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!
