If the world really ends in December of 2012, as some say the Mayans predicted, then the chances of us ever getting to see a sequel to 2009’s Star Trek reboot by J.J. Abrams are practically nil. (We know of some die-hard Star Trek purists who can, er, die with that.)
Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman has however confirmed what many of us suspected: that Star Trek 2 won’t make a 2012 release date. Now it seems that a 2013 release date is the most likely.
Competition in summer of 2013 might a bit stiff though: Iron Man 3, Superman: Man of Steel and possibly Pacific Rim (the Guillermo del Toro monster flick) and Oblivion, the sci-fi flick by the director of Tron Legacy starring Tom Cruise (maybe).
December 2013 isn’t much better though with the release of the first Hobbit movie.
We’ll see, but personally we think a release date earlier rather than later in 2013 is most likely.
