Well I can't see them doing another TV series with the original cast. So hopefully this new movie will leave room for more original pursuits.

Yeah, I wouldn't expect a TV show with the film cast, so it probably will, when it comes, be something different again.

I don't think I'd get my hopes up for another series. Let's get through the one flick first.

WE'll Probably Get A Few Transformers Audience, Just Like Trek Gave Cloverfield. That Will Definitly Help!

There are a lot of folks who think Star Trek has gotten too big for TV, including Nimoy. If this movie flops, I doubt it will mean the end of Star Trek, which, by definition, has to include it's fandom part.

If the movie flops, then I reckon that's it for Star Trek. At least, in terms of original productions. The novels may linger on, and maybe a comic or videogame or two, but certainly no more movies or TV shows.

And if things go badly, then frankly I'd prefer to let it lie than make further clumsy-but-well-intentioned attempts to revive it again.

If you consider Cloverfield a blockbuster, at least you have some numbers to compare.

It was made with a budget of $25 million, broke the record for movies that opened on MLK weekend with $46 million, grossed $80 million by April the first weekend in April, and made a total of $170 million to date. Of the movies released in 2008, 31 movies did better than Cloverfield.

The Star Trek movie most likely cost more to produce, if for no other reason, there's actors in this movie that people actually heard of.

This movie will make money and I think the even the casual fans will be curious enough to go see the movie in the theater.

I guess we'll see.

I think Star Trek will keep coming back. Anytime a fan gets a job in hollywood there will be a pitch.

But I think this movie should do wel. When the DVD comes out that will probably sell well too.

Default it's only my opinion but...

if the movie fails then Paramount ought to consider handing it off to the producers of Stargate or Battlestar Galactica, only then will we see it developed into a fully-fledged series that will be awesome in its vision and scope.
