    Do you know how many times the past 5 years I've seen a headline almost just like this? It's the boy who cries wolf at this point. Let's get the cameras rolling so we can have a headline about that.

    Yeah I'm just rolling my eyes at these rumours at this point. I want another movie absolutely, I'd love to see another one with the Kelvin cast in fact but I'm totally bored with these articles.

    Remember when Chris Pine was playing "young Kirk?" Now he's 3 years older than Shatner was when the original series ended...He'll be "The Motion Picture" age by the time the next film hits theaters.

    They always were, but there are a few differences between each era.

    ^^this

    It's clever as well as a crutch. 2009's movie is okay enough but a bit too superficial with the references (which serve far less purpose than those used in "Lower Decks" and haven't dated well either because Kirk boinking green women, eatin' apples, and those 4th wall memed nostalgiabting are up there with the cut'n'paste style NEM's script was )...

    2013's entry would have been far better if they didn't nostalgiabate with "Khan", as the main plot and villains were already very strong on its own prior to that moment of some hilariously bad "dun-dun-dunnnn acting". It's still worth a watch, but if you have the desire to laugh at it during viewing, go to a restroom so you don't have people around you in the theater wondering what's up, but that aside some people understood and started laughing with me too... But look beyond that hokum "Khan" crud and there's a great movie in this that just needed a few minor tweaks and the confidence to be itself without using TOS' past as a crutch. It's not even a sequel, it's a redo and one that doesn't stand up to the original characters once the name is revealed. (B- for trying, I did like the altered premise for the genetically engineered rebels, but John Harrison alone and as his own self made a great villain as well as Admiral Robocop with a fantastic double double-cross, which was genuinely great. But ended up being less than the sum of its parts and only because of nostalgiabating. :( )

    2016's movie ("Beyond") was caught in the wrong place thanks to STID's fumbles, but it's a heck of a lot better than the reputation accord it (partly because people critiqued it before seeing it, but it's no wonder Simon Pegg was upset. I delayed seeing Beyond because of the previous two being hot messes, but still gave it a chance before critiquing and-- well, people should give it a chance, it's rather better than its reputation claims and I wish I saw it in the theater. Pegg upped the ante and did the crew the best treatment IMHO.)

    So I'm scrolling TrekBBS out of boredom and I see no one has brought up Paramount's announcement the recent reports that Paramount are bowing out of big budget tentpole theatrical films now (with likely notable exceptions for MI and probably Transformers) and will be focusing on mid budget, paramount+ friendly productions.

    Seems to me that's the death knell for the big budget Kelvinverse TOS movies, and instead we'll probably be getting a bunch of smaller streaming Trek movies. It's possible some may be set in the Kelvinverse, but I sincerely doubt they will be able to afford to use the same cast.

    This article quotes a Paramount executive who suggests otherwise (about tentpoles, not Kelvinverse specifically).

    I saw it when it was being shared on twitter a week or so ago, I don't have the link anymore. Probably come up if you google around.

    Nothing about it on Paramount's Twitter, either: Paramount Pictures (@ParamountPics) / Twitter

    The only thing coming up anywhere near the top in a Google search is this speculative snippet from Dark Horizons (about whose reliability I really don't know anything):

    According to THR (via Slashfilm), Robbins has not dealt with A-list movie stars before and insiders for the trade believe: “Paramount will be scaling back on its theatrical tentpole productions to focus on titles that will service Paramount+.”

    Paramount To Scale Back On Blockbusters? - Dark Horizons

    They're reporting something they saw reported by someone else (Slashfilm) about a change of studio CEO, based on yet another report (THR). It seems to point to more focus on Paramount+ and streaming for the present, but there's nothing to indicate whether this "scaling back" constitutes a long-term plan for Paramount or just hunkering down while the pandemic still has a substantial effect on theater-going activity.

    Indeed, that quote is very carefully not attributed to any specific person -- merely the ubiquitous and always-loquacious "insiders for the trade".

    As I thought, Long Treks that go straight to P+.

    It was Matt Zoller Seitz, editor at large at Rogerebert.com and Vulture, formerly the NYT, that I saw it from, if that helps. Maybe I'm misremembering and it wasn't an announcement, just reporting.
