What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly gathering of links that was almost known as Oscar News After Dark, but then its creators remembered that they only really care about he Oscars for about one week per year, so it would have been a waste. With that in mind, welcome to the final edition of News After Dark in that one week of the year when we care about the Oscars.
We begin tonight with an image tweeted by writer Roberto Orci, who may or may not being issuing a controlled leak situation for Paramount from the set of Star Trek 2. Said producer Damon Lindelof of the pic, which depicts a yet unknown character played by Benedict Cumberbatch being subdued by Zach Quinto’s Spock, “The weird thing about that Trek photo is we weren’t even shooting. Quinto just really hates Cumberbatch.”

Legit nerds will want to buy this limited-edition The Walking Dead Vannen watch. It will come in handy over the course of the next 10 episodes as the gang continue to do absolutely nothing interesting and probably spend time scouring the woods looking for anything but action.

To drop a nerd cred bomb on you, here’s an example of one classic that’s hanging in Reject HQ at this very moment. It’s an original Tim Doyle:
The audacious country known as France held their own awards this week, the whatever annual César Awards, in which they loved up on The Artist just as the Academy will here in America in less than 48 hours.
Are IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes still our best reference tools? Movies.com’s Christopher Campbell takes A Sad Look at Crowd-Sourced Film Sites. Quick, someone tell him that IMDb is run by 15 year olds in Kansas. Todd Phillips said so.
We close tonight with a video called Oscar Party Drinking Game. It begins lobbing easy ones at a simple premise. When someone thanks God, take a drink. When the host changes their outfit, take a shot. And so on. Then it gets a little strange. And then it gets really strange. It’s a bit disjointed and all sorts of ADD, but we can’t help but give them points for the effort. And the desire to take the joke way too far.
