The Final Theatrical STAR TREK Poster Has Arrived!!

Merrick here...
MySpace Movies / Trailer Park has posted the final theatrical one sheet for Abrams' STAR TREK movie. Click the image below to jump to a bigger version!
I kinda like this, even though a big part of me wishes the same abstract image was in color. The exact same image by way of, say...Bob Peak styling...would be kinda smokin' if you ask me. But, this is diggable all the same...

    it's kinda....not very good to be honest

    by The Amazing G

    I mean it's just a blurry image of the Enterprise and while I suppose the fact that it's supposed to be going through "warp speed" or whatever is a bit neat, it's hardly Drew Struzan

    This is a Photoshop filter right? The Future Begins. Feh. The only great thing about this campaign is the old typeface on the title. The Enterprise is the most gorgeous ship design in Sci Fi history. And we Matrix it out like this?

    this POSTER...

    by bma2192

    ...is freakin' COOL. Something to be said about being so understated-- giving us what we were not expecting. The more I see about this new reboot, the more sold I get-- I mean, c'mon! The old Star Trek DVDS arent going to vanish when this movie comes out-- we can still enjoy the old formula when ever we want, and its not like the old crew was EVER coming back to make more anyways, right? What I love is that they're injecting new blood into this series and thanks to the time-travel storied nature of the movie, theyre making it PART of the STORY as to why things "look" and feel different. Why the tone is different-- I just hope the movie is as COOL as the promo and hype theyve built up-- or else all my VALID points are going to be pretty darn MOOT. BUT considering that most of us LOVE Trek, despite ST-5 and countless BAD episodes of our respectively loved series incarnations... I dont see where all the complaints are comin' from! --oh, yeah, the POSTER... sorry. I LIKE. It's much more like art than a typical movie promo-- I plan on buying it:)

    The final poster is a.....misfire. Doesn't fit in at all with the campaign so far. Can't figure out what they were thinking on that one. I'm totally on board for the movie, but this final one sheet is a turd.

    Every other piece of marketing for this has been so satisfying, maybe they were bound to screw up something. But if this is the dvd art I will be beyond angry.

    by Ogma

    Wow, that is just awful. It looks like the result of a printer failure. They really dropped the ball with that piece of garbage. I'm sorry, but it looks more like an "X-Files" movie teaser poster than the glorious adventure that is/can be "Star Trek." F-A-I-L.

    Worst part is...

    by BrooseTheScharuk

    ...it looks like a smeary blur of a MODEL going backwards, as opposed to a massive spaceship going backwards. It doesn't even have a sense of scale to it. I'm all for atypical, minimalist, radical, unexpected marketing ideas for movies, but this looks like a toy viewed through the eyes of a dog with glaucoma, as it falls down a well.

    How the FUCK did THIS get through Marketing?

    by conspiracy

    What..did JJ submit this mess just before a Holiday or something? THIS was the BEST they had? Was the art Dept. on it rotating day off so he and Orci sat down with a bong load of Peruvian marching powder and get crazy with the Photoshop?</p><p> I've seen "art" that made more sense painted by Thai elephants...for fucks sake a blind, spastic crack baby could create better imagery.</p><p> This is what happens when edgy goes corporate, when a re-imagining goes too far, and when ego overrides common sense and good business. No sane marketeer or artist thought this was a good idea I can tell you this. It is a fucking mess...Pollack makes more artistic sense...and he was insane.

    First wrong move?

    by spencerjay

    I personally like it. It's a bold, original choice. But I care more about whether the film does well than I do about what I like and with an emphasis on taking this film mainstream...this might be the first mistake in one of the most brilliant and disciplined marketing campaigns I've ever seen. Maybe they're taking all the credibility they've built up for a spin. Part of me can't help but admire them a little...

