21pm CDT | Source: screen rant

Peter Jackson hasn’t done “small” in some time, and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies won’t be an exception, just going by a newly-released giant tapestry for the film. It’s fitting enough, however, as this fantasy blockbuster is (probably) the last of Jackson’s movies set in Middle-earth; the final chapter (and Jackson’s favorite installment) in the filmmaker’s Hobbit trilogy; and the segment of Jackson’s ongoing adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s literature that will bridge the e ...

The Imitation Game Review

Sep 8 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: ign

This review is part of IGN's cover of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Alan Turing's legacy was as ciphered as the World War II codes he broke. Confidentiality kept his miraculous work breaking Hitler's “Enigma Code” from the public eye. Criminal charges filed against him for homosexuality, prosecution provoking him to commit suicide by cyanide at the age of 41, shuffled him into obscurity. In The Imitation Game, Headhunters director Morten Tyldum and Bene ...
