The sequel to J.J. Abrams’ 2009 hit film Star Trek is a movie that has been shrouded in mystery for quite some time. We know virtually nothing about the plot or who the main villain will be, although actor Benedict Cumberbatch (The Hobbit Trilogy) is rumored to be playing Khan.
However, one new detail that emerged today is the title of the film, which, up until now has been Untitled Star Trek Sequel. Hit the jump to find out what title Paramount has settled on!
The title, as confirmed by TrekMovie.com, is Star Trek Into Darkness. Okay, so we still don’t know anything about the plot, except that it appears that we’ll be trekking into darkness. Hmm…
However, it is interesting to note that, by design, the title does not have a colon. Other Trek films in the past have used a colon after the title, such as Star Trek: Insurrection, or Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. TrekMovie does indicate that Paramount is still working on just how exactly they will roll out the title, so it could end up with a colon in the end. But for now, no colon.
What do you think of the new title? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below!
Star Trek Into Darkness, directed by J.J. Abrams, stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg, John Cho, and Bruce Greenwood. The film is slated to hit theaters nationwide May 17, 2013!