    Out with the Cheese

    by BesouroPreto

    I love this very much!! I am so glad they got rid of the cheesy starry background and stupid half faces. Since this movie is about Time travel and changing history the half-formed vaguely shaped Enterprise fits very well thematically. The Future that was is being reshaped before our very eyes (and I for one am very glad to see it go.) So it makes sense to see the Iconic shape of the Enterprise forming into something that is still familiar, but yet different, Let's hope this reboot pumps some new life into Star Trek.

    by Liberty Valance

    That shit is straight up ugly. I'm all for the abstact and/or minimalism, but this poster accomplishes nothing more than taking the iconic image of the Enterprise and rendering it nigh unrecognizible. Plus taking the excised subtitle from Terminator Salvation and using it as a tagline is uninspired at best and titanically retarded at worst.

    by HyphenatedWords

    Maybe this really IS a poster of the future in that it can't be photographed properly with an old-fashioned, traditional camera. Maybe in person it goes beyond the faddish lenticular posters and houses beautiful, multi-faceted imagery that encapsulated the history of Trek, culminating with the new experience, depending on how you approach it and what you're feeling at the moment. It only LOOKS like a Ghostbuster wiped his butt on Rorschach's face online because the technology doesn't yet exist to fully capture it.

    Bah! Nevermind the haters. This is a GREAT poster!

    by Bones

    But it isn't. The British posters are better than this one--and they are all photoshopped redos of the existing headshots.<p> Well, it is a moot point anyway--THE WHOLE POINT OF A MOVIE POSTER is to build a buzz, get you excited MONTHS before a film comes out.<p> This seems like a contractual obligation poster. Like someone in marketing said: "Sh*t!!! We forgot the poster!!!!"<p> And this is what you get.<p> Great movie posters are a dying or dead art, I guess. I mean, where is the color? the excitement? WHERE IS THE GODDAMNED STAR TREK???

    Classy but dull . . .

    by Thall_Joben

    Underwhelming, it has to be a teaser poster. It seems inappropriately abstract to be a final, no way does this sit with the trailer we've seen. Who'd buy this as a poster? Not me, it's almost as bad as that awful 'Anakin's cape makes Vader's face' poster! Smear and blur does not equal intriguing, its as overused as the lens flare filter!

    I guess jj or whoever's in charge of promotions doesn't buy that philosophy or they think this pile of tribble turds is the best poster. Surprised there hasn't been a spock (Leonard Nimoy one anyway) poster to help attract the established fans of star trek and counteract the "star trek 90210" vibe a lot of the hardcore are getting from this flick. If this movie star trek 90210 is a hit we'll have lucas making a young Han Solo flick (which I would like by the way).

    Insurrection Poster

    by BoyNamedSue

    Am I the only person who thought that the poster for Star Trek Insurrection was just plain bizarre? No characters from the main cast were on it, only a barely recognizable picture of the Enterprise. The main villain was depicted in abstract, looking like he was about to fall asleep.........or am I not "profound" enough to understand the deeper meaning there. The move might have made more money if it had had a better poster!

    I think I get it

    by joshuavance1701

    You know, the imagery is basically nothing, the epitome of minimalism. But by God I think I get it and what they were going for. The Enterprise is in a state of flux. As is, interestingly enough, the state of Star Trek according to what we know of the plot. Time and history are being altered, and this is represented by a distorted Enterprise. A transistion from old guard films to the new. Also, the spectrum is inverted, contrasted, the ship is dark and empty space bright white. Space is purportedly the "final frontier", there is alot of mystery and ambiguity in this image. Ok , I like it. I see where they are with this.

  • March 28, 2009, 8:18 a.m. CST

    They Will Have to Change it for the DVD

    by BoyNamedSue

    To get more people to notice and buy it. The current poster lacks.....color. Or so I'm guessing. So far, Star Trek IV is the only movie poster changed for the home video release.

  • March 28, 2009, 8:23 a.m. CST

    As an addendum

    by joshuavance1701

    Star Trek by it's very concept can be about anything right? I think this poster just about captures that concept. It could be anything - and more importantly, it's a talk piece. People are talking, and that's the whole point. If the poster were floating heads above a starship with a rainbow sprite lens flare effect, there would be half as many posts. I like Bob Peak too, I painted the God damn Star Trek- The Motion Picture on a 3X4 ft canvas. (It's for sale if there are any movie poster/art fans) so, I can speak to the matter of poster art.

WE know a good film, we appreciate a good story and a well written script...and those things have been seriously lacking for some time.</p><p> Yes we are cynical and mean and obnoxious...would you rather we just rolled over and took it up the ass? We spend good money on movies..and we demand a quality product. If you paid $12 bucks for a decent lunch...and they shoved a microwave Swanson dinner at you...wouldn't you complain..or would you just say.."well...that sucked...and it sucked last time...and the time before...but next time will be GREAT!"

