'Star Trek 3' Likely Titled 'Star Trek Beyond'

The crew of the starship Enterprise always hopes to go where no one has gone before. For the third movie, that might be "Beyond."

The third film in the recently rebooted Star Trek series now has a likely title. After Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Trek 3 is likely to be called Star Trek Beyond. Read more about the Star Trek 3 title below.

TrekMovie.com is reporting the Star Trek 3 title news.Justin Lin is directing the film which will feature the core cast of the past two films, along with Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella and others.

The report admits this might just be a title to put fans off the scent of the film, but "Star Trek Beyond" was reportedly registered with the Motion Picture Association of America. So it seems likely, with a July 8, 2016 release date fast approaching, this could be the title.

Simon Pegg is co-writing the film with Doug Jung and, as evidenced by the last film, this one should take the Enterprise deep into unknown worlds. That's another reason the "Beyond" title also makes sense. Plus, with 2016 being the 50th anniversary of the franchise, that title also has some significance as this would see the long-running series looking toward the future of the franchise.

We'll have more on Star Trek 3, or Star Trek Beyond, in the coming weeks as deals are finalized and the movie goes into production. Former director and current producer J.J. Abrams appeared via video at CinemaCon this week to talk about his excitement to see the franchise move forward, and he likely speaks for everyone involved.
