The cash registers just stopped ringing for ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ which raked in an estimated $84 million over the 4-day weekend and an additional $80M internationally since opening on May 9. And, of course, talk has already turned to 'Star Trek 3.'
The effort at rebooting the Star Trek brand for a new generation has been a success and even though J.J. Abrams is departing this particular universe to play in Lucasfilm’s sandbox, that doesn’t mean the Trek franchise will crumble without him. Quite the opposite.
Plans already are underway for the third installment in this rebooted Trek franchise and as a handy guide, here’s everything we know about the as-yet-untitled ‘Star Trek 3.’

The geek world was torn asunder when J.J. Abrams jumped off 'Star Trek' and signed on to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' However, it turns out that his decision to do so went beyond simply preferring one franchise over another. According to a new report, Abrams felt strangled by legal red tape wrapped around the 'Star Trek' franchise, which prevented him from creating a true multimedia platform (and making a lot more money).

Karl Urban Interview: Talking 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' Secret of the Tribble and More

Our long, slow trek into darkness is almost over. We've seen and reviewed the 'Star Trek' sequel and soon you will, too. (Well, you'll see it – whether your review will be anything more than saying, “hey, that was fun!” as you go out for Whoppers afterwards is up to you.)

We put a call into sick bay and had the good fortune to speak with Karl Urban, back on board the Enterprise as the lovable curmudgeon Dr. Leonard H. “Bones” McCoy. Urban's take on Starfleet's finest chief medical officer is a welcome bit of comic relief in 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so much so that it took great self-restraint to keep from begging him to shout “dammit!' over the phone. We did, however, touch upon other topics.
