Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Zosia Mamet and Gaby Hoffmann were among the stars of 'Girls' who were spotted arriving at the premiere of season four of the show, held at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
With the fourth season of 'Girls' set to debut of 11th January, the cast and various celebrities arrived at the New York première for the series.
The American Museum of Natural History in New York was the sight of something pretty spectacular on 5th January 2015. And no, it wasn't because Ben Stiller was running around at night with a magical tablet and entourage of historical waxworks that look oddly like famous film stars. The Museum was, however, the location for the premiere for season four of HBO's 'Girls'.
As well as the majority of the main cast, the premiere saw members of the supporting cast and various additional celebrities arriving to support the premiere. In addition to Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Adam Driver posing on the red carpet and with one another, 'Mad Men''s Jon Hamm and 'Star Trek''s Zachary Quinto also made an appearance. The event was similar to the way in which the premiere for season three took place at The Lincoln Centre in Manhattan and also saw a string on celebrities checking in to show support.

'Sex And The City' star Sarah Jessica Parker and 'White Collar' actor Matt Bomer were snapped on arriving at the 2014 AmfAR Inspiration Gala in New York, and while Sarah had the time for a few photos, Matt seemed to be among the few who took the time to sign autographs and take pictures with fans. He can even be seen sharing a brief conversation with popular homeless person/actor Radioman.
NBC say the surprising return is 'shrouded in secrecy'
'Heroes' was one of the most talked dramas on television when it aired in 2006, initially being well received as an original concept, then because of the stark dip in quality, which became an in-joke for the media’s more satirical outlets.
Remember 'Heroes'? Well, It's Back.
Now, it seems, Heroes is back for more. The studio plan to bring the show back in 2015 as a miniseries - imaginatively titled: 'Heroes Reborn.' NBC aired a teaser during its Olympics coverage on Saturday, giving fans of the cult hit a real thrill.

NBC is bringing one of its most loved shows out of retirement for a brief run in 2015.
Good news for any Heroes fans out there – NBC is reviving its hit show in miniseries form. NBC announced the news during its Olympic broadcast on Saturday. The new show, appropriately titled Heroes: Reborn will premiere in 2015 and get a 13-episode run, according to E! News. The series even got a brief teaser during the Olympic coverage.
The big question is, which of the original actors will return?
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' stars Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are snapped on the red carpet at the New York premiere held at the Beacon Theatre. The comediennes are new additions to the cast which also sees the return of the old news team led by Will Ferrell.
Robert Redford and his wife Sibylle Szaggars posed on the red carpet at the premiere of his new ocean adventure movie 'All Is Lost' during the New York Film Festival. Redford is the sole actor in the flick about a lone sailor whose boat gets wrecked beyond repair leaving him stranded on a life raft in the middle of a storm.
Fervent fans of Star Trek have queried the movie's title.
Star Trek Into Darkness has been causing quite a stir online, though it's nothing to do with the film itself, which has largely been praised by critics. Speaking on his and Simon Mayo's radio show on BBC5 Live, Mark Kermode brought up a debate stirring in the Twitter world about the movie's title, before putting it to director Jj Abrams during a phone interview.
Kermode noted that many fans had been left disappointed by the title Into Darkness because Star Trek cannot go into darkness, or anything for that matter. A colon would have sorted this out and detached the two parts of the title, though Abrams argued that it shouldn't be taken too literally and that it only referred to Star Trek as an entity that could move into a darkening periods, "I'd like to start with an apology, I didn't mean to cause.[a fight]" he told Kermode.
Upon discovering that the movie had no colon, one Twitter user, "If "Star Trek Into Darkness" (yup, no colon) is really the name they've chosen for the Abrams sequel, someone needs to slap JJ with a fish." Another said, "Star Trek Into Darkness is the official name of the Star Trek sequel. Should there have been a colon?"

