Will Smith in Trek? What the fucking fuck is Paramount thinking here?!?!?!

/Ok, I know that I talked shit on DC for their casting for Batman and it seems I'm gonna probably eat crow on that. So... I'm doubling down and hopefully I am equally as surprised by the trailers if it actually happens.

Is Quentin Tarantino directing it?

Not sure why the feel they need to bring in Will Smith?

Outside of bad boys he’s not really a huge draw anymore.

Nobody gives a shit about Star Trek. Too old. For some reason people care about Star Wars still, which Ill never understand but how about someone start a new intergalactic opera movie.

Id rather see the 5th Element 2.

Star Trek is dead, the current crop of people in charge have no clue what the show is really about.

Meh. I'll give it a look. I'm a sucker for Trek.

I HATED the Chris Pine casting, but in the end (IMO) he played it great.

Zachary Quintino to a lesser extent. I didn't figure he could hang, but dug him as Spock.

I'm sure everyone hates that iteration of Trek, but it worked for me.

Beyond actually gets a LOT of love amongst the fans.

Karl Urban is great as Bones, as well.

While Pegg gets criticized by the fervent Trekkers for his portrayal of Scotty (his Scot accent is different, apparently). He is beloved for the screenwriting he did to turn a Kurtzman actionfest into a ponderous/introspective movie in Beyond (love the character pairings/foils in that movie).

The Khan reboot gets rightfully **** on for Into Dumbass, but it was a perfectly fine reboot otherwise with some real high moments. I vastly prefer it to the SW reboot, for instance.
