J.J. Abrams Premieres Very Brief Scene From ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ On ‘Conan’

Conan O’Brien‘s nightly talk show on TBS is really becoming quite the hot spot for surprise major movie announcements. Hot on the heels of Will Ferrell announcing in March that an Anchorman sequel had been given the green light for a release sometime in 2013 comes the world premiere of finished footage from one of next summer’s hotly-anticipated motion picture events.

Last night J.J. Abrams stopped by Conan to discuss, among other things, his upcoming film Star Trek Into Darkness, the long-awaited sequel to his blockbuster 2009 reboot of the continuing voyages of the starship Enterprise, Star Trek. During the interview Abrams surprised O’Brien and sidekick Andy Richter with the news that he had wanted to bring with him the first footage from the movie to premiere on the show. Unfortunately Paramount Pictures had a slight problem with that, but after Abrams’ insistence the studio relented, but only on the condition that Abrams limit the footage shown to just three frames of film.

You can watch the video here below. The actual scene begins – and ends – at the 1:50 mark.

Movie Review: Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop

Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop
Directed by Rodman Flender
Starring: Conan O’Brien, Andy Richter
Release Date: June 24, 2011 (limited)
On Demand

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last year and half, you’ve at least heard of The Tonight Show debacle that happened last year. Conan O’Brien‘s short-lived reign as the show’s host only lasted 7 months, but the fallout from his departure lasted significantly longer. Though it was certain O’Brien would land another show with ease, as part of his exit deal with NBC, O’Brien was prohibited from appearing on TV and radio for six months. To fill the gap, O’Brien went on his “Legally Prohibited from being Funny on Television Tour.” But even during this time, O’Brien often found himself in front of a camera, as Rodman Flender filmed a documentary about the trip. Nearly a year later, the film is now showing in a very limited amount of theaters.

The appropriately titled Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop opens with a brief summary of the events that led O’Brien to leave his post and follows the tour from conception to its aftermath. Starting with the idea of a road show, O’Brien and his team of writers and producers hastily lay out plans for a 90-minute program that is little more than an idea even after tickets have gone on sale. Pressure begins to mount quickly as, to the visible surprise of everyone, the first two shows sell out in less than 20 minutes.

Andy Richter Set To Re-Join Conan O’Brien On TBS Show ‘Conan’
  |  @   |  

Through all of the drama that has unfolded involving Conan O’Brien and NBC’s The Tonight Show, the light at the end of the tunnel was always where he would end up next. Second to that, we all wondered just how similar Conan’s new show would be to his old ones.

Lost in the talk show drama fire, we know that all of the crazy things that O’Brien created while at NBC — such as Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, for example — are the property of the network and will not be used again. What NBC doesn’t own, however, are the human beings that have worked with Conan in the past, and one has been confirmed for the reunion.

It’s being reported that none other than Andy Richter will indeed join O’Brien on his new TBS show, titled Conan, when it debuts on November 8, 2010. Richter was a beloved member of Late Night with Conan O’Brien back in the good old days before he left the show to try out his acting chops. The duo reunited when Conan took over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno, but we all know how well that played out.

Rumors have been dancing around for a month or so now that Conan O’Brien would be going on a big tour in his time off before choosing which network will be the lucky one chosen to pay O’Brien a ton of money to host a late-night show for them (Read: Conan O’Brien To Go On Tour For His Fans Before Choosing New Job?).

This exciting possibility has now in fact been confirmed by Conan via his Twitter account. The tour is called the Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television tour, and it will span 30 different cities, with many of the cities such as Boston, Chicago, and New York having second shows added already. You can find all of the dates and details over at TeamCoco.com!
