The Star Trek Sequel Titled Star Trek Into Darkness
The sequel to Star Trek has been one of the most well guarded film productions this year. J.J. Abrams is notorious for secrecy as he presents audiences with his trademark “mystery box.” But it seems like Paramount Pictures doesn’t feel the same way about mystique as Abrams because they may have unwittingly divulged the secret title to Star Trek 2. So instead of calling it Star Trek 2 or the sequel to Star Trek, we may now call it Star Trek Into Darkness.
The sleuths at ComingSoon.net have found out Paramount Pictures recently bought the website domain names for www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie.com, which naturally led them to believe the title for the sequel film is, in fact, Star Trek Into Darkness.
While there’s been no response from Paramount, several other sources have now confirmed that this is indeed the title and that yes, there is no semicolon involved. Apparently it really is supposed to read like a complete sentence “Star trek into darkness.”
It seems fitting that all of this Star Trek news comes on the heels of the 46th anniversary of the launch of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek TV series in 1966. Google has even paid tribute to the iconic sci-fi milestone with their Google Doodle on the front page of Google.com. Earlier in the week, actors Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto each talked about the general tone of the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness and their thoughts mirror the “darkness” of the new would-be title. Benedict Cumberbatch has also teased the identity of the villain role he’ll be playing in the sequel.
Star Trek Into Darkness (if this is the final title) will hit theaters everywhere on May 17th 2013 in 3D IMAX.
