A day before 'Star Trek' celebrates its 46th anniversary, words run rampant that the upcoming sequel directed by Abrams is now titled 'Star Trek Into Darkness'.
A juicy scoop about J.J. Abrams' much awaited "Star Trek" sequel has made its round onto the web a day before the Gene Roddenberry-created franchise celebrates its 46th anniversary. Rumor has it, Abrams has already found a right title for the highly secretive project.
Per ComingSoon, it is said that the untitled Star Trek sequel will possibly be known in theaters as "Star Trek Into Darkness". Warner Bros. Pictures hasn't confirmed the report, but the film site has noted two domains, www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie, which allegedly are related to the film.
The two domains reportedly were registered on Thursday, September 6 via anonymous domain registry service Markmonitor. The company is known for teaming up with several studios, including Paramount Pictures which used its service for a "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" official site.
Should the rumored title be true, it might be a far cry from what Chris Pine has said that the film would present some comedic elements. "There's comedy, which I think J.J. does a great job of, but, like the first one, there's some serious issues being dealt with. And I'd say the threat is even greater in this one," he recently told Total Film.
Scheduled to arrive in the U.S. theaters on May 17, 2013, "Star Trek 2" still hasn't revealed its official synopsis. The sci-fier also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg and John Cho.
