I'd give all that up if he'd just start working on the long delayed Cloverfield sequel.

He's not a very good director, but this is probably the project for him. His Star Trek film made it clear what he actually wanted to be making was Star Wars.

It'll be a poor to mediocre summer blockbuster. Not as comically bad as the prequels, but not a scratch on Empire, which is the only truly great Star Wars film.

Star Wars has been ruined for a long time now.

Wasn't the Star Trek movie he did really good? From what I've seen it was only hated by really snobby Trekkies that hated how accessible it was for Star Trek. I haven't seen it, but if that's true, then I can't see this being bad. Sci-Fi seems like his best field since his most acclaimed films were sci-fi.

It was a semi-decent summer flick, but it wasn't Star Trek.

I'm sure the new Star Wars will end up being the same.

My only problem with it was the dopey villain plan.

If anything I'm only expecting a mildly okay movie that is only good for a few more watch throughs but not much else.

not gonna get my hopes up in the slightest bit that it might be a good movie.

Star Wars has always been about the latest cutting-edge special effects.

Star Trek, on the other hand, has a style which should never be altered, unless it's in a century we haven't seen yet.

Fuck J.J. Abrams, they have no reason not to get Gary Kurtz involved with this project in a directorial role. Abrams makes good movies, but Kurtz is Star Wars.

I honestly can't wait to see another Star Wars regardless of who is involved. As long as it takes place in the Star Wars universe, I will find something to enjoy about it, and I think JJ Abrams is one of the better choices for director.


It made more sense in my head.

Considering his Star Trek was basically a Star Wars movie already, this is probably good news. Abrams catches a lot of shit from the Internet for some reason, but his track record is actually pretty impressive. Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek, and Super 8 are all solid, fun popcorn movies, and though his actual level of involvement (not to mention the overall quality of the shows) might be debatable, Alias, Lost, and Fringe were all interesting, ambitious shows.

Better him than someone who would make it "gritty," "extreme," and "douchey" like Zack Snyder or a pretentious asshole who would try to "reimagine" the franchise like Darren Aronofsky or something, anyway. And whatever he does can't possibly be worse than the prequels.

So I'm cautiously optimistic.

You meant to say "A New Hope."

Also, this is potentially good news, but we'll never truly know until we see the final product.

They chose him because he is Jewish
