The highly anticipated sequel to J.J. Abrams’ critically acclaimed blockbuster reboot recently lit up the series of tubes that connects most of us. Similar to how Sam Mendes took inspiration from The Dark Knight to create his vision of James Bond in Skyfall, the sequel to Abrams’ sci-fi hit looks to be more mature and darker as well. Not only that, but the word “darkness” is in the title.
The obvious aside, the first official poster for Star Trek Into Darkness, which you can check out below, also borrows the logo-carved-out-of-ruins effect from the first official poster of The Dark Knight Rises, which we showed you here, and is reminiscent of other recent movies. Whatever, it looks good! Let us know what you think — is it too much of a ripoff of other iconic posters?
Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldaña, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, John Cho, Simon Pegg, and Benedict Cumberbatch, Star Trek Into Darkness opens May 17, 2013, barring the end of the world later this month.
