J.J. Abrams' production company Bad Robot has quickly become known for series like Lost and Super 8 that are rooted in smart, sci-fi concepts — and the company is now teaming up with pop-culture exhibitor Gallery 1988 to show off independent artists' interpretations of its own properties. The gallery opened Friday and will have work from over 100 artists on display through May 18th, but SlashFilm has gathered 46 pieces from the exhibit and is displaying them online for those who can't make it to the Los Angeles exhibit.

SlashFilm's preview includes work based on Star Trek, Lost, Fringe, Super 8, and Alias. The pieces tend to depict Bad Robot's properties in one of two ways: by either applying the artist's own style and interpretation,...

Playing Bane in The Dark Knight Rises might have made Tom Hardy a household name, but it wasn’t his first major genre sequel. The actor – who really hit the radar of film fans starring in Nicolas Winding-Refn’s Bronson – previously appeared in Star Trek: Nemesis as Shinzon, a villainous clone of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, and a video of the actor’s screen test has surfaced online. Check it out below.

Thanks to E! Online (via Trek Movie) for the heads up.

You can almost see the movie star beginning to exude from him. Granted, it would take six years until his break out role – Bronson – and after that, another four until his huge coming out party, Dark Knight Rises so a decade passed from then to now. In between, films like Layer Cake and Inception certainly helped, and Warrior was a star making performance in an under appreciated film, but it’s hard to deny the real milestones of his career were this, Bronson and Dark Knight Rises.

Did you remember Hardy was in this film? When you saw it, did he stand out?

From its first launch 30 years ago to its final launch scheduled for next Friday, NASA's Space Shuttle program has seen moments of dizzying inspiration and of crushing disappointment. When next week's launch is complete, the program will have sent up 135 missions, ferrying more than 350 humans and thousands of tons of material and equipment into low Earth orbit. Fourteen astronauts have lost their lives along the way -- the missions have always been risky, the engineering complex, the hazards extreme. As we near the end of the program, I'd like to look back at the past few decades of shuttle development and missions as we await the next steps toward human space flight. [61 photos]
