I have little to no hope for this movie, starting with the fact that any Star Trek movie that refuses to use the words “Star Trek” on the posters out of some weird sense of shame are already self defeating before reaching the cinema.
That it looks like the made the same mistake with Idris Elba as X-Men: Apocalypse did with Oscar Isaac–making the handsomest man in the film utterly unrecognizable under layers of prosthesis–only serves to deepen that suspicion.
It doesn’t help that Elba says “He’s a very complex character–you can tell right away, that’s a bad guy!”
Complex, huh? Ok then.
