"But Starburst, I read this on [insert name of any inferior news site here] days ago, why you just reporting it now, yo?" - well dear reader, whoever you are, that's because a) Paramount had yet to officially come clean and make an announcement, and b) we simply thought it was a load of ol' bollocks, because, quite frankly, we didn't for a second think that the mighty talent that is J.J. Abrams could come up with such a bloody awful title.

And so, forever more, the second film in his rebooted STAR TREK film franchise will be known as...


Oh dear. While the moniker certainly teases a much moodier plotline this time around, it reads terribly and let's face it, doesn't make a lick of sense. If they'd have banged a traditional colon in there we'd have been much happier, but as it stands it's a clunker. Even the Enterprise crew are baffled by it, look at 'em! . . .

STID opens in UK cinemas May 17th 2013. Ropey title aside, we can't wait!

But what do you think of the title? Are we overreacting? Let us know in the Comments below or on Twitter @STARBURST_MAG

I like the moodier title tone! But also think maybe a colon after *Star Trek* in the proposed title would have announced it with more punch from a semi dramatic pause before leading you to read...*Into The Darkness*.

But at the end of the day the older Trek films that have not been as successful have sounded cool BUT not had the hot box office hit that was hoped for.

So as long as the film is good and appeals to the audience- i don't care so much about this detail really; that's not the most important thing! x

Rock on & Prosper! ;oJ
