‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ — The Real Reason J.J. Abrams Left ‘Star Trek’

Paramount
Paramount

The geek world was torn asunder when J.J. Abrams jumped off 'Star Trek' and signed on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' However, it turns out that his decision to do so went beyond simply preferring one franchise over another. According to a new report, Abrams felt strangled by legal red tape wrapped around the 'Star Trek' franchise, which prevented him from creating a true multimedia platform (and making a lot more money).

For Scotty fans, 'Into Darkness' is a big wet kiss, as our ol' Aberdeen pub crawler/inadvertent inventor of transwarp beaming is all over this movie, offering laughs, cheers and thrills.

Karl Urban Interview: Talking ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ Secret of the Tribble and More

Karl Urban Star Trek Interview
Paramount

Our long, slow trek into darkness is almost over. We've seen and reviewed the 'Star Trek' sequel and soon you will, too. (Well, you'll see it – whether your review will be anything more than saying, “hey, that was fun!” as you go out for Whoppers afterwards is up to you.)

The Federated States of Bad Robot have made a global sweep of the world's press, starting in Sydney and ending in Los Angeles. We put a call into sick bay and had the good fortune to speak with Karl Urban, back on board the Enterprise as the lovable curmudgeon Dr. Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy. Urban's take on Starfleet's finest chief medical officer is a welcome bit of comic relief in 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so much so that it took great self-restraint to keep from begging him to shout “dammit!' over the phone.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Review

Star Trek into Darkness
Paramount Pictures

J.J. Abrams is going to make the greatest 'Star Wars' movie in history.

With 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' Abrams' follow up to the 2009 'Star Trek' reboot (or continuation of the series, if you are Spock Prime) he has solidified his position as a master of propulsive, visceral filmmaking. Dude knows where to put the camera, when the music should swell, when the characters should zing each another or when they should project pathos to the cheap seats. The 'Star Wars' films are mostly gut and little brains and, unfortunately, that is what we have here. The movie still works as an exemplary thrill ride – I laughed, I cried, I cheered – but woe be to anyone who gets caught in a conversation afterwards trying to explain the overly complicated and, at times, silly plot. If you expect something a little sharper out of 'Star Trek' you may come away with some mixed emotions.
