Paramount Sets ‘Transformers 5,’ ‘Star Trek 3′ and ‘G.I. Joe 3′ For 2016


Although fans are gearing up for the June 27 premiere of Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, Paramount Pictures is already looking ahead to its 2016 sequel.

It’s part of a 2016 slate revealed today at CineEurope in Barcelona. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio also plans to release Star Trek 3, G.I. Joe 3, Hansel and Gretel 2, Paranormal Activity 5, Timur Bekmambetov’s Ben Hur, and the return of Eddie Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop.

Meanwhile, TheWrap reports that Universal Pictures has delayed the release of the next installment of the Bourne franchise from Aug. 14, 2015, to July 15, 2016. The sequel to 2012’s The Bourne Legacy will see Jeremy Renner reprise his role as Aaron Cross.

    A new Trek movie had BETTER be out in 2016 (it’s only Trek’s 50th anniversary after all)…

    Let’s just hope it’s better than the previous two.

    Generally, you don’t want a sequel to be worse than its predecessors.

    When we will see a GI Joe Vs. Transformers movie?

    The last two are the real bad ones (because they are Star Wars movies in disguise). Hopefully the new film will get back to Boldly Going, rather than senselessly propelling the Chosen One up Starfleet’s ranks and totally sweeping all his errors and self-made-problems under the rug.

    Let’s see here…

    So we are going to have…

    – Gods of Egypt
    – Ben Hur
    – Prometheus 2
    – Warcraft
    – Beverly Hills Cop 4
    – The Mummy
    – Batman v Superman
    – Captain America 3
    – Alice in Wonderland 2
    – X-Men Apocalypse
    – Amazing Spider-Man 3
    – How to Train Your Dragon 3
    – Finding Dory
    – Angry Birds
    – The BFG
    – Independence Day 2
    – Tarzan
    – Untitled Marvel Film
    – Bourne 5
    – Ice Age 5
    – King Arthur
    – Planet of the Apes
    – Smurfs
    – Lego Movie
    – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Harry Potter)
    – Star Wars VII

    In addition to Transformers 5, Star Trek 3 and G.I. Joe 3…?

    No offense to the movie companies but… Why is everything being released in 2016? Are they not worried so many potentially good films released in quick succession will cannibalize their own profits?

    I usually want to see about 3 movies in a year, which are usually sci-fi in origin. This year I have seen 4 and I’m still not done with Guardians of the Galaxy and The Hobbit. I haven’t seen The Lego Movie because I don’t have the money to see everyone movie and I want to see Godzilla more than once. I do agree with you about 2016, it seems there are too many movies!!

    Nah, every Trek movie has its flaws that Trekkies can find stuff to nitpick on. Every single one probably always will.
