Didn't Paramount green light the sequel before the first film came out?
Yes.
The film came out in May 2009 and we had news the sequel was green lit in March 2009.
A one-hundred and fifty million dollar movie and a sequel that was given the go-ahead before the first ticket was sold... sounds like Paramount had an awful lot of faith in a 'dead' property.

Even if the Abrams film had bombed, I don't believe the property would've died. It likely would've had a more radical reboot done.
