Star Trek 3 Gets A Release Date



Following yesterday's news that Justin Lin will be directing Star Trek 3, Paramount has now given the third movie a July 8, 2016 release date.

2016 marks Star Trek's 50th anniversary as well.

The July 8, 2016 weekend was previously open with no other movies set to be released; Star Trek 3 will face Tarzan and and Steven Spielberg's BFG a week prior, and Ice Age 5 is due the following weekend.

Roberto Orci recently bowed out of directing Star Trek 3 reportedly due to creative differences with Paramount, but remains on as producer along with J.J. Abrams who left the franchise to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
