Nobody is as big a fan of J.J. Abrams' movies as the director's inner 12-year-old. Abrams grew up on the works of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, and the filmmaker and TV producer is carving out a résumé that one day may will probably stand alongside those of his childhood icons. There are his creations for TV, such as Lost and Fringe, for sure, but it's Abrams' big-screen sci-fi fare that has captured the attention of pop culture. Opening Wednesday on IMAX screens and Thursday nationwide is his Star Trek Into Darkness, a sequel to 2009's popular Star Trek, which reinvigorated the franchise launched by Gene Roddenberry 1966.
