Star Trek 3 premieres in July 2016

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Paramount Pictures' Star Trek 3 is set to hit theaters July 8, 2016, reports Variety.

Today's announcement comes one day after the news that Justin Lin will direct the film. Lin's work includes the previous four entries in the Fast and the Furious franchise.

Star Trek 3 is the follow-up to 2009's Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness (image above), both of which were directed by J.J. Abrams, who had to leave the Star Trek series to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
