STAR TREK BEYOND Filming Has Begun

STAR TREK BEYOND Filming Has Begun

Filming of the third installment of the rebooted Star Trek film franchise has begun. Both Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana have shared photos on the set of STAR TREK BEYOND.

“Someone is preparing to emerge,” Quinto captioned the photo of himself as Spock. Meanwhile, Saldana wrote: “Trailer time #StarTrek.”

Quinto previously told Variety: “I think the five-year mission will be a part of this next film in some way,”

“We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of one of the most iconic sci-fi series in entertainment history so it’s inherently an ongoing story. But I do think that we’ll feel some sense of evolution in these characters that’s been building through the first few films.”

      From everything I’ve read so far, I’m not impressed. The red flag went up for me when Simon Pegg said Star Trek should be more like The Avengers. Really? He can’t come up with his own idea he has to copy another successful format?

        That was at the done at Paramount’s “request”.

        If they want to make lots of money, then yes, Pegg is right, it should be like one of the many comic book movie adaptations coming out these days. Think lots of mindless action and simple dialogues for the average moviegoer with a small attention span. Putting out a movie with a deep plot, intellectual dialogue, one which explores philosophical questions about life and existence, all but guarantees failure at the box office.

          I’m afraid you’re right. Some rare filmmakers manage to do the impossible (cerebral films with box office success), like Christopher Nolan. But even Interstellar got some negative reactions when people realized it was not the typical Fast&Furious/Transformers/Marvel insanity. Producers have to stop searching for a consensus and learn to target niche audiences, and adjust their expectations accordingly. It’s the only way to save the respectability of the industry.

        Actually, they’re looking for “Guardians of the Galaxy” in style and tone. I don’t think anybody ever said “Avengers”.

        I think the idea is more about developing on the expansive Star Trek universe in a similar way to what Marvel have done with the MCU and Avengers with all the super heroes having their own feature films, but every couple of years bring them together for something like Age of Ultron. Star Trek doesn’t have to exist as a one off film every 3-4 years as it has done recently. Why not have other movies that feature characters referenced in previous Star Trek films, a different crew that’s off exploring somewhere, and then bring them all together to face a big baddie.

      But Nagus! It will make profit, isn’t that what being a Ferengi is all about?

    So sad that they could miss the point of the Star Trek franchise by so much in those reboots. Everything that makes the franchise valuable – developing an appetite for science, promoting the importance of knowledge and discovery, expanding viewers’ minds about deep metaphysical concepts and the meaning of existence, promoting wisdom about important social and political dilemmas – all that has been evacuated. The influence of this franchise goes well beyond art. It has inspired real-life scientists, anticipated new technologies, and nurtured a taste for science among generations of viewers.
    Even the most beloved character of the franchise, Spock, has been completely denatured and rewritten as a fierce and overly emotional being in those NuTrek films.

    I can almost imagine the producers telling Justin Lin: “Do with Star Trek what you did with Fast & Furious.”
    How the people behind those reboots can be so disconnected is beyond me.

      Paramount has never understood Star Trek, and they don’t care about it except as a way to make money. Sadly, movie studios are no longer in the business of making art — or even of making entertainment — they’re in the business of making money.

      What we really need is for some fan with VERY deep pockets to buy the Star Trek franchise from Paramount. It would have to be someone like Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos, but guys in tech fields often are Star Trek fans. Maybe we’ll get lucky, and one of them will decide to rescue it from the money grubbers.

        CBS owns the rights now… there are several projects by fans and from actors from the different Star Trek series that are trying to get Star Trek back on TV… Star Trek Renegades looks promising… there is also other fan films: Star Trek Continues, Star Trek New Voyages/Phase II, Star Trek Axanar, Star Trek: Of Gods & Men to name a few.

          No, CBS owns the rights to THE TV SHOW. Paramount still owns the rights to THE MOVIES. It’s partly this split in who owns the rights to what the holds Star Trek back.

            Yes, you are correct, I forgot about that… “Since Viacom spun off CBS in 2006, the distribution rights for Star Trek have been split between Viacom’s Paramount Pictures for films, and CBS for anything else, including television shows. Neither company has been very forthcoming on just how exactly those rights work, leaving fans and observers to speculate.”