    The Design

    by Ruthless Berserk

    Sorry but I think there was a major ball-droppage with the new ship design. I don't like at all the truncated engineering hull, it looks unbalanced as a whole. Comparitively speaking, there is little space to live in anyway on the Enterprise. It looked great in the 60's when we didn't know anything, but in practice I think it would have been an ergonomic mess, not to mention offering little protection to any of the passengers.

    "Hey, don't forget that new Trek movie is coming out!"

    by IAmJack'sUserID

    I don't know. I think I would want my poster to do more than that -- you know, to actually interest and excite people into wanting to see the movie, not merely "reminding" them it's coming out. Things like colors, faces, characters, etc. are good at that, not some black and white photoshop-filtered half ass pic of the Enterprise looking like it's firing splooge. It really is one of the worst posters I've ever seen!

    <p>A poster is supposed to sell the film, not destroy any and all interest in it. Whoever approved this one sheet should be fired--even if it's Abrams.</p> <p>Not to sound like an old fart, but whatever happened to good poster art? Look at the posters for Star Wars, Jaws, Alien, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Big Trouble in Little China, Blade Runner, Network. Back then they actually used the poster to sell the film. Now they don't even bother. Stupid asses.</p>

    by Alan_Moore

    I also don't care for this poster, but so what? It's just a poster, and a lot of the first ten movies had weak posters too. I couldn't be more excited about the movie itself, that's all that counts. I think every real Trek fan is pulling for it to be a success!

    There is no crying at AINT-IT-COOL-NEWS!!!<p> But seriously.<p> Bob. Relax. You are still going to make your house payments. You will not be affected by the economy, like the rest of us. Whatever happens with the movie, you will be able to go on to the next beloved franchise to reboot and completely alienate and piss-off it's long-lasting core audience.<p> I expect this film to do phenomenal business--I think it will rival Revenge of the Sith in money earned and quality of the film. That too was a film that had an "important" story to tell and ended up being a greatest-hits moments of nostalgia for a superior product long since dead with young actors acting stiffly as they pretend to be characters that were played by better actors a generation ago. The film will be a hit, because we reward mediocrity in this culture with highest honors.<p> So, relax and cash your check.<p> PS--I know you were kidding about feeling hurt.

    It's not the best Star Trek movie poster ever (THE VOYAGE HOME owns that title) but it's different, and I appreciate them going away from the "floating heads" and photoshop motif of the last few movies.

    THE STAR TREK UNIVERSE IS DEAD, TREKKIES!

    by Leafar the Lost

    I just want the Trekkies to realize that. You might say that the opening of this film is a sort of Apocolypse for them. The reason I say this is because I was once friends with a Trekkie, back when I at least attempted to be social. He worked at McDonalds, and he lived in an apartment above his mother's house, which meant that he lived with his mother. It was kind of cool back then, because I could get some free food from him. However, I think our friendship took a turn for the worse when I visited his apartment. He had every tape of the original series. He had all of the movies. He had all of the books, and they were lined against the wall in various piles. He had a Star Fleet uniform. I recall he was an officer of some sort, but I forget his rank. He also knew a vast amount of Star Trek trivia. He knew everything about the various Quadrants (there are four he tolf me) and the history of the Federation and how it diverged from our history, etc. After listening to him talk for over two hours, I realized that he had nothing else to talk about. He wasn't the least bit interested in other types of sci/fi. He actually looked down on Star Wars fans (it wasn't technical enough he said). He had no interest in music, non-Star Trek movies, politics, art, and women. Of course, he could admire the sexiness of various Star Trek women, and I think he really liked Yeoman Janice Rand, who was played by Grace Lee Whitney. He was nice enough fellow, but he had been taken over by Star Trek, and his obsession with it consumed his life. I have not seen this person in many years, but it wouldn't surprise me if he was still in that apartment above his mother's house, and his whole world is about to end. The Star Trek Universe that he has studied his entire life is dead. JJ Abrams has thrown canon out the door. He actually tried to make a good sci/fi movie that non-Trekkies will enjoy. I will probably enjoy the movie, but the Trekkies who see it will be vibrating in a combination of shock, rage, and horror. After 10 movies and countless hours of television, I don't think their minds can handle the fact that it wasn't real...it was just a fucking TV show...and some guy changed it all to make a fucking movie...hahahahaha...

