Sequel Title: Star Trek Into Darkness
 
Soo.... the name of the movie will be called Star Trek Into Darkness. I'm unsure about this title, since it seems to veer into something sinister.

It's the way of things to go into darker territory--Star Wars did it with The Empire Strikes Back--but the movie itself need not necessarily be bleak and depressing. It could be that the stakes could be higher, the action and the drama could be more intense, and the villain could make Nero look like a nice guy in comparison, IMO.

I might need to live with it a bit and get some context on the reasoning...............I'm not instantly big on it as a title.

How blunt. Anybody remember the times when they used the words of The Bard to name their flick?

Darkness doesn't have to be negative ;P

I wonder if this means a new movie forum will be starting up?

Too many people complained about lens flares and bright light... XD

I like it. Not sure there were very many alternatives anyway.

It avoids having a number in it. What would you number it anyway? II? XII? Or maybe VII? :001_tongue:

And it avoids the bloody colon. I think Lindelof was onto something when he said the colon embodies everything that turns people off of ST. A colon in the title literally translates as Star Trek: Yet Another Movie.

Also ST is short on names and catchphrases that could work without 'Star Trek' in the title. Enterprise is already taken. To Boldly Go sounds about as lame-O as you can possibly get. And there isn't really anything else I can think of that speaks in the way The Dark Knight does, in which people say "Oh I know... that's Batman, right?"

So instead they've found a title that plays on the name 'Star Trek'. It's not what I was expecting, but I don't know what I was expecting. It's better than anything I would've had.

Hope we can keep this one up while they're at it. This is where I post most often. I like a small community.
