Two New Star Trek Posters Take Us Back in Black

Expect these two faces to be everywhere by next May. Paramount has unveiled two new complimentary posters for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. I don't think I need to tell you who's who by now, so I won't even begin. Everything about the marketing campaign for Star Trek has been completely retro so far. Paramount is trying to evoke everyone's nostalgia for Kirk and Spock yet emphasize that this is a fresh, new, modern, and sleek take on the franchise. So far I think they're doing a damn good job - these both look stunning. These arrive just in advance of the full Star Trek trailer due out in front of Quantum of Solace this Friday.
As much as I love the look of these, I don't like the way Kirk is posed. He looks evil and demented, not like the Captain of the USS Enterprise that he's supposed to be. Anyone else feel the same way?
