At CinemaCon, Paramount announced two new films for the long-running Star Trek franchise.
During the presentation, Paramount CEO Jim Gianopolus mentioned a few of the studio's upcoming projects, including new additions to franchises like Cloverfield, Mission Impossible and Transformers. He included Star Trek in this list, clarifying that two films were in development.
At the time of writing, it's unclear if both films are set within the universe of J.J. Abrams' earlier films, or if one of them is related to the previously announced Star Trek film from Hateful Eight director Quentin Tarantino. Additional details are being kept under wraps.
When Star Trek Beyond released in 2016, Paramount soon followed with the announcement that the fourth film in that franchise would bring back Avengers star Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk via time travel. Additionally, it remains to be seen how the films will handle the role of Chekov following actor Anton Yelchin's death.
Beyond the news of the two Star Trek movies, Paramount had no shortage of sequel and spinoff news at their presentation. The studio revealed footage from both Mission Impossible: Fallout and the Transformers spinoff film Bumblebee, which has garnered fairly positive feedback on social media. There was also the news of early April's sleeper hit A Quiet Place, which has a sequel in development.
