Paramount Push-Backs!

Paramount has decided to move a bunch of their slated films back a few months. I don't know why, so don't bother questioning it. Here we go...

J.J. Abrams' Star Trek is moving from its initial Christmas release to a "stardate" of May 8th, 2009. Ben Stiller's summer comedy Tropic Thunder is dropping a month from July to August 15th, 2008. Scorsese's recently-renamed Shutter Island (starring one of my favorite actors, Leonardo DiCaprio) will now hit theaters on October 2nd, 2009. There are some other additional films that have been moved back - but they involve the likes of Eddie Murphy, Renee Zellweger, and the Wayans Brothers (respectively), so I won't be mentioning them here.

This news is terrible. I just bought all six original cast Star Trek movies just so I could see what happens in the seventh one. Now I have to wait 5 more months.

NOTE: The movies with Picard are basically a separate time period, so this upcoming film takes place within the Shatner-verse, if you will.
