Star Trek 12 Gets Release Date

I'm not sure if its Star Trek 12 or Star Trek 2, but the release date is June 29, 2012.

http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2010/01/11...-nothing-else/

UPDATE: Paramount has confirmed to MTV that the projected release date for the "Star Trek" sequel is indeed June 29, 2012.

This counts as news, but there's not much to it. We all know there's a "Star Trek" sequel coming. Hell, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, writers/producers of the May reboot, were talking about sequel possibilities as far back as the week after the first movie came out. Now we have a date to pin our hopes to: June 29, 2012.

Nothing else is known or announced, so don't ask. Maybe director J.J. Abrams will return to helm the sequel, maybe he won't. Maybe Khan will be the villain, maybe not. For all we know, the plan is to give us an epic "Star Trek Meets Star Wars" crossover. Could happen, right?

The news comes from a variety of sources, including Ain't It Cool News and Box Office Mojo, but there's no Paramount-issued press release that I can find. The information ran through some trustworthy sources, but we've yet to receive comment from the studio directly.

Regardless, there really hasn't ever been any doubt that we'd be seeing more "Star Trek." Abrams' take on the series made it friendly to an entirely new, much wider audience than its ever known before.

Were you anything less than certain that a "Star Trek" sequel was coming eventually? Where would you like the story to go from where it is now? Any specific hopes for the sequel?

Game of Thrones is produced overseas, where it's far less expensive to film, no unions, etc. and it still costs $3.5 to $4 million per episode to produce. So if you do the simple math, you're looking at $48 to $52 million per season.

To do a new version of Star Trek, you're easily looking at $5-6 million per episode because it would be filmed in Los Angeles on the Paramount with tons of VFX.

For comparison, TNG cost nearly $3 million per when it went off the air in 1994 and Paramount could no longer afford it.

Would it have to film in LA? Couldn't they farm it out somewhere else to cut costs?

I doubt that Paramount would do that because it's one of their highest profile properties. Then of course, you're looking at the added expense of housing actors and a crew six months out of the year, which becomes very expensive rather quickly.

That's especially difficult for a show with a limited audience on what would most likely be a syndicated or non-premium cable network.

You make it sound impossible. How did they do the new Battlestar Galatica so well? Great stories and the special effects about as close to real as most movies, a talented cast and you'd actually heard of a couple of them. That show didn't have a fraction of the following Star Trek does.

It cost nearly $2 million per episode when it went off the air. I don't think that SyFy has attempted anything as ambitious since.

With Star Trek, you're going to pay at least $2 million in salary alone given the sheer number of cast mates and necessary star power in order to pull off Kirk, Spock and Bones.

If the show is successful, those salaries will double in no time.

Ironically, the last time Battlestar Galactica was on SyFy was the last time I watched SyFy.

Overseas earnings rarely play into the reasoning behind producing and funding a Hollywood movie. Banking on non-Americans to get behind American films and concepts, especially in the wake of a non-movie star type of film such as Star Trek, is not the type of gamble that studios and producers like to make.
I don't know.

SFX extravaganzas seem to consistently draw big overseas. I mean even 2012 made a ton of money didn't it?

People don't need a translator to understand a spectacle. Obviously you know more first hand than I, but even still it seems surprising that very wealthy and intelligent people overseeing these enormous investments would overlook this.

By the way, did anyone read the Playboy interview with Abrams last month? He was asked about the direction he would take the universe, and he wouldn't really give an answer, but it was implied that he didn't like the storytelling or "ideas" of the original movies. After the discussion on him in regards to what he's done with Star Trek, chew on that for a bit thinking about him and Star Wars.

Maybe it just means he didn't like the Ewoks. I know I didn't really care for them.
