Too bad.

But Tarantino's Star Trek is still a thing? In what kind of scenario is Tarantino's Star Trek supposed to take place? Which characters will be featured in it? Which timeline?
That's either next in line or dead. Wonder whether this is the studio's retracting the IP back to the tv format for a while.

Where will I get my Lens Flare fix from now on ? :(

Too bad, I really liked the reboot. I even liked Into Darkness!

Chris Hemsworth is now tanking movies before they're even made.

More seriously, it seems this IP just has no place in the blockbuster space of today considering its meager international box office returns

Well, at least we got Beyond out of the reboot. The only movie that actually felt like Star Trek.
What? Beastie boys and the motorcycle stuff "felt like Star Trek"?

I disagree - it felt like a Vin Diesel flick in those moments..

Though there were good parts

Anyone else remember the rumours Tarantino was in talks to direct this thing? Sounds like it was troubled from the start
You are mixing things up here. The Tarantino Star Trek movie is a different movie project. It was never supposed to be the fourth film in this series.

But of course it's questionable if it's still in the works.

i like Nu Trek but after Darkness and JJ taking up star wars i knew the writing was on the wall. maybe in five years or so we'll get a mini-reboot with the grizzled veteran OG cast and that can go into its own thing but yeah after Beyond i figured that was a wrap

It blows my mind that most people feel the latest movie felt like actual star trek. Like I've watched a completely different movie or something. It was riddled with dumb action stuff and all sorts of scenes I hated.

I'm not particularly sad this alternative timeline stuff is dead if that's what we can expect.

The old narrative just dosnt work anymore in this day and age. You gotta add some boom, action and attractiveness to it or it wont make back its money. Sadly thats the state we live in nowadays. Blame the milennials...shit everyone else does.

I just rewatched '09 the other week and it's still a fun romp, but it's also the only one I really enjoyed. Gimme the Tarantino project next.

On hindsight, they really did have some bad luck considering the timeframes in which they released in terms of trying to establish a better following for the movie franchise.

2009 -- Not necessarily that bad. Sure, there was Batman, Iron Man before then and Transformers 2 right around the corner, but it had a good start. No one else was doing high budget space adventures anywyay.

2013 -- Oops, people seem to be more interested in this whole superhero business again.

2016 -- Oops, Star Wars came back to the big screen. Y'know... the one franchise they were probably counting on not coming back when they started this whole shindig again?

That first and third movie were good so I’m happy. It’ll find a home somewhere else tho. I doubt Star Trek will be down for long.

The Kelvinverse movie casts are complete and utter dogshit.

There isn’t a thing that could be done that would make me interested in watching new Star Trek content.
Cast was great but everything else sucked balls. Abrams, Orci, Lindelof, and Kurtzmann screwed over another franchise. Beyond was an improvement largely thanks to a different director and writing team.

Unfortunate, they were moving in the right direction with Beyond. Star Trek Can't really work in modern cinemas anyway, big budget movies have to blockbusters with constant action, you just can't have a slow, plodding optimistic space drama story about ethical/moral dilemmas anymore.
Give us TNG prequels about a young Picard.
Bring back Tom Hardy to play him :P

It's a good cast. Just not a good cast for Star Trek. Quinto looked a bit like Spock. Urban sounded a bit like Bones. Yelchin was actually Russian. The rest doesn't work.

I will say, if Ron Moore and Ira Behr want to come back and give us a post Dominion War series, I might be down.

Beyond was alright, but i think I'm on board with the interpretation that Trek as blockbuster film doesn't work all that well.

With TV being as strong as it is through streaming platforms i think TV is a better place for it.

It's a bummer this is ending, but we have Picard and The Orville now. We've moved beyond the need for the reboot. Also discovery, maybe. Haven't seen it.

Sad, at least we got a good trilogy out of it, which is more that we can say for TNG and TOS.
Go watch 2, 3 and 4 again. That's an excellent trilogy.

Man I'm getting so out of touch that movie series are getting rebooted then cancelled before I even get around to watching the first movie in the series.

I haven't seen Beyond yet, so I should then? Thought people were quite disappointed in it.
It’s incredibly boring. People like it because it feels like an authentic episode of Star Trek. That’s probably why it bombed if people want to watch tv they can anytime they want at home.
