No Star Trek In Your Stocking This Year

Those teaser posters that claim Star Trek will beam into theaters this Christmas will be collector's items some day. Paramount has delayed the film until the summer of 2009. The 2008 summer crop of films looks like a geek traffic jam: Iron Man, Indiana Jones IV, The Dark Knight, The Incredible Hulk, Hellboy 2, X-Files 2, Quantum of Solace, and Wall-E will all be competing for your box office bucks. But Trek's only real competition in summer 2009 may be the Wolverine movie and Angels and Demons, the Da Vinci Code prequel. It's also possible that with the writers' strike finally over, J.J. Abrams hopes to do some rewrites and reshoots.
