While Star Wars is breaking box office records and winning rave reviews, another much loved franchise set in the stars is going through a bit of a crisis.
The teaser trailer for Star Trek Beyond has been met with a huge wave of negativity, even when it was shown before The Force Awakens, I was surrounded with more groans than a feeling of excitement.
Simon Pegg who co-wrote the sequel has responded to the reaction though and admitted himself, he was not impressed.
“I didn’t love it, because I know there’s a lot more to the film. There’s a lot more story, and a lot more character stuff, and a lot more what I would call ‘Star Trek stuff.”
The trailer suggested a bit of a departure from the Star Trek we knew adding to the fuel that Paramount had asked Pegg and Doug Jung to amend the original script as it was too “Star Treky” whatever that means?
Judge for yourself again…
