They're continuing the fine tradition of cornball titles, I guess.

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

I just hope they don't try and get cute with the logo:


Star Trek--2--Darkness

Something along those lines. I can sort of picture it in my head, and it scares me.

Uhm, yeah... And I thought "Attach of the Clones" was bad...

Sounds like some one wanted "Trek Into Darkness" (which sounds better) while someone else wanted to keep "Star Trek" in the title, so we got this hybrid. Which is too bad since TID would have fit nicely with the 3 letter abbreviation tradition .
Yeah, I'd drop "Star" too, as this novel from 1978 did...


Trek Into Darkness sounds a lot less clunky to me.

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

And we will all call it.. ITD.

Oh man, ITD really took me by surprise. I thought when they said "darkness" it was going to be GRITTY and REAL but instead it was just a freaking nebula where the lights didn't work!!

It could be much worse, after all, Christopher Nolan simply added "Rises" onto the previous title for the third entry in the Batman series.
I read that Warner told Nolan to either make it 3D or keep Dark Knight in the title (since the last one made $$$$), but who knows if that's true.

Since that sounds completely ridiculous, it's probably true. Typical Hollywood corporate logic, executive meddling and profit ahead of creativity.

To be fair, isn't there a Batman comic called The Dark Knight Returns or something like that? It's not like it doesn't have precedent.

As for the Trek title, it does feel a bit clunky without the colon and a bit ridiculous. It's as if they're trying to take all the marketing talk about the movie being darker and stick it into the title.

I reckon it's bullshit.

The REAL title will be glorious, glorious I say!
