Trek pushed back

Some sad news for Trek fans was announced this week as J.J. Abrams new Star Trek movie was uncerimoniously pushed back from a Christmas '08 release to a May 8th, '09 release date. :(

Seriously, 5 months! It's a long time I know. And while usually a reason such as 'they needed more time for effects work' is given, in this case the studio seems to have effectively said 'this film will make us WAY more money as a summer film than a Christmas film'. While I can appreciate that I suppose, it's still a bit of a bummer.

There's also some speculation that since the strike has ended J.J. is going to use the opportunity to tighten the script some. And frankly, that's something I can roll with.

Anyhow, sad but true, we're going to have to wait even longer for Trek. sigh...
