It looks like Justin Lin (who has worked on the Fast & Furious movies) has been chosen to direct the third Abramsverse movie.

Wouldn't have been my first choice.  yet Ive heard good things about the last couple of FF movies so lets see what happens.

I would have went for the Moon guy, personally.  But I'm not really surprised given the previous "we want it to be like Guardians of the Galaxy" info.

Considering GOTG felt way more Star trek than Star Wars to me (Seriously with the exception of Groot and Rocket it had a bunch of forehead aliens....so I dont ever want to hear anymore complaints about Trek's aliens ever again).  I'm not bothered by that statement at all.  More focus on aliens with a lighter tone...works for me.

Anyone else find it strange that the new Star Wars movie is getting the holiday release while the Star Trek movie is the summer tentpole.

According to this it's to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek (which works for the year at least).  IIRC wasn't Into Darkness originally set to launch in June or July?  Both of the other two wound up launching in May IIRC.

Not strange at all, really. The two big seasons for movies, and the studios don't want these to compete because they know there are fans of both that will want to set aside time for each.

Figured it was time to sticky this one and let the previous movie thread go.

Elba will be a good villain if they can lock him down. I'm interested to see what Pegg can do with the script.

Some of the best ToS episodes had villians, but still explored the traditional Star Trek story. Trouble with Tribbles and Errand of Mercy come to mind.

Simon Pegg
trying to make a film that can appeal to both genre fans and everyone else — but the problem is that you often end up with a finished product that appeals to neither.

I don't think it's a question of similarity or continuity in the first place but of the way how stories are being told and perhaps a little bit about the philosophy of Star Trek.

Simon Pegg was asked to make the third movie less Trek-y - despite the undeniable appeal to a mainstream audience of the two previous (Abrams) movies(!), and just because other sci-fi/action/superhero/whatever movies performed still better.

Pegg is in a dilemma because he himself wanted to do the opposite. I'd wish that Pegg could put some of his ideas into the new movie, although it doesn't bode well at all that the first script was ditched - apparently just because it was too "Trek-y". I really want to give Abramstrek a last chance before it has to be rated as a wrong turn, in an effort to make it more like a comic universe.

Here is Pegg's rant in which he complained about the "dumbing down of movies" (and about the studio bosses):
http://www.theguardian.com/culture/2015/may/19/simon-pegg-criticises-dumbing-down-of-cinema

And this is how he tries to limit the damage (criticizing your bosses and/or the customers - bad idea):

I'm not calling that guy an outright liar, but until someone besides him backs up his story, I'm inclined to believe Paramount has made no such investment in time towards a fan production. Also, shame on Trekmovie for running a story with just one source, in which the person in question is providing the sole account. We should expect better...then again this is the internet, where mere rumor of a possible idea that someone once had two decades ago, passes for a news story.

First, Paramount doesn't have a TV network, so it doesn't make sense for them to take a TV pitch for a project they have no place to air, unless they would simply back it and then get someone like Netflix to distribute it. Or unless they would co-produce the project with another company that does own a TV network. They could team up with CBS and co-produce a show, but CBS doesn't seem to be in any hurry to dip back into the Trek well any time soon.

Secondly, Paramount and CBS have historically been less than friendly with fan productions, usually settling for out right threats of a lawsuit and cease and desist orders, rather than merely asking. Granted, perhaps new management is trying to put a friendlier face on those running the studio. Also, why would they produce his script, all his material is already online, giving everything away. Granted, Star Trek usually isn't as secretive as Abrams tries to be, but the thought of a major movie studio actually producing a script that at this moment is available to read online, doesn't seem very likely. Plus, this guy is an unknown. They're not going to risk the first series after...however long it's been since Enterprise, to an unknown, no matter how enthusiastic he might be.

Third, Paramount has historically been strongly opposed to crossover interference from one series to another and especially into the movie film world. That's why it was a huge deal when Worf and the Defiant showed up in First Contact. The film and TV divisions usually don't mix and they like not to 'confuse us fans' by providing competing endeavors. We are living in the world of shared universes now however, so it's possible but even so the series would need to tie into the film franchise in a major way, which doesn't seem to be the case from what I read of his idea.

Fourth, if Paramount wanted his URL or copyright to Star Trek Beyond, which I believe this is actually about, Paramount has enough money and lawyers they could have just taken it without much trouble.

I don't want to seem overly cynical here, we all want a new series, but nothing about this says to me we should get ready for a new series to begin production. This just isn't how the business works.

Set pics of what looks like at least part of a crashed starship.
http://trekcore.com/blog/2015/08/did-a-federation-starship-crash-land-in-vancouver-for-star-trek-beyond/

That would be the bridge window/viewscreen and part of a saucer. No doubt they'll CGI in the rest of the saucer later on.

The Enterprise maybe? Maybe not. What do you all think?

I like the idea of getting to see another Constitution class ship. There's always been something appealing about seeing multiple Connie's on screen at once, no matter the version.

That being said, there could be an argument for wrecking the Enterprise in the third film, like they did in TSFP. Even though it would be a bit much, seeing as how they wrecked the Vengeance in the last film while copying TWoK...they may not want to steer too close to TSFP and kill the Enterprise out right.

Either way, it's cool to finally start getting info beyond casting news/rumors.
