Oh, the Cleverness of Titles like “Star Trek Into Darkness”

Links: To think The Hobbit wouldn’t have been the hit it already is or have the opening weekend it had would be nuts. For whatever reason, it’s not resonating with critics, with one even daring to mention the unthinkable of prequels, Star Wars. That’s like jinxing Picaso from ever painting again.
