Anniversary nonsense appeals to hardcore fandoms. Paramount has already demonstrated that their business and creative decisions vis-a-vis Star Trek are no longer driven by that kind of pandering.
Anniversaries are marketing opportunities. Everyone else who has celebrated a 50th anniversary in recent years has marked it somehow, and most Trek anniversaries have been marked
Yes, and there's no reason at all to produce and release a 150 million dollar movie to support an anniversary unless it makes business sense in general terms. "Marketing opportunities" are exploited to sell product; product doesn't exist to assist marketing (regardless of what the guys in marketing believe).

Paramount's going to let the Bad Robot people run this show for a while - so if the director isn't Abrams it will be someone mutually agreeable to him and to the Paramount suits.

The buzz has been all positive. And something tells me the folks at Disney might have gotten a bit of a peak already and liked enough of what they saw to offer Abrams the director's chair to their newly purchased cash cow.

Yeah, Disney didn't buy a pig in a poke here - how many other directors can hand in a "sizzle reel" like that nine-minute Into Darkness preview as an audition for Lucas's job?

Re: jj abrams not in 3rd star trek movie

Considering the amount of money Disney is throwing at Star Wars, it's possible they'll buy Bad Robot out of their contract with Paramount rather than have him involved with "the competition". If that happens, Trek is a ship without a captain.

I don't think Disney would buy out Bad Robot's contract with Paramount, and I don't think Abrams would approve of it if they wanted to.

Besides, this is Disney, they wouldn't buy out the contract, they'd just buy Bad Robot. The Mouse would make Abrams an offer he couldn't refuse. Don't let that falsetto, cartoonish voice fool you, the Mouse is tough.

Hell, maybe Disney will eventually buy "Star Trek".

Sadly, that's probably not far from the truth.

Studio condensing will surely continue, and in the end, there can be only one.

Re: jj abrams not in 3rd star trek movie

Is STID is a hit, Abrams should do the decent thing and make clear in quick order what his plans are for Star Trek.

Whether he will direct the next one or just produce or even give up production duties entirely.
When we will likely see the third movie (obviously 2016 would be ideal.)

Don't give a bunch of vague answers or promises.
If Star Wars is coming for 2015 or gets pushed to 2016 he can't be directing the next Trek unless it's gonna be 2018 or later--unacceptable.

Just make up your mind and tell us a concrete path forward.