After his successful re-imagining of the Star Trek universe four years ago, Abrams dives even deeper into the mythology, which is thrilling for fans but might leave newcomers feeling a bit lost. This sequel surges forward with action, drama, romance and a lot of comedy while constantly nodding back to the earlier TV series and films. And the smart screenplay finds ways to deepen all of the characters along the way, as well as offering an unusually complex villain.
The action picks up soon after the first film ends, as Kirk (Pine) is once again in trouble for disobeying the Prime Directive not to interfere with a planet's culture. But his punishment is short-lived, as Starfleet becomes the victim of brutal attacks in London and San Francisco, sending Kirk, his first officer Spock (Quinto) and the gang (Saldana, Urban, Yelchin and Cho, with Pegg following later) into enemy space to chase the villainous John Harrison (Cumberbatch). But of course, there's a much bigger story going on, and Harrison has a reason for his violent behaviour, leading to a series of terrifying showdowns as they all return to earth.
While the script is packed with shadowy characters, there's not much actual "darkness" in this movie. It's a pretty bouncy, energetic ride, continually making us laugh at tetchy interaction and throwaway one-liners, all of which are cleverly character-based rather than merely silly gags. This gives each actor a chance to shine, with Pegg and Urban offering much of the humour with their amusing crankiness, while Saldana provides the stereotypical female emotional beats. As usual, the strongest scenes are between Kirk and Spock, and their shifting bromance is well-played by Pine and especially Quinto. But dominating the whole film is a meaty turn from Cumberbatch as a particularly fearsome nemesis who also happens to be both brainy and openly emotive.

The first and the latest in a line of Spocks faced off in an Audi ad.
Audi’s newest ad pits Spock against Spock as Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto face off in a race to the golf club. Ok, so that sounds considerably less epic than it could have been with two Spocks in the picture, but the ad isn’t half bad. It opens with Quinto and Nimoy playing online chess. When Quinto loses, he challenges his predecessor to a race - a race to the golf club, of course, in typical rich guy fashion. Naturally, while the young’un cruises along in his shiny new Audi, the original Spock struggles to ever get his old beater started. Engine troubles, exhaust troubles, even his stereo cuts out at one point – Nimoy barely makes it to the swanky golf club in one piece and when he does, Quinto is already there waiting for him, all smug and confident.
The veteran has the last laugh though, as in a nod to the beloved series, he neutralizes Quinto right at the finish line, using the infamous Vulcan nerve punch. The whole thing is full of Star Trek-related quips and there’s even a nod to The Hobbit in there – it’s basically a nerd’s dream ad. It’s quite funny too. If you don’t mind your entertainment trying to pitch you some products that is.

The cast and crew of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' discuss their biggest challenges on the movie, their successful auditions and working with each other at the official UK press conference for the movie. Among them are producer Bryan Burk, writers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof, director Jj Abrams and actors Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Alice Eve, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pine.
As the stars of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' arrive at the premiere, they seem to show nothing but excitement about this new sequel. Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Benedict Cumberbatch, Karl Urban and director J.J. Abrams are all quizzed on the new movie as they make their way along the red carpet.
Stars speak at CinemaCon 2013 in Las Vegas about much-anticipated new movie
The stars and crew of Star Trek: Into The Darkness have been talking up the forthcoming film in a series of videos that you can watch on Contactmusic right here. Director Jj Abrams, and actors Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, John Cho and Alice Eve have all been talking about the film, which is being hugely anticipated ahead of its eventual release on May 17th.

