It took a while, but the title for the 2013 sequel to JJ Abrams' Star Trek movie has finally been decided.
Paramount Pictures has firmed up the title Star Trek Into Darkness. The sequel's title leaked over the weekend, but has now been verified by Paramount Pictures
Paramount tested a number of titles for the film over the summer, including at least one title that did not include "Star Trek.
Abrams finished filming the sequel in May (2012), but plot details are being kept under wraps. Very little is currently known about the movie.

Benedict Cumberbatch is known to be playing a villain, while Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin will all reprise their roles
from the 2009 movie.
Last week (September 6), Quinto insisted that the sequel is a step up from Abrams' first Star Trek movie, which grossed over $385 million (£240 million)
worldwide. When asked about shooting Into Darkness, he replied: "It was bigger.
It was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my stand point. I'm really excited to see what they do with it."
Earlier this month (September 3), Chris Pine also shed new light on Star Trek Into Darkness, insisting that the sequel builds on the 2009 movie.
He explained: "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!"
The Paramount/Skydance film will be released May 17, 2013.
