Over what was supposed to be a quiet weekend, spent in contemplative anticipation for the MTV Movie Awards (or, y'know, just enjoyable weekend stuff), Star Trek Into Darkness revealed two flashy new character posters, first for Zoe Saldana's Uhura and then Zachary Quinto's Spock, each of them deep in the middle of an action scene. Now the Argentinean site Cine1 has revealed two more, with the one you see up top featuring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk, and then another of Benedict Cumberbatch's mysterious villain John Harrison:
Given that most of what we've seen of Cumberbatch has had him standing terrifyingly still, watching over the destruction he's brought to the earth, it's actually a little surprising to see him in action and bloodied up a bit here. Obviously he's unlikely to win in the end-- unless Abrams has a seriously dark Empire Strikes Back ending up his sleeve, which could be interesting-- so he's gonna get bloody eventually, but I thought the whole marketing campaign revolved around "Unbreakable Cumberbatch." Either way, he looks good in the middle of the action-- not that anybody really questioned that.
Between these posters and the new clip that debuted during last night's MTV Movie Awards, we're entering the final stages of the still-mysterious marketing for Star Trek Into Darkness, which comes to theaters on May 17. It's still up in the air whether Abrams' love of secrecy has kept people intrigued or has left audiences with not enough to get excited about. Let us know where you fall by voting in the poll below.
Does all the secrecy around Star Trek Into Darkness make you more or less interested?
