Yeah. I'm sure the story is new. It's an altered timelinene, things will be different. I was just hoping to see a completely new story. But who knows. Maybe Cumberbatch's character won't be the focus or remotely like the Trek character we know. I'm assuming at least that'll. E the case for the latter, considering Cumberbatch's casting. I like the guy a lot. Great Holmes and was good in Tinker, Tailor, but as this character I don't know.

Hey if Pegg can be Scotty, then Cumberbatch can be him XD
I can only shake my head about their decision though.
Trek is not supposed to be like Batman, which is apparently their excuse.

Yeah. It should move forward. Something new. New stories.

Hmmmnnnnnnn.

If this is accurate then it has to be a different story entirely because the other elements supposedly stated do not tie themselves in with prior depictions.

Peter Weller as a 'CEO', Noel Clarke as a family man, the return of a character (well, two) and the as yet undisclosed role of Alice Eve (though that 'may' have become more guessable if all else is correct) and possibly Greenwood returning. Quinto filming a scene involving a Volcano etc.

Of course, these things shouldn't necessarily make sense right now until more is confirmed. They probably will in time.

Or maybe he just had a reconsideration? It's allowed you know.

I'm not really thrilled with this, but I'll wait until I see the movie before I really judge it. It's not the direction I was hoping for though.

Yeah, the alarm bells are far from ringing in my head right now because it has to be seen what actually is going on (and it had become a 50/50 anyway after previous rumours) but I wouldn't have gone that way myself either.

I don't recall the Peter Weller part. Or any news on Greenwood over the past year.

But you know, I think for the very first time since 2006 I am officially disappointed. I think it [the second spoiler] is a mistake, and a waste of a two-hour story. I don't want it to be true. And yet it isn't my vote. The fans are ST's worst enemy.

I still dare these people to make an excellent movie. They're going to have to now, because critics and audiences will be already waiting to make comparisons. They may have made their job harder and hopefully they realize it.

I still stick by what I've said about the second movie being the one that typically defines the franchise. The one that sets the characters and themes the most into focus. So it's possible that we've misunderstood what AbramsTrek was about, even while we were loving it for making ST exciting again. Maybe its mission statement really is to translate ST into something akin to a superhero movie franchise. (Though I guess between the com badges, pajamas, jumpsuits, and comments like "No, I'm from Iowa, I only work in outer space", ST has always had something of a superhero mentality to it).

In spite of reservations, I can never say this isn't interesting.

It's interesting as well because as you say, if it is correct then they have to know just how much ammo they've generated in doing so. They can't be ignorant of that. There would be no claiming as much. But you're also right that plenty of fans asked for it. Where do you decide the line of 'blame' if this goes tits up? The fans wanting and getting, or the makers for giving?

So, then the question becomes - what have they decided to do? Does that let them walk the line between the two?

I dunno.

But as ever, I won't judge it until I've seen the film. By that time other things will also be much clearer.
