Prepare yourselves for a lil Star Trek spam, guys, basically there’s some real shit going down in the Star Trek fandom in the form of Bob Orci.
Bob Orci is a screenwriter commonly associated with Alex Kurtzman and JJ Abrams, and is notorious for being a real A-hole to fans. Like, when it became pretty clear that the Trekkies weren’t fans of Star Trek Into Darkness (for a lot of reasons: incoherent plot, whitewashing, objectification of the women) he got really defensive, insulted fans, attacked them verbally, and basically was just a real douchecanoe.
Now, even after that, the bad press regarding the Trekkies and the bad press regarding the way he handled a lot of things from the film, he’s gunning to direct the next movie.
This isn’t just any movie for us, either. It’s set to premiere on our 50th Anniversary, September 8, 2016. It’s really amazing and special to us and we’re really excited and we’re desperate to make sure that Bob Orci - a man that the Trek fandom does not like and does not respect the source material we all love - isn’t the man in charge of the franchise whenever the 50th rolls around.
So you might see us pushing Star Trek stuff and also the tag #StopOrci2014, but that’s just because we’re really upset and we’re trying to generate momentum and get Paramount to understand that we don’t want Bob Orci to take over Star Trek

A few days ago, I was suckered into reading Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. And by suckered, I mean peer pressured into an excellent life decision. Gone Girl is a great novel. It pushes old ideas and tropes into something amazingly dark and twisted and I loved every minute of it….
I never do text posts, but I thought this might be helpful to some of you out there. I’ve just got a full-time job working for a major studio and it’s still hard for me to believe it’s actually true! So I thought I would do a list of ten rules/pieces of advice for anyone who’s ever thought of working in film, and especially for a studio -they’re fairly obvious but bear with me, I’m still kind of new at these sort of things!

They’re baaack! Cillian and his very expressive hands in a new interview about Transcendence, filmed on the set last year. Posted the 5 min clip here earlier today if you missed it. Lots about his character Donald Buchanan and working with Wally Pfister and the cast. (X)
