Paramount has decided to push back the release date for Star Trek Beyond.
The film will now be released two weeks later on July 22, 2016 instead of July 8, 2016.
The reason cited for the short delay is that Paramount feels the later July release date for Star Trek Beyond is better after seeing the success of the recent Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, which had a similar later July release.
Justin Lin is currently filming the third film of the new Star Trek franchise which stars Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Sofia Boutella and Idris Elba.
