    Also, as silly and annoying as it can be to die-hards to have hordes of fan girls jumping into a new genre just to see a hearththrob/favorite actor, numbers will I bet be extra good especially in the UK (but also worldwide) among those who've never see a Trek movie ever. The Batch has a pretty serious fanbase that would see anything he's in multiple times (and drag their boyfriends)--not to say that there isn't some serious nerdy-girl overlap in the fanbase already. (And, yes, I'm sure he has plenty of male fans, too, just generalizing)

    I spent a few minutes digging, and found a 2007 interview which is cited by several Trek reference sites as evidence that the movie title was always going to be simply "Star Trek", but it reads to me as Orci and Kurtzman saying only that they hoped that's the way it would be. I also recall a fair amount of fan speculation on possible alternate titles or "Star Trek: ______" titles filling in the blank with tag-lines from posters (ex: "Star Trek: The Future Begins"). I'm pretty certain, though I haven't tracked it down yet, that I remember an official final statement concerning the title coming sometime after the announcement in December 2008 that all work had been completed and that the film was locked - quite late in the game, anyway.

    I do beleive you are right as I reflect back. So unless the title gets leaked I will have to wait.

    I imagine there will be a teaser trailer at Comic Con. Perhaps that's when they'll release the title as well?

    I hope so. And I hope it's a better name than "The Dark of the Moon"

    With the level of suck of most movies, it will do very very well, and if they are smart enough to open it in march like the hunger game it will set records because when nothing else in the theater, records broken!! Too bad TV is having such trouble making anything good since the original series, probly because it was too free enterprise and macho for the exec that don't get that THAT is what is so missing today from TV. Be the only macho game in town with strong male characters and the theem fo galactic discovery and power fo schience and human enginuity and you will win win win Keep too havily to the slacker track and you will end up with nothing.

    I'm going into stasis.

    See you all in 360 days (I will need some time to bathe and eat before heading to the cinema).
