Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

People involved with Star Trek have already come out and said that JJ Abrams can do both.

And I don't think Star Wars will kill Star Trek as much s people here think. The prequels left a bad taste in people's mouth and Star Trek is somewhat popular, we will see how popular come May.

The poll results at the trekmovie site indicate that over 60% don't want Abrams to direct a third movie. I have to agree with that majority. It would be best if he left.

A bunch of Trek nerds luckily are not in charge of the new films.

Why would they want that? Are they afraid that there would be three successful Trek films in a row?

I thought Star Trek III did pretty well without Abrams.

None of them gets a vote that matters. Period, full stop.

Because a group a "fans" want Star Trek to remain something only a small and shrinking fanbase enjoys until it eventually dies out.

Probably he just wants it to be something he likes.

More like a vocal minority.

The folks who vote at fan websites are only a tiny sliver of the moviegoing audience.

That's not Abrams's fault.

That's kind of too bad, since it is already something a great many other people like instead.

He seems to dislike his contribution most.

And again, as long as Abrams is pleasing a mass audience that's just too bad for folks who dislike him.

Re: star trek 3 without jjabrams

Hmm so between now and 2016 (Trek's 50th anniversary) JJ is supposed to direct and produce, Star Wars VII, Star Trek XIII, and Mission Impossible 5, and any other movie and TV projects he aspires to complete....

The man is an artist. Not a director for hire. He'll give 2 years to Star Wars, take a break , and maybe focus on other projects. Paramount will likely ask JJ to be a consulting producer for Star Trek XIII. Since JJ dragged his feet about even saying he would commit to Trek sequel back in 2011 while promoting Super 8. However I think Paramount will go a different route and choose another director to helm Trek. It'll be like the Bond franchise almost.
