J.J. Abrams, the big name of the Hollywood entertainment industry and the person behind the 11th and 12th installments of the Star Trek franchise has once again accepted the fact that there were issues with the 12th part of the franchise released in 2013 titled “Star Trek Into Darkness,” but this time on a very clear note while discussing about the same at the Montclair Film Festival with Stephen Colbert.
The director-producer of Star Trek’s two films, who is involved as a producer to the 13th part of the franchise titled “Star Trek Beyond,” which is coming in 2016, said, “We got in trouble on the second ‘Star Trek’ film with some of the fans.” He further stated, “There were too many nods to The Wrath of Khan. I’ll cop to that,” revealed RollingStone.
The 12th installment’s storyline was not liked by many due to confusion created by the character of Khan played by Benedict Cumberbatch and it was also similar to the character shown in “The Wrath of Khan” released in 1982. The theory having Khan, Bad Robot and others was very confusing to fans though the movie successfully garnered more than the previous part on the box office. Around $467 million worldwide was the total of “Star Trek Into Darkness” over 2009’s “Star Trek’s” $385 million global figure.
Currently, the director is busy promoting his upcoming another movie having that star word in it meaning “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and giving more time to it as it is scheduled to release on December 18. Though, he will look after 13th part as producer because the direction portion was handed over to Justin Lin, it seems that he will suggest Lin for making it the good one keeping every aspect in mind, so that no fan can criticize the same.
