J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2 is now Star Trek Into Darkness

The sequel to J. J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek now has an officially announced title: Star Trek Into Darkness. Shouldn’t there be a colon or something there?

The title popped up as a rumor before the weekend, but now Paramount has confirmed it. First Showing is willing to give the lack of a punctuation mark the benefit of the doubt, while Hollywood.com examines the trend of “dark” movie titles recently.

Star Trek Into Darkness is scheduled to come out on May 17, 2013, adding Benedict Cumberbatch to the cast as a villain. Still no word if Lens Flare gets a higher billing than the Sherlock star.

    As a friend of mine pointed out on Facebook, the lack of colon makes it fun to read in a stilted “contestant-answering-a-Before-and-Answer-Wheel-of-Fortune-puzzle” kind of way.

    Isn’t that title a bit ominous given the lack of a TV show and the overall “basically it’s dead” vibe? How more “into darkness” can Trek really go?
