Facebook Into Darkness + movie tagline
 
http://www.facebook.com/OfficialStarTrekIntoDarkness

Everyone on Facebook can now "like" the movie for official info and updates.

I love the tagline: "May 17 2013. Darkness is revealed."

Is the guy on the far left of that image supposed to be Simon Pegg/Scotty? That's who I figure it is, only through the process of elimination, but it doesn't look like him.

Here's what I see, from RIGHT TO LEFT:

Anton Yelchin/Chekov
John Cho/Sulu
Chris pine/Kirk
Zack Quinto/Spock
Zoe Saldana/Uhura
Karl Urban/McCoy

then...
Pegg/Scotty?

I don't recognize it as Pegg's face. Am I just not seeing that face right? Is it just me?

It's Pegg as Scotty at far left. That's one of the same images used for promos of the last movie.

How do we know this is official and not just a fan page claiming to be?

The graphics in the banner look like they're just reusing one from the last movie.

Thanks. I see it now in that second link. I knew it HAD to be Pegg (they wouldn't show 6 of the 7 on a poster. Maybe a poster would have only Pine and Quinto, or Pine, Quinto, & Urban -- but they wouldn't show only 6 of the 7).

However, I just couldn't recognized Pegg's stylized face on that poster in the OP. I think it's the eyes and the mouth; he just looks..."odd".

That's a good question. Anyone see this getting a mention on any of Paramount's official pages or reliable sources for Trek news? Doesn't look like TrekMovie has anything yet, nor TrekToday.

From the page...

This page is the official page for the movie, sanctioned under CBS, Viacom, and Paramount (where applicable). We apologize to any fan pages who received a relinquishing letter and were startled by it. It's part of the introductory process when we release an official page.

Doesn't seem legit to me. It's linking to imdb as the movie website...

Hm, I'm not seeing where that appears.

Edit:

Wait. Got it.

Still, though, I'd be a little more assured about authenticity if there were something like that in their "About" section, along with a linkback to Paramount or to a Paramount page for the film. So far, this seems a bit amateur.

They're doing the contest posted about here: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=191119 (there's a link on the FB STID page too)

Could it be that the FB page was launched a little early for this competition? Or is the competition a sham too?

Should a Facebook page look more corporate? What do you think is wrong about it?

Looks like the IMDb link on the "About" page has now been replaced with a link to:
http://www.startrekintodarkness.com/
Which currently goes nowhere, generating an error message:

Mhm.

Since the FB page just went live today, I'm hoping www.startrekintodarkness.com will come online soon!
