Another Official Artsy Star Trek Poster Revealed

Yesterday we debuted a new poster for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek, but it was supposedly only a UK poster. Paramount has unveiled the official US poster for Star Trek today on MySpace, and it's complete change of pace from the UK one. Strangely enough, this poster actually showed up on TrekMovie yesterday, but it was listed as the German poster. Now MySpace is saying it's the "final theatrical one-sheet," although I can't imagine Paramount wants to use a poster like this without a single face on it to sell American audiences on their big summer sci-fi movie. Whatever, I actually love the look of this poster anyway. Check it out!

Star Trek Poster

A chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members.

Star Trek is directed by J.J. Abrams, of "Lost", "Alias", and Mission: Impossible III previously. The screenplay was written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, of The Island, Mission: Impossible III, Transformers, and the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. This is the 11th movie in the Star Trek universe, following most recently Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002. The original "Star Trek" TV series first aired in 1966. Paramount will debut Star Trek in theaters everywhere on May 8th this summer!

    very nice composition. and the text is well done as well.
  • AbercrombieAndBitch
    WTF? Only fanboys will dig this.

    It's a simple poster with the enterprise moving at high speed in the back ground. This does nothing for me. But do really want to see this film from the cool trailers that I have seen already.
  • twispious
    very ominous/dark

    I don't like artsy and Star Trek on the same poster.

    A daring choice and I like it a lot - especially the way it takes a moment to realise what you're looking at. But as marketing? Dunno. It tells you so little its more like a teaser image than a final poster, though you can tell they were aiming for something both unusual and iconic. There's something lacking about it too. Larger font? Jury still out, methinks.

    Love it! More hate-bait for Feo!

    OKAY EVERYONE, here's the studio thinking on this, so shut yo traps. We've already given you all the faces of the movies for over the past year on those wonderful character solo sheets. So why do you want to see those same faces again and again and again when you already have them? What's the one thing missing from the entire campaign when you've taken care of the actors? It's the ship. It's what makes Star Trek. So now the entirety of the campaign feels full, and more complete with a 21st century slightly trippy yet still black and white classy image that is representative of the whiz bang head whipping action of the new installment. It stirs controversy, but is essentially beautiful beautiful trek.

    I don't know anything related about Star Trek and that poster doesn't look like a ship of any sort to me. So if it's marketing towards the fan boys, then it succeeds. If it's marketing towards the general public, it fails.
  • Lauren
    Good in concept, but the way that they did it somehow ends up looking like a photoshopped picture of an Enterprise action toy.
  • DieHard Indy Fan
    Really cool. Probably still a teaser type poster... they can risk being "different" for those. The final will be the faces-around-the-ship scenario...
