Title Possibly Revealed?
 
While it's just a rumor, this is off Coming Soon:

Tomorrow, September 8th, marks the 46th anniversary of Gene Roddenberry's "Star Trek", but ComingSoon.net is celebrating a little early with a juicy rumor to share. We've been been told that the 2013 J.J. Abrams sequel has chosen a title and will hit theaters as Star Trek Into Darkness.

Although we have not yet been able to officially confirm said title, the domain names www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie were both registered yesterday through Markmonitor, an anonymous domain registry service that just so happens to have been utilized by Paramount Pictures for recent URLs like their official G.I. Joe: Retaliation site.

If it's legit, I like it. It would also seem to fit with the rumors of

Seems like a lame, not so subtle way of attaching itself to the current "everything has to be dark and gritty" phase the movie industry is going through.

Hope it's not the title.

sounds more like a game title than a movie title to be honest...

I hope it's just a placeholder, or it will be the worst title a Star Trek movie ever had!

God I hope that really isn't the title. What a lame, anti-climatic title that will be if it was true.

I see it now... it'll be 'shortened' on forums and websites everywhere to STID... ugh

At one point I think they said they had confirmed Khan as the villain plus a Nimoy appearance and then they had to take it back. I wouldn't put too much stock in their "sources" until you see something official.

I'm remembering that very thing, yes I am. It's also true, however, that TrekMovie had a reliability track record on the last movie which was hugely better than anyone else's, so I still tend to give their say-so a little more weight than most. Time will tell whether that trust is misplaced.

As an aside, just spotted this on Twitter:

^ They did say that they wanted to avoid another title with a colon. This one sounds a little forced though, assuming it is the title.

They should have just called it Darkness.

It does. Honestly I assumed the title would be something Star Trek themed but without the words 'Star Trek', like Starship Enterprise or Captain Kirk or Khan or something, a bit like how the Nolan films abandoned 'Batman' altogether after the first feature and replaced it with a common nickname for the character.

Star Trek Into Darkness isn't a good title, and having a colon wouldn't change that, although I can sort of see what they're going for - a star trek into darkness, making the franchise name part of the title, rather than serving as basically a franchise label (leading to such incongruous names like Star Trek: Deep Space Nine).

So yeah, not wild about the title, but I did really enjoy the last Star Trek movie, (and I liked the titles of Star Trek: Nemesis and Star Trek: Insurrection, and look how those turned out) so we'll see. Or something.

Ech! :ack:

Go back to Khan, please. All is forgiven. I like the Khan idea now, honest.

They should call it Star Trek: All You People Bitching About Khan, Are You Happy NOW?

You know, back in 1982, people probably complained that "The Wrath of Khan" sounded too pulpy . . .

"They're trying to turn STAR TREK into STAR WARS!"

Lets be honest, as a whole, the trek community is volatile, so NO title would satisfy the masses.
