Paramount has bumped back STAR TREK BEYOND by two weeks, pushing it from July 8 to July 22, and the move could have a major impact on the film's box office potential.

Warner Bros. has secured all the IMAX screens for its July 1 release of David Yates' TARZAN starring Alexander Skarsgard, leaving none for the third "Nu-Star Trek" flick. The movie will get an IMAX run with the release date shift, however it will still have to share screens with Guy Ritchie's KNIGHTS OF THE ROUNDTABLE: KING ARTHUR (which might be getting a new release date as well, according to THR), and will also open against ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE, the fifth installment in the animated franchise.

In addition, STAR TREK BEYOND will now be in theaters a week after the release of Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS, and a week before BOURNE 5 is scheduled to open. How much do you think the film will earn in its debut weekend?

STAR TREK BEYOND began principal photography back in June with Fast and Furious 3-6's Justin Lin behind the camera, with new cast members that include Sofia Boutella (KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE) and Idris Elba as the movie's villain.

They should honour 'Star Trek' by pushing it back to the 23rd century.

Is it me or does next summer seem to be incredibly crowded with big budget titles.
I know summer is the busy season for movies but this year there was only 1 title a week, next year looks like multiple titles every week.
