Star Trek Beyond pushed back two-weeks to battle King Author

The next “Star Trek” film won’t be coming out on July 8th, instead, Paramount Pictures has pushed-back the release date of the film to July 22, 2015.

The move will have Paramount Pictures’ “Star Trek: Beyond” going against “King Author” from Warner Bros. Pictures. Also opening that week is the FOX animated film “Ice Age: Collision Course”.

This will be the third-installment to the rebooted “Star Trek” franchise, the film’s star Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto.

NBC first launched the original television series 50 years ago. The television show first debuted back on September 8, 1966 and only ran for three seasons, but it was enough to become one of the most recognizable television franchises across the globe.

Directing “Star Trek: Beyond” is Justin Lin, a new director to the series. It was “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams that directed the first two “Star Trek” films. The first premiered in 2009 and the sequel hit theaters in 2013.

It has been reported that Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto have both signed on to do another “Star Trek” film in the future, depending on the success of the third film, but more information on that project is expected to be released at a later date. The last film, “Star Trek Into Darkness” grossed over $460 million worldwide.
