Four More Star Trek Posters: Sulu, Scotty, Chekov, McCoy!
During Comic-Con, Paramount unveiled four beautiful new posters that together formed a complete poster that featured our first look at Nero, Uhura, Kirk, and Spock from J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. This weekend, Paramount unveiled four more posters at Creation's official Star Trek convention in Las Vegas and TrekMovie.com was there to pick them up! Seen on the poster this time are John Cho as Sulu, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Anton Yelchin as Chekov, and Karl Urban as Bones McCoy. I already expressed my love for the design of these posters previously, but they continue to kick ass. If only I had all eight of these, my walls would be entirely covered (hint, hint Paramount). This is our first look at all four of these characters and from what I can tell, they're a perfect fit. Abrams' Star Trek is definitely gaining more buzz!
You can check out all four of them laid out below or you can head over to TrekMovie.com for high resolution versions of all of the posters. Thanks for the scoop - these are an awesome compliment to the other four!
I'm very happy that Paramount is embracing the fans with this movie. Too many studios simply forget about fans and this time they're going to be essential to the success of this new Star Trek. Even though Abrams has said that the film is being made to be accessible to everyone, and Paramount will indeed market it to to everyone in the end, like The Dark Knight, empowering the fans is the key to success. These posters are beautiful and perfect ways to introduce us to these young characters. Hopefully I'm not the only one who loves how they look. Simple, but perfectly executed, and that's why they kick so much ass. Enjoy!
Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams (of "Lost" and Mission: Impossible III) and written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (of The Island, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers). The film is the 11th movie in the Star Trek universe. Star Trek arrives in theaters on May 8th, 2009.

The color on the bottom left one is off, but I assume that is from the scanner. I like how Paramount is doing all of these fan posters (hey, its a smart idea, more $). It seems like they are taking care of it. I am not a fan of STAR TREK and am not entirely familiar with it at all, but I'm getting a little excited about it now. I think a X-Mas release would be much better for it, but at least they are not rushing it.

If i remember correctly i wasn't to keen on this style when the other four came out during comic con, but now im starting to come around and when i look back im actually diggin them, great style and colors. Not a fan of Star Trek at all and dont think i will ever be, maybe only a fan of the movie with a great cast and a good director i can see it happening.

This is so something that I need to see footage of. I have more than 30 years of the Star Trek characters so ingrained in my mind (tv, movies and umm, the books) that I have a hard time disassociating them into these new faces. If that makes any sense.... But I dig the posters, and I appreciate the effort. I'm just going to stand over here, though, and wait.

Why post fuzzy images from TrekMovie when the Official Star Trek Movie site has high-quality wallpapers of these new movie posters? Look in the Downloads section of the official site... http://www.StarTrekMovie.com/ 🙂
