Trek Movie Release Date Moved

The eleventh Star Trek movie will now be released in the US on 8 May 2009, Paramount has announced.

The film, which features a new cast playing the original Trek characters, was originally scheduled for a Christmas Day 2008 release.

A Paramount press release says, "Star Trek is moving to Summer because it has so much box office potential. It does not need any script tweaks. They're two-thirds of the way through shooting, and we would have delivered a great movie at Christmas."
