The wait is finally over. Star Trek 3 finally has a new director: Justin Lin. Lin has directed quite a few different projects, but he is probably best known for his work on the Fast and Furious franchise. It’s certainly an interesting choice in director for a widely popular science fiction franchise, and with the directorial role shifting from J.J. Abrams to Lin, we’re certainly in for quite a few changes.

But what exactly can we expect? We have a few thoughts…

Star Trek 3
No More Lens Flare, But Maybe Some Suped-Up Spacecraft
With the exit of JJ Abrams, we’ll not only be saying farewell to the director who helped usher Star Trek into the new millennium, but we will also (most likely, anyway) be saying goodbye to Abrams’ signature lens flare. Personally, I was never a big fan of the Abrams lens flare, but I’m more concerned that we will be trading an occasionally-blinding lens flare for long shots of suped-up spacecraft. Abrams’ lens flare may have been annoying, but it did sort of add to the intergalactic feel of the films. Beyond hurting your eyes, the focus of lens-flared scenes was still on the characters and the dialogue. I love the Enterprise and all of the the cool space toys, but I don’t want to see the focus shift from the characters and the story to, "Duuuude, check out this sick spaceship."
