First Theatrical Star Trek Posters Go Retro

Published 6 years ago by , Updated February 10th, 2012 at 7:17 am,

Paramount sent me a link to these but I’ve lost my username/password to the site… thankfully Latino Review posted these up at warp speed, so I have them to thank for ‘em. icon smile First Theatrical Star Trek Posters Go Retro

We’ve seen posters for Star Trek before, but these are the first two that will actually be displayed at movie theaters. They’re character close-ups of Christopher Pine as Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock.

Check ‘em out below.

We’ve seen this pose by Chris Pine before, but the Zack Quinto image is new. I find it interesting that they decided to make these black and white, but I like them. They give me a much better feeling about the movie than the plastic Ken-doll looking magazine cover images we’ve seen of these two up until now.

Definitely more of retro-homage thing going on with these:

I wonder if they’ll be rolling out more character posters of the rest of the actors: John Cho, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin… Kirk and Spock are the biggies, but McCoy makes up the final part of the Trek Trinity.

Remember we’ll also be getting our first look at a full Star Trek trailer this Friday attached to Quantum of Solace. There have been descriptions of the trailer floating around and the one thing that stood out for me about them is that there was no mention of a “beauty shot” of the U.S.S. Enterprise – which I found very unusual. I thought I heard months ago that the unveiling of the ship would be a focal point of the new trailer.

I guess we’ll see soon enough.

What do you think of the “vibe” of these new posters?

Star Trek opens on May 8, 2009.

  1. definately a better vibe and feel for the characters’ look from these posters.

    Simple and effective.

  2. I want the trailer now!!! The anticipation is killing me!!

  3. Star Trek goes Metrosexual!!!

  4. I like it! I have always been a fan of black & white photography, it gives the pictures more impact. The pose gives Pine the look of a bad guy though. The pictures don’t help the whole ‘their kinda young’ thing either.

    When the trailer shows and doesn’t have a “beauty shot” of the Enterprise, you’ll be able to hear me scream (ARRRGH!!) on the other side of the galaxy!

    And then I get kicked out of the theater.:(

  5. If you haven’t been to the movie’s web site lately (like me) there is count down to when the trailer will be viewable online: Less than a week to go!

    I’m a gonna pee my pants!

  6. Underwhelming,,,
    These look like pictures you see at SuperCuts as your picking out a style.
    I’m really tired of the “faces” of these characters passing as movie posters…
    Serioulsy this is the best they can do? What are they trying to hide?

    We all know what these kids look like…
    These head shots, are not movie posters !!!!! :-(

    David, what’s gonna happen when you see the entire film ?
    (I don’t wanna know)

  7. I love them as photographs. Not so much as a movie promotion… but then again, this movie doesn’t need any promotion so these are for us, the fans :)

  8. @ 790

    You don’t, really!

  9. There is a Zoe Saldana one that they distributed at Wonder Con. Looks great!