Jj Abrams - the writer and producer behind the forthcoming Star Trek movie - has discussed the secrecy behind his various projects and explained while he refuses to offer fans bonus footage before release dates. The creator of Lost is known for keeping the details of his projects under wraps, though insists it's for the viewer's overall benefit.
"I will sit in a meeting before a movie with 80-some people, heads of departments, and literally say that all I ask is that we preserve the experience for the viewer," Abrams told Entertainment Weekly, "Every choice we make, every costume fitting, every pad of makeup, every set that's built - all that stuff becomes less magical if it's discussed and revealed and pictures are posted online. I just want to make sure that when somebody sees something in a movie they didn't watch a 60-minute behind-the-scene [video] that came out two months before." The hype for Star Trek Into Darkness is beginning to reach fever pitch, with both Abrams and several of his cast-members getting hacked-off with the clamour to discover who Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing. Fans and reporters have suggested the British star will portray legendary villain Khan, though pretty much everyone involved with the project has denied this. Abrams hinted at the speculation, saying, "It's only fun to keep things quiet when it finally comes out as scheduled, because then you feel like, 'Oh I didn't just spend six months ruining the movie for people.It's not fun during the experience of withholding. Because then you sound like a coy bastard . and you're sort of being a jerk."
Captain Kirk and his formidable Enterprise crew are back and this time danger is closer than they think. On returning to their home planet, they discover that a ruthless force integrated among them has caused massive destruction among the Starfleet and left their planet in total disaster. Kirk and the crew must band together for a life threatening mission that could destroy them all as they set out in a war against this terrible threat. But this time, lives are not the only thing at stake; friendships will be tested, hearts will be broken and Kirk must make sacrifices against his Enterprise family in order to finally settle the score with an old foe.
'Star Trek Into Darkness' becomes the twelfth 'Star Trek' movie since the sci-fi series released the first one, entitled 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture', in 1979. It serves as the sequel to the simply named 2009 film 'Star Trek' and has been directed by the same person J.J. Abrams ('Super 8') with writing credits from Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman ('The Legend of Zorro', 'Transformers', 'Cowboys & Aliens') and Damon Lindelof ('Prometheus'). It will finally hit screens after much anticipation on May 17th 2013 in the UK.
Starring: Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Peter Weller, John Cho, Nazneen Contractor, Bruce Greenwood, Heather Langenkamp, Nolan North,

Fans of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings franchise will get an extra special treat should they head to their nearest IMAX 3-D cinemas to watch The Hobbit this festive season. Paramount Pictures has announced it will release the first nine minutes of J.J Abrams new Star Trek movie Into Darkness immediately before Jackson's new epic.
Nine minutes is a considerable sneak peek of a movie not set for release until May 2013. It also represents the first time that exclusive footage has played on IMAX 3-D screens. "Our longtime partners J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and the Bad Robot team have really hit it out of the park," said Imax Filmed Entertainment president Greg Foster in a statement on The Hollywood Reporter, "The footage is absolutely incredible." Abrams new movie welcomes back Chris Pine as a young Captain Kirk while Zachary Quinto plays Mr Spock, as he did in the 2009 original. Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch will star as the villain, though the specifics of his role have been kept safely under wraps. The British actor has remained coy on the issue, though did tell Shortlist, "I'll tell you this - it's iconic and it's exciting. I'm bored of denying that it's Khan now, because people keep saying it. It's a great part and it's really well written. I enjoyed the fights and the stunts, there's lots of that and it really is properaction movie territory."
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits cinemas in the U.S. on December 14, 2012. Star Trek Into Darkness hits on May 17, 2013.
If you thought the premiere of American Horror Story Season 2 was good, you had better prepare yourself for some serious thrills in episode two.
If you don’t want to know what happens, then stop reading now, but if you just can’t wait until the next episode hits your television screens, then read on, there’s some pretty exciting stuff in store.
As the first episode ended, so the second begins, with Theresa (played by Jenna Dewan Tatum) running away from the gruesome Bloody Face. We’ll tell you that much, but we won’t tell you what happens to her, just yet. What we will tell you though is that Zachary Quinto makes his debut as Dr. Oliver Thredson. E! Online have described him as “a breath of fresh air for viewers” and fans of the show will relish seeing how he interacts with the likes of Sister Jude (Jessica Lange) and Dr. Arden (James Cromwell) when he comes to Briarcliffe to assess whether or not Kit (Evan Peters) is fit for trial. He learns a thing or two about modern psychiatric teachings, from a patient who suggests that not all can be explained by what he has already learned.