    Does anyone REALLY worry about what the poster or the box art on the DVD look like?? Does it REALLY take away from the movie?? Who cares, worry about the movie.

    That poster is the shit

    by malificus

    I love it. Great use of white space, makes the black rich and the S.T. title pop right off the background. The whole design of this movie, from the new/old costumes on down to the transporter effect has been kick-fucking-ASS. I still have the sinking feeling the movie will have a hollow center. It will be the Cadbury Egg of movies, it will seem like a great idea and when you see someone tuck into one and get a load of that fakee yolk inside you'll really wanna try it, but then when you actually get your own and take that first bite you'll realize the yolk doesn't taste like much of anything at all, and while not bad it just isn't as good as you needed it to be.

    I actually like Nemesis

    by Jesiah

    When I first saw the trailer it looked very interesting, and I know a lot of people in the audience were surprised how dark and gloomy and a little action packed the trailer made the film look. Picard's clone Shinzon and his feelings of isolation and abandonment and wanting to connect with the person he thought could be someone understanding really resonated with me. The way SPOILER FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T SEEN THE FLICK Data sacrificed himself for Picard was very touching, and I kind of looked forward to seeing more of the angle with Data's "brother" B4 having most of his memories downloaded into him; yeah it would've been a cop out cheesy way of resurrecting Data but I like the character so if they leave him gone or resurrect him its all the same to me. Data died better than Kirk that's for damn sure. The only thing I didn't like was when they showed Picard as a young cadet st the academy he had no hair like he had been bald his whole life. On a side note I saw Nemesis on friday December 13 and ended up losing my wallet that night; now I have a chain wallet.

So, Apologies to everyone.<p> Poster Guy--sorry your cool little design doesn't seem like a final release poster--it is a cute little teaser image and if it was just that, then people would probably like it more.<p> Orci--sorry, man. The Clonus thing was settled out of court--shouldn't have brought it up (it is kind of funny though that most people know that film from MST3K...)<p> So, I am out. Gotta go pee fire for a couple hours then pass out.

The crew is simply beamed to wherever they need to go and explore. The only time they travel in ships or vehicles is for ceremonial purposes. An homage to the past. They are no longer confined to a galaxy or a universe. They can now traverse to neighboring universes as well and have them all mapped out.

    Everyone who hates The Poster can Suck My Dick

    by victor82

    The poster is iconic minimalist art that gets the idea that change has come to Trek across to the mass audience. When Leno does a blowup doll joke while making a joke about the Genki Trek perfumes, Paramount knows it has work to do to get the regulars in to the movie. The poster gets the idea of motion, change, and yes, the fact that the Enterprise itself is in flux and an instrument of change. That's why it's black. I like the British poster, too, with Kirk as Brando from "The Wild Bunch". Haters, suck my dick.

    The key to a great movie poster is "Iconic"...

    by BurnHollywood

    Damned dummies in marketing didn't even notice that Abrams handed them an iconic scene on a silver platter: Young Kirk gazing wistfully at the Enterprise as it's being assembled.<p> Frame that with the tagline and STAR TREK and you've got your poster. Not a "floating head" in sight, either...<p> I don't even like the idea of this movie, and even I could figure that one out...

    Hey, "conspiracy..."

    by Alan_Moore

    You say "people don't expect much outta life." I'd say that goes double for you. I mean, you're using your time and energy trying to insult someone in a lame talkback. In other words, you aren't accomplishing a damn thing. I bet you piss in the wind a lot too. At least Orci is trying. I am a real Trek fan and I know he is too, so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. I, for one, will not criticize before I've seen the finished product. Meanwhile, "conspiracy," you're just another nameless, faceless, cipher with an undeserved sense of self-importance. Enjoy typing your next post no one will read.

    Yeah right, that'll really sell the movie!!!

    by alucardvsdracula

    As an abstract teaster fine, but that ain't no MOVIE poster boy. Not a good sign when they're trying to sell a Star Trek movie like it was a subtitled art film. Nope. FUCKIN SUCKS.

