It's official.

Paramount Pictures has set the release date for J.J. Abrams' Untitled Star Trek Sequel for June 29th, 2012, the weekend right before the 4th of July. Right now, no other film is scheduled to go up against the film on this weekend.

Most of the characters that didn't get killed off in the first film should be returning, but no concrete details about Abrams' plans are know at this time. The cast speculated to return include Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin.
