Star Trek 2 is “Probably Six Months Behind” Says JJ Abrams on the Howard Stern Show

On Tuesday, JJ Abrams appeared on the Howard Stern Show to promote his current film Super 8. During the interview Stern asked about the current status of Star Trek 2. Abrams replied, saying the movie was “probably six months behind”.

Not exactly ground-breaking news, but it does reinforce everything we’ve been hearing about the film not making the originally scheduled release date of June 29, 2012. At this point Hollywood insiders and fans alike speculate the film will be pushed back to a holiday 2012 or even summer 2013 release date.

    I’m still holding out hope for December 2012, but we’ll see.

    From everything I’ve heard, it’s gonna be May or June 2013. I rather they take their time and put out a good film than rush, just to get it out in 2012.
