    Random Star Trek connection – James Kirk and Shinzon together on screen.

    Crikey, I didn’t expect TMW to get pushed so far back. Then again, this could work out nicely as a build up to The Dark Knight Rises and Star Trek 2 for the respective lead actors.

    Well finally! This news was in “boxofficemojo” days ago, it seems increasingly clear that fans of Chris Pine are always ahead of the “powerful websites”, lol.

    And what about February? good or bad? I think they want us to wait until then to know, right? hmmmm
