Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness – two of summer 2013’s biggest films – are releasing new posters today, and we’ve rounded them up in one place for your viewing pleasure.
Check out the posters below.
Star Trek Into Darkness Motion Poster
While debate continues to rage about the nature of Benedict Cumberbatch’s villain character in Star Trek Into Darkness, we have a new motion poster for the film that actually mimics the original Into Darkness poster – only in MUCH more cinematic fashion.
Check it out:
The voiceover from Cumberbatch in the motion poster also appeared in the original Star Trek Into Darkness teaser trailer – though what “John Harrison” is returning from, and why he wants revenge on Kirk (Chris Pine) and the Federation remains to be seen; though that mystery is also often the fuel for rumors that “Harrison” is really a cover alias for original series villains like Gary Mitchell and/or Khan.
J.J. Abrams and his team of writers/collaborators – Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof – are keeping things pretty close to the vest, but the latest Star Trek Into Darkness trailer indicates that plenty of mayhem, destruction (and crashed spaceships) will be inflicted upon Earth by John Harrison. Should be a good time.
Star Trek Into Darkness will be in theaters on May 17, 2013.
Iron Man 3 Poster – Guy Pearce
We recently seen new Iron Man 3 character posters starting to drop; first was an unusual one-sheet showing Tony Stark falling from the heavens wearing some beat-up new armor; after that came Don Cheadle as Rhodey, sporting the new Iron Patriot-colored War Machine armor.
Today we have a new poster that’s a little surprising (read: a bit random). The poster in question depicts actor Guy Pearce’s character, Aldrich Killian.
CLICK FOR HI-RES VERSION
For those who don’t know, Killian was a scientist who was introduced in writer Warren Ellis and artist Adi Granov’s “Extremis” storyline – which is one of the big comic book influences director Shane Black is drawing from. Killian is one half of the team that develops the Extremis nanotech virus, alongside Dr. Maya Hansen (played in the film by Rebecca Hall). Killian’s intentions were… less than noble in the comic book, and given Pearce’s swagger and the small tidbits we’ve seen (or heard through rumor), it seems the movie version of Killian will be even more nefarious.
Next up: Hopefully a poster of Ben Kingsley’s Mandarin?
Iron Man 3 will be in theaters on May 3, 2013.
