Paramount Comments on Star Trek Move

Paramount has commented to the BBC about the move of the new Star Trek move from Christmas day to May 08, 2009.

From the article:
"Summer is where you see the Star Wars and the Transformers," said studio spokesman Michael Vollman. "Star Trek is in that league."

Paramount insisted the decision was a vote of confidence in the production and was not related to the recent Hollywood writers' strike.

"Star Trek is in fantastic shape. This is all about box-office potential," said Mr Vollman.

The film had been in production without its screenwriters available to make revisions.

The studio is aiming to release Star Trek on 8 May 2009, putting it in the middle of some strong competition.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, is scheduled to open a week earlier.

And a week after Star Trek will come The Da Vinci Code prequel, Angels and Demons.
