This first poster for Star Trek takes you Into Darkness

Dec. 3, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Star Trek Into Darkness first poster header

Metaphorical darkness, that is.  The darkness of destruction, pain, and loss.

With a first trailer (or nine minute preview, depending on which version of the film you see) set to appear in front of THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY in less than two weeks, J.J. Abrams is finally about to reveal just what trials and tribulations (Tribbleations?) he and his creative team have cooked up for the second adventure with their new crew of the Starship Enterprise.  And today's poster goes a long way towards supporting what last week's plot synopsis confirmed and the overall title implied: that Kirk and Co. are going to be put through the ringer.  They're going to be challenged.  It's not going to be easy.  And just who will be left alive after it all falls out is anybody's guess.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS lets loose a whole swath of first-time footage on December 14th, and then returns the Enterprise to cinemas in full on May 17th, 2013.

What?

I liked the first JJ Star Trek movie a lot, but this poster is totally derivative and the title is flat out awful. It doesn't leave me with high hopes for the movie. I definitely hope I'm wrong, but when you can't be bothered to get little elements like that right it usually means that nobody really gives a shit. That's the vibe I've been getting from this sequel since its conception. People just going through the motions. Like I said, I hope I'm wrong.

The poster's stylish and all, but it doesn't exactly scream "Star Trek".

Now the "This movie is going to suck because they hate the poster crowd" will make their voices known!

Awesome poster for what will be an even better movie!! Remember Trek nerds part of the reason this Abrams version of Star Trek is so much more successful than any of the other movies is mainly because it is less "Trekkie"

Yeah good way to alienate all the guys who followed it for years. JJ sucks balls. You would be talking a whole different story if batman was turned into a whiny fag like spock was. JJ just cant some up with anything as intelligent as the real star trek, so he has to resort to "making it his own'. These new treks have their audience but its the "i cant fucking understand any real scifi so i want a bunch of CGI thrown at the screen like transformers, so i can turn my brain off."

Hold up, j-man, are you calling the original Star Trek "hard" science fiction? Because there are legions of hard core sci-fi nerds that would take issue with that. What was supposed to be so difficult to understand about the original Star Trek? They were great and all, but not all that complicated.

They were more so than JJ's version. You have to admit that it is dumbed down big time! I mean look at the themes presented in the original trek, or even in TNG, or DS9. JJ's trek has nothing to do with scifi - its just an action movie set in semi-trek universe. he doesnt care about trek at all. if he did, he wouldnt have ruined spock. WHy not just make something new that is scifi action, thats because they want to use the name only. Look at battlestar - that was an old show, not bad, a bit

Look at battlestar - that was an old show, not bad, a bit cheese, but then they redid it and it was amazing - thats cause they respected the source material. I just hate that JJ took trek and made it mtv-ish - i cannot be only one who thinks his movie sucked. Its just not star trek - to those who like it, thats fine, but they arent real trek fans and they never will be because they dont like the old one.

Cool poster.

Sure it's reminiscent of the Dark Knight Rises, but that doesn't mean it isn't cool. The title is still awful, though.

I guess the movie will be better, but...

This looks like a Poser for a soulless [link] Suckfest.
We get it: the Nolan-Batman did a shitload of money but that doesn't mean to make every Blockbuster darker & grittier...

Just a poster so you cannot really judge, but what i love about this new star trek series is how it has nothing to do with star trek at all - oh wait, that's what i dont like about it. well at least it saves me money from seeing it in the theatre or buying it on bluray - at least Doctor Who hasnt been ruined yet.

Needs 99% more "Star" and "Trek" in there somewhere.

I'm excited about the movie, but this poster is hamfisted.

it is very reminiscent of The Dark Knight Rises posters, but still a nice bit of teaser art. Really looking forward to this film.
