J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Sequel is Called…

According to an AV Club report, the second Star Trek movie from J.J. Abrams will be called…

Star Trek Into Darkness.

That’s right… no numbers, no dashes, no colons.

I love it. It’s hilarious. I had so much fun with Abrams’ “reboot” of the series that I have high hopes for the sequel… especially considering they’ve cast Benedict Cumberbatch in a major role. (Here’s my original review of Abrams’ first Star Trek into box office success.)

Imagine the sequels. Star Trek Into Pudding. Star Trek Into the Wild. Star Trek Into the Great Wide Open. Star Trek Into Great Silence. Star Trek Into My Face.

Go for it. Let’s see who can come up with the best Star Trek Into _______________ title.

    Star Trek to the nerd squad. Anyone else having trouble with the link to the original Star Trek review?

      I’ve just repaired it. Many posts on this blog are offline right now, as I go through a long and tedious process of repairing links that were mixed up in an update. Sorry about that.

      Only if the last one is title “Star Trek In2 The Sequel.” That screams marketing potential.

    Star Trek Into Great Silence? That’s brilliant.
