One day after the news that Fast & Furious director Justin Lin was taking over Star Trek 3, Paramount has announced the movie will premiere on July 8, 2016, according to Variety. Both announcements bring some stability to a franchise that has experienced plenty of rumors since J.J. Abrams left to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Since then, speculation ran wild on who would take the helm, including one director who came and went. The release of third movie in Paramount's rebooting of the franchise will coincide with the 50-year anniversary of the original Star Trek.
