In 2009, J.J. Abrams' thrilling Star Trek reboot drew positive reactions from critics and fans alike, but the film wasn't perfect and there were some issues that bugged fans down the line.

After actor Simon Pegg (Scotty in 2009's Star Trek) teased us all by saying that the Star Trek 2 script was "amazeballs," now it's Chris Pine's (Captain Kirk) turn to give away some tantalizing bits about J.J. Abrams' anticipated sequel.

J.J. Abrams' Super 8 is one of the few genre movies coming out this summer that isn't a prequel or a sequel or an adaptation or a brand extension. And the more we see of this "something freaky descends on a small town and its kid filmmakers" thriller, the more we desperately want to see it.
Ever since J.J. Abrams announced way back when that he was rebooting Star Trek on the big screen, former Capt. Kirk actor William Shatner has been pretty vocal about wanting to be in the film. As we all know, it didn't happen, but he still wants in the sequel.

The 2009 Star Trek reboot brought with it some great moments (meeting the characters for the first time), some not-so-great moments (the destruction of the planet Vulcan) and some familiar faces (Leonard Nimoy as the coolest Vulcan in the galaxy). But what it didn't bring was a cameo by the original Capt. Kirk, William Shatner.
At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Fox execs asked reporters not to write off Fringe just yet. Moving the show to the Friday night "death slot" makes us afraid that the show will die the death of Firefly or Dollhouse. And no one's more scared than series creator J.J. Abrams.
