We’ve got two movies opening soon-ish that are sequels to other films, yet have eschewed the usual boring Blow ’Em Up 3: The Explosioning sort of titles. Star Trek Into Darkness actually makes you think about the fact that the “trek” part of the title is actually a verb. And yes, A Good Day to Die Hard sounds as if it, too, might be a Star Trek movie focusing on Klingons, but at least it’s trying to do something fresh with its title. Is it just me? Am I the only one mystified by why more sequels aren’t more creatively titled? I get that there’s supposed to be name recognition built into a film’s title if it’s a sequel, but these two titles demonstrate that there’s still room for some fun. And yet we hardly ever see that sort of fun happening. Why »
