    I think that's fine as long as you don't make the website harm the trademark... so I would guess, not monetizing it with black hat methods.

    Because ... I also did research for trademark-containing domains, and I found something that said that it's fine as long as you don't harm the brand/trademark.

    Titanic was the name of an actual ship and many other things.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanic_(disambiguation)

    Armageddon is the name of several things as well
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armageddon_(disambiguation)

    Many movies are just generic names

    The Revenent from 2015 also was a name of a movie a few years earlier as well as an comic book, neither of the three are related to each other

    As long as you don't try and confuse visitors into thinking it's something it's not you should be fine.
