    It comes out in two weeks and its still not rated by the MPAA. Which means they are either arguing their case to try and get it from R to PG13 or its not finished editing yet and been sent to be rated.

    Maybe they are cutting Chekov out because seeing the poor young fella that got crushed will depress people. :dontknow:

    How many more of those Fast and Furious movies are left again?

    An R rated Star Trek would be pretty great

    There are some VFX issues that were resolved, and I was told there will be a dedication to Anton Yelchin as the first credit at the end of the movie.

    Having Rihanna music in the soundtrack makes me think this shit has officially jumped the shark.

    Black lives matter are planning protests, not enough African Americans in the movie, like Jackie said
    "They ain't working in the future either"

    Watch True Detective season 2 to witness this director's ""abilities""

    It's gonna be a total trainwreck, feel bad because I actually liked both the first 2.

    I think they are holding on to it to avoid killing it's opening heat.

    If you liked Into Darkness, then maybe trainwrecks are your thing.

    I've never watched any Star Trek before so I think that's why I was fine with it. I watched the original Star Trek movie about Khan after watching Into Darkness, with my family member, to give me context.

    whatever this one turns out to be, I bet it will make Into Darkness seem better . It looks really bad.

    Star Trek can't get back on TV fast enough. It has never been a great movie franchise....it is much better on television. The Abrams movies were an abomination to Trek fans.

    An R rating would hinder it's box office. It might have gotten an R rating and they had to edit it to get a PG-13.

    Will they have Chekov and Kirk looking into each other's eyes as they fly separate spaceships with Chekov flying off into a sunset?

    A couple red flags:

    1. trailer didn't look great

    2. JJ Abrams replaced with Fast and Furious hack

    I beg to differ. Deadpool did gangbusters business as an R. Teenagers and kids will still see the movie
