Question Will Star Trek XI end up like the "Lost in Space" remake?

Does anybody here think JJ Abrams' STAR TREK will end up like the 1998 Lost in Space remake?

No, in the sense that it isn't starting with the LOST IN SPACE series as a basis for a feature film, which was an infinitely weaker springboard for a franchise as TREK has proven for decades. Significant difference right there.

lost in space/thunderbirds (2004)

i do hope there will be attention to detail, and intelligence because the trailers dont show it.

The trailer makes me think of Wing Commander for some odd reason. I do hope the movie fares much better than that movie did. Even though Wing Commander did have a great musical score IMO.

At the end of the day, I will be satisfied with the movie if it has a good script. End of story. If it's not a good plot, then the film will suck no matter how good the production design is.

I find it ridiculous that people write this film off in this forum because the .4 seconds they saw of some prop in the trailer isn't "the series they remember" or some other bull****.

In the end, if I feel satisfied by the story and the actors when I walk out of the theatre, I won't give a **** about the Enterprise nor the intricate canon details nor anything else that some people will let ruin the movie for them.

No trailers do.

"Oh, the pain..the pain."

Great hopes for LIS when it came out in 1998. In fact the cast had signed up for a couple of sequels and there was talk of another TV series. All of that went away when the movie bombed. Not to worry with Star Trek. There's so much with the franchise and the re-boot will attract a new generation.

The problem with Lost In Space, I think, is that it ended in 1968, and that was it. By the time the new updated movie came out, all the fans were in their late forties at the very least and by and large there has never been a continuous, HUGE "fan base" in the vein of Star Trek, although of course all shows have a couple of small cults. That, and the fact that it seems the concept of Lost In Space simply did not interest any new blood either, is what doomed that movie.
