    J.J. Abrams Says 'Star Trek 2' Might Not Be Able To Make Its June 29, 2012 Release Date

    With at least fifteen sequels already planned for release in 2012, the biggest question mark of them all remains "Star Trek 2." Currently, the film is still pegged with a June 29, 2012 release date but with J.J. Abrams not yet signed on, everything else -- including further script work -- is on hold until until the helmer makes a decision, and its looking unlikely for the sequel to make its target date. In fact, it was only a couple of weeks ago that reports surfaced that the film would be pushed to a winter 2012 release date. J.J. Abrams spoke with press today in advance of Friday's release of "Super 8," and Playlist writer Leah Zak was on hand and the director himself was quite candid about the chances of the "Star Trek 2" making it to your local multiplex next summer.

    Watch: New Clips From 'Harry Potter 7.5,' 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' & 'The Help'

    Like the Super Bowl, The MTV Movie Awards is less about who wins what than the spectacle of the event which brings music and movie stars together in one place and lets them party. It's also a marketing machine with many studios using the opportunity to pimp their summer movies and with "Super 8" and "Breaking Dawn" walking away with the most-talked-about trailers last night, these other clips from forthcoming releases were a bit overshadowed, so in case you missed them, here they are.

    Broadcast Critics Announce First TV Award Nominations

    Speaking of awards, the Broadcast Television Journalists Association - a new offshoot of the Broadcast Film Critics Association - have announced nominations for the inaugural Critics’ Choice Television Awards. And a few annoyances aside (where are "Treme," "Eastbound & Down," Merrit Weaver, Laura Linney, Kiernan Shipka and Aziz Ansari? And why aren't "Sons of Anarchy," "Raising Hope" and "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" in the best series lists?), they are a much needed counterpoint to the generally problematic Primetime Emmy Awards. The full list below:

    David Arquette Casts Sister Patricia In 'Glutton'

    It worked for the Fondas with "On Golden Pond", so why not for the Arquettes with, er, the “psychological thriller” “Glutton”? Variety reports that the awkward youngest sibling David is intent on getting the band back together, as a case of mutually-beneficial Hollywood nepotism wins the day again. Casting his older sister Patricia in his second full-length feature as director, not only gives her flagging/non-existent movie career a leg-up, it’s also balances the karma after David’s stint directing three episodes of her lamentably dull TV show “Medium” which somehow managed to stay on the air for seven whole years before being cancelled last December.

    Getting Creatively Minded People to Cannes... and Toronto... and Sundance...

    Robert Ford, Howard graduate, producer of non-scripted/reality TV, and founder of Creative Minds, is not an easy man to track down just before or during the first half of Cannes Film Festival. It's not surprising, really, when you consider his remit for this two weeks is to shepherd a host of new and relatively more seasoned film industry hopefuls through the business, creative and networking side of the film industry as it happens at one of the biggest and most prestigious film festivals today. Creative Minds In Canneswas set up in 2003 when Ford was still in college writing his short film, Dorm Window, and after he had been to Cannes on an internship which he felt didn't quite live up to its promises nor give value for money. So, like a true entrepreneur, rather than just complain about it, he decided to set up his own program which has since gone from strength to strength.
