Is the problem Paramount or a select group of fandom that can't let their vision of Star Trek go?[
To claim a movie that has made over $400 million worldwide is "Paramount trying to jam a square peg into a round hole" seems off the mark.
Different global reality now, where the Nolan Batman
films, Iron Man
and The Avengers
set the new standard of what can be achieved with fantasy films. In this era, nuTrek still fails to reach that top shelf of success despite the JJ car wax/parade fireworks trappings--allegedly designed to expand to the demographics known for following bigger films.
After all of the revision...the noise..in other words, "it's not yer daddy's Star Trek," what's the excuse?
