Star Trek Sequel Gets a Release Date

Just found out the other day that J.J. Abram’s Star Trek sequel now has a firm release date and wanted to share with you.  Get ready to boldly go where we left off in 2009 with a May 17th, 2013 release date.  Two things are exciting about this movie thus far.  J.J Abrams is penning the script with LOST veteran Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.  Orci and Kurtzman penned the Abram’s directed series reboot back in 2009 and are also pretty ubiquitous in TV and film today.  Also the movie is reportedly being filmed in 3D.  Wow, imagine what the Enterprise going into warp speed will look like, especially on IMAX 3D.  At this point I have no plot points to share with you but with the writing cast in place I’m expecting a sequel that doesn’t go the way of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Are you excited?
