Release Date For JJ Abram's 'Star Trek' Pushed Back To 2009

The revamped Enterprise won't be making a landing on Christmas day 2008 as originally planned. Instead, the release date for the reboot of the franchise has been pushed back to May 8, 2009.

This move comes within days of the writers' strike officially being over, and we may see this with other big name projects as part of a larger scheduling shuffle within studios.

J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek', which takes fans back to the days of a young Kirk and Spock, is now scheduled for the Thursday before Mother's Day.

The only competition around the release date is Fox's 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', which should be out May 1, 2009, and Sony's prequel to Da Vinci Code called 'Angels and Demons'.

Abrams' had commented that he was unable to make changes to the script as they were shooting during the strike, even when he came up with a better idea, because he was not allowed to write. Now, with the writers' strike over and the release date pushed back, you can be sure, you will see those "better" ideas happen -- which can only be a good thing for 'Star Trek' fans.
