New Star Trek Posters

November 10, 2008

Paramount has today given us new Star Trek teaser posters: Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine in black-and-white Trek glory. These aren’t very different from the colour-tinted teasers from a few weeks back, but give us a slightly different look.

Chris Pine is still doing that oh-so-mysterious thing he did in the last poster, and does not look very Kirk-like. In other set photos and in some YouTube interview video that’s been popping up, though, he looks a little more Shatneresque. Although he does seem to be pretty tall. That will take some getting used to.

There’s been some criticism of Quinto’s Spock makeup, but I think that stems more from the airbrushed photos used in EW and Empire than the way he will actually look onscreen. In these photos, the makeup looks more subtle. But it’s clear he’s had some prosthetic work done around the eyes. And although that is supposedly his real hair, it looks like polyester.

Meanwhile, don’t forget the new trailer; it will be with Quantum of Solace on Friday. Apparently there’s a new Watchmen trailer along for the ride. Life is rough.
