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

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.

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?

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.

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.
