Finally! And yet, still so far away…
Star Trek 3 now has an official release date, and although we know when the movie is coming - it won't be happening anytime soon!
But at least it's happening on a fateful day!
The third movie in this storied franchise will hit movie theaters on July 8, 2016, a full 50 years after the television series officially premiered on September 8th, 1966.
Paramount has also announced that director Justin Lin will be taking over for the latest installment after Roberto Orci, the director they hired after J.J. Abrams, left the project apparently over creative differences.
Justin Lin has done this sort of thing before though! He directed the most recent four Fast and Furious movies, totally revitalizing the franchise!
So we're as hopeful as ever this will be one fantastic film!
Albeit one for which we'll have to wait more than a couple of years!
