    Nice, on those days I really miss the IMDB forum that was really good for this kind off thing;). One thing to point out all the flaws and fails, but I have never witnessed fans going back and apologize for being wrong with their initial criticism. That is the fun part of this reasoning, if you are right you can point out how much made the first call, if is good everybody will be so cheerful and happy that no one goes back to look up who was wrong, you can't loose with pessimism.

    In 20 years people will wonder "How on Earth did The Book of Henry fail?" It will for sure become a cult classic.

    I really start to think people really want Lucasfilm to fail with Sequel Trilogy. But, anyway, I think sacking Collin right now would be stupid. He has recommendations from Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Brad Bird - all of which are either a big deal in Lucasfilm and Disney, something that Josh Trank didn't have. Secondly, he finished a script for Episode IX - that maligned Boba Fett film didn't even have a story pitch. Thirdly, Episode IX's production will start in half a year - that's not a lot of time to search for a new director that will have a completely different vision of the film and would undoubtedly push the production back for at least a year and Lucasfilm doesn't want this to happen at all. Josh Trank was fired at a time that pushing back the production didn't really matter. Besides, it would be just disrespectul to Collin to sack him after the amount of work and heart he put into this film, especially after a hit that was Carrie Fisher's death.

    Steven Spielberg. Love to see him direct a SW film before it too late.

    Oh no need to feast on little crows, that was just a general thought.
    Lets's go back a year, T1 most of the film reshoot "everything is ruined including my childhood" ect. Suspiciously silent here. The apology line was much shorter then the fan outcry.

    It could be a possibility now but he couldn't legally direct ROTJ before

    His previous films; Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed weren't considered failures, and were positively received by most critics. One apparently bad film is not enough to warrant his removal from the project. he never would have gotten the role of director and co-writer in the first place if Lucasfilm didn't think he was up to the task/ like what he was presenting them with.
    He never will, it's been made abundantly clear. The closest we came was ROTJ, and he also refused to direct any of the prequels. He recommended Zemeckis and others in his place, but they refused to direct the prequels too. If Spielberg recommended Trevorrow, then I think it'd be wise to trust his judgement.

    Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall might be one of the tightest circles in Hollywood.
    Spielberg told Frank about Colin for JW.
    Then Spielberg and Frank vouched for him to Kathleen.

    He's going nowhere.

    Hey folks. I was not a fan of Jurassic World, but mostly because that franchise is very redundant. We all know blast is going to hit the fan, dinosaurs are going to eat a bunch of people, and somehow a small group will make it out alive. It's completely formulaic and my disdain for the film had more to do with the tired formula.

    I can't speak to Book of Henry because I haven't seen it, but it doesn't sound good. Sometimes filmmakers take risks and it just doesn't work out.

    That said, if you have your doubts about Trevorrow's talents as a director, might I direct you to a smaller film he made a few years ago called Safety Not Guaranteed. There is no other way to say: great film! It has an original story, complex characters, and is beautifully directed. If you haven't seen it I would encourage you to watch it. You'll probably feel a lot better about him directing IX after you do.

    I hope that KK and LFL give him a chance. I get the feeling that these SW films are a huge collaboration in terms of how the story is presented. Trevorrow has KK, the Story Group, and many brilliant minds at LFL that will contribute to this final film of the Sequel Trilogy. Simply saying, I don't think there is a chance that Trevorrow will be allowed to Blast this up. Worst case scenario, extensive reshoots and the film is slightly delayed.

    Just my opinion and I enjoyed reading all of yours.

    Alfonso Cuaron should have gotten the job, but I think Trevorrow will do fine. (epic fail)

    safety not guranteed is the reason he has gotten these blockbusters and thats what worries star wars fans. he actually got that idea from a newspaper article he read about the very subject where someone really put an article about what the movie is absed on. He did a great job on it and it's one of my favorite indie movies. for wahtever reason, he got on a-list radars and lucked into a job which he did alright in. he only got IX because JW made so much money at the BO. It helps that he is a creative person as well. Like I had said in an earlier post, he has the backing of an entire story group, a conglomerate that works to interanlize everything, and he will be scrutinized by the company itself before us fans. The movei won't get delayed but they are sort of playing with fire by hiring him. i know some thing about the book of henry and its well intentioned but some people simply might not get it similar to the b&w shakespearean movie joss wedhon made around 2012/2013 in his backyard. my general point is that it is a two way streak with positivity and negativity going on and Disney wouldnt let him direct just because but won't fire him because of contracts and the fact that he (maybe) is allowing them to bring it home for him story wise.

    That and drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. (Drug abuse has happened before on-set of Star Wars movies, but they've been hush-hush about it. Trank being drunk and high all the time while filming wasn't a secret at that point.)

    Regarding Trevorrow, he's not leaving the movie and he won't be getting fired. At most, I can see him stepping back from directing the movie and claiming that he wants to focus on getting the script right, since he's working on that too. It should be noted that he didn't write The Book of Henry, which is where several - but not all - of that film's problems apparently lie.

    yeah he and his dogs even destroyed his house that the producers rented for him. with producing a movie, the directing is just as responsible as the writing. I doubt colin would vountarily step back by now especially after such glowing recommendations

    Again, the nuclear scenario I see happening is that his story and script sticks (possibly with some revisions) but he cedes the director's chair to someone else. Me, I'm pulling for Patty Jenkins if he does get replaced.

    It ain't scheduled just yet (but it will be made, make no mistake), and I'm guessing the earliest DC could have it out would be 2020. They could try for 2019, but I think they won't since they're going to have to do Shazam, Batman, and at least one other movie that year. Bear in mind that they haven't officially signed her on for the sequel when it happens, but she'll almost certainly be in the director's chair based on the accolades that the film has received.
