‘Transformers’ Spinoffs, Sequels Find Writers

So it looks like the new ‘Transformers‘ spinoffs and sequels have found writers for the expanding universe. The success of the Marvel movies and Marvel’s expanding universe companies are trying to use the same plan. Like most copies of a original ideas the copies are usually poor in comparison to the original.
In the article below you can see that Paramount and Hasbro has hire some impressive writers in the hope to keep the Transformer brand going. The franchise is slowly dying but not if you look at the box office recites. Story wise I have to say the Transformers have become very weak. Maybe with the group of writers now on hand things can look up.
Paramount had no comment but really does that is not happening, No.

Paramount Does Not Want The Next Star Trek Film To Trek-y

In a recent interview with Radio Times (via The Guardian),  according to Simon Pegg, Paramount was worried that the new Star Trek film maybe to Trek-y

They had a script for Star Trek that wasn’t really working for them. I think the studio was worried that it might have been a little bit too Star Trek-y,” Pegg told the Radio Times

Pegg also said,

[The Avengers], which is a pretty nerdy, comic-book, supposedly niche thing, made $1.5 billion dollars. Star Trek: Into Darkness made half a billion, which is still brilliant. But it means that, according to the studio, there’s still $1 billion worth of box office that don’t go and see Star Trek. And they want to know why.”

Simon Pegg also went on to say that Paramount is hoping for a more Saturday night entertainment like the Avengers. Paramount is suggesting that the new Star Trek movie have a feel of a western or a thriller or a heist movie with just happens to be in the Star Trek universe.

So if your a old Star Trek fan be prepared for a more Marvel looking film. Is that a bad thing? If your a share holder of Paramount then no and really if your a fan no. The new Star Trek films alternative universe so for us old guard we can have fun with both. Go and watch these new adventures and go home and watch the classic.
