Well, admittedly it did make over $300 at the box office.
1) Do we know for certain Abrams is involved in this movie and that he has input into the story?
2) In what way is he an "expert" in time travel stories? IIRC, Trek XI is the only time he's dabbled in time travel, and even then he was just the director and had no involvement actually crafting the story.
AFAIK, Abrams won't be personally involved with ST4 in any way. He's not writing or directing it.
"expert". Ok. I exaggerated, but he likes time travel or mirror universe. Example:
11.22.63 is based on Stephen King's bestselling novel
In most of those examples, doesn't he usually have Orci or Lindelof involved? I'd say they're the ones who like time travel or alternate universes.
In all fairness, a movie making $300 at the box office would normally be considered unsuccessful.
^Oh I know that number applies to most big movies. I just think it's crazy.
Oddly enough, Saldana seems to be uncertain as to whether it is going ahead.
Sounds awesome and hard work to work on both ST 4 and Infinity War no doubt..
Hemsworth is in the AVATAR sequel, or just Saldana?
just Saldana. So maybe her role in ST4 will be severely cut back (in favour of even more Bones )
Do we KNOW that it will involve time travel? Could it be an interactive hologram or something similar?
George could simply have "fallen forward" through the rift in space time and emerged somewhere on the new Enterprise's path. No time travel in the typical sense, no need to age the actor and lots of options for storytelling.
Hemsworth could simply be playing Kirk's brother, Peter Kirk. Some sons look uncannily like their fathers. (I'm gonna remember this post and we'll see if I'm right )
For all we know (next to nothing, at this point) it could be almost anything. There might even be a chrono-synclastic infundibulum, though they'd most likely have to call it by some other name.
Apologies if previously discussed: maybe George Kirk is brought back through a Kelvinsverse Genesis device, rather than by time travel as such.
Not that it's required, but there's a Prime Universe precedent there...
^^Wouldn't that require there to be remains of George Kirk around?
Peter was Kirk's nephew. I think you mean George Samuel Kirk, Jim's brother and Peter's dad. He's already been in an IDW comic showing the alternate reality version of the neural parasite attack. (I know, I know, hardly anyone who wtaches the film reads the comics, as I've been told before. But these comics, unlike others, are made very closely in conjunction with the films.)
Technically it would - but being the Kelvinverse / timeline, perhaps a Genesis device might have been developed further away from its Prime equivalent, in an even more advanced way... etc.
I got nothing really - just speculation.
