We at FTN really, really liked JJ Abram’s Star Trek reboot. It was fun, cool and exciting. Everything Star Trek should be. It’s worth noting Marc’s writing this, and I’m not a trekkie. At all.
So despite myself, I’m rather looking forward to the sequel – the only other Trek movie I looked forward to was Insurrection because it had the Phantom Menace trailer on it; we’ll talk of it no more – if Abrams can maintain the pacing and cracking dialogue from the first movie – seriously, who didn’t love Karl Urban as Bones? – then I’ll be a happy customer.
Now, the website TrekMovie are announcing they have confirmed from several sources that the title of the new movie is Star Trek: The Empire Strikes Back. No, only kidding, it’s Star Trek: Into Darkness.
It’s hard to know how we feel about this at this stage, but it certainly seems to inply that after the light-hearted touch of the first movie, darker things are coming… Wrath of Khan dark? Hard to know, but on May 17 2013 we’ll be sitting in the front row finding out…
