Re: No News, No Nothing!!

Exactly. I'm curious about the next Trek movie, too, but it's not like we don't have plenty of stuff to occupy us between now and next May: a new Bond movie, a new Hobbit movie, the new season of Walking Dead, etc.

I'll worry about next summer's movies next summer!

Next year is certainly going to stretch my film-going budget. At least by comparison with the last few years.

And nobody is under any obligation to report new news. When does this thing come out? Next May? I hope there's no new information until April.

Re: No News, No Nothing!!

There was a time you wouldn't even hear anything about a new movie until just before its release, so you went into the theatre not knowing in advance what the story was about. Abrams is kind of "old school" that way.

Or, Abrams needs to stop living in the past and get with the times. The entire script for Nemesis was available online 17 months before its release. It's 9 months before Trek XII's release and all we know is that Benedict Cumberbatch is wearing a black t-shirt.

I prefer (much prefer) the "old school" way. I wish a LOT more people in the film industry took his approach. I've almost stopped watching movie trailers because unlike the best ones of yesteryear, that teased and hinted, many simply offer too much information and ruin the surprise. Better no trailer than that kind of trailer.

Trailers have always been revealing key plot points about movies. The trailer for The Search fo Spock featured the Enterprise's destruction.

Are you being facetious, or do you honestly believe the script being available on the Internet before release of a movie is a good thing and should be standard operating procedure? IMHO, that's a terrible idea, you wouldn't be able to go on the Internet for fear some creep is gonna spill every little thing by blurting it out in casual conversation, no spoiler warnings or anything. I personally want my first viewing experience to be as untainted as possible by spoilers. Now sure, I don't have a problem with knowing who is in the movie, what characters they're playing and some basic plot information, but, the entire script, no way would I ever want that to be standard practice.

He was merely reminding us that Nemesis was the single biggest failure in Star Trek history, and that secrecy can only be a good thing.

No.

There's no virtue or advantage to doing so.

Next.

And I would say that problem was where it garnered most of the incredible wave of hatred and bad word of mouth - that led to the film not making a profit.

Imagine what things were like for Trekkies before the internet...
