At the recent Vegas-Con, Paramount released another set of Star Trek character posters. These feature John Cho as Sulu, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy and Anton Yeltsin as Chekov.
Once again they’ve bathed the characters in primary colors, making it difficult to make out clearly what they really look like in character, but at least it’s something.
Check out the four posters below.
Although in my opinion the most unusual bit of Star Trek casting was Karl Urban as Dr. McCoy, for some reason I have a feeling he’s really going to nail it. Although Simon Pegg doesn’t look the part, I think he’s versatile enough to pull off Scotty. Yeltsin as Chekov – no big deal. Just play it with an accent and wide-eyed. John Cho I don’t know about as Sulu though.
What do you think?

Star Trek opens on May 8, 2009.
