Is There A Future?

Berman Uncertain About Star Trek Future
Star Trek Nemesis executive producer Rick Berman told SCI FI Wire that several factors likely contributed to the film’s lackluster box-office performance, and he added that the future of the film franchise remains uncertain. “There’s no way of telling what happened,” Berman said in an interview. “I’m convinced that we made a very good movie, and I’m also convinced that the movie was promoted properly.”
Berman added, “I thought the trailers and the television spots were all excellent. It’s easy to blame that sort of thing, but I don’t think we can in this situation. I think that the competition of other films may have played some part in it, but I can’t be certain of that, either. It’s very, very hard to tell.”
Berman sounded disappointed. “Obviously, you want a film to do well,” he said. “You work for a long time, and you work for a long time, and if it doesn’t do well, it’s not fun.”
Berman went on to say that he’s not sure what the future will hold for the Trek film franchise. “There’s a theory that there was too much time [between Insurrection and Nemesis],” he said. “There’s another theory that there wasn’t too much time. I, along with the people at Paramount, need a few months of perspective and thinking about it to then decide what’s the best thing to do next. I don’t think this is like falling off a horse, and you want to jump right back on it. But we’ll see.”
