In case you weren’t able to go on with your life until you found out the official title of J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” sequel, you can now breathe again. The sequel, previously untitled (as J.J. Abrams is wont to do with his movies — he’s special that way, our J.J.), will now be called “Star Trek Into Darkness”. I don’t know if that title is missing a colon or what, but that’s the word on the Interwebs.
TrekMovie has confirmed with multiple sources that “Star Trek Into Darkness” has been selected as the title for the 2013 sequel to JJ 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.”
So there you go. Now go to sleep.
