JJ Abraham's new film is reportedly called 'Star Trek Into Darkness'

The title of JJ Abraham’s sequel to his Star Trek reboot has reportedly been leaked, and will be titled Star Trek Into Darkness, according to film website Comingsoon.net.

Although the website cannot confirm the title, they claim the domain names www.startrekintodarkness.com and www.startrekintodarknessmovie were both registered on Thursday (September 6) through MarkMonitor, an anonymous domain registry service used recently used by Paramount Pictures for GI Joe: Retaliation.

The sequel to JJ Abraham’s 2009 Star Trek reboot will star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller. It has been given a release date of May 17, 2013.

Last week, Zachary Quinto, who plays Mr Spock in the film, promised that Star Trek 2 will be “bigger” and “bolder” than its predecessor.

When asked how the sequel compares to the 2009 reboot, Quinto told The Wrap: “It was bigger. It was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my standpoint. I’m really excited to see what they do with it.”

Pine also discussed Star Trek 2 this week, insisting that the sequel builds on the 2009 movie. He promised: ‘”The force [the Enterprise crew] are met with is much more frightening. It’s relentlessly action-packed and in terms of character development it goes places you’d never expect. The arc is huge for all the characters. It’s a really big story – I can’t hype it enough!”
