Star Trek 2 (2013): "Into Darkness" Might Be The Title


1597 J.J. Abrams has been running a pretty tight ship with his newest Star Trek film.

He's erected barriers to keep the paparazzi away and sworn the actors to secrecy, and we don't even have a title, yet!

However, that might be changing as Paramount has registered a couple websites that might reveal the title to be "Star Trek Into Darkness."

Both www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie have been registered.

TrekMovie also confirms the title, and previously writer Damon Lindelof has stated they won't be naming the movie "Part 2" or going the semi-colon route, but something along the lines of the Christopher Nolan Batman films.

So does the title "Star Trek Into Darkness" give us any clues as to the plot? It is reminiscent of "going where no man has gone before" i.e. outer space, but it could be a clue as to Benedict Cumberbatch's character, who has been recently said to be the all-powerful Gary Mitchell.

The news of the new Star Trek sequel title also comes on the 46th Anniversary of Star Trek.

The as-of-yet unnamed Star Trek sequel has a May 17th, 2013 release date in 3D, is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Chris Pine as Capt. James T. Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov, John Cho as Hikaru Sulu and Benedict Cumberbatch as an unnamed villain.
