STAR TREK 3 to Open July 8, 2016; In Time for STAR TREK’s 50th Anniversary

Just a day after announcing Justin Lin as the new director for Star Trek 3, Paramount Pictures has set a release date for the film.  A couple of weeks back, we learned that Roberto Orci was ousted from the position due to creative differences and now Fast Five’s Justin Lin is at the helm.

The studio just set Star Trek 3 for a July 8, 2016 release, two months before the franchise’s 50th anniversary.  It’s currently free and clear of competition, but that’s a prime summertime spot right there, so that will likely change soon. One can assume that now that we have a release date and director we will get a lot more details in the coming months.
