On Wednesday, Screen Rant posted several new images from the upcoming Star Trek film by J.J. Abrams. Today, we have some more thanks to Entertainment Weekly! 6 more to be exact.
Take a look and see what you think.
Chris Pine stares far far away as Captain Kirk
Karl Urban as Leonard “Bones” McCoy peeking out a window
Eric Bana as Nero with his staff
John Cho as an angry Sulu
USS Kelvin attacked by Romulans before Kirk was even born
Spock as the new plastic “Ken” doll
The more new images I see and the more I look at them, the further I feel at ease and am starting to dig the characters. I think Karl Urban is absolute perfection as Dr. McCoy and it’s uncanny how he is able to channel the postures and expressions of that character (and that’s just from the pictures!). I am also really loving Chris Pine as Kirk and I’m confident he’ll give that role justice as well.
Then there is Sylar… I mean Spock. Obviously Zachary Quinto was born for the role but I’m a little confused on the extreme makeover version of him. What’s with the crazy makeup and shine in some of the pics? Luckily, that only seems to be a prominent issue in the photo-shoot-esque images. The screen-grab picture of him in the film has him (and his skin) looking more real – as real as a Vulcan can look I guess.
I’d like to see more of Zoe Saldana as Uhura – the few images of her can go either way. I hope she’s a strong character in the film as she certainly looks the part. I have faith in Pegg as Scotty as well. For him I hope he’s got a deeper and more powerful voice than we’re used to hearing from him as everyone’s favorite witty and tempered engineer.
Now for my worries: I don’t really understand Eric Bana’s character, Nero. I hope he comes off well in the film but I’m not feeling his look from the images so far. Another worry for me is John Cho as Sulu. That being said, the image of him in this post has him nailing the expression of Sulu and I hope that comes off through the entirety of the film.
Star Trek is due out May 8th, 2009.
