As long as it's not on Earth it will already be superior to the recent films. I just hope they remember it's not an action show, it's an exploration show.
Well, it's being done by Kurtzman and Orci, so...
But in all seriousness, budget-wise it probably will take place mostly on the ship in space, with occasional outdoor locations for alien planets, etc.
I wonder if it'll take place in the original universe or the rebooted film universe... ?
Orci and Kurtzman's involvement, plus the fact it'll be coming out about 6 months after Star Trek Beyond (and likely a couple months after the film's DVD/Bluray release) make me think they'll attempt the first show set in the new universe. However, if it's set in the new film continuity, it'll obviously have to focus on a different ship.
Or, they could do a new show set in the original universe, though it remains to be seen if CBS/Paramount will want to split the focus between the films and TV series instead of making it all inclusive like the MCU.
So was the multiple Emmy award winning Transformers Prime. They said it was what they always wanted to do in the movies but couldn't. This might actually end up being really good. And now Orci and Kurtzman are gone and Transformers sucks again.
I don't want them dwelling on single planet too long is what I'm getting at.
They should reboot it into a new timeline like they did in the first film.
That wasn't a slight against Orci or Kurtzman.
I was referring to the fact their direct involvement with the rebooted ST film verse might make it more likely to occur as a spinoff of the films in that rebooted universe as opposed to the original universe, on a different Federation starship, etc.
I don't think the occasional mission on random planets (like every other ST series has done) is dwelling too long. It's a necessary part of that exploration aspect you were talking about. Part of that means leaving the ship, occasionally.
I'd rather they not reboot it yet again. I'd be fine with it set in either the original or new universe.
In the kind of almost slavish devotion rarely seen for properties not called Firefly, fans have never given up hope of a sequel to 2012's cinematic comic adaptation Dredd. Now though, the character's publisher Rebellion is making an official drive to show producers there's a market for more.
Rebellion has launched Bring Back Dredd, a campaign which currently has more than 136,000 signees. Shepherded by "superfans" Frank Palmer and Brian Ritchie, it's shifting focus away from a theatrical sequel slightly, and is now targeting producers of the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime, and HBO to bring it back as a TV series.
"With the success of series such as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and The Man in the High Castle, the clamour of the growing fanbase for more from the incredible world of the 2012 Dredd movie cannot be ignored," the campaign text reads. "We call on TV and movie producers to step up to the plate and give us more, either through a pay-to-view TV series or a new movie!"
The movie served as the kind of redemption for Judge Dredd that the character so often denies the criminal scum plaguing Mega-City One. Ignoring the Sylvester Stallone-headed disaster from 1996, the succinctly titled Dredd was a polished piece of action cinema that perfectly captured the fascist lawmaker from the pages of 2000 AD. Unfortunately, while it thrilled audiences and critics, it failed to set the box office alight, and a sequel has yet to materialise.
Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, is in talks with Netflix to develop a new animated series.
According to Variety, Netflix is currently considering a two-season order for the unnamed series, with each season running 10 episodes. Variety hypothesized the order could be partially shaped by the long lead-up time required for animated series.
Other details, such as the name and premise of the reported new Matt Groening project, are still being closely guarded.
You hate that it's presented in the original aspect ratio? You're getting the full picture and complaining?
Yes but during original run no HD TVs so you never had black bars. It's a minor thing but it's a peeve I don't like the black bars :lol: However it's cool if others do
It was only cropped to 16:9 because they had to make it fit on modern TVs. Most people are like you and have a fit if it's not full screen. I guess it's just that I'm used to black bars ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ There are always other sets you can get in 16:9.
