There’s been a huge amount of interest in exactly when Star Trek 2 might reach our screens, largely because while Paramount was keen to get it into production the moment the first film hit it big at the box office, JJ Abrams and the writers (Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof) have taken their sweet time putting things together.
At one point the studio felt confident enough to set a summer 2012 release date, but it soon became apparent that Abrams simply wasn’t going to be ready to get it in cinemas by then. However now Paramount has resheduled things, and with shooting expected to start in the next few months (many sources say January), a new release date has been set – May 17th, 2013. That’s only confirmed for America so far, but presumably it’ll be the same date over here.
Deadline reports that Paramount was quite to jump in when Sony movied Roland Emmerich’s Singularity off that date. It’s also said that Abrams will be making the movie in 3D, which could certainly be an interesting new look for the space tales.
