Empire Debuts Two New Interesting Star Trek Photos
Empire has done it again. They've managed to capture the world's attention today with two new Star Trek photos and a beautiful cover to go along with them. Hardly two weeks after Paramount unveiled an exciting series of photos, we've got two more to add to the ever-growing gallery, but these aren't any old throwaway photos. Both of them are rather interesting, one featuring Spock standing at the front of the USS Enterprise with space extending out behind him, the other featuring Kirk inside some sort of futuristic EVA armor. If you're as excited as we are for Star Trek, then you'll definitely want to take a look!
Unfortunately Empire doesn't have much clarification for what we're looking at beyond what we've already said above. The cover, which features a full version of the photo at the top, can be found here. They did, however, give us a good teaser from their upcoming Star Trek issue and interview with Abrams: "For me, the costumes were a microcosm of the entire project, which was how to take something that's kind of silly and make it feel real. But how do you make legitimate those near-primary colour costumes? How do you make legitimate the pointy ears and the bowl haircut? It's ridiculous and as potentially cliched as it gets. How do you watch Galaxy Quest and then go make a Star Trek movie?" Good question, Mr. Abrams.
Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams (of "Lost" and Mission: Impossible III) and is written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (of The Island, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen). This is the 11th movie in the Star Trek universe, following most recently Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002. Star Trek is set to land in theaters everywhere on May 8th, 2009 next summer!
