STAR TREK 3 Gets A Release Date
Yesterday, Paramount's Star Trek 3 got a new director, Justin Lin (Fast and Furious), and today it has been issued a release date. Hit the jump to find out if Star Trek 3 will be released in the fall, summer, spring or winter of 2016.
In the Summer of 2016, Paramount will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek series by releasing Star Trek 3. Today, Paramount Pictures has given the film a July 8, 2016 release date. The film will be directed by Justin Lin ("Fast and Furious"), who was announced as the new director after Paramount phased out Roberto Orci. As of right now, no other films occupy that release date, but at one time an untitled Marvel film did, but there was no mention of it when Kevin Feige outlined Phase 3 of the Marvel cinematic universe. Though, Star Trek 3 will have to contend with David Yates' live-action Tarzan and Steven Spielberg's The BFG, which open a week before. For comparison, 2009's Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness both opened in April.
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organisation has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS was directed by J.J. Abrams ("Super 8"), from a screenplay written by Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. Returning for the sequel are Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zoë Saldana, and Anton Yelchin. Joined by new cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
