Paramount Pictures Releases First Star Trek Into Darkness Poster

Check out the teaser poster for The Dark Knight Rises. Oops, I meant to say Star Trek Into Darkness. In my defense, the first official poster for the Star Trek sequel looks awfully familiar to the crumbling city landscape in the first creative for the Batman film.

Whatever happened to the Star Trek mantra of going where no man has gone before. Apparently, that excludes Christopher Nolan films 😉 Too bad, the studio didn’t release an awesome motion poster like the one for Catching Fire. That would’ve been intergalactic.

Paramount tweeted the first official image for the highly-anticipated flick today. It follows J.J. Abrams’s recent reveal of the film’s plot. The next step in the film’s initial marketing push is debuting the movie trailer during screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I can’t wait.

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew. – Abrams

Chris Pine along with the rest of his Enterprise crew Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho and Simon Pegg all return for the Star Trek sequel. Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman wrote the screenplay. Star Trek Into Darkness is scheduled to open on May 17, 2013.

What do you think of the first official poster? Does it make you wish Scotty could beam you to the theaters now? Sound off below.

    Scotty might not be able to beam me up to the theater right now, but to watch this new Star Trek gig we might want to be near a black hole or a temporal flux: with the opening scheduled for May 17, 2012, time travel is surely in order here.

  • Hahahaha. Typo, my bad.

    its really offputting to see people just automatically say they copied that i mean everything is derivative of something else. that is what art is its just reinterpreting what was once before in a new way. i think both posters are good creatives for their respective movies. the star trek poster accurately conveys what the plot will be about just like the batman poster.

    It’s too alike really
    I wouldn’t mind if they put chris pine into a leather suit as well though
