Star Trek does Pretty good on TV right now, but cinema is a whole other subject. Despite Paramount best efforts to get another movie off the ground, it has not been released in theaters since 2016 Star Trek Beyond. This is about to change — most likely — me Star Trek 4with Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and the rest of the live cast returning as their respective roles who first lived in 2009.
While talking to Deadline for his two newest films, The contractor and All the old knives, Pine briefly touched on still quite a surprise news that a fourth film with the Enterprise crew from Kelvin’s timeline was made after Beyond was considered something stupid at $ 343.5 million. While he really likes director Matt Sankman and the people of Paramount, it’s the lack of a script that really scares him after the film’s sudden confirmation. However, he stressed that he loves playing James T. Kirk and Star Trek overall, and it would be okay for me to come back. “It solidified my current career,” Payne said. “I’m honored to be a part of it. I think there are a lot of stories to tell in this.”
More interestingly, Pine said the biggest obstacle to these films was Paramount’s desire to make them huge successes the size of Marvel or even the studio. Unable to send series. “It was always that billion dollars because Marvel was making a billion; we certainly did a good job, but not the billion-dollar job they want.” It’s a critique that really stuck with the first two films, but many found it Beyond to be a better movie because it felt like old Star Trek. He added that boldly forward, Star Trek he has to stick to what is good, to make movies who addresses his followers and uses these veterans to attract newcomers. “Let’s make the film about the people who love this group of people, who love this story, this love Star Trek… if people want to come to the party, great. “
But more than anything else, Pine believes that these films should not be made on an unreasonable budget. Later in the interview, he talked about how Blumhouse managed to make money financially with their modestly budgeted films, such as the recent Invisible Man restart and the Wash away series. Horror is arguably an easier genre than sci-fi with less money, but he’s still confident that the action movie industry could learn something from horror, as he says, “These movies make a lot of fucking. money”. Although it would not be an easy solution each franchise, it would at least make more sense than constantly trying to go and chase Marvel, to end up. “Make it for a price and then sell it very well,” Pine said. “It seems that this large niche market that could be exploited could be very nice.”
Pine is right when he talks about how trying to chase Marvel’s financial success did not really work for many studios. (Some of which still tryingalthough it failed the first time.) The number of its broadcasts at the moment hitting different demographics underscores the Star Trek hits a particularly sweet spot that other big science fiction franchises are not interested in or can not. (You do not see Star Wars letting an anthropomorphic version of its various badges kill delightfully crazy holograms, I’m just saying.) If the franchise is to have real hope of succeeding again as movies, maybe it’s time to get back to basics and do what’s best: to be for the good people who travel the galaxy and are very good at their job.
