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 .
TWOK already broke that tradition.
As did Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis and XI

^ Funny tradition: The Search for Spock also broke it.

re Star Trek Into Darkness, I thought The Empire Strikes Back was a lame title—at first. So....

Still waiting on official conformation, of course.

I reckon it's bullshit.

The REAL title will be glorious, glorious I say!
God, you gotta hope it's bullshit. Three years to come up with a title and this is the best they could come up with?

Probably means Mitchell is the villain, as we would see him spiral out of control as his powers grow.

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

I'm sure they'll change it...

STID just doesn't feel right for a Trek movie...

even just Star Trek: Darkness would be better than Star Trek into Darkness

It doesn't roll off the toungue right. It should be called "Star Trek: Into THE Darkness"

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

When I first saw the rumored title, I said to myself, "I'm not too sure about it."

A minute later I also said, "It'll grow on me." We just have to give it time. Once we see the first teaser trailer we'll embrace the title.

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

At the end of the day how much I love the film will have nothing to do with the title.

I do think Star Trek: Darkness is better. Kind of goes with the other one word titles, Insurrection, Nemesis, Generations.

It's impossible to fairly judge a title until having seen the film.

It would be much more familiar, that much is certain.

I really don't think that "familiar" is what we need.

That's exactly why they shouldn't do it that way.

Re: Star Trek 2 Has A New Title?

Well, I would change "Into" to just the word "In" - Star Trek: In Darkness. That way it plays better off of McCoy's line from the previous film, "Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence."

That's the problem. "Star Trek: Darkness" sounds like more of the same.

As for Generations, I often see it spelled "Star Trek Generations" without the colon and I like it that way. It's quite appropriate, given that the movie covers two generations of Trek. "Star Trek Into Darkness", on the other hand, doesn't have the same clever play on words or natural flow to it.
