OK, so this has not been officially confirmed, but there is a rumour going round as to the full title of JJ Abrams Star Trek sequel. With today marking the 46th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, now would seem as good a time as any to make an official announcement, so it could be possible we might get confirmation soon. However, being a JJ Abrams film, there is a stronger possibility that we won’t.
Anyway, ComingSoon.net is reporting that the title of the new Star Trek film will be ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’. As I said, nothing has been officially confirmed, however the domain names “www.startrekintodarkness.com” and “www.startrekintodarknessmovie” were registered on Thursday through MarkMonitor,an anonymous domain registry service already used by Paramount for films such as G.I Joe: Retaliation.
While no official synopsis has yet to be revealed, what we do know is who will be appearing in the film: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Alice Eve, Anon Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Peter Weller. Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof are on writing duties.
We hope to bring you confirmation of the title as soon as it becomes available, and maybe, just maybe in the near future the villain will finally be revealed?
Star Trek 2 will arrive in UK cinemas 17th May 2013.
(UPDATE: The title of JJ Abrams Star Trek 2 has today been confirmed as ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’. Damon Lindelof talked of the difficulties finding a title at this years Comic-Con, explaining that the number 2 could not be used (due to Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan already existing), and he also complained about using colons in the title:
“There’s no word that comes after the colon after ‘Star Trek’ that’s cool,” Lindelof said. “Not that ‘Star Trek: Insurrection’ or ‘First Contact’ aren’t good titles, it’s just that everything that people are turned off about when it comes to ‘Trek’ is represented by the colon.”
And so, Star Trek Into Darkness has now become the official title of the new film)
