Star Trek XII Release Date Set For May 2013... And It Will Be In 3D

Star Trek XII Release Date Set For May 2013... And It Will Be In 3D

Since we're getting closer to the filming of Star Trek XII, more news is starting roll out about the sequel in the J.J-verse. Yesterday we learned that Michael Giacchino will be returning as composer on XII and today Paramount has set the release date for May 17th, 2013. That's right folks almost a full year off from the original June 29th, 2012 release date. Let's hope the Mayans & George Lucas aren't right, because I really want to see this.

In the same news release on (yeah, I thought it was weird too) we also learn that J.J's sequel will be shot in 3D. I have to say that I'm not really sold on the "gimmick", because I've yet to see a new 3D movie that was remotely impressive. It always seems that a character randomly points to an object at the screen to sell the extra dimension. Honestly, it just takes me out of the film. 3D should be used like a good surround mix, meaning it should seem natural to the viewer. Anyway, here's to hoping for a few epic space battle's with Khan in the third dimension.

Oh, and J.J. we have two small requests for the upcoming sequel... Bring back Captain Pike and make Mary Dehner!
