Paramount has announced it will release Michael Bay‘s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” on Jan. 15 and Justin Lin’s “Star Trek Beyond” seven months later on July 8, 2016.
“13 Hours” stars John Krasinski, Pablo Schreiber, Max Martini, David Denman and James Badge Dale.
The action movie will open against the Ice Cube-Kevin Hart comedy “Ride Along 2,” Chloe Moretz’s YA sci-fi movie “The 5th Wave” and the animated sequel “The Nut Job 2.”
“Star Trek Beyond,” which was previously titled “Star Trek 3,” will face some stiff competition at the box office including Illumination Entertainment’s animated comedy “The Secret Life of Pets” and the Zac Efron comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.” It also arrives one week after “Tarzan” and Steven Spielberg‘s “The BFG.”
Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto return alongside Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Simon Pegg. They’ll be joined by franchise newcomers Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella.
