After driving trekkies to the brink of insanity with a 3 FRAME preview on Conan in October, the latest piece of hype raising tools in the lead up to the release of Star Trek Into Darkness, the sequel to the 2009 J.J. Abrams directed Star Trek reboot.
The poster (pictured above) features a dark figure in the middle of the iconic StarFleet symbol, carved out of the remains of a building looking out onto a decimated London skyline. (Does the poster remind you of one used for a certain Bat themed movie franchise?… Hmmm…).
The movie stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Simon Pegg, Alice Eve, Peter Weller, Noel Clarke, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