    IAmJack'sUserID..What I find amusing is...

    by conspiracy

    that someone with a screen name "Alan_Moore", probably a tribute of sorts to one of the greatest story tellers of the last 25 years, can defend a group of writers whose idea of a good story is Pissing Robots who speak in modern slang, and whom think comedy is a scene about masturbation. The REAL Alan Moore would be far more critical of Orci and Co. than I am. I at least said I HOPE I am wrong...Moore would most likely say they are without hope...IF he even took notice of such pop-tart trash at all.</p><p>Oh..and Alan...obviously you read my post, I mean...you can't respond without reading right? You will probably read this one too.</p><p> AS I SAID..I hope Orci pulls some quality out of his ass...it'd be a first, and that this turns out to be a good movie....but I'm NOT getting my hopes up when it was penned by dudes that wrote for fucking Xena Princess Warrior.

    Vintage?

    by Embeedeuce

    My problem w/ the poster is that it doesn't sync up w/ the movie. This poster is retro, black and white, minimalist. Whereas what we've seen of the movie is anything but. It's high energy and vividly colorful.

  • March 29, 2009, 2:33 p.m. CST

    I'm not impressed

    by Ultra Menace

    That's got to be one of the lamest posters of all time. Photoshop, Blur, Smuge ans Streak. Real frigging original (not). Movie poster artist today are the most uninspired bunch of hacks ever. Except Struzan. Where the hell is the original ART these days? That poster couldn't sell me sterno in a paper bag. It may sell you a new pair of glasses so you can try to see what this BLUR is. Prue crap.

    "Popular opinion" says this poster sucks? Who gives a frog's fat ass WHAT 'popular opinion' says besides douchy little nothings like you? 'Popular opinion' wouldn't have even supported making this film in the first place, but then again popular opinion says The Dark Knight was the best super hero movie ever made and Transformers kicked ass. Hell, you can't even spell feces properly which is kinda amusing since I'm sure that's what your pull ups are packed full of. 'Ultra Menace' indeed, more like Phantom Menace-OH! See? I drew a comparison between your lame screen name and a movie that popular opinion says SUCKED! Off to bed with you douchy, I'm sure whatever middle school gym teacher that's ass-riding that bad attitude into you will want you well rested when he fills your butt crack with man-mayo.

    by Thommoth

    If it was very retro in design. I miss posters that can be considered artwork. For a project like this film, I bet the company behind the design of this poster charged a fortune. I think more designers should use more creative techniques like screen-printing, which I know is out of date, but beautiful non the less. Instead of creating crappy stuff like this.

    Sounds like you've put a lot of thought into it. Of course, what else is there to think about when you have your face shoved into a pillow (or the wall of an alleyway). Anyway, you like this poster so that's really all there is to say about the type of mentality we are dealing with here.

    Actually a few people here have used phrases like "this poster doesn't entice me to see the movie" I'm not sure if you are just an idiot or you can't read. Oh BTW dipshit, me saying "that" is my two cents in your penny debate. (The whole, "WE" are here to discuss/debate it portion of your pudding induced diatribe) Use it to buy a clue and try reading the posts before you make yourself sound like a jackass. KK??

    Saying that the poster is bad enough to put someone off a movie AND saying that the poster doesn't spark interest ARE. TWO. DIFFERENT. THINGS. Congratulations on your back-to-back failings. Very well done. Hopefully your surfing is better than your reading comprehension.

    However, that poster was probably a teaser poster as this poster (http://io9.com/photogallery/trekposters/1001100393) is much better. Thing is that this new Star Trek doesn't have a good poster to it's bad poster like ST5 does.

    Weird because I said... "you are an idiot if you let the poster decide if you will see a movie" YOU replied... "I don't think I've seen ONE SINGLE FUCKING PERSON say they're not going to see the movie based off the poster" Then I said... "actually a few people here HAVE used phrases like that" Are you just a complete dipshit or are you typing for attention?!?! Odd since I NEVER said the poster does/doesn't spark interest. I just said you probably don't care about Star Trek at all if you let the art on the poster make your decision to buy a ticket. The voices in your head fighting again??!?! Try to figure out which one I am before you attach my name to your FABRICATION.

    What does a person's mentality have to do with whether they find something visually pleasing? So if I like the poster ergo i must be stupid, is that your point? Because if it is, and you actually took the time to write it for all to see, you must be one fucking idiot biscuit swimming in stupid gravy. What jerk-ass actually thinks one-sheets will make or kill a movie anyway? Just wait until the next time you go to the local mega-multiplex and see that long row of movie posters along the wall and see if this fucking poster doesn't pop right out of the crowd. It will, and you'll know I called it, and it will bother you, and it should, because you too are a douche.
