|Star Trek (2009) Enterprise|
TrekMovie reported the exclusive news on Friday:
"TrekMovie has confirmed with multiple sources that 'Star Trek Into Darkness' has been selected as the title for the 2013 sequel to J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie. This is a title that comes out of a long process of discussion amongst the creative team. As reported earlier, Paramount tested a number of titles for the film over the summer, including at least one title that did not include 'Star Trek.' Also noted in our earlier article, the title (by design) does not include a colon, like were used for the Next Generation films such as "Star Trek: First Contact" or "Star Trek: Nemesis."
Although the title hasn't been officially confirmed, the domain names www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie were both registered Friday through MarkMonitor, an anonymous domain registry service that has been used by Paramount Pictures for other official movie sites.
The Star Trek 2 title doesn't give much away about the plot, but it may reference the darkness of space or a darker plot. It may also be a reference to the "five-year mission" of the original Star Trek Enterprise to "explore strange new worlds" and seek out "new life and new civilizations."
Filming is now complete and it's in post-production. The cast has started talking about what Star Trek 2 will be like.
"It was bigger. It was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my stand point," Zachary Quinto (Spock) told The Wrap recently.
Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk) told Total Film, "Like the first one, there's some serious issues being dealt with. And I'd say the threat is even greater in this one. The force [the Enterprise crew] are met with is much more frightening. It's relentlessly action-packed and in terms of character development it goes places you'd never expect."
Star Trek Into Darkness will be directed by J.J. Abrams and star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller with a screenplay by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Damon Lindelof.
It's scheduled to be released in theaters on May 17, 2013 in 2D, 3-D theaters and IMAX 3-D versions.
