Just to be clear, this is, in fact, a real clip from Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams’ sequel to 2009’s hit film Star Trek. However, being that it was revealed on Conan O’Brien’s late night show Conan, it comes as no surprise that the clip is hilariously only three frames long.

According to Abrams, apparently Paramount Pictures actually did not want him to bring a clip of the movie on the show so soon before the film’s release next May, and would only allow him something extremely short. Of course, this could just have also been a stunt pulled by Abrams and Conan just to get some laughs (it got me to chuckle, anyway). Either way, the clip is for real, and features Spock (Zackary Quinto) in a volcano. Hit the jump to “watch.”

Star Wars Uncut

An incredible video has been floating around online today of a crowd-sourced project called Star Wars Uncut. In a nutshell, the project was started in 2009 by Vimeo developer Casey Pugh in which internet users from around the world could select a 15-second clip of their choice from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and remake it in their own creative way. The end result of the project is a “Director’s Cut” of sorts in which clips are hand-selected from the entire Star Wars Uncut collection and stitched together to form a full-length feature film – essentially remaking the original Star Wars as a fan film.

If you have a little over two hours to kill, and are fanatical enough about the original Star Wars that you pretty much know it frame by frame and line by line – you have to check out this great, collective work created by fans just like you from around the globe. Hit the jump to watch!

Beavis and Butt-Head

Yes! YES! A real reason to watch MTV!

Last summer, it was revealed that Mike Judge, original creator of the hit MTV show Beavis and Butt-Head that aired from 1993-1997, is working on 30 new episodes of the series. At the time, it was not confirmed that MTV (or any other network, for that matter) would pick it up. However, we now know straight from the horses mouth that MTV has officially confirmed the return of Beavis and Butt-Head – and it will start airing this summer!

No official air date has been set, but at least we know now that the show is happening, and soon! Click here to watch an episode of the show to remember what we’ve all been missing out on for all these years!

Hurley

According to a Tweet by LOST co-creator Damon Lindelof, 9,078 people played the New York Mega Millions Lottery last night, using LOST character Hugo “Hurley” Reyes’s (Jorge Garcia) “lucky” numbers from the TV series. Those numbers, being 4 8 15 16 23 42, won each person $150 since the winning numbers were 4-8-15-25-47 with a mega ball of 42!

Hurley’s numbers played a significant role on the series, both in bringing him extreme wealth ($156 million as a matter of fact) as well as extremely unlucky circumstances. They show up time and time again throughout the course of the series and end up tying in to the destinies of certain characters on “The Island.” Looks like 9,078 people – albeit a small, indirect way – have also partaken in this phenomenon.

I knew it! “The Island” is real!

Star Wars Holiday Special_2

Hardcore Yoda-heads are well aware of the abysmal 97-minute Star Wars TV spin-off known as The Star Wars Holiday Special, which reunited the cast from the feature film and also brought on special guest stars like Bea Arthur, Art Carney and the Jefferson Starship band. Broadcast only once on November 17, 1978 on CBS, it was never officially released on any type of home media because of how terrible it was. Even George Lucas himself reportedly said that, if he could, he would track down every copy of the show and smash it with a sledgehammer.

In response, Late Night Explosion created a 5-minute abridged version of the special as a humorous way for fans to not have to sit through the whole thing (of course, in order to fully appreciate the video, you have to have seen the original version beforehand). While this still doesn’t make the special “good,” it is certainly more tolerable. Check it out after the jump!
