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. :-)
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:
Star Trek poster featuring Chris Pine as Kirk
Star Trek poster featuring Zachary Quinto as Spock
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.
