Re: Paramount officially announces Star Trek 3 for 2016

It's going to be a May release and it'll do just fine.

Looking forward to Orci's take.

if they release it in May they can have the dvd out for Sept 8.

everyones a winner!
Except, DVDs are traditionally released on Tuesdays and September 8, 2016 in a Thursday. I suppose in this case they can make an exception and release it on a Thursday, certainly there is precedent with The Hunger Games or Twilight DVDs being released on Fridays and Saturdays, and I think the DVD of Avatar came out on a Thursday itself. But this is Star Trek, and if we can't be told to wait until Tuesday, it ruins the experience of being a Trekkie. James T Kirk himself had to wait until Tuesday for anything of value on board the Enterprise B, we can wait until Tuesday of a DVD.
Anxiously, bouncing in my seat, chomping at the bit, can't wait, so eager, to have sand kicked in my face, just one more time!

September 8th, "The Man Trap", would be cool. But it's the end of summer and the start of school. what about on Christmas? Abrams wanted to launch Star Trek on this day.
I wouldn't be opposed to a Christmas day release, however, presumably people wouldn't want to go to the film that day and see a dark film (at least, as dark as ID). I'd be all for a September 8 release date except for the fact it would be a Thursday and violates the traditional Friday/Wednesday film release schedule. Would the movie industry have a problem with that?

Most movies open on a Thursday now. The last two Trek movies opened on a Thursday.

A Thursday release for a movie isn't really all that out there. In fact, many movies that are typically promoted as being released on a Friday end up having their first screening at 7:00 pm Thursday, like XI and STID as noted above.

However, a big budget blockbuster is not going to be released in September. That just doesn't happen. Such a movie would be considered marketing suicide.

Re: Paramount officially announces Star Trek 3 for 2016

Rumours are about that due to Fords injury SW7 might be put back to Memorial Day 2016 in place of Alice in WL 2
http://www.aintitcool.com/node/67758

if so I guess Trek3 would have to be Nov or Dec 2016 (so itd be similar to 2002) as I couldn't see Paramount releasing Trek the same summer as Wars (as cool as that would be)

also maybe Disney would have to move the first spinoff SW movie that was due Dec 2016 to summer 2017 (40th anniversary of SW)

what a year for SF movies 2016 is shaping up to be! - BatmanvSuperman, Trek3, XMen Apocalypse, ID4 sequel, Apes 3, Avatar 2, and maybe Prometheus 2 and SW7!!

Re: Paramount officially announces Star Trek 3 for 2016

I think thinking Trek3 will have a winter release is wishful thinking.

Do I think they want to take on a new Wars? No, but it's probably being planned as summer fare so unless Orci and Payne really raises the bar here, knocks the suits designer socks off with an explosive story they think could stand against Wars then I would be, and am, bracing for the announcement Trek 3 will be delayed until summer o' 17.

Re: Paramount officially announces Star Trek 3 for 2016

I suspect everyone in the industry and perhaps outside of it expected a 2016 release date.

Re: Paramount officially announces Star Trek 3 for 2016

I really can't see a Trek/Wars showdown taking place. You have to assume those at Paramount aren't that stupid? To use a phrase from Colonel West in The Undiscovered Country extended cut, Star Wars would clean Trek's chronometers - irrespective of individual movie quality.

The 50th mean more to a small group of fandom than it does to Paramount. If they think the best box office results will come from a delay, then they will delay it.

Thing is, after the big splash Doctor Who made with its 50th anniversary, I would imagine Paramount will want to do everything possible to replicate that for Star Trek's 50th. To do otherwise is dropping the ball in the most serious of ways.
