NEW STAR TREK MOVIE SEES CREW REUNITED

Fans have finally got some good news (and some confirmation) about the next cinematic Star Trek movie venture.

In what can only be described as an almighty information dump yesterday, Paramount+ shared a long list of reveals for their platform, including how the service is coming to UK shores this summer.

During the Paramount investors event, both filmmaker JJ Abrams and the company's Chief Executive Brian Robbins revealed plans for a fourth in the new era of Star Trek movies.

Sadly, very few details on the actual film itself were spoken of, but they did confirm that, much to the delight of Trekkie fans everywhere, that the key crew members would be returning, which includes lead Chris Pine as Captain James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as 'Bones', Simon Pegg as 'Scottie', Zoe Saldana as Uhura and John Cho as Sulu.

All of the above names have appeared in the previous three rebooted efforts: 2009's Star Trek, 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness, and 2016's Star Trek Beyond. There's currently no title for the upcoming movie but no doubt more details will emerge as the year goes on.

There were rumors over the past few years that a fourth outing had been canned, but now it's official and that WandaVision's Mark Shakman has been attached to direct it.

Star Trek 4, as it's known right now, is slated for a 2023 release but has no firm date as of yet.
