    On Cinescape.com today Rick Berman was quoted as saying that Nemesis will be ready by Labor Day, and that Paramount was considering a fall release (rather than the December release reported earlier).

    I have a feeling he's testing the waters by putting that out there, to see if anyone bites. I myself do hope they go ahead and release it in early fall... or at least not on a weekend shared by The Two Towers or James Bond.

    Anyone else think the Nemesis release will move forward?

    It'll probably be like mid-November, in time to pick up Thanksgiving Weekend viewing.

    I am looking very forward to Nemesis. More than any other movie this year. The sooner the better.

    My lil' heart's a poundin' for this one, too.

    Remember, almost always the Trek features have been released around November. At least as best as I can recall.

    From IMDB:

    #1 - 6 December 1979

    #2 - 4 June 1982

    #3 - 1 June 1984

    #4 - 26 November 1986

    #5 - 9 June 1989

    #6 - 6 December 1991

    #7 - 18 November 1994

    #8 - 22 November 1996

    #9 - 11 December 1998

    So, while the last few have been Nov/Dec releases, Trek has been a summer movie franchise, too.

    Myself, I'd go with mid-October. There's a holiday weekend in there, it's before the crush of holiday movies so there's plenty of screens available, and a good, well-marketed movie can do fairly well then. It would also be a good time to cross-promote with the start of "Enterprise"'s second season, and isn't there a DVD set planned for early October? Heck, Art Asylum may even be glad to get the toys on the shelves a month before the "Treasure Planet", "Harry Potter 2" and "Two Towers" stuff, if they finish them on time.

    I just hope the story is better than Insurrection. I found the story to that to be weak. But it will be great to see the old crew back at there post.

    I hope they don't rush it out.
