To Boldly...Wait Longer

The Star Trek world is reeling today with the announcement that we've got to wait longer for the new Star Trek film. It was origianlly slated to come out Christmas Day 2008. It has now been pushed back to May 8, 2009.

The official word from Paramount Pictures for the move is that it has massive earning potential, and therefore is better suited to be summer blockbuster.

The unoffical word is that director J.J. Abrams has been itching to do re-shoots because, now that actors are speaking the dialogue out loud, it sounds lame. And he was prevented from doing re-shoots because of the writer's strike, cuz it would have meant re-writing the script. But now that the writer's strike is done, he is free and clear to do reshoots.

So, to all my fellow trekkies out there, you can start telling your mom you'll be home for Christmas. Star Trek, now coming in May of 2009. This is the first Star Trek film to be given summer blockbuster status ever since Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

In other movie news, here's the first picture of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine from the upcoming Wolverine solo film, also due out in 2009:

Everyone's going, "Yup, looks like Wolverine," but I'd like to point out one little nerdy detail.

Look at his claws. They're coming out from the back of his hands! Finally, they got his claws comic-book-accurate. For all the X-Men movies, they changed it so they came out from between his knuckles.

*sigh* And Mom wonders why I'm alone again on Valentine's Day.

I'll be back later today, when they post that trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
