New Stylish ‘Star Trek’ Poster Looks Awesome

Published 5 years ago by

Yesterday, Screen Rant put up a new set of Star Trek posters that were initially thought to be fan-made. Their Photoshop-looking but slick design turned out to be legitimate and one of the three awesome posters is an Empire exclusive which obviously hinted at their authenticity.

Well, apparently there weren’t enough new Trek posters for the week because another one popped up on MySpace today in yet another different style then we’ve seen before.

The very unique black and white poster looks like an elegant and artful painting that I want a copy of. If someone can paint this with the text removed and mail it to me, that would be great – Don’t worry I’ll handle the framing of it icon wink New Stylish Star Trek Poster Looks Awesome

Take a look and see what you think:

I like the different styles we’re seeing in the Star Trek promotional material – I’m sure each different style is helping grab the attention of new sets of eyes. This poster is the final official one-sheet we’ll be seeing for the movie.

The franchise-resurrecting film is written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman with J.J. Abrams directing.

Star Trek opens May 8, 2009 and I’ll be there.

  1. It DOES look cool!

  2. I LIKE it!!

  3. needs more Shatner but it looks cool

  4. Engage warp 5,,,
    Would look better in color,,, ?

    What’s with the b/w art on this marketing campaign, are they taking us back to 1966 ?

  5. Hmm, as soon as I saw the poster, X-Files popped into my head…

    Personally I like the fact that they’re giving nods to the 60s using b&w.

  7. 790! It’s been a while.

    I like this, I also like the deco style (?) Starfleet or communicator badge logo that I saw somewhere.

    Speaking of communicators, the classic flip-tops would look so yesterday since the advent of cell phones. Interesting how Hi Fi Trek Sci Fi Tech™ is now reality. Too bad hypodermics have yet to be replaced with those spray things.

  8. @ 790,

    I think It’s effective because it’s a rather simple simple – the colour might drown out what it’s trying to show, and the batch of posters we got the day before had enough colour to go around, lol

  9. Maybe Ted Turner can chime in on this topic? :-)

    Well sure its got a Menagerie pilot b/w feel to it, let’s just hope the early parts of the new film aren’t in b/w. That would be a little desperate (imo).

    I already think Pike (Bruce Greenwood) looks too old in this new film, as Jeffrey Hunter was pretty young in “The Cage.”

    This will be an interesting attempt by Abrams to reinvent Star Trek.
    I will say, I have more faith in Abrams than I do for McG,,, :-)

  10. I just realised I have seen that tag line, somewhere before!
    ^
    Terminator Salvation, The Future Begins?
    Changed to Terminator Salvation.

    So then Star Trek picks up the tag
    line ? Star Trek,The Future Begins,,,?!?

    Other strange coincidences with these two films,,,
    ^
    1-Both coming out in the same month,

    2-Both are using reinventions on the characters/canon.

    3-Both have young up and coming Directors

    4-Prob gonna have the same rating.(PG-13)

    5- At least one of the actors plays a semi-major role in both films,

    6- Both films are throwing canon out the door and using a alternate reality to get past it…

    7-Both have used the same tag line in promotions.

    8-Both using Time Travel as a main plot device.

    9-both use Cars/automobiles from the future. “Ok that ones kinda a stretch”

    10-Both make the same amount of cash?
    (Who knows)

    11-One is called Star Trek and the other is called Terminator Salvation,,, see the reverse capitals in the title (ST-TS)
    ^
    Freaky,!!! these films have so much in common its like I’m living in alternate realities… :-)

  11. I don’t get this poster at all, it screams ambiguous and not in the way that it is open to the viewers interpretation but in a way that is doubtful and uncertain..kind of like they couldn’t really figure out what to put on the poster..I know the Enterprise in there somewhere and then again maybe it’s not…let’s hope the movie and the upcoming media blitz for this movie aren’t this ambiguous.

  12. Ya see 790..it’s posts like that one that make me glad you are back…Freakadelic dude!!

  13. Thanks 333. :-)

    I’ve read also that Star Trek is going to be in IMAX,,, I’m not sure if Vics covered that here.

  14. @790

    Oh, you mean this?

    :-P

  15. Slipped my mind…
    ;-)

  16. @greenknight333

    Okay, maybe it is a bit ambiguous, but I think this the first promotional item they’ve actually used to sell the Enterprise as part of the movie. Everything I’ve seen until this poster has focused strongly on the cast and characters, and I like that the Enterprise is finally getting some well-deserved facetime on the final poster.

  17. I’m loving the simplicity and stylization; it’s basically Enterprise’s long-delayed ComicCon character poster.

  18. I’m glad you’re back 790,

    Great list :)

  19. Thanks Rob. :-)
