‘Star Trek’ 3D Sequel To Open May 17, 2013

Quote
EXCLUSIVE: Sony moved Roland Emmerich’s Singularity from May 17th, 2013, to Nov 1, 2013. So now Paramount is grabbing that primo pre-Memorial Weekend date of May 17, 2013 for its much anticipated writer/director J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek sequel (which is really No. 12 among the Captain Kirk/Mr Spock star fleet movies). No title yet. But this one is being co-written by Abrams with Lost‘s Damon Lindelof, plus Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci. But JJ is going to be making the movie in 3D. The first of Abram’s rebooted franchise opened May 8, 2009 for a $79M weekend and ultimate did $258M in North America and $130M international at the box office. The pic is being produced by all those writers and Bryan Burk, who is JJ’s Bad Robot production partner. It is anticipated that David Ellison’s Skydance will be co-financing the film with Paramount. All key cast members will be returning, like Chris Pine and Zach Quinto and Zoe Saldana.

Paramount took a real risk rebooting what many thought was a tired franchise played out but the studio wound up with another potent franchise. That’s because Abrams’ reboot widened well beyond Star Trek‘s rabid but older fanbase and attracted a new and younger audience. (Paramount marketed the movie as “not your father’s Star Trek”.) And the critical reviews were 96% positive. The goal of the new pic was to finally attract more filmgoers overseas since the franchise had never done $100M international before.

As for the sequel, Abrams had to finish Super 8 so there was no way he could make the June 29, 2012 release date that Paramount initially had carved out for the film. (The studio gave that slot to its other sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation.) Abrams had been hunkering down with writers Orci, Kurtzman, and Lindelof to work on the Star Trek script. The studio exercised its option on the cast and they would be ready when Abrams was.

Was there ever a doubt that they would do a sequel?

I quite liked the Abrams Star Trek... I mean it wasn't all that much shittier than anything that came before it... It was no Wrath of Khan in the good sense, but it was certainly not Nemesis in the bad sense. Had generally likable actors doing acceptable work... even if it was under layers of goofy lens flare and a sub par villain.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty good. Sure, it was my first actual exposure to anything Trek, but still. It was just fighting a terrible script and, as noted, a subpar villain, but the excellent actors and good direction/effects helped it pull ahead. Got hopes for the second one, and am even blaming the bad script from the first one on the writing strike (I should be blaming it on the fact that it was written by total hacks, but hey, no sense getting hung up there).

I don't mean any disrespect, but I believe this forum needs to stop talking about any opinions regarding Star Trek 2009...or any "new trek" for that matter. From now on, I propose that all our Star Trek 2009 related discussions inlcude the phrase: "I have feelings for this film of which I shall not discuss here"


So Star Trek 2 Alt Timeline is coming out. I have feelings for this film which I shall not discuss here"

May this thread remain forever peaceful  ;)

Is it possible to put a forum filter on it? Like back when Red Dawn was converted to That Movie RVR Wants Riffed (or something like that. I joined a bit late into that particular running gag so a lot of it flew over my head).

I am not purposely avoiding disrespect... altho not actively courting it.

That said,

What the fuck was this quoted response supposed to mean?

I don't know. I am just worn out and tired of any fighting. I guess I was trying to make a satirical observation that since we are going to re-live another star trek movie can we please be peaceful with our opinions?

please

I'll see it in theatres, but I most likely won't spring for 3D.
